A couple of weeks ago, something very nice happened! A regular WFMZ (Reading's local news channel) viewer, Cristen, emailed me to say that she had come across my socks online and saw that they were made in Reading and that she had written WFMZ to suggest that the anchormen might consider wearing these locally made socks. A reporter from WFMZ, Jim Vasil, wrote back to her the same day, and she put us in touch.
A week later, I boarded the Bieber bus to go to Reading, PA (my hometown and where the socks are knit), to have a little interview in the store at the GoggleWorks (a really wonderful community arts center in Reading that used to be a goggle factory – it's also the only place THIS NIGHT socks are sold in Reading).
Thank you so much, Jim and Tim (the nice cameraman) of WFMZ and Cristen!
