Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Happy Turkey-Tofurkey Day everyone!
I can’t believe how fast this year is passing! It feels like only yesterday I was blanching beans and canning tomatoes. Here it is Thanksgiving already, when did that happen?
As a way to kick off the holiday shopping season I am offering **FREE SHIPPING** (in the US and a discount for all international destinations) in all three of my shops!!! The sale runs till Monday, Nov 30th at midnight.
Be sure to stop by and get your shop on!

Watching Your Back

It is an unspoken rule among the stitching community that you NEVER post pictures of another designers work, especially without giving proper credit. It was brought to my attention that images of my work, this skirt in particular, along with several other talented seamstresses creations have been posted on another individuals Flickr account. No photo credits were given and what’s worse she is allowing viewers to assume the pictured items were in fact created by her. She even responded to a commenter about creating a piece for them just like the one pictured.

Many of the artists who created the actual pieces along with several members of the stitching community have commented on where to purchase the pictured pieces found on her account. I personally requested my images be removed due to not having permission from the copyright holder to post them, as well as sent her an email about the blatant lack of respect she has displayed.

My advice to you Miss A.K. educate yourself on Copyright laws before you find yourself in a whole lot of legal trouble. Further more if you feel the need to post pictures of your sewing ability and talent how about using images of YOUR work that you yourself have created and not the work of other artists!

A New Treasure

After much deliberation and encouragement from friends, family and the like I’ve decided to embark on another creative endeavor. MyDarkChamber has come to fruition in the form of an Etsy shop. I started listing images this past weekend and was excited to be notified that a print I posted last night made it into a treasury!

I was beyond thrilled to receive such positive feedback so quickly! Trust me, I’m no Ansel Adams by any stretch, nor do I consider myself a photographer. I just tend to end up with a few interesting compositions now and then. I figure if I like them maybe someone else will to!
