We’re Goin’ on Tour

Published January 9, 2013 by craftyweetzie

Hello Friends!

What are you doing in February? Over here at Mend My Dress Press, February feels like it’s just around the corner. You see, February is the official 1 year anniversary of Mend My Dress Press and to celebrate, we’re hittin’ the road with some of our represented authors in a west coast mini-tour!

Neelybat Chestnut (Mend My Dress: Collected Zines), Osa Atoe (Shotgun Seamstress Zine Collection), Maranda Elizabeth (Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues) and I will be heading down the northwest coast, making stops along the way do zine readings and even play some music. We’ll be joined by Little Debbi from Los Angles, who will be playing music with us at some of our stops. We’re still hammering out a lot of details, but we’ll keep you updated as this plan comes together!

In the meantime, here’s where we’ll be heading, and a list of shows we’ve booked so far. Hope to see you as we trek down the coast, and if you want to help us fund the tour, please grab some rad zines or books from our online shop, since pretty much any money we bring in till march will end up help funding this trip. We’ll also be posting the promotional fliers on the site and would love your help spreading the word. Thanks!
