Hello from the road!
Our craft yarn industry is in a state of evolution with over half the yarn shops having gone out of business. The good news is that the remaining shops are thriving! As I travel Interstate 80 on my way to San Jose, CA for TNNA, I see enthusiasm I haven't seen in a long time. This is encouraging!
Also, an update on our latest endeavor: Our new textile facility at our ranch is being built cement block by cement block and should be finished by late spring. For every $10 spent on yarn, I've calculated that we can put 3 cement blocks in place. These blocks will be forming the walls of our mill! The foundation should be finished next week.
These are exciting times! We have full confidence in the future of our beloved industry. We intend to have Cestari Sheep & Wool Company leading the revival of it.
Don't forget! My daughter, Jennifer and I will be exhibiting our Cestari yarns at TNNA in San Jose, California. You can find us at booths 708 & 710. We will be at Sample It! January 20 and at our booths January 21-23, 2017. Please stop by and say hello! Every person who comes by to visit our booths will receive a ball of cotton harvested by hand by a couple of cotton farmers in Virginia!
Also, we sent news out that some of our prices are increasing as of Friday. We will honor our current pricing on orders placed before January 20, 2017. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Thank you, as always, for being in partnership with Cestari. We appreciate your business!
Francis Chester-Cestari, the Shepherd
