ever been told to leave a quilt shop???
Today I was told to leave a quilt shop because I was talking to a friend about fabric we were suppose to get and didn't. This was a Thimbleberries quilt club from last year, today was the day we were suppose to start up the new year but we still hadn't gotten all the fabric from last year. At one time the other day I was told I had all the fabric I was suppose to get and there was no shortage, today they tried to substitute a green for the beige border and a green for the blue binding, it just looked like crap and also was not part of the club pattern. Evidently they couldn't read the instructions and can't afford to get the fabric the quilt/pattern club required. We pay good money (a couple hundred dollars) to do this project and this is the second year they messed up and they were starting the 3rd year without the pattern for month one. I did get a refund of the fabric that I wouldn't except since it was wrong and I did get a refund for the club that was suppose to start today but after the experience I have had with this quilt shop it will be one I won't go back to. I have 8 quilt shops within a half hour drive from me so it really isn't a loss for me but for them the more that hear about it the more people won't want to go to that shop.
