Last month was the official one year anniversary for North St Bags! I'm waiting to celebrate until Bike Craft (my debut event last year) but I thought I'd share some status updates.
I've made many more than that - 193 bags total.
Some recent news: I've recently hired Mara, my first production assistant, who comes in to help with cutting and prepping. I'm trying to step up my production capacity a little bit, and need to start delegating some stuff. She has been great - very creative and attentive to detail.
Also, my studio has sprung a leak in the recent rainstorms, which has been a fun extra thing to deal with.
I've got a peek at another new product which I'll be introducing at Bike Craft 2010:
Basically I'm going for a step up from the grocery pannier (more durable, waterproof, more secure) but without all the features of the Woodward. It's a simple roll-top pannier design, tapered for style and accessibility. It features a waterproof ripstop nylon liner, a reflector which wraps around the front and one side, d-rings to add a shoulder strap, and the basic hook & bungee setup. Useful for extra waterproof cargo space and light touring. I'll have two sizes available. Come be the first to check them out at Bike Craft 2010.
I also have some new colors in stock:
For Fabric: Charcoal, Burgundy and Midnight Blue
For Straps & Trim: Burgundy, Teal, and Pink!

When you order your new bike pannier or convertible backpack pannier you’ll need to select the hook size that best fits your bike’s cargo rack. These hooks—two near the top of the pannier—slot over the horizontal tube(s) of the cargo rack and then a bottom hook on a bungee holds tension for a secure fit.
While it’s a simple system, one of the most common questions we get is: what’s the right hook size for my bike? Click to read more.
