We have made the decision to carry on sewing while it's safe to do so. Dudiedog Bandanas is based in the heart of The Yorkshire Dales National Park, and we realise that we're very lucky to have so much free space around us for Skye Blue to continue to enjoy his lovely long walkies. We realise that life must be very different for many of you, and very difficult.
We have changed some aspects of the business to make things safer. I no longer do the daily drive to the post office in Grassington. I have large stocks of stamps, and most normal sized orders go in our village postbox, which I pass on our walk. I'm currently making one trip to the post office weekly, to post International and larger orders...anything I can't put in the postbox. I hope to continue in this way for as long as possible. I have large stocks of lovely cotton fabrics, so it's unlikely I will need to take any deliveries, and in quieter times I can start sewing stock for the Christmas rush! I think that cute bandanas and bow ties are a fun pick-me-up at a time like this, and even from a distance will help to create a much needed smile.
The most important thing is that you all stay safe and well. We will get through this if we all pull together.
Jan & Skye Blue
