Well, I don't exactly take it all back, but allow me to update you on my FabShop Hop prize. Tonight I got the following email:
First of all, I am sorry that your experience has not been what we would want it to be. For some reason I was under the impression that the shop hop through FabShopNet only did $10 gift certificates. But in 4 shop hops in 2011 they did the $100 gift certificate or kit. I was not aware of this change. I have been very ill and recovering from recent surgery. I had tried to contact FabShopNet to verify, but along with my delay, I had a hard time connecting to them with my schedule. We are not a full-time store. We are online only and it is our second/third job. This made it difficult for me to make connections. Again, I am very sorry.
Please use the "***" code at checkout for the $100 coupon. If you complete your order by Monday morning, we will expedite the shipping, so that you receive your package before Christmas.
Again, I apologize for the problem with the coupon. We sincerely hope that you will give us the opportunity to fulfill our obligation.
(Yes, I blanked out the code for this purpose.) Needless to say, my feelings about this online shop are no longer totally negative. Actually, having forced myself (dripping sarcasm) to spend that $100, I am feeling quite positive toward the shop.
And guess how long it took me to shop after I read this. Right, not very! At all!!!!
7 Charm Packs!
2 Yards of solids!
12 Batik Fat Quarters!
And no real plans for what I will do with any of them.
But when did that ever stop a quilter from buying fabric with a gift certificate?
