NEW YORK — In 1863, Yorkshire, England, native Thomas Kay arrived in Oregon, bringing his weaving expertise to the new state in the Northwest and ultimately laying the foundation for the company that today is Pendleton Woolen Mills.
With the 150th anniversary of that special moment in Pendleton’s history looming, the company is launching an apparel line called The Thomas Kay Collection. The men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and home collection honors the founder’s vision and craftsmanship. It also targets a new customer, one who loves classic pieces but is looking for a modern fit and more timely fabrics and details.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
