Without the help of so many important people, this project never would have gotten off the ground.
Richard Siberell. This is the man from the coffee shop (see "Our Story" page). Meeting you that fated day is what made my decision. I had an idea and naive optimism. You were the voice of experience telling me I was onto something big and to go for it. Thank you for that and for all your help along the way.
Beth Treweek. You have not only been a fantastic patternmaker, but you have been an incredible mentor. Without your patience and lessons of how design and grading works, I would have given up long ago. Thank you.
Nancy Hagstrom. You're my number one editor and "oh shit" consultant. Thanks so much for always being there
Sam Robbins. My fitting model, retired roommate and confidant. Thank you for your assistance in developing the "Red Ants Square Pants" straight cut. You will always be my favorite anomaly.
Cheryl Evans and CSR Inc, the phenomenal manufacturers. Cheryl, thank you for believing in a vision, and taking the time to listen to my story. Your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated. And a huge thank you to all your very talented seamstresses. The pants couldn’t look any better!
Al Diebert. Your assistance through the MT Manufacturing Extension Center has been invaluable. Simply believing in me goes a long way. You are wonderful.
Josh and Jason Blomquist, Mari, Wendi Bianchini, Nolita Sweet, Deb Cades, and Jacque Graef thank you for all the very professional modeling and time on photo shoots. I'll pass on your resumes to any modeling agencies that are interested in your services.
Mark Terwilliger, your time and advice has been invaluable to my learning process. Thank you!
Hope Bentley, thanks for the brilliant marketing ideas!
Caroline Calhoun, my first volunteer inventory specialist, assistant manager and bag stamper. Thanks so much for all your help this summer. You're the best sister I could ever ask for. I love you so much you even made it on the list twice! Dork...I know.
Tyler Doshier with the Galletin Valley Development Center SBA and David Beasley, thank you very much for your help and guidance on my business plan.
Jennifer Cox and Classic Ink. The website looks wonderful, thank you so much for all your work and support.
Rich Zigrino and The Goat Rodeo. Thanks for all your patience in getting me through the process of making the website up and running.
Duncan Bullock. Thank you for your creativity on the fantastic logo!
Chad Trentin, thanks for your excellent photography and photoshop skills.
Jeannie Albrecht, thanks for your never ending computer advice and assistance. I'll understand those dang things one of these days…maybe!
To all my friends in White Sulphur Springs, Bozeman, Cornwall, and scattered around the world. A huge thank you for the love and support you have shown. Without that I never would have had the courage to make an idea become reality. Thank you!
And of course…Magpie, the best damn office cat around.
