Happy Holidays from SPESA!

Dear SPESA Members,

Thank you for another amazing year of support and enthusiasm for the sewn products industry. This year, we dove back into live events, while continuing to deal with the impact of the pandemic. We addressed supply chain challenges and tested workplace strategies. We demanded support for the U.S. industrial base. We focused on innovation. And we wore some silly hats.

All in all, it was a pretty good year.

We also had a change in leadership in 2021, as Nina McCormack passed the SPESA Chairman gavel to Ed Gribbin. If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to read Nina’s final message to the membership as Chairwoman. We are incredibly grateful for Nina's leadership, encouragement, and friendship during her tenure. And we have no doubt that Ed will continue in her footsteps, pushing SPESA into its next exciting chapter.

We look forward to working with the SPESA officers, Board of Directors, and all of our members to grow and support the sewn products industry even more in 2022.

Happy Holidays from your SPESA team!

Michael, Maggie, and Marie
