Seattle Snow!


Lisa and Fong (Sewing Supervisors) at our Seattle factory/headquarters checking out the snow as it began to fall on Friday

We closed early at 1:00pm on Friday and good thing: as predicted, the snow started falling just around then and by Saturday morning many of us had as much as 9″ of snow at our homes around the greater Seattle area.

More snow is predicted for Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday and even later in the week; some are estimating we could see as much as 16″ of snow before the week ends. As of today, we don’t foresee any delays in getting to the factory and getting orders processed and shipped, emails answered, and all of that good stuff we usually do Monday through Friday, but we’ll let you know if anything changes. Speaking of which: our production crew had two snow days last week and, if weather predictions are accurate, we expect they may have more snow days this week. That means that production is a little behind schedule. If any of the bags currently in production will be significantly delayed, we’ll let you know.

The snow and ice can be treacherous and it definitely interferes with getting our work done, but we’ve also been managing to have a lot of fun with it. Here’s a few of the photos we’ve taken so far, out and about in the last two days!


Grocery run with Zip-Top Shop Bags!


Friday evening walk in the snow.


The neighborhood coffee place was open!!!


These two photos were shared by NWHikergal in the Forums.


This snowperson deserves a hug.


You know, just a typical Saturday in Seattle practicing with the sled dog team down the neighborhood street…
