a post sandy update

Thanks to those of you who have emailed in asking how Oliver + S weathered (pun fully intended) the storm. In short, we’re fine.

Last night was not without some drama as the East River came to within 20 feet of our building’s front door, but we’re feeling very lucky that the only impact to us will be the loss of power at home for a few days. Many of our neighbors and the small business owners in our community were not so fortunate.

Our studio suffered no effects from the storm, and we have power and communications there. The website remains open for business as usual. You’ll experience no delays with your orders as our technology and warehouse operations did not see any impact from the storm.

    Glad to know that O + S is ok, and I hope your neighbours are too. Just wanted to say a special thank you for the wonderful pictures posted to illustrate/introduce the patterns. I hadn’t realised the extent of the detail offered by patterns until I really paid attention to your pictures in your past blogs. Sometimes, I find it hard to see all the details ( and therefore the potential) on the shop section of the site. Thank you; it’s whetting my appetite for more patterns. Keep up the brilliant work!!
