time marches on like a slug here. Dates looming and my progress is feeling very slow. Jobs from january, cold from grandchildren, and a nasty throat from flame proof lining. Will wear a mask today, as much as I hate it.

I don't know why I didn't say the first part of the mission statement more clearly before : we want people to know they can hire us direct.

As a group ( as undefined a group as we are ) we should have a mission statement. General, so as to keep it above commerce and competition among us.

We support one another with a committment to making slipcovering more an art with all the varieties that can be presented in art. We're not slinging hash ( same old same old ).

We support one another with the generativity ( look it up ) that provides for the successsion of the next generation of slipcover makers, and continuity of our art.

We show each other how to best prosper and anchor ourselves, commercially and personally, and to grow leadership within our peer group.

We foster the inclusion of all who demonstrate interest in the occupation, without judgement or fear.

We want to beat the pants off purveyors of mass~slipcover~crap. Said better of course. We strive to elevate the product, and master the art of slipcover service. We strive for originality that best suits the taste and lifestyle of the end user, long product life and wear, and to offer the information consumers need to make wise choices.

We teach as a passion. To one another as a peer group, to anyone who would buy or has bought a slipcover, and to all those who promote and sell our unique services.

Long and kinda preachy, the essence is good, the length and mood is off for a site who is just trying to grab someones attention. Good for us ?
