sarahnelsen Hey designers, want to know a down and dirty substitute for fabric weights? Plain ol washers from the hardware store. They work great especially when rotary cutting. Thanks @weezy2950 for this tip! 2d

  •   rogenenelsen Dear daughter Sarah, I am so proud to be your mother. You have more creativity and drive than most young people I know. You are kind, open minded, and love to learn. I am not sure you fully understand what I have learned from you! I look forward to sharing many more adventures with you. 3w

sarahnelsen What a beautiful runway presentation by the talented crew at @hintagram - large scale graphic backdrops pair perfectly with each collection while a live video feed allows the audience to see all the details. Thanks @mariabelleee for wearing this look so well. It's great to work with you again! #ffackc 1mon

sarahnelsen In appreciation of all the great work Truman Medical Centers is doing for women’s health in our community I’m doing a #GIVEAWAY in partnership with @jana_meister and @fashion4causekc.

Visit janastyleblog.com to enter to win my #dip-dyed raw #silk #pillow in a blue and bronze gradation. The back is brown vegan leather and there’s a side brass zipper for easy insert removal. This is all hand-dyed and sewn at my studio in Kansas City. #ffackc

sarahnelsen Tuesday textile inspiration: Here’s a peek at materials you’ll see in my @fashion4causekc collection. The show theme is Decology which combines ‘decalogy’ and ‘ecology.’ This inspiration can represent a set of ten works of art that are connected blending with ecology, the branch of biology that deals with the relation of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings.

My palette sources colors that come from the earth + texture in textiles and in seam details. #ffackc
