The First Time I Ever Saw a Belly Dancer

It’s no secret that I love clothes and everything about designing them. The fabrics, technique, and the awesome people I’ve worked with along the way…it’s all very exciting. Despite the hard work and inevitable bumps that are a part of being self-employed, it’s the passion for a great garment and a happy wearer that keeps this party going. Whoo hoo!

So, what started this whole love affair with clothing and design? I hope you will enjoy this multi-part blog about how it all began.

Reigning Down on Oregon

It’s time to start thinking about Reigning Down on Oregon, because it’ll be here before we know it! So, what’s RDOO?

A blurb from their website sums up the event nicely:

Do you like dancing?  Do you like music?  Do you like to eat, drink and be merry?  Do you love to laugh? Do you enjoy spending time with your friends and family doing what you love?  Well then, look no further! The sixth year of Reigning Down on Oregon is here! 

We’ve got a jam-packed retreat in store for you and we are so excited to head into the woods for our sixth year of art, friendship and fun in our wooded sanctuary of West Salem. 

Sakkara Clothing & Costume will be there to kick off our Pacific Northwest vending tour! Since this is one of our first events of the season, you can expect a great selection, beautiful new products, and focused, personal service.

Do take a moment and check out the RDOO website. They may have a few spaces still open (and it’s super affordable). Come join us in the woods!
