However in early fall my other full time dyer had to start working half days due to family commitments. In late fall 2017 and through our Christmas season there has been a perfect storm of staff sickness and absences which has meant that the Miss Babs studio has not been fully staffed most of December into January.
The result of this is that we have not been able to create the yarns needed for the full presentation at VKL as we had planned. And there simply has not been enough time on this side of Christmas to finish creating those yarns. For this reason, we cannot present a cohesive and complete selection which is always my standard and expectation.
It has been a tough decision since we were truly looking forward to attending the show, but we have finally realized that we simply can’t attend with an array that we would feel comfortable with.
