    Tom blog post on fabric cut :)

    When I saw that blog post that is all I could do not to book a trip to
    Seattle to see the factory and the people who make our wonderful bags.

    TOM BIHN Blog - Tom Explains Materials: Straight Slit and Bias Cut

    Tom also pointed out his inspiration for Forest Green, a most beautiful area on my visiting list .

    I think we need to rent a big bus. It would start in the northeast somewhere and pick us up, one by one, and keep driving west until it got to Seattle.

    Yes, but would there be enough products to go around when we all got to see the store in person? And this is the wrong direction for me and Just; we'd have to swim.

    It would take a while for the bus to get there, so the TB folks would have plenty of time to stock up for us.

    Maybe you and Just could start on a cruise ship, go around the world, and be the first people on the bus. :-)

    Alas, I believe we will all be signing up in our dreams.

    Can you imagine a bus of TB enthusiasts singing "100 Aeronauts on the wall, 100 Aeronauts, take one down, pass it around, 99 Aeronauts on the wall..." while trapped in a moving vehicle? AWESOME!

    Not so, the cost of hiring a bus might be prohibitive but boarding a train in off season might not.

    The Empire Builder goes to Seattle in 48 hours!
    Amtrak - Routes - Northwest - Empire Builder

    Because it starts in Chicago, it links to many towns in the country via other rail lines and discount airlines.

    The same goes for an airline ticket with non flagship airlines in off season.

    Over the seas TB fan might have to use flagship airlines, if there are no other choices.

    It is doable!

    The train! I would love taking a train! I would bring my Swift for my knitting, but I would pack all my clothes in plastic grocery bags so that I could use my new TB Aeronaut on the way home. :-)

    OH! I just realized that the name of that train line is Empire Builder! I think it's a sign. We need to go.
