Fancy Integrated Measurement Form

I have gotten so frustrated with trying to keep track of people's measurements! i usually scrawl 'em on a napkin and then add it to the heaps. no more, i say! I have made this nifty form. Any input on what should be on it is welcome. Maybe you have been sent here to fill it out. Yay! thanks for doing it. You can click through to the fully rendered form here or scroll down for the embedded version (with slightly odd formatting, because nothing is ever perfect).

MR on newsstands and in your heart

It seems like things are speeding up and spring is rolling forward with its own plans for renewal and revitalization! We're excited to tell you about quite a few things we've been cooking up for the occasion:::

-Medium Reality feature in Altered Couture magazine
-save the date - Debra Walker March 11th
-added email lists for super loyalists
-Trunk n Swap March 5th
-Debra Walker statement


ALTERED COUTURE is a nationally distributed magazine about reconstructed clothes! We landed a five page color spread with photos of tons of work as well as instructions and guidelines for patching your own clothes. We love sharing our trade secrets! Come to the studio and we will show you in person. You can pick this magazine up at tons of major newsstands... I have heard of Borders sightings. Better yet, contact your local newsstand/bookseller and ask them if they carry it or can get it. If you want, you can also buy it online at Atomic Books.


DEBRA WALKER, coming out in favor of FUN.
at Medium Reality & Boylesque studios
916 Natoma St (near 10th betw Mission & Howard) 6-9pm March 11th
Debra is a painter and longtime SF resident who has been up to her elbows in warehouse zoning issues and is sharp as a tack. She is running for supervisor of District 6, which includes South of Market and parts of the Mission. If you don't know much about the Board of Supervisors, well, now is your chance to find out in a fun and laid-back way. (The movie Milk also has a pretty great little intro to this uniquely powerful aspect of San Francisco politics and what makes it special.) Debra is running for the seat that Chris Daly is vacating due to term limits, and I think this is a great chance to get an ear on this board that is sympathetic to the arts and small businesses alike. If this all sounds very boring to you, then remind yourself and district 6 is the epicenter of the War on Fun and your interest in this race could help determine whether your favorite DJ's laptop gets confiscated (again) and how freely legal and underground venues alike may entertain you in the future. Welcome to our neighborhood! Won't you help us keep it open? We promise music, drinks, entertainment... and all the freak-friendly local politics you can handle.

This is a one-time-only announcement about a very special email list, freshly configured and ready for your love! The Inner Circle is a place where we will announce special deals for our most loyal lovers. Things like: exclusive passwords for secret discounts on goods at events, periodic semi-private warehouse sell-off events where we make back stock available in our studio for super bargain purchase, and notices about new production. This last one is very exciting because we will tell you when we do a major production run, what the goods are like, and where we are stocking them to. This will make it easier to get them into your hot little hands! The list will be pretty low traffic, just 1-2x/month. Both lists combined won't exceed 3-4 emails a month. Feel free to invite anyone you think may be interested! to join, send an email to (and yes, it's freshly configured so even though i have tested it please let me know if you have any problems!)

A word from Debra...
As a resident and artist living in District 6 for over 25 years, D6 Supervisor and Democratic County Central Committee candidate Debra Walker loves San Francisco's active artist and nightlife community. Debra has been working with residents and nightlife to resolve what the SF Bay Guardian calls the "Death of Fun." The Death of Fun has shaken down some of the City's most beloved clubs and music venues, including DNA Lounge, Slim's, and Bottom of the Hill. Debra wants to work with neighbors, law enforcement, club owners, and promoters to prioritize safety while protecting San Francisco's diverse nightlife scene. Come meet Debra and learn how she is working to keep San Francisco fun, vibrant and livable for all!
