Factory Tour de Force

By Nate | August 29, 2007

Katie Pelkey (KP) leads a Vermont Teddy Bear Factory tour, August 28, 2007

I haven’t been on the Factory Tour with every Tour leader, but I got to go on one yesterday with Katie Pelkey (KP) . She started her career at VTB doing Bear assembly, and her expertise in that area really came through.

I was also impressed by KP’s energy, Bear spirit, and quick thinking. She had great answers for every question and really went out of her way to engage kids, as the pictures above show. Hats off to ya, KP. (I also have a little video from the tour, but we’ll save that for another day…)

    I can’t count how many time KP has misplaced her badge. Luckily, we keep a good eye out so folks don’t have to get new badges. 😉

    My seat is located above the tour route…and I would have to say that KP presents a fair tour! Keep up the great tours!
