Official Launch Party!

We're passing around the virtual chips and dip as we speak! Maybe something a little stronger for some of you. ;-) Hooray, it's March 1st! The deadline which has been looming large over both of us has finally arrived (and we've been exchanging emails, PMs, and phone calls with increasing frequency in the last few days). And we are so incredibly flattered that so many of you are excited with us and have signed up for our newsletter and liked us on Facebook.

Speaking of which... if you haven't signed up for our newsletter or liked us on Facebook... you can do so right from this blog! See all those nifty buttons on the right hand side of the page? As the Director of Social Media and Emergency Preparedness, I added all those (probably during the combination blizzard/ice storm that kept us inside for three crazymaking days). And Meg, as the Director of Google Research, has been busy figuring out all the kinks in our website, not to mention looking up the instruction manual for MY camera that I have had for five years and still barely know how to use...

We are so excited to be sharing with you: it's the brainchild of our collective obsessions with American Girl dolls and fabric and rickrack, and it's been all that either one of us have thought or talked about since the end of January when Meg hatched her nefarious plan. And both of us, by the way, have very helpful and supportive spouses: Meg's husband Rob has been invaluable with regards to website design, and my husband Matt has contributed a lot of valuable feedback regarding marketing! I don't think either one of them realized when they married us how many hours they would spend talking Kindred Thread, or that they would live in homes with a dolly or two in every room!

So without further ado, Meg and I are very pleased to bring you...

  4. Love the site, sorry I missed out on the aqua feedsack dress, which looks lovely on Kit. Still chewing on which of the other dresses might reduce my PayPal account, as there are some lovely options.
