One Hour Left - threadandleather.com up and running!

Hey Kickstarters!! Just one hour left before the Wrap Wallet is funded. Thank you all so much for your incredible support. Check out the website I built over the last two days at threadandleather.com.
REMINDER: Kickstarter is not a store. It is an experience. I promise to do everything I can to get your Wrap Wallet to you as soon as possible, as long as you promise to be understanding about the fact that I now have to produce around 30x more wallets than my initial goal had accounted for.
Lucky for you (and me) I knew this level of funding was possible and I have an amazing network behind me to produce Wrap Wallets very, ahem, wrapidly.
I have already been working tirelessly to get manufacturing up and running. A little over a thousand wallets' worth of leather has already been dyed at the tannery and is either already at the laser cutter or is in the mail on its way.
Evan was cutting wallets on Thanksgiving Eve in California while I was sewing in New Jersey. Thread & needles are on their way from Europe. Things are aligning well for an extremely rapid Kickstarter fulfillment.
The only unknown at this point is sewing. Jemma obviously can't sew 1000 wallets herself. I have been working on this for two weeks now and have a number of prospective shops that do hand-sewing. Getting this aspect of production up and running is my #1 priority now, and I will do everything I can to get these shipped as soon as possible. Wallets will ship as soon as they are sewn in the order that they were pledged for.
So what should you expect? Expect me to notify you every step along the way about which colors are getting dyed, cut and sewn. Expect to learn a lot about American manufacturing. Expect to be entertained. And expect to receive the best wallet in the world in as timely a manner as is possible.
It's a Wrap!!
