Changes coming for Wool2Dye4 …
Hello from Sheila,
Wool2Dye4 is about to celebrate an important event at the end of September . We are changing leadership and joining efforts with Chester Wool Company, a British yarn producer which has grown to the position of the leader in our field. In my personal eMails to customers, and sometimes in the newsletters, I often refer to ‘our UK supplier’ and ‘Mr Wool,’ aka Andy Robinson. Andy is President of Chester Wool and we have worked together over the years to grow both of our businesses to become the most prominent un-dyed yarn distributors in the US and Europe. Wool2Dye4 started with a modest handful of seven yarns, and today we carry a stunning variety of more than 70 yarns. I am amazed every time I think of our growth, and Andy is responsible in great part for this growth. He recognized our potential right away and shared his willingness to take us on his journey to become a world class manufacturer of highest standards.
As of September 30, 2016, I am retiring from Wool2Dye4 and handing the company over to Andy’s capable hands. You will love what’s coming for Wool2Dye4, and I know you will enjoy Andy’s energy and his enthusiasm for business. One of the reasons that I have had such a good time growing Wool2Dye4 to the position it enjoys today is due to Andy’s energy and commitment. Early on, we discovered that we both worked the same way, we thought the same way, and we each recognized that the other understood customer service. Very important.
Andy is here in Virginia with me for the last two weeks of September, and we will work side by side to assure a smooth transition. Wool2Dye4 will continue as a US company, and Chrissy will continue as Wool2Dye4’s manager. Jo and Sean will continue to pack your orders and get them out at our usual quick turn-around time. The work of Wool2Dye4 will continue to run in an organized fashion, but look out for lovely new yarns and maybe some new ideas in the new Wool2Dye4.
Andy already has an eMail … Andy@wool2dye4.com … so he is ready to start talking about your future, your needs, and his ability to make them happen.
I hope you know how much I do love Wool2Dye4, and that I have loved every day of developing this business. I am an entrepreneur at heart, and it has been a thrill for me to meet customers who are ready to grow, and refine their lines, and who care about their professional success. I hope that, through my work as your yarn supplier, I was able to share something of my love of the home-based business model. Remember to keep the passion alive for your business. In all things be true to your goals, and stop every once in a while to review your plans and goals. Above all else, keep reminding yourself that your small business should improve the quality of your life.
For me, my business has definitely improved my life. My customers are the best in the business, and I will miss the daily interactions, the personal notes, the surprise of a thoughtful word. I thank each and every one of you for your business, for your friendship, and I wish you continued success as you continue to grow.
All the best,
Sheila Trunzo / Wool2Dye4
