Current TravelKate Status

December 17, 2015
I finally have some good news! After several weeks without production, I am back up and running, and producing TravelKates again. I have wood for all options in stock, and am effectively producing both Travel and MiniKates to order as I try to get caught up on existing and new orders.

With Christmas next week and the backlog, I am projecting new orders will not be shipped until after the first of the year.


September 25, 2015 – Black Friday
Well, I guess it had to happen some day. I went into the workshop today to clean up and look around a bit and realized the computer that runs my mill was off. I hadn’t noticed a power outage, so went over to investigate.

It isn’t good.

The computer appears dead and it looks like it will take a while to get production back up and running again. I will be working on it pretty intensely until that happens, but until I can get the black box breathing again or replaced, TravelKate availability will be severely limited. Please contact me via email before placing an order. At this point I have only a few TravelKates available. Unfortunately, I need to get the computer back up and running before restarting production, so I don’t expect to have any available at Rhinebeck at this point.

The one ray of light is that since I never got around to raising the pricing to accommodate the postage increases, I will hold the current pricing for the remaining stock.

My apologies for any inconvenience.
