eNews for our Wholesale Customers
Hello & welcome!
So... by way of this newsletter, we are formally announcing to the wholesale world that our new pattern for Fall 2016, the Everyday Attache is officially and finally released!
The Everyday Attache is a modern-day take on the old-fashioned briefcase of the past. It includes a partitioned interior with a built-in wallet, 2 zippered compartments as well as a Card Caddy, & pen holders. The exterior features a fleece-lined pouch pocket large enough to accommodate ALL smart phones as well as many small tablets!
The Everyday Attache pattern is available thru our usual distribution channels (Checker, Brewer & United Notions) as is the new hardware designed to accompany this design. You've been asking us for 1/2" wide D-rings and we finally listened! (See below in our Product Spotlight section.) But as usual, we are always happy to sell direct to our wholesale customers if that is your preference!

By way of this newsletter we're also officially releasing our newest addition to our bag hardware line, 1/2" wide D-rings. Yeah, we had trouble finding them too, so we finally just had them made for ourselves. Just like the rest of our line, they're available in a brass or a nickel finish and you can find out more about them and our other metal findings here-
And as usual, our hardware is available through Checker, Brewer, United Notions or if you prefer, we are always happy to work directly with our wholesale customers!
And don't forget-- It's a GREAT day to be sewing!  Laughing
