It's mostly just me.
Hey- I'm Krystal Douglas. I’m a live music addict, wild mustang tamer, Nashville resident, and A-list seamstress. I fell in love with sewing when I was a kid. Having grown up on a farm, my great aunts made everything- from the clothes they wore while working in tobacco fields to the quilts they slept under. My grandmother was a country/gospel artist, so while the aunts taught me what seam allowances are, she's the one who reinforced my affinity for soothing harmonies, polished live performances, and warm vinyl.
The first time I made money sewing was in 2008 when I ran an Etsy store. I was in college at MTSU earning my Music Business degree. I couldn't believe that people liked my work (quilts) well enough to drop cash on it- after all, I was just a broke college kid covered in thread. After four years spent in music publicity and concert production logistics, I had coordinated local production logistics for every stadium and arena-level touring act to come through Nashville (The Rolling Stones, CMA Fest, Toby Keith, Little Big Town, Taylor Swift, & about 400 others.)
I left the office in 2015 but never left the live music/production world (it's in my veins, after all). The calls started coming a few weeks later, and only increased when I moved into my first commercial studio space on music row in August 2017. Everyone knew I sewed, and since I already know what textiles complement with what lights, how scrim works, and just what it takes to costume rig for wardrobe changes- costuming and soft goods production for entertainment was a natural fit. We just recently relocated the studio to Cannery Row in July.
By now I've created completely one of a kind custom stage pieces that come off with magnets, I've fixed about 800 zippers for quick-change, and I've project managed and sewn softgoods/backdrops for several tours. I've also sat in on enough tour rehearsals and handled fabric-related rigging to know how to make these tours travel and operate just a little smoother.
