Welcome to May…..

April showers bring May flowers… If this is so… what does May snow bring?

We missed the snow here at Lucky 7 Studios – as we were travelling to Georgia and back. However, we did find a hail storm on the way down through West Virginia and 80 degrees on the way back. 

Today as I write this the sky is blue and sun is shining bright! Many of our trees have leafed out and the strawberries and blueberries have bloomed to bring us fresh fruit soon. 

So what is happening at Lucky 7 Studios. 

  • The website will be under construction one page at a time beginning Monday May 17. 
  • 4 blog posts – two are continuing the Costume Era Timeline (Greek and Roman), the other two, you will have to stick around and find out.
  • 2 podcasts – catch them here
  • A handful of “short posts” on our regular social media platforms – FacebookTwitterInstagram
  • The F/W collection will be released but not as a ready to wear – more of a one of a kind. Each garment will be available for custom sizing and a handful of fabric options. 
  • There will be 1 live Q & A on May 20th at 2pm on our YouTube.
  • Finally, there will be a handful of video recordings from a Zoom weekly “Paint with Us” on a group Facebook page – Sneak a Peek Artists. 

Welcome to April, Second Quarter & Some News

April 9th, a little late but worth the wait. Last weeks scheduled posts are still sitting here ready to be typed and ready for y’all to read –> Keep your eyes peeled…

So, it’s April. Time flies when you are having fun – or doing what you love. I love what I do – it uses all parts of my brain – most times simultaneously!

The last Zoom for the Burnley and Trowbridge Half-Sized Mantua Gown was last week. Many things did I learn … and many I knew… The best part was there are others doing the same thing at the same time = comradere! [I was going to post a photo of where I was in the process…. but I cannot seem to find one.]

This also marks the second quarter of the year. Time to evaluate where we were, where we are, and what we’ve done – that has worked, and what has not! As y’all are benefactors of all of Lucky 7’s socials, what do you want to see in the Second Quarter?

Here are some of what you can expect in April 2021:

  • Monday Motivations – nothing better than to be motivated going into Monday!
  • Weekly blog
  • Weekly Newsletter – you can sign up on the contact us page
  • YouTube Q & A’s/discussion
    • April 14th
    • April 28th
  • 2 Podcasts – topics to be determined (is there something you would like to know or discuss?)
  • Fashion History Series (we will finish up the ancient this month)
    • Minoan
    • Greek (this one has a special interest)
  • Teasers about the F/W Collection that will be released in May
  • Total Website Reconstruction
  • Promotions
  • Surprises
  • and more…..

Make sure you are following on all our socials… You do not want to be in the dark or miss something….

Spring is in the air…. I can feel it everywhere…

Sitting here listening to the birds sing in the tree and shrub outside my office window… the sun is shining ever so bright… blue skies above… alas, and the clocks go back this weekend… here we will all be confused… 

This post will be short… there are many patterns to be made and muslins to sew for the F/W 2021 RTW Collection… Along with client garments and any other number of things… 

If you are on Instagram and looking for a way to be active, you should follow @pinsent_tailoring and his #modernlessmarch – it has been fun to see all the topics and how people respond. I will be following along as we move through the next week. Today’s topic is #acceptance. This has been a year of hard lessons and acceptance is the key and has been the way to move from day to day. Accepting life may never fully return to pre-covid and creating different ways to work together from a distance. 

I am grateful for covid in some regards, it provided me the opportunity to “do what I love” not necessarily what my college education provided. I absolutely love designing, making, sewing, working out how to make something work. It has also afforded me the time to find my niches and “meet” some really great people. I look forward to the future when we can all get together and celebrate. 

If you missed it, there was a live Q & A session this past week — https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAJ5-WFNIL1vGqJKQELMN_Q – this link will take you to our YouTube Channel. Be sure to subscribe – this way you will always know (first) when new videos are forthcoming. 

Ah, yes. My client received her dress yesterday. “It is beautiful” “It is perfect” are just some of the ways she expressed how happy she is with the garments. 

Be on the lookout for some promotional give-a-ways and referral gifts. That post will be out next week. We have also added a podcast to our Repertoire of ways to keep up with us.  In the meantime, find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter

Did you watch any of the designers during fashion week? 

Live Q and A today on YouTube

Good Morning all my fellow followers and some that may just come across this. This should have been out yesterday. None the less…. Today at 2:00 PM EST there will be a Live Q & A session on Youtube https://youtu.be/IYFiKbnzAF0. This is the time to drop in and say hello. If you cannot make it but have a question that you would like answered, send it via email to jennifer.adams@lucky-7-studios.com and it will be answered during the live event.
