Hello there, we hope you have had a lovely weekend. We have finally chosen the first wave of artists to get their work printed onto our lovely clothes. Emails have been sent out and art has been selected – if you would like for your work to be considered for the next wave of printing, please contact us at info@individualthreads.co.uk or upload your work onto the Facebook group.

In other news, our shop is now up and running for those of you not located in the Southsea Area – currently our promo range is available for purchase, soon to be followed by our featured artists – have a look here.

Lots of arty love, The Individual Threads Team. x

In the Flickr feed on the right hand side of our blog are the 5 styles for the Individual Threads promo launch. Jordan, Andy, Matt, Spencer and myself (Josie)  have all designed a sweater each to heighten awareness of the site and the quality/finish of the clothes that we one day soon hope to make with YOUR art on it.

promo launch date announced and birthday fun!

Just a short update today from Individual Threads – we have spent a picturesque Friday in the studio,  chilling, laughing and listening to the likes of Run DMC, Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash. Andy, Spencer and myself, located in the studio, have been putting the finishing touches to our promo range, due for launch next Monday. Jordan has been in the office, printing to his hearts content. Finished garments include a forest green sweatshirt, a red dress and a black hoodie. Pictures of them to come soon. We are looking at a couple of new and fair trade stockists for clothing items which is going well, and we have been brushing up on our sewing skills.

Last night at Waster was a great success, thank you to all that came and thanks for the positive feedback! A promotional movie was played as a backdrop for the live bands (Venice Ahoy and Astronomy Club)   designed by Howie – and it was actually immense. The Trash Arts film played and our clothes looked beautiful. Nice one!

Side note: It’s my birthday today so the Indi Threads team and lots of others are going to Little Johnny Russells where Andy and Andy and Lewis and JACK BEATS are going to give us a lovely birthday treat. Come along for the fun!

We’ll leave you as we listen to Ratatat and discuss the logistics of Michael Jackson’s farewell tour.

Lots of birthday love from the Individual Threads Team. X
