Our Values
All-Purpose Glue:
People & Our Community
The human bond is the strongest glue there is. Act with empathy, be generous of spirit and stick together. We’re crafting a better world!
Knitting Needles:
Collaboration & Teamwork
Magic happens when two pointy sticks work together. If one drops a stitch, the other picks it up; every stitch makes us stronger. When we all follow the same pattern, we can weave a beautiful blanket of warmth and achievement.
Blank Canvas:
Creativity
What are you going to make next? Let’s try something new! Something bold, simply stunning, innovative, or totally off-the-wall. Let’s be cheerleaders for our customers achieving their creative ambitions, and let’s challenge ourselves to approach our business with the same originality and curiosity.
Glitter & Shine:
Commitment
We’re go-getters. We hustle. Each of us must – and can – make a difference. When you see the need for something extra, go ahead and add the glitter. Make the whole world sparkle!
Bloom Forever:
Inspire Change
Every season brings its own flowers. We are restless visionaries, knowing the garden is a work in progress and continually planting for the future. New discoveries bloom from the seeds of curiosity and courage.
