Not gear persay, but I have been pleased to note that Fiskars is starting to make some of their notion line once again in the US for sewing. Yet.....beware: if you buy at Walmart, the same items are from China. At Jo-Ann's, US made. And it doesn't come cheap: I bought a new rotary cutter yesterday that was $12 more for the US made one. I coughed it up.

So read the packages! You can support US made items when you sew gear!

Thanks for the Fiskars information. I use their rotary cutters also. One of the best inventions since the scissors :D

Yep! We made it a BIG point to have our books printed in the US and support printers here :) I also try to buy only fabric woven/printed in the US as well. The Insul Bright fabric I use is milled here in the States, one of the mills is in Washington State on the Olympic Peninsula.

Also made in the US that I carry:
White Box Stoves
HP Stoves
Trail Designs products
The pint and quart freezer bags are US made
Pocket Duct Tape (made in the US, assembled by mentally handicapped adults in Wisconsin)
Germ-X products
Emergen C


One of my favorite companies is Cascade Designs. I got to tour the company after hours with a friend who works there 2 years ago...and wow, it was one of those tours that only a gear whore would love :D Old school all the way.

I'm grateful that you are carrying a product made by those having a disability. They are a great source of quality products. It will do us good to search out those products and dealers.

Thanks for looking in that direction Sarbar. Thanks for the product update. ;)
