Well, this semester started with many changes, but as we examine the changes and trials God brings our way we are starting to see the silver lining and the new opportunities this is opening up for us. In regards to the show we started everything a week behind due to some unplanned water shortages and school closure so we were in a scramble to catch up. But in our desperation and weakness God has opened some new doors to work with new people and renew some old acquaintances.
Thankfully a former student has returned to fill in as our Shop Supervisor and TD keeping the progress moving forward in the shop and working to read our Designer’s (my) mind as best he can. 🙂
Our costumes are being taken care of …. (at least the beautiful gowns) for our upcoming production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” by a company in Michigan called “The Sewing Room”. Kellie & Kathy have been great and the bonus for us as they are just as excited about doing these as we are about having them made.
Anyway I wanted to share with you how we are using technology to our advantage to try and collaborate from a distance regarding these costumes.
We have started with a blog site that has renderings and and measurement sheets and a few pattern suggestions with Designer notes and from that have been emailing and blogging back and forth as we go along.
Hey and if there is anyone talented and ambitious enough reading this blog to tackle any one or more of the men’s costumes rendered on our site and can meet the deadline of in our hands here at Belhaven by Feb. 12 …. Please email me ASAP because we would be a happy to negotiate a deal with you. — or leave a comment on our blog.
