Journal Entry: Mon Aug 13, 2018, 4:29 AM
Well, another BronyCon is in the books. As it turns out this was the penultimate chapter with the announcement that next year will be the Con's finale. With that in mind I am making a two-fold announcement. First, when BronyCon closes up shop so will I. That con has been the only event I vend and it is time for me to try something else. This does not mean I am no longer sewing after August of 2019, but I am slowing down to only commissions and whatever I feel like making. I finally have the perfect excuse to cease production.
I have been blessed to make ponies for people to enjoy for over six years and I have a gallery of smiling faces holding their ponies to prove it. That wall of photos is my inspiration to continue sewing ponies and I wouldn't trade that away for anything. I have met a lot of cool people in the process and watched a few fans grow up and mature as the years pass. This sewing thing was just a way to help sustain a living while I worked toward earning my PhD. Now that I have a full time job corrupting the youth in college classrooms I no longer need this to maintain my rock n' roll lifestyle.
Sewing has always been a fun side hustle over finding a real part-time job and I was so fortunate to find people who really enjoyed my work and crazy enough to pay me for it. Every time I sell a pony I am eternally grateful to the person who bought them because I still can't believe people love my plushies. I will always be thankful because everyone who ever bought a pony supported me as I worked toward my real goal of earning a terminal degree without starving to death. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Secondly, since this will be the last year of BronyCon I am going to go all out and make more ponies than ever before. I have a list of ponies I will have available for 2019. If there is any pony I should make leave a comment below and if I see enough requests I will probably make at least one for this last roundup.
