About

Well hello there!

I'm Alice Raven Knight and I love working with my hands. I love getting busy. I crave pressure. Most importantly, I love saving money. Don't we all? I will splurge for myself once in a while, but for some reason I find shopping hard. When I see something and I'm halfway to the cashier, I will eventually put it back because I can make it myself. Which is why I travel with my fat 'lil notebook. (Seriously, it says that on the back page) I'll write down all the ideas, adding more on my to do lists. Next thing I know, I have 50 sewing projects.

I have no definite style. I simply work with the fabric. For me, each fabric has its own personality. I don't want to mold it to something it's not. If it speaks different, it will be edgy. If it calls for attention, it will be a show stopper. If it stands by itself, it will…

Well hello there!

I'm Alice Raven Knight and I love working with my hands. I love getting busy. I crave pressure. Most importantly, I love saving money. Don't we all? I will splurge for myself once in a while, but for some reason I find shopping hard. When I see something and I'm halfway to the cashier, I will eventually put it back because I can make it myself. Which is why I travel with my fat 'lil notebook. (Seriously, it says that on the back page) I'll write down all the ideas, adding more on my to do lists. Next thing I know, I have 50 sewing projects.

I have no definite style. I simply work with the fabric. For me, each fabric has its own personality. I don't want to mold it to something it's not. If it speaks different, it will be edgy. If it calls for attention, it will be a show stopper. If it stands by itself, it will be simple. If it's just gorgeous, it's not for sale.
(I'm kidding, my closet's shouting bloody mary for space)

In case you haven't noticed, I use a lot of Polyester on my store. Mainly because I love how it's so deceiving; it mimics Linen, Velvet, Silk, Cotton and even Denim. It's just so versatile and I love it's stretch quality. Also, I usually sew two of each design. One will be for sale while the other is for me, for a friend or family. That's why there is only one available piece for my items, making your purchase, just yours.
(Unless you meet one of my friends and you guys are wearing the same thing)

I use fabric, aside from crafts store, from thrift stores, garage sales and costume shops. Most of the time, I don't shop at craft stores. I believe we already have a lot of fabric around us so might as well use those. Your welcome Mother Earth! No, this does not mean they're of lesser quality. This just proves they can stand the test of time. Rest assured I have high standards, if I'm not going to wear it, no one else will.

Most of the time, I work on five different projects at the same time. Once I'm stucked at something I can continue with my other piece. I don't like pauses; I want fluidity when I'm in my work mode. Sometimes I sew 8 hours straight. Then my stomach gets mad at me for ignoring him. (Yes it's a guy, how else can I ignore it?)

Thank you for reading all this. I take it you want to know the person behind xARK, or you're simply bored. But either way, I thank thee my precious minions.
