We’ve written before about our supply chain and how the availability of fabric and notions directs what we do at The School of Making and Alabama Chanin. As a lean-method manufacturing company with zero-waste goals, we always look for ways to streamline and improve our processes. Previously, we carried 24 colors of fold-over elastic to coordinate with our fabric colors. However, when we pared down our 50 colors of medium-weight jersey to 25, some of those elastic colors became outdated.
We are now offering a streamlined selection of fold-over elastic in shades that coordinate with our eleven colors of Button Craft Thread. When ordering a DIY kit, the coordinating thread color will determine which elastic color you receive, whether you place a DIY Collection or Custom DIY Kit order. See the new colors and purchase fold-over elastic here.
Thanks for continually keeping us aware of the supply chain.
possibly you mean “pare” – to reduce (something) in size, extent, quantity, or number, usually in a number of small successive stages.
Yes, that’s exactly what we meant. Thank you for your note… some things do slip through the cracks and we appreciate you pointing it out.
Natalie and all of us @ The School of Making
