Yep, I embroidered at another event for Madewell- it went really well, a lot of people placed orders!
I have two more embroidery gigs scheduled. The first, for the summer New York Magazine Weddings edition. Cool, huh? I'm working on it right now... The second, at the Madewell store in Soho on September, as part of the Fashion's Night Out, which kicks off New York's Fashion Week. Whoo hoo!
Help me out, people! Spread the word, give people my the address to my Etsy store, book me for embroidery classes or events! All that I'm doing is great, but I need more if I'm to make this sort of work even part-way sustain me.
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
