First off, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has supported Sweet Mildred so far. It has been almost a year since I have really been pushing myself, and it looks like it has payed off: I just quit my job.
I guess I should say it wasn’t a great job. I was waiting tables and bar tending three double shifts a week. While it is an optimistic dream that I will be able to support myself someday solely off of my sewing, this is one step in the direction towards that. And all that I can do is to keep continuing.
Not working those extra 33 hours a week is going to mean a lot of changes for Sweet Mildred. You can expect a quicker turn around time on your orders (sorry to everyone who had to wait for theirs, I am doing the best I can!). It also means more product updates, including an original print coming up soon in the future. I also have a late sale event planned for super soon! (I hope!) This also means that I will be traveling to more conventions. I am happy to announce that again this year I will be attending Kotoricon and Katsucon, with more and better stock. So I look forward to meeting everyone and if you are going to these conventions, please stop by to say, “hi”!
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out and supported me at Otakon. It was a great success and I had a really nice time talking to everyone and getting to know you. I also had an incredible table partner, and I hope to be a part of the artist area in Otakon next year as well :3
