Plan Early

Planning is essential when it comes to managing production timelines. Start planning as early as possible and make sure you have all the necessary information. Create a detailed production schedule, including every step of the manufacturing process—and stick to it!

Communicate with Suppliers

Communication is key to ensuring that your production timeline is on track. You should communicate regularly with your suppliers, including fabric mills and manufacturers, to ensure that they are meeting your expectations. Make sure you ask for regular updates on progress and inform them immediately if there are any changes to the schedule.

Utilize Technology

Technology is a valuable tool when it comes to managing production timelines. You can use various software to track the progress of each stage of the manufacturing process and set reminders for key deadlines. Additionally, using cloud-based software ensures that everyone involved in the production process can access the latest updates and communicate with each other in real-time.

Quality Control

Quality control is an essential aspect of managing production timelines. Check the quality of the fabrics and the finished products at every stage of the manufacturing process. Ensure that any issues are identified and resolved immediately to avoid delays.

How it all started

Screenshot 2023-09-11 at

It all started with a swollen face and a sewing machine.

While recovering from just having had my wisdom teeth removed, with two bulky ice packs bandaged around my expanding cheeks, I fell in love with sewing.

From that moment on a fire was lit within me, and I would never see my world the same. 


Fast forward years later and suddenly I woke up in a corporate cubicle, staring at an excel spreadsheet, and trying really hard to be someone I wasn’t. Like REALLY HARD.


But as the years went on, my desire to sew & create continued to grow. And yet I continued to try on different personas and search for that perfect position within the corporate world that would fulfill me. 


Then finally it hit me. I realized that I was never going to find that dream position in the corporate world. I had to create it. 

So with just a small whisper of a belief that it just MIGHT be possible for me to start my own business, and live life on my own terms, I quit my stable corporate job. 


I had such little belief in myself that during my exit interview I even said to my boss, “if my business doesn’t work out within the next few months, will you take me back?” How sad!


Thankfully I quickly realized that listening to that small whisper within, and betting on myself, was (and still is) the absolute BEST decision I could have ever made.
