As of 5 p.m. last night Illinois is a shelter in place state and all residents are to stay in their homes and non-essential businesses are to close for two weeks starting tomorrow.

We got a heads up that this was coming late last Thursday night and immediately put into motion efforts that will allow us to keep shipping to you through this time. We turned on the cameras as we prepped to take you along with our journey.

Working in conjunction with our fabulous fabric manufacturers and distributors, we were able to place orders for the next month ...
