Skacel: an international family

The thing I like most about Skacel is that we are a family run and family oriented company.  Not only do we have three generations of Skacels working here, but all of our employees and most of our vendors, have become part of our extended family.  

It is true that our vendors are across an ocean in Europe, but over the years we have developed close bonds.  I visit Germany once a year to connect with our family-owned vendors over there, and once a year most of them visit us.  Frequently when they visit, they stay in our home.  This gives us a very comfortable atmosphere to discuss business, family, hobbies, and whatever we desire.

This past Independence Day we were fortunate enough to have Thomas Selter (5th generation owner and President of addi) come stay with us and celebrate.  Thomas was such a sport that he actually dressed as Uncle Sam, which prompted us to name him and his partner, Claudia Malcus, King and Queen of Independence Day. 

       

Not all was fun-and-games for when we discussed the addi Lace Clicks we got into a little wrestling match.  Although it does look like I am in a death grip, fear not, I won! 

We have gotten one step closer to getting the production of the Lace Clicks into full swing!  Our estimated arrival date of these needles should be end of summer or early fall.  Don’t get the impression that I wrestle my vendors a lot.  It’s only on occasion.

  1. Hi! After I saw your collection for the Fall2009-10 I loved it so much that I wanted to sing in your website right away but I could not. How should I do it? Can you help me to get in. I love to knit and make my own designs some times too.
    Especially I loved that cabled sweater was made in blue and white color version from collection #10100243 Schulana Crealana 25 Fall 2009-10. How could I purchase it?
    Thank you so much for such amazing designs, they keep me inspired.
