Are you Thready?
By: Sara Brooks Adams
Sally Adcock and Ann Archer Arnell are Juniors at The University of Mississippi. Over quarantine the girls decided to get crafty and learn how to embroider. They originally began small with bandanas, but are now on to sweatshirts, pillowcases, and just about anything else you want to be embroidered. Last month Adcock and Arnell launched their new official business Are You Thready.

Sally is wearing their white bandana with red embroidered Rebels and Ann Archer is wearing their navy bandana with red embroidered HYDR. These shots were taken by Sara Brooks Adams for their upcoming website. “We Originally started off just making Ole Miss related bandanas, but as soon as my friends from back home in Auburn saw them they insisted we start making ones for all school,” said Ann Archer. Sally is constantly hard at work making bandanas, which is their most popular product. “When we first started this I figured we would only get around 50 orders or so just from friends trying to support us, but as of Monday October 26 we have sold 536 bandanas,” said Sally. Are you Thready’s biggest news yet is that their bandanas are now available in Dsquared Oxford, Starkville, Jackson, and soon Baton Rouge. “When we saw the DM from Dsquared asking to sell our bandanas we jumped and screamed like little girls. It was so exciting and encouraging,” said Sally. Lillie Walker is a student as well at The University of Mississippi and was spotted out and about on The Square repping Are You Thready. Lillie said, “If we have to wear a mask lets at least make them cute.” Sweet Bea wanted to be just like the girls. “We couldn’t leave out our furry friends so we made sure to advertise that our bandanas are pet friendly as well,” said Ann Archer.
