Hi, y'all!

I'm Teka England  and I'm a wandering Costume Technician. For the last five years I've been working in academic theater, and putting clothes on people as a member of IATSE 112, but before that I was a puppetry soft goods tech,Blue Man Group head-polisher, and a historic researcher/boat nerd.

I'm also a relentless agitator for the concept of STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts, mathematics), and an experimental archaeologist. Not only do I want to find (and play with) new and interesting concepts in fabrics and threads, I want to ensure that the historic methods of doing things aren't forgotten.

That's where you come in! By supporting me you loosen up some of the time I might otherwise be freelancing around my academic job, which allows me more time to research, fiddle, and otherwise discover new and interesting things to in turn, share with you.

Hey! You've just earned a hand felted thing!  (It may be a pouch, it may be a coaster, but it'll be formerly soggy, made of wool, and multicolored, that's for sure!)

Goals
2% complete
The first big goal is to Get Teka a Newer Camera. None of mine are new enough to take good videos, and my phone just doesn't have enough memory to handle a full length tutorial. I want to do an entire series of Basic Sewing Skills videos, and y'all will get to see them first!
