    Today I was at one of the stores I do binding for and the Fabrica rep was there- young lady. I am making up a 18x17 rug of their product. We are talking the product and it got around to that both Fabrica and Masland are the same company which she stressed adamantly. I said no they are under the same umbrella and Masland is in Alabama and Fabrica is in Ca. But they are the same company she said. Anyway she showed where there was different numbers for the same product. Fine I thought. Anyway we went to the warehouse where the storeowner thought there was a problem. Just a tube mark where the end of the roll hit. She got all excited and wanted pictures taken and a claim filed. Looking at the very short distance on the backing she saw the letters MA on the backing and said that proves its Masland. Later on moving the carpet around we had it rolled back farther and it said in nice big letters "MADE IN THE USA."
    They live amongst us.

    Hey, I’m only trying to give back to the trade by training!
