eNews for our Wholesale Customers
Hello & welcome!
It's September and if you're thinking that means we have a new pattern to roll-out, then you're RIGHT!
Earlier this month we released the Triple Play. Many of you have been following the development of this design on our Blog, but  here's an interior pic showing its 2 roomy pouch areas AND zipper Core pocket.
The sample at left is shown with a ruched cord trim AND a pieced kaleidoscope front panel, but this bag can also be made with a pleated ruffled edge and a flat front panel (click here).
You can find our products listed with Checker, Brewer and United Notions but remember, we are always happy to sell product directly to our customers if that is preferable to you!
