    THANK YOU so much for posting this…I teach English and Rhetoric to high school students in Missouri, and I was just trying to compile some resources myself to share with my summer school class. So wonderful to have this list from real EXPERTS…extremely grateful!!!

    P.S. I’m still working on trying to complete my first few A.C. pieces of clothing, but I have bought your books and patterns for years…and slowly gathered the other resources I needed (making stencils, etc. takes a lot of time). I admire the work you do for its beauty…detail…and commitment to ethical business practices. Plus, just acknowledging the importance of creating handmade goods. Love it all.

    Thank you so much for this resource list! I am a white nurse practitioner working in a school-based health clinic in a school with many students of color, and this has come at such a perfect time. Our clinic is currently closed because of COVID-19, which has heavily impacted our underserved community. Your list will certainly make my time off more productive and enriching, as do your mindful sewing techniques. An unexpected find! Thank you.
