It was the sort of deal which almost any West Valley cottage industry could strike. Parmeter, known for his hand- crafted furniture and carved doors, was in the audience when Bob Edgar of Salem made a speech about Oregon Marketplace, a non- profit organization that seeks to match Oregon manufacturers with Oregon suppliers. Edgar described how a Yamhill County distributor needed an acces- sory for tabletop spinning wheels. Called a Lazy Kate, the simple wooden device requires a base and three dowel rods. When assembled, it holds bobbins from the spinning wheel. The distributor needed 1,000 of them a year, at a cost about $3.50 each. Parmeter knew he had the wood- working machinery, the access to materials and the skill to turn out Lazy Kales. Christmas services announced Christmas pageants and worship services am planned by most West Valley churches. Following is a listing of events announced by area congregations. Christmas Eve, Dec. 24 Trinity Lutheran Church, Sheri- dan. Children's Christmas program and worship service, 7 p.m. Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Willamina. Christmas Eve Candle- light service, 10 p.m. St. Michael's Catholic Church, Grand Ronde. Christmas Vigil Mass, 7 p.m. Parish Christmas party follows. Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Sheridan. Special Celebration Mass, 10 p.m. Includes a Christmas play by parish children. Christmas Day, Dec. 25 Trinity Lutheran Church, Sheri- dan. Christmas worship service, 10 a.m. St. Michael's Catholic Church, Grand Ronde. Christmas Day Mass, 9 a.m. Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Sheridan. Christmas Day Mass, 11 a.m. "He came up to me after the talk and asked for specific directions on placing a bid," Edgar said. "He delivered his bid and a sample to my office a few days later." Parmeter's bid, one of five sub- mitted, was soon accepted. The distributor placed its first order in Octoher and after weeks of cutting, sanding and finishing, Parmeter delivered the first shipment last week. "It's not really what I want to be known for," Parmeter said, smiling as he checked out stacks of the sanded bases. "But it keeps work flowing through the shop and fills in income. It's a great job for a cottage industry." The Parmeter deal is significant in two ways, Edgar says. "We not only substituted an Ore- gon product for a potential import item, we were able to keep the transaction entirely within Yamhill County." More important, however, is the program's potential to work for others in the West Valley. The program is best for suppliers of all kinds, said Edgar, who once arranged to find an Oregon bagpipe band for a client. Purchasers need everything from plastics, metal- work, high tech and ceramics to toys, foods and artwork, he .said. In four years, more than 200 deals have been made through the program. "Anyone who manufactures a product, or could make one, should get in contact with us," Edgar urged."We'll get them into our data base and when the need arises, there they are." Area businesses currently buying supplies from out of state may also benefit, Edgar said. Oregon Market- place will attempt to find Oregon suppliers for goods and services, but won't compete with present Oregon suppliers. Interested parties may contact Edgar at Oregon Marketplace in the Training and Economic Develop- ment Center, 365 Ferry St. SE, Salem 97301. Or call 399-5181.
