Ok. it's been a few weeks since my NY trip and we've spent most of our time tieing up all the loose ends to complete production, send swatches and market the collection; happily, as of 10/18 all of our production yardage is in stock.
I drove down to our mill myself to pick up this last run of "Shellgame". Personally, I really enjoy meeting face to face with my printer to iron out details. It makes a marked difference in building a relationship with a supplier when you can speak in person. One day we will be printing overseas, but right now I am relishing the ease of travel and communication.
I can't stress enough how glad I am to have all 3 of our patterns in all 9 colorways here with me and ready to ship. I can now of course re-focus my energies on new designs/colors already in development!
On another important note: I know that the Organic Exchange is having their 5th annual conference on October 29th in Monterey County, CA. I am very sorry to say that we will not be able to attend, so if you are a member of the Textile Industry and can send comments (or a blog address) about what you took away from this trip, I would be most appreciative. Harmony, I will check your Blog of course...
thanks for tuning in...
