New Vintage Lady help

smolderingwickdesigns:

Some of you sewists may know Shelley who blogs over at New Vintage Lady about plus size vintage sewing. She also writes/ illustrates the popular comic Vintageville.

The super-hard-working Shelley and her wonder-dog Brian (such a cutie!) have been struggling to make ends meet for a while, and while it sounds like she finally has some more permanent prospects for the future, things are pretty tight right now.

I know she’s not the sort to just ask for $ but she does have an etsy shop where she sells her own original vintage-inspired patterns as well as some vintage clothing and other fun things.

She says she needs to come up with $300 by the end of the week*, so if any of you could either purchase a little something from there or signal boost this post, that would be great.

(NVL doesn’t even know me, much less that I am posting this, but i’ve been following her a good long while & just want the best for her).
