I've not yet received the January issue, but I'd like to lend my voice to the praises being sung about Lynetta Welch.
I had a terrific experience (my first) vis-a-vis Lynetta's products and services in March of this year. I needed to have a topit installed into a kilt jacket, and if you aren't familiar with Highland dress, a kilt jacket is much shorter and worn significantly tighter than a traditional suit jacket or sport coat. It was a tricky task, to say the least, which is why after thoroughly researching my options I turned to Lynetta.
I met with Lynetta in Las Vegas for a consultation and fitting, and left my jacket with her. The topit had to be custom made to fit the jacket and, in addition, it had to be positioned somewhat differently as well. As it turned out, Lynetta made and installed a pair of topits, one on each side, and they were both fitted into the jacket beautifully.
As a point of information, Lynetta's topit is similar in design to the Ammar topit, including the pocket retrieval feature, but hers has an additional feature that insures the flap will stay in place once you've tucked it into your pants (or, in my case, my kilt). Even though this particular jacket necessitates having the topits located higher up on my body, because of the way Lynetta positioned them I didn't have to significantly alter my technique. More impressive is the fact that even though the jacket is very close-fitting, I still have a fairly wide "sweet spot" for the dirty work. The topits work like a charm.
To add icing on the cake, Lynetta is exceptionally knowledgeable about magic and theatre crafts, and exceedingly personable to boot. I'm glad that Genii has featured her in an article--IMO the attention is well deserved.
