Message from Jeff and Wenda

Hello Thread Logic Employees!

We hope you and your families are all safe, feeling well and adjusting to a new normal.  It goes without saying these are trying times.

We felt it was important to provide everyone an update as to what is going on here.

As you probably know, we have kept the website open and are continuing to take orders.  Order volume this week has been encouraging.  Not nearly what it was a month ago, but not as bad as last week.  So we are hopeful that is trending in the right direction.

Right now, Wenda and I are basically processing those orders.  Sarah has been in a few days as well as working from home to provide customer service. Mary is helping to get orders entered from home.  Laura is helping a few hours from home.  Nick is helping to get orders sewn and shipped.  Jody was in a few hours this week to help with logos.  Debbi is in a few hours today helping Jeff.  Thank you to them for helping out.

There may be opporutnities for some more help in the future.  It's just all going to depend on how many orders we get.  But we need to be careful to make sure the work environment is safe for everyone.

I have applied for Federal loans this week in hopes it will allow us to bring more people back as orders increase and when the Stay At Home order is loosened.

Our primary goal right now is survival of Thread Logic.  We are working really hard to make sure you all have a job to come back to when this situation passes.  I am optimistic about that, but as we have all seen, things can change very quickly.

Wenda, Jacob, Olivia and I are doing well considering the circumstances.  We are adjusting to a new normal as well.  We have no other choice but to do what we can to make sure Thread Logic survives. Sometimes that can mean making decisions that aren't fair to all or doing things that might not make sense in the moment.

We will do our best to keep you all informed about what's going on.  If you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask.

A final thought from an unknown author that was sent to me from a friend: “In times of crisis, average companies fail, good ones survive and great ones transform.”  There is little doubt in our minds this crisis will transform the way we do things in the future.  We will have to adapt.  We just don't know yet what that means.

We hope to see you all soon.

Jeff and Wenda
