Leggings Production Update

Dear Supporters,

We just spoke to our production partners in New York.   

We expect to receive your leggings 2 weeks from today! We will then begin to ship them to you as quickly as possible. 

Unfortunately, a small number of our pant style will be shipping to us 10 days later and you will receive them a few days later.

Thank you for your patience. We can’t wait for you to receive your leggings!

Fondly,

The Parallel Connection Team

Leggings Production Update
8 months ago – Tue, Feb 05, 2019 at 06:50:53 PM

Hi Everyone,
We are writing to update you on what we have been up to and where we are with the production of your leggings.
We were delayed in the printing process because we wanted to be 100 percent sure that the colors in the new print run are as clear and vibrant as our samples. We have now approved the print strike-off for all four print patterns and they are awesome!
The printed fabric will shortly be on its way to New York where it will be cut and sewed into your leggings!
Our hope is to be shipping to you in the early part of March!
We were thrilled to be interviewed by "Understood.org" in December.  In case you missed it here`s the link.

We will keep you posted.

Thank You for Completing your Questionnaire

To Our Supporters,

Happy New Year!

2018 was an exciting year for The Parallel Connection and we want to thank each and every one of you for your enthusiasm and support. We can’t wait to see where 2019 takes us!

Thank you for completing the questionnaires that were sent through Backer Kit and providing the information we needed to begin production. The fabric for your leggings has been purchased and is at our printing facility in Virginia. It will soon be shipped up to our production partners in Manhattan where the cut and sew process will take place.

We are so excited to receive the finished leggings, package and send them off to you!

Wishing each of you and your families health and happiness in 2019.

Fondly,

Allison, Carol and the Parallel Connection Team

Have you filled out the BackerKit survey yet?
10 months ago – Sat, Dec 15, 2018 at 02:52:19 PM

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully you received the email with the link to Your Survey. For those of you who have completed them, we thank you!

If you have not yet filled out the survey, please do so ASAP. It is important that we receive all your order information by next Thursday, December 20, so that we can stay on our production schedule.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under “Lost your survey?” on our BackerKit project page at

https://the-first-leggings-inspired-to-dress-up-or-dress-d.backerkit.com/

For those of you who have asked about adding items to your Kickstarter Pledge, after you pick your pledge item, you will be directed to the add-on page. There you are able to choose additional items.

After you have responded to your survey, you can still go back and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys on December 20th, and get our final counts.

In addition to working on getting the Backer Kit surveys sent out and finalizing your orders, we have designed and ordered tissue paper and brand labels from a very cool company that only uses eco friendly papers. Below is a sneak preview of the wrapping that your leggings will be arriving in…

We are super excited as the momentum is growing and all the pieces are starting to come together!

We hope that you are all enjoying this holiday season and special times with family and friends.

And, as always, if you have any questions, please email us at Us@theparallelconnection.com

Thank you, 

 The Parallel Connection Team
