    TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING SALES

    Well, I said I'd make an announcement back in November, but it took this long for me to decide, so here it is.

    On November 10, 2018 I had a heart attack. This cemented my decision not to have a Black friday sale, as well as the roll out of two new quilts. Over the following days and weeks I debated what to do with Loco Libre Gear. My doctors told me to eliminate all stress from my life, but as you know that's a difficult task. I debated a number of options, including closing LLG, but that is off the table for now. In the meantime my daughter has really stepped up and worked hard to fill your orders in my absence. Unfortunately one person can't do the work of two, and quite frankly I've hated the long lead times, so I've decided to suspend taking orders to give us a chance to get caught up. As of Saturday, March 16, 2019 the store will be available to browse, but there will be no option to "ADD TO CART". Once we get caught up I will let everyone know and we will back at with much shorter lead times. My hope is not to be down for more than 4-5 weeks, but we will see. In the meantime all orders placed up until 3/16 will be fulfilled in the order they are received.

    Also, please understand this is for my health - I won't be taking phone calls, as this will only slow the process down. As always you can reach us at [email protected]. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Do what is best for You and Your Family. No one knows the future, but your Doctor’s guidance can help set you on course through the unknown...

    Praying for your speedy recovery, and glad you are not closing LLG. Your quilts are the best of the best. Just my humble opinion. Be healthy, and heed the good doctor's advice!

    I understand how hard it is on you, to say the words. I must say that this post also speaks volumes about the small cottage customer service. You could have kept it private, or closed. I think I can speak for all of us that we appreciate your honesty.

    I have no orders in so maybe I'm out of line here, but winter is pretty much over. i hope you can take care of things in a leisure way as you se fit. Eat healthy and get your excercise. Thank you for not closing, we lost one already this year. Godspeed Sir.

    It's better to have you around not making gear, than to not have you around at all. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself. Prayers for you and your family, George!
