Hey! I'm Annika Victoria. A few years ago I decided that I wanted to try and make at least one type of every garment that you have in a typical wardrobe. Since then I've made t-shirts, bags, bralettes, underwear, swimwear, dresses, crop tops, hats, bodysuits, skirts, modified shoes and much more - and I plan to keep going until I've mastered the craft! I'm also a thrift-shopping evangelist and I like to make fun of fashion trends/memes such as those clear jeans that seemed to be everywhere in 2017. (Seriously. What's up, designers?). All this happens mostly on my Youtube.

In addition to all that, I'm passionate about equality and I speak about/educate about disabilities and chronic invisible illnesses (of which I have!), largely through my Instagram account!

So what fresh hell is Patreon and why should I pay for content that’s already free?
Patreon is a platform that allows content creators to continue making the content you love. By supporting your favourite content creators you're allowing them to both pay their bills AND constantly improve by: purchasing better filming equipment, being able to afford a studio space to film in, hiring staff to handle the business side, or editing, or filming, etc etc. Think of yourself as a business investor, or a patron of the arts!

As I hinted at above, I also live with a disabling chronic illness called "Takayasu's Arteritis" (read more about that here), which among other issues causes chronic pain, fatigue and has also limited my future employment options somewhat. I had to give up on my dream of becoming a research scientist because there was no way my body could handle 8+ hour days in a laboratory. So with some sadness but also some excitement, in 2016 I decided that I would make this video-making thing my full-time job. Often limited to my own house or unable to work for a string of days because of fatigue and pain, I am still able to put 20-30 hours into every video (plus the many hours of work that goes on for the business-side of things), because I'm now my own boss & can determine my own working schedule.

Of course, I also don't want you to see me as some charity case. Donate because you see some value in what I do. Donate because you want to become a vital component of this community. Just know that your donation will also be helping out in a HUGE WAY.

But what do I get out of it?
Aside from a deep sense of satisfaction & contributing to continued and improved videos, supporters will get access to an exclusive feed featuring early access to all video content, patreon-only vlogs, sneak peeks of DIYs and clothes I’m working on and a patreon-only community forum. **(This is all subject to my health status by the way - when I'm particularly sick I won't be able to provide as much extra content!)**
All my current content and future videos will remain totally free if you cannot be a supporter, and I totally understand that not everybody can!

You can still view all my tutorials for free here - don't worry, I'm not going to start charging for them if you are unable to support me at this time! You can set a pledge from as little as $1 per month and you can cancel or change your pledge at any time.

Thanks so much for reading, and for all the other types of support and motivation you wonderful human beings have given me over the past few years as I've tried to make this work!

Important FAQs:
1. You can still view all my tutorials for free here.
2. You can cancel or change your pledge at any time.

Goals
80% complete
I can hire some help!!
There are so many things that I have to spend a lot of time on, that are important to do, but also mean I can't spend that time sewing or filming tutorials - writing [CC] captions for my videos to make them accessible (which can take up to a whole day!), EDITING, managing my website, creating graphics, managing make thrift buy requests, managing and promoting merchandise, managing emails, etc etc ETC.

At this goal, I will be able to hire assistance. This will free up a LOT of my creative time, basically meaning I can make more videos and tutorials for ya'll ???!
