True Up is 3! (Presents for You!)

Three years ago today, I published my first post on True Up. The site has grown by leaps and bounds since then, the fabric industry has changed dramatically, and amazingly I haven’t run out of topics yet — not by a longshot! It is definitely a challenge to post daily M-F (and to hold myself [...]
