Ice Cold Facts

Ice Cold Facts

Some of you have asked how we have fared through the recent ice storm in Central Massachusetts so I thought I’d let you know.  Amazingly, the warehouse building that houses Sawyer Brook Fabrics never lost power.  We were fortunate to be in a part of town that was unaffected.  Many of our staff however have been without power for up to five days.  We are now all back in the modern world, some with insurance claims to make on car and house damage and loss, but overall we have fared well.  Many in Central Mass and Southern NH are still without power so we hold them in our thoughts and hope that the next storm does not make matters worse.  Here’s a scene in a nearby town.

    Wow! That looks cold. But I am sure it gives you lots of time indoors to pursue what you are most passionate about.
    We are currently in New Zealand, and it’s summer here. You see my husband and I are currently backpacking around the world for the next year or two. Feel free to follow us, http://www.nomadbackpackers.com
    We can only carry so many clothing items in our small backpacks. So, each item counts a lot! We left the states with one pair of pants each. Upon arriving in New Zealand, we realized we each would benefit from an additional pair of pants. However, after about a month of owning my new pants, the fabric has seemed to get pilly.

    My pants have 6% elastane and I am not very familiar with this element in fabric. If you know anything about it, or wish to educate us “uneducated fabric individuals”. Feel free to comment on our blog and share your ideas or insight.
    Thanks again!
