Carl Cordell, American Canvas Products

The very first Advanced Textiles Expo I went to we bought a machine from an exhibitor that next year and it helped our shop totally transform.

Throughout the Expo, we repeatedly run into our customers. You can’t shake hands with a fax or look an email in the eye.
