The fabric is back in the store!

This just seems to be the year for messes in my business structure. First Tara got married and decided not to come back - boy, what a mess with no one knowing where she kept files or lists - who got what, who had cancelled, yada, yada, yada.
Then the same shipping structures I have used for years seem to have collapsed and we're having to restructure the way we mail things.
And then my store people decided to upgrade things while I was in France & Salt Lake City. It was a good idea and I like most of the changes now that I know about them BUT

in the process they seem to have lost

all of the fabric in my store. You could see the cuts you could get (1/4 yd, 1/2 yd, etc) but the fabric itself disappeared.

I didn't even know it wasn't there until a customer told me she couldn't find it any more. Sure enough - no fabric.
Well, it's back. I just put it all back in and it better not disappear again. So there :)
I'm going to go sit on the deck and stitch for awhile. Whew!
Have a good weekend.


  1. I am glad you got it straightened out. Maybe now you can relax this weekend;)


  2. I'm drooling at the site of that yummy fabric!! Thank you for the gift for my eyes!

  3. hmmmm... sorry, I can only see the first 3 pictures on the fabric site. The other pictures are just blank. Maybe it's just me?
    have a nice weekend, jolanda

  4. Jolanda - I just went up and checked and they're all there on my screen. Whew - you had me scared there. You have to go down to
    Fabric - Black
    Fabric - Blue
    etc. and click on the words. Then the fabric come up. I don't know why the Fabric colors aren't right under the word Fabric but I can't get them to move.

  5. Jan- I ordered a yard of your homespun on 11 March. I am still waiting for it. I have sent countless emails to Byron, I have spoken to him on the phone many times, I have spoken to Tara twice. Once Byron did actually resend the order and the invoice was correct but what I received was the January Bible quilt block. I spoke to Byron about it but he doesn't seem to care. I spoke to Tara about it and she said she would send the fabric but that was 2 weeks ago. I don't know what to do, didn't want to contact you here but can't seem to get help via email or the phone. When I first started getting the Bible quilt BOM I wad being billed via paypal. Then on April I got an invoice mailed. When I sent the check I wrote a note to Byron telling him about the fabric I had never received and asking him to bill me via paypal. I explained that I am not good about writing checks and mailing them. I have also asked him over the phone to bill me via paypal. So, I have told Byron about my missing fabric via countless emails, many phone calls, and a hand written letter. I have asked to be billed for my BOM via the phone and written letter. Today I received the June BOM in the mail. I never did get May. I also have never received a paypal request for May or June payment. I hope that getting the May BOM isn't as impossible as getting the homespun has been. I have sent Byron my phone number MANY times but never received a phone call. Please help.
