Sew Steady COVID-19 Update
On behalf of the entire Sew Steady Team, we wanted to express our heartfelt hope that all of you are safe and healthy during these difficult and trying times.
We are grateful to be part of a creative and generous community that immediately went to work in supporting many during this pandemic. Quilting and Sewing Groups from around the world have designed, shared and made hundreds of thousands of face masks to protect our lives. We Thank You!
Due to the unprecedented scale in which COVID-19 has impacted all of us, we wanted to share some steps that Sew Steady has taken and continues to monitor on a daily basis to keep our team and communities safe, minimize the spread of COVID-19 and continue to deliver our products and services in a timely manner.
We have followed the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and international and local health authorities in countries where we operate. We have set up remote work stations for some employees and adhere to the current social distancing guidelines for those who must work at our production facility and office.
Due to the increased worldwide use of Acrylic (Plexiglass) for face guards, sneeze guards and protective barriers being used through-out many businesses and industries there is a mass shortage in this raw material which is used for our Sew Steady Tables and Inserts.
We continue to have very good relations with all our Acrylic suppliers and vendors and are happy to announce we will have planned material through the end of 2021. However, the high demand has resulted in short term rationing which has caused some delays in shipments of our tables and inserts.
We anticipate increased lead times for Sew Steady Table and Insert orders through the end of July 2020. Starting in August 2020 our supply chain should be back to normal with standard lead-times. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to manage production, inventory and orders to ensure fulfillment in a reasonable manner.
If you have any urgent needs, please contact us at:
800-837-3261 or +1 541-653-9121
We will continue to ship all Westalee Design and Sew Steady Accessory Orders in standard lead times and if combined with a table or insert we are happy to ship Westalee Design products & accessories seperate to expedite.
We would like to also thank our many Westalee Design / Sew Steady Educators who offered up their time and effort to create videos and projects to keep us busy, calm and productive while in quarantine.
With over 12 Free Classes on Sew Steady University we hope you have been able to take advantage of these fun and inspiring projects!
