Hurricane Sandy

We are back in the studio today and I am so thrilled to say that damage is minimal. 

I know that there are lots of questions about pattern orders and people want new outfits for holiday parties. I will spend the day sorting through, checking tracking with the post office, etc and should have a full accounting of where things are with each order in the morning.

Thanks for the well wishes and if you have a pending order, I will be in contact today or tomorrow. If you are thinking of placing an order, there is no reason for delays since we have limited damage and the local post office is open for business.

Thanks again,

Alex
