|Tempting piles of luscious fiber|
I purchased three of these large (800 yards) hanks of
superwash merino for future projects
|See those orange signs on the edge of the table - marketing at its|
best! The signs changed each day, but actually said the same
thing - "(insert day of the week) ONLY - 50% off"
|Regardless of the somewhat misleading "Sale" signs, the prices|
were reasonable; the fiber content and color selection were varied.

|long rows of shelving held the yarn inventory|
|Each box had a color-coded label, and the end of the shelving|
was also labelled to aid those who fill orders. From the list, you
can see that the yarns are listed in alphabetical order
|Note the blue shopping cart used by person pulling an order to contain|
each order. JBW is careful to pull orders with the same dye-lot, and
if they do not have enough skeins, the customer is contacted. The girl at
the computer in the foreground is checking orders.
|These two workers check the order and put it in envelopes or boxes.|
Check out that huge roll of bubble wrap!
|Just outside the warehouse, mailing labels are attached to the packages.|
|JBW recently began selling quilting fabric. While only a small amount is|
on display in the store, the warehouse was well stocked with mostly
modern prints.The fabric is cut to the customer's specifications in the
warehouse. I took a photo of the cutting table (just visible in the left corner
of this photo), but that image is too blurry to post.
|Our tour guide (center) answered our questions and was delightful.|
