Project Eagle Update

Bringing You The Pottery To Sell For The Paycheck You Want, For Fall And Holiday

As communicated last week, Project Eagle and Made in America continues to be our mission and our goal. We knew that this journey wouldn’t be an easy one, but with your support our commitment and determination to returning to a fully 100% Made in America product line is stronger than ever.

Until our American-made pottery can be made at the level of quality that we and you expect, and at the necessary volumes, to ensure that you have a strong fall and holiday selling season we will continue to accept and fill pottery orders using our international suppliers – the same high quality Woven Traditions® that you have known and loved for years. This means that you as customers can order any and all pottery featured in the flyers and WishList® and at a lower price than shown in the literature.

Longaberger president Mike Tempe has had personal conversations with our international suppliers and they have stepped up their commitment to delivering Longaberger customers the products they desire in the colors and quantities they want. Some of this pottery is already onsite and can be shipped immediately; the rest is in production now. We are working hard to make sure that pottery ordered will be in your hands by Christmas.
