Today's installment of our Localism feature looks at some currently funding Kickstarter and Indie Go Go projects headquartered in Pittsburgh.
— Headed up by a noted local fashion blogger, Zaftig aims to make a line of dresses for women size 10 and up. Mandy Fierens runs the Curvy Blogger blog, and has already begun to create dresses for the line. She's almost to her goal on the Kickstarter, though of course extra cash never hurts. There are two weeks left on the campaign.
— Relatively new on the site is this project, wherein Raina Kellerman wants to write a book about women in Civil War arsenals. Pertinent to local-history enthusiasts.
— Jenesis Magazine, which we've profiled in the past, is looking to recompose itself and relaunch; the folks behind it are looking to Indie Go Go to help. If the locally flavored hip hop mag is your style, perhaps you'd like to contribute.
— And Cait Cuneo, until now known as lead singer of the band Black Coffee, is working on a solo EP and wants you to be a part of it. Click here to check out some info on "Violet," if you please!
