Our Coats & Clark Sewing Team has almost 90 years (we really aren’t that old!) of experience in the sewing and craft industry and each of us will bring a different perspective. Check out our profiles, but here’s a little summary.
Nancy and I are the sewing enthusiasts in the group and we want to share our enthusiasm with you through projects and what I’ll call “sewing adventures”. Ken is the Thread Product manager. Want to know how a new thread is “born”? He’s your man. Carmen is our Zipper productmanager and new to sewing. Nancy and I intend to change that and will keep you updated on her progress.
Ok—We promised to share a secret, SO. .. What does O.N.T stand for? In 1866 when George Clark created the first thread suitable for using on that new fangled invention the sewing machine, he called it Our New Thread –O.N.T. and the rest is history!
Now you know what you do with a secret . . . Pass it on!
