This count doesn’t even include the 11 boxes I have still unopened. I got these as I was leaving Atlanta to move to Oberlin. On the way out of town, I stopped by for one more batch, but with so many fabrics already in stock, I didn’t really need more to count and store, so they’re in a corner in the basement. Sorting and counting the samples inside will be a project for another day.
My working goal in life, as I realized in an “aha” moment during my SEED Ventures experience (more about that in a future post), is to turn these wonderful samples into useful and beautiful products that people will enjoy having. I think of them as adorable puppies – tens of thousands of them! – who need a good home.
