    Awesome to meet more of the terrific Tom Bihn staff! Whenever I use my bags--which is just about every day--I think about the dedicated and skillful folks who make them possible.

    If you were to build a house one side at a time - the front, the back the sides - installing the windows, the doors, even the interior cabinets as you build each side, "joining" would be putting all the pieces together into a whole house. That's pretty much how we build our bags.

    More new photos of our Seattle Factory Crew posted today!

    As long as you guys want to see more photos, we'll keep taking them.

    Good question -- we'll write a short article about the joining process for the blog. It's a vital step in the production of bags such as the Aeronaut and Empire Builder.

    That conifer bag looks scrumptious!

    Thank you for taking the time out of the move to post pictures and updates. So we can be included in it too. And at least to know - hold off on our next order to give everyone a chance to get settled!

    The moving pictures are a treat to see. Our excitement about the growth of the company, seeing the faces of those that make our bags and their new space, and being impressed that in the middle of a move - you have time to post pictures! Well done Darcy!

    Cheers!

    Great to see that the move has gone well; and the new space looks wonderful---large and sun filled! Having seen the old space, I am sure this is going to be better to keep up with the growth! Thank you for sharing your move with us...!!!

    I was so excited to find the pictures on FB this morning! Honestly, I feel like you guys are friends and I am glad to see that the move is going smoothly so far.

    If I lived on your side of the sound I would want to work for/with you!

    Wow, Tom, congratulations! What a huge space. A far cry from when I remember visiting you in your tiny little shop on Locust St in Santa Cruz so many years ago.

    (Still have the bag you sewed up for me - a small café bag all in black.)

    My collection of Tom Bihn bags has certainly grown since then. Looking forward to many more bags (Plum! Ultraviolet!) in the future.

    Best to all.
