Homespun

Ever since Thanksgiving we have been encouraged to start our holiday shopping. I have to confess. I am one of those last minute kinda people. In my defense, we just had Showtime and as you know design never stops!

Well, with the holiday shopping now going into full swing, I felt compelled to write this blog. 

I do have a cool holiday tradition. I love to make things and gifts. We always make an ornament. And, I often make my gifts. I thought you guys may be inspired to make your gifts this year! You can buy some cool Revolution Performance Fabrics® on our new online store and make gifts. Here are some cool ideas:  bag, pillow, throw, dog bed, table runner, skirt… let your imagination run wild!!! Have fun… a home made gift is always extra special!!

Day 2 of Showtime

Day 2 of Showtime

Happy Halloween!

With Halloween filling the air today, the crisp autumn breezes will soon carry with them the voices of children uttering ‘Trick, or treat?’  So, which will it be?  Why not treat yourself to a TRUE performance fabric—REVOLUTION PERFORMANCE FABRICS®. Don’t be tricked by other so-called performance brands which rely on chemical after-treatments.  Revolution Performance Fabrics® use NO chemical treatments and therefore are free of potentially harmful PFCs.  Best of all, the performance is built into Revolution fabrics and will never go away!  So, as the evening shadows grow longer and the ghouls and goblins begin to stir, will you be tricked or treated?

Mother-In-Law

Did you know that last Monday was National Mother-In-Law Day?

I hope that everyone remembered to celebrate😊! Now just to clarify, I really do love my mother-in-law.  She's great!!  How lucky am I that she stays out of our business, well, most of the time.  I know what you are thinking, I am just trying to stay on her good side.  Don't worry, I am 99.9% sure that her Jitterbug phone doesn't even have internet service, so she will never even read this!  Remember how I told you that she stays out of our business??  I guess that doesn't include her giving me her opinion on, well, just about everything! But isn't that what mother-in-laws are supposed to do?  

I was so excited, I told my mother-in-law that we were getting a new sofa.  "What color is it?" she asked.  "It's white!" I said. Dead silence.....then she said "Honey, are you sure that you want to do that?  I don't think that is a good idea.  You know white is going to be really hard to keep clean!"  I responded, excited that for once, I could correct her, of course, nicely.  "No, it's not just any white fabric! It's a Revolution fabric!!"  No worries for me!  If it gets dirty, it easily cleans with a little soap and water, add some bleach for the tougher stains. I am so excited I can finally get the white sofa that I have always wanted!!!

Go Team GO!

We are not talking about the Carolina Panthers this time....

Creating Revolution Performance Fabrics® is truly a team effort.  Never in my career have I worked with a better group of colleagues than here at STI.  Each one of these people exhibit true selflessness, working for the greater good of our company and our brand.  We certainly take pride in our work which I truly believe shows in the final products we produce.  We are co-workers, we are friends, and we all continue to work diligently to bring you the best.

Over exposure

A few weeks ago my father celebrated being 10 years cancer free from non-hodgkin lymphoma!  This particular cancer was determined by his doctor to be from exposure to environmental factors. 

I am so excited that our Revolution Performance Fabrics® are not chemically treated with stain repellants.  Stain resistance is an inherent quality of the yarn, therefore your family is not exposed to any added chemicals (like other performance brands).

Red, White and Brody

It's an election year. Time to think about what qualities I like in a candidate. The more I think about it I realize I'd like a candidate that has the same strengths as Revolution. Revolution Performance Fabrics® are durable, strong and survive anything you throw at them. 

Rock the vote y'all! Until next time...
