Almost as fun as the bra workshops themselves – keyword is almost – is the prepping that goes into it.

I’ve been lucky in that at almost every workshop, there is a “character” who makes the whole class. You know the saying, “a bad egg can spoil the batch”? In this case, the opposite is true. At yesterday’s workshop, this “character” was Donnelle. I’ve know him for only a short while. We met two weeks ago when he started
