This isn’t easy, and not because I learned Premiere Rush in a half day, or because failure is painful, but because I never like to ask for help. But I need your help to to take Kitty Calash where I want to go. To that end, I’ve launched a Kickstarter project to help me finish and publish a quilted waistcoat pattern, design more patterns, and prototype more bonnets, reticules, and accessories.

Maybe Kickstarter isn’t your thing: maybe you prefer swag. Well, there’s a Teespring store in case you feel like letting people you’re a Known Bonnet Wearer, or that All Your Fantasies are Documented, or that you, too, Will Humiliate Self for History.

I know not everyone can contribute financially, but word of mouth counts in this business– it’s how I get a lot of my work– so even if you can’t make a pledge, please share.
