    Woohoo!! It's been a while since we've been open on a Saturday, but in the past they've been really fun days in the showroom: everyone's on a more relaxed schedule and there's time to hang out and really talk bags. Plus, cookies.

    No I didn't check flights to Seattle on those weekends just to see if going there was even a remote possibility. I totally didn't do that. Stop looking at me like that.

    OMG!!! I've never been to Seattle before; I'll probably never get there again, and I'd just reconciled myself to the idea that I wasn't going to be able to make it from SeaTac to the Mothership in time on the Friday. Now, I'll see y'all on the 14th!

    No, that's not Wasabi or Sitka you see on my face, though I'm totally GREEN with envy!

    I will be in Seattle in July on a Monday and Tuesday, leaving early Wednesday morning and thus missing my chance to visit the Mothership.

    Have so much fun on your visit!

    I am going to a nursing conference in Seattle in May and actually planned my trip to arrive on Thursday night so I could visit the showroom on Friday. The conference officially starts on Sunday. Now I can go twice!!!
    BTW, I'm newly registered but have been lurking for a long time.

    I want everyone who can to go to so that they have the unique opportunity to meet the founder, I met Tom in 2011 and he is a wonderful person.

    I came on a weekday, so, many of the administrative Crew and a couple of people from the sewing Crew were there.

    I met Darcy and June, lovely, lovely, lovely ladies!

    The Showroom has been renovated, so please take and share lots of pictures!

    Very tempting to drive up to Seattle on the weekend! I can't tell you the last weekday that I could get off! (and you were open....)

    One question, do you allow mostly well-behaved dogs? It's ok if the answer is no, but I didn't want to assume.

    I'm totally bummed... I'm going to be in Seattle this month, but only on two Sundays and a Monday, so the store will be closed. I was hoping I'd finally get to visit.

    We'd be glad to make an appointment for you guys (and anyone else!) to come by on Mondays or Tuesdays: emailus@tombihn.com to make that happen. In general, we're at the factory 6:30am - 2:30pm. Exception: holidays, like the upcoming Monday of Memorial Day weekend (we won't be at the factory that day and the showroom won't be open).

    This is thrilling and wonderful and we will definitely be making these arrangements for July! I really cannot wait! Thank you, Darcy!

    (And thank you, @AlaskaGirl, for suggesting this over PM as well. You people, with your helpful ways....)
