As the situation with COVID-19 is very fluid, we are working to stay on top of all recommended guidance for textile care professionals, as well as updating our events and memberships as needed. These are truly uncharted times and we're learning right alongside you as we navigate this pandemic together. We encourage everyone to stay calm, as rumors and panic are not beneficial to anyone.

We are proud of how quickly we and the entire textile care industry is adjusting, and we vow to always do what's best for our members and the public.

Yours in quarantine,
ALM Staff

Very much needed. I have been sharing with our non-profit laundry facilities who have concern for their worker community. GREAT IDEAL! I wonder if our disposable dependence will falter as supplies have been hard to get for our customers? We do have non-profit sewing centers that can move quickly for customization of products.
