Surprise, Surprise! Thank you AUBURN!

Sometimes, the surprises come when you least expect it, but need it most.  So it was the case for us last Friday when our friend, Kate, called and told us news that about made us fall out.

Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences and the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences, have seven industrial sewing machines they have used in their apparel production lab, but are replacing. Kate shared about G.E.A.R. with the department and they all agreed that the seven (count them...SEVEN) machines should go to G.E.A.R. on an extended loan, which basically means G.E.A.R. keeps them indefinitely without paying for them.  

For those of you who have followed us for awhile, you know what a huge, gigantic deal this is. These kind of machines are worth thousands of dollars and we knew in order for us to continue to fulfill our vision and hire the women we are currently working with at Friendship Mission would require more than a Singer sewing machine. 

Yesterday, we delivered the machines to the Firehouse via a U-Haul. We cannot say "THANK YOU" enough to the the College of Human Sciences and to the people there who believe in what we are doing! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU! What a blessing! It's always a surprise!

Introducing...New Products to G.E.A.R.

One thing is for certain, Kellie and the production team are always finding new ways to amp G.E.A.R. up a notch...or two. 

Our latest additions to the G.E.A.R. line are the new Patchwork Messenger Bag complete with each side decked out with our scrap fabric. You see, we never throw anything away! We believe there is always something you can do with the things you would otherwise toss  aside.

We also have a brand new product we are excited to launch: The Weekender! Like the new Messenger Bag, the trim on our Weekender is made of scrap fabric. It's perfect for a weekend away and just the right size to carry on your flight halfway around the world!

*As always, the pictures below are just one of the many options available for these products.
