The End of American Apparel?

You might have heard that American Apparel in its previous form is no more.  The company was recently acquired by Gildan.  Their retail stores have been closing and it is still unclear how much of the brand will remain and how Gildan will manage it going forward.   You might not really care, or maybe you're asking what does this mean to me or Bending Line Designs? While I was never a big customer of their retail stores, BLD was in the process of transitioning to more American Apparel blank tees for our designs.  We were in the middle of trying out...

How Yoga Transformed My Riding

Submitted by Guest Blogger - Cecelia Conway Let me begin this post by saying that I am an anxious individual. Usually I’m adept at disguising my inner foibles, but add a 1,500 pound animal into the mix and they become… less well disguised. Much of my riding education has centered around not being a stiff, paranoid, ball of tension in the saddle. When I started riding I wasn’t an athletic individual.

Did you just say Muck U?

The Muck U Tee - I started riding a little later than average, at age 30 – just four short years ago. When I first started, my husband would come out every Sunday and watch me ride one of the lesson horses I was leasing. My intention here was 3-fold. Joe could take pics and videos. Who doesn’t want pics of themselves on their horse? Granted my position in these makes me now want to vomit, but some of the sweetest moments were captured with these horses. He would be around to pick me back up, in case I made...
