As Ashland Bay customers now know the sale of the Dyed Top division of Ashland Bay is now complete! We are so excited for the new owner of this part of the business, Foxglove Fiberarts Supply. Most in the fiber arts industry already know Cindy Howard-Gibbon, the owner of Foxglove. Cindy, Jill, and I are all excited for the renewed emphasis that Foxglove will bring to the dyed top product lines.
Both Jill and I have mixed feelings about leaving this segment of the business. It’s where Ashland Bay started, and we still have customers today that we sold “dyed Colonial Top” to in the mid 1990’s. There is nothing we can write that could adequately express our gratitude to you and the privilege we feel for allowing us to be a part of your business for the last 25 years. Change is always scary but also necessary. We at Ashland Bay can rest easy knowing that the dyed top business is in good hands!
We are also excited for the ability this sale gives us to focus on our current product lines of ecru wools and yarns. We have been working behind the scenes on improvements to our business processes that will be in place shortly!
