S2E4: Comfortcloth in 2020

We heard you, and this week we are talking about… ourselves!

We were recently asked to give a presentation about what we do and we thought this would be a good opportunity to share it with you. We talk about how we were ramping up our business before the pandemic, how we pivoted, and how we are working on growing our business and our weaving skills today. 2020 was a doozy for all of us, but somehow we managed to not only survive, but our business started to thrive. 

It was a fun presentation that we are using as our jumping off point for our upcoming talk at the “Careers in Textiles Symposium” hosted by the Handweavers Guild of America. This is a two-day online symposium, spotlighting leading professional and industry trendsetters, sharing their experiences and providing insights on the diverse and changing landscape of textiles and fiber art. The symposium is open to all, but is geared toward young professionals, recent graduates and students. We will be speaking on Friday, March 19th at 4 pm. 

We are passionate about connecting the new generation of textile designers, artists, and creators with people who have been in different facets of the industry to create a mentorship bond to help everyone grow. We know we wouldn’t be where we are now without the guidance and support of others who have blazed the trail ahead of us. We hope that we can connect with future professionals and help guide them into finding or creating their own careers within the textile community. 

So, enjoy the audio portion of this presentation, and if you are interested, there is a video of this prevention with the accompanying slides and media in the show notes. 

We hope that you will tune in to join us and other amazing professionals during the “Careers in Textiles Symposium” taking place March 19th and 20th.
