We had a beautiful sample woven for us at the Marshfield School of Weaving, and chose to showcase it as a scarf - adding a fringe. This spiraling vine motif is my favorite crepe pattern weave so far.
We continue working with local models, to show our prototypes to advantage. A big "Thank You" to these wonderful community members who enjoy presenting the work of local craftsmen and women - appreciating the values behind all that we do.
Now we are ready for the next step. To move Winter Moose out of R & D and into the world of wholesale and retail, we are planning to launch a new Kickstarter.
Our hope is to raise enough capital to secure our Winter Moose brand name, and create a small line for retail, featuring 100% Vermont alpaca cloth. We are designing some men's slacks, women's skirts, and button down shirts and scarves for all. A vest and soft caps will also be available. We are very excited about having more fabric woven, more pieces made, and connecting these unique items with future owners.
Earlier this month, a friend offered to help us get started on the Kickstarter, with some video footage. Right before the shoot, my new Black and Decker iron died. It was less than 6 months old! I had to get the job done - and I had these old fashioned irons... I had even cleaned them up a little, not imagining that they would come in handy. They worked perfectly! After using them, I am almost ready to keep doing so.
We will keep you all posted regarding our Kickstarter Launch Date.
