We’re haunted by this week’s design meeting coming up. There’s a giant black monster under the bed called “THE INVISIBLE ZIPPER” that continues to haunt us every week. The experience of attempting this may take us like an alien abduction, never to be the same again. If our eyes seem glossy and unresponsive after this weekend, just keep walking. We may have been taken by the zipper.
On the brighter side, we’ve learned it pays to always wear a smile, and to never be afraid to look stupid asking questions. The amazing staff at Pfaff not only took the time to show us around our own (ancient and inherited) machine, but to give a full zipper demonstration stitch by stitch. Not even the slightest pursed lip or condescending frown at the idea of two women starting a textile-based company who don’t actually sew… Thanks, Pfaff.
