Purpose of the fundraiser:
My name is Sarah :) Hello! I am an artist and designer in the Pensacola, FL, area, and I need help to get my small business going. I work full time, but paying for rent and school takes most of my money and I don't have family whom I can rely on for help, so I am reaching out to the public. It has long been my dream to run my own business as a clothing designer. Right now, I am trying to get my foot in the door as a designer of wedding gowns, prom gowns, and formal wear, but, even if I was to focus on casual clothing, fabric, supplies, and machine maintenance is expensive and completely out of my financial reach. I want to be my own person so bad, to make people smile with the things I make, and to contribute to my local economy. Will you help my dream come true?
What will donations cover?:
All donations will go into my business, 100%. This includes the purchase of quality fabrics (ie.dupioni silk, fine laces, satin, velvet, etc), supplies (ie. thread, zippers, buttons, beads, sequins, dyes, etc.), maintenance for two sewing machines and an overlock machine, maintenance of my studio (16'x20' work room), and marketing.
Thank you for reading, I am truly humbled!
