Please check out and bid on items offered at the Austin Dog Rescue online auction that go to support this wonderful rescue organization. Many great items are available including doggie outfits created during the Stitch Lab DIY Fashion Semester Intensive, designed and patterned by Ronkita, with fabric donated by Stitch Lab.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a very cool mention Ronkita received in the Austin Chronicle.
Amy Gentry with the Chronicle was there to take photos and get all the juicy details of the event.
I love how she reiterates how important is to know where your items come from and the significance of shopping locally. In addition, she references the importance of celebrating our own individuality, which is why I started sewing.
Stitch Lab of Austin recently added a new class called the DIY Fashion Semester Intensive. This class is designed to teach students of all levels the details of essential garment construction and flat pattern making in addition to a lot more.

Ronkita is proud to have participated in and help sponsor the first Dr. Seuss Birthday Party and Canine Carnival that took place at the Liberty Hill Public Library.

When looking for a new pet companion, please check out and support the rescue organizations in your area.

Chris of Haunted ATX was in a jam. His last hearse, that he uses for tours of Austin, was out of service and his new one sat unfinished. The interior had been framed out to accommodate passengers, but he wasn’t able to find someone to add cushions as quickly as he needed. Every day that passed meant Haunted ATX had to turn customers away. Continue reading “Custom Hearse Upholstery”
