One Spark photos by Jeff Davis
In case I forgot to tell you all, our One Spark project came in 39th place. Not too shabby for 650+ projects! We had the best time with Shelby and our sewing machines, explaining to people our passion about opening a sewing lounge and creative space in Jacksonville.
While we would have loved our project to be funded completely, we're happy with the top 6% of the huge festival. We will recieve about $1,100 to fund our project, which should help us start the process of finding a retail space and looking at leases with realtors.
We have a long road ahead of us, but it will happen. Our sewing lounge and retail space will be open before the end of 2014. And we can't wait to share the process with you all along the way.
Special thanks to my friend Jeff Davis of the Times-Union for snapping these photos.
