Goggles and Straps, meet Music and Lyrics

The story of GoggleMates

26. That’s the number of swim goggles that I bought in just one summer for my kids. My three kids. They’d complain that the goggle straps pulled their hair. And as every pair slowly disappeared, I’d pull mine out. So, I bought yards of neoprene, set up the sewing machine on my dining room table and quickly discovered that sewing is hard. Still, after many failed trials and a crash-course in sewing machine maintenance (not bad for a former teacher / semi-pro snowboarder / occasional movie extra), Gogglemate was born. And my hair looks awesome.
