It’s been a few weeks since my last post due entirely to the BOVINE-SWINE-ASIAN DEATH FLU I contracted. Never mind, I survived, and am back to whinging about patternmakers. Don’t say you didn’t miss me! As much as I enjoy cold-calling random manufacturers in the hope they will deign to produce my meagre line, I have instead found a lovely girl at Launch Initiative who is co-ordinating patternmakers, machinists and manufacturers for me. It may not be the cheapest way to produce a line but it’ll damn well be the most professional and informative, and at this stage, I need the knowledge.
