While working at a clients office last week, their lack of fabric/sample library was hindering organization, so after the office closed for the day I took an Uber to Lowe's and built them one. Exactly like their display company proposed to build one, except instead of their $11k bid, I built a better one for $550. Had to test it for strength of course, ha! Came out pretty good, don’t you agree?
Looking back to last month when keynote speaking at the Colorado Apparel Manufacturing Summit, about the challenges of Manufacturing in the US, let alone Colorado where resources are limited. Sure I didn’t rub everyone the right way that night, but sometimes the truth hurts. There ARE opportunities, but not all are as streamlined as if you were set up closer to other parts of the manufacturing puzzle. Met some other great folks who were interested in paths I could help with, and bring their ideas to life, or streamline their process. The passion is real, let’s get it done. #werxwork#colorado#design#appareldesign#designer#manufacturing
