When I started Whitney Sews in May 2009 it was a final video project for college. It was only meant to be the 1 episode and nothing more. I never would have dreamed that over 2 years later I would still be on youTube creating tutorials on a weekly basis. I had been watching Threadbanger since December of 2007 and it was inspiration from Corinne, Rob, and Meg that helped me come up with the idea of Whitney Sews.
So having said all that you can only imagine my excitement when I was asked to be a part of the Threadbanger relaunch! At first I wasn't sure if it was legit, so I contacted Corinne and she confirmed it was real...so I squealed. After my phone conversation with a gal at Next New Networks who is working with TB- I squealed. The day the announcement video went up- I squealed! There has been a lot of excited squealing happening around here :)
Anyway, the way things work is there are 5 core channels and we take turns posting a Monday Haul video on the TB channel. Then sometime that week we post a corresponding video on our personal channels using the items we showed in the haul for a tutorial. I think it's going to be a great way to showcase more DIYers and give viewers the opportunity to subscribe to the channels they like. There will also be some viewer submitted videos and editor picks from Corinne.
I'm so thankful that I get to be a part of a channel that has meant so much to me over the past several years! It's really helped to encourage and inspired me to come up with better tutorials. Also thank you to everyone who has supported Whitney Sews! Without you all I would never have made it this far!
I think that's all the news for now...off to work on some new videos...
