Good Morning and welcome to Wednesday, the best day of the week!!!! Well, it's one of my favorite days anyway!! Today I am showcasing two lovely ladies that you probably know, but in the off chance that you don't, you are truly in for a treat.
First up is KayY of http://kaythesewinglawyer.blogspot.com/. She's a lawyer by day and seamstress extraordinaire by night. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING she does is done with an eye on perfection. Case in point, take a look at this swimsuit,
"In 2012, I embarked on my biggest project to date, co-founding a fabric social enterprise called Weaving Destination. The social enterprise bit is that all of the fabric is ethically made and all profits go to support an indigenous women's weaving collective in Assam, BTC, India. This collective is important because it provides financial independence, support services and sustainable employment for women that have been victims of trafficking, that are living with HIV/AIDS or that are female migrant returnees. Weaving Destination is really the culmination of my two passions: working to address the root causes of violence against women and children and being creative through sewing! We were very lucky to have received the Melting Pot's Social Innovation Incubator Award for 2012-2013."
Isn't this just incredible?!! You can find their Etsy store here, http://www.etsy.com/shop/WeavingDestination
Please check out the store. The scarves are really beautiful. Remember, there are a lot of things you can do with a rectangle ;-)
