Speaking of fashion incubators, would Dave whoever is sending hate mail to the Toronto Fashion Incubator, please stop? This behavior doesn’t further the cause and they’re nice people over there. So what if they were ignoring me? I love what they’re doing there and I wish we could do more of that ourselves. Besides, I almost -almost- like it when people ignore me. The alternative could lead to changing the way I write. I wouldn’t be nearly as spunky. I like sitting in a dark balcony and sticking my tongue out at the man at the podium but I wouldn’t want to be there myself.
Speaking of ignoring me, Apparel has published their annual Buyer’s Guide for 2006. It won’t be available online until June but the download is free once it goes live. The listing grows more meager by the year. Since most of that is due to industry downsizing, one would think Apparel would become more proactive in seeking submissions for listings. Yours truly is not listed and I’m one of their top three traffic generators. Hmmmm.
Has anybody heard of an outfit called “Southwest Contractors” in Houston? Are they any good? Word has it that they have 15-20 stitchers and 25-30 machines so they’re nicely sized for DEs.
