I am sure you all know that my sewing machine is my life. Not only does it make my cosplays, but it is what I use to do all my commissions, which is my primary income, and last week it started to malfunction. I put it through a lot and even with how much I take it apart and clean it and oil it and keep up with it, it has finally decided to break down. Something is loose or bent inside the machinery and breaking threads and ripping holes in fabric and while taking it in to get looked at seems like an option, most of the time it is just as expensive as getting a new machine. It's actually very upsetting because running a business is stressful as it is and when your most used tool for managing your business is failing it makes my head explode.
So I just wanted to say that I honestly was hesitant about making and maintaining a Patreon account and at times because I do work full time doing commissions and managing a Patreon worried me and I wonder if I am making it worth it for you guys. But at the end of the month when I have a little extra money, it has already saved my ass a couple times and this time I'm going to put that money to good use and get a new sewing machine. Which LITERALLY means that YOU GUYS are saving my ass again. You have NO idea how much I appreciate that. NO idea <3
If you guys have any ideas on things you'd like to see here, please let me know. I want to make my patreon interesting for you guys! Tutorials? Costume ideas? Let me know and please know I appreciate you guys!
