Patterns Made in the U.S.A. May 19, 2016 12:28

Recently I watched a documentary highlighting how many of our American manufacturing jobs have been moved to other countries with foreign workers.  Realizing this is a global economy I became more aware of the value of products Made in the U.S.A.  This label means I am directly supporting American jobs and our economy.

Raspberry Lane Crafts patterns are made in the U.S.A. and here's a list of the local companies that I use supporting American jobs:

Two local printing companies (one for copies/one for art prints) (Colorado)

A photo company (New York)

Art supplies (Illinois and Wisconsin)

Ads in quilting and cross stitch magazines (Indiana)

Packaging company (Wisconsin) 

I'm checking my labels for U.S. companies!  It just takes a second.
