Ascent Modifications

We have absolutely loved seeing so many Ascents sewn up by you! We enjoy, too, seeing 'hacks' and customizations that make your Ascent work in ways unique to you! Customizations are incredibly inspiring to us, so we put together a smaller Tester Round-Up that includes a few Ascent mods from our team! Please be sure to share your Ascent, and other TSM pattern modifications in our Facebook group!
