The Sisterhood of the Traveling Kit
First let me give you the disclaimer...I did NOT fall off my fabric diet. The kit in this story was purchased in December when I was having anxiety about the diet! lol Secondly I am in no way trashing Jan Patek or her design business...in fact I love her patterns. I have on the other hand read on her own blog that she in the past and obviously in the present has had issues with the mailing of her orders due to some issues with the local postal office.
So here is the sequence. I ordered the kit "Here Comes Santa" on Dec. 24th. After the first of the year I started trying to track it down. First I went on the website found the contact email and sent an email. After a week when I didn't get a response I called the number and left a message. A few days later I called again but the voicemail box was full. Then I called 2 more times and finally got a hold of Byron (love his name...just like my #1 grandson) and he said he would check it out. I left a message in a comment box on the blog...and met someone else who had the same exact problem! Turns out the email address person no longer works for them so don't leave an email. Byron called back 10 minutes later! and said he sees the order but obviously something happened to it and so he was sending me out another one! Sweet!
Over a month later on January 29th it arrived...in this condition!
and the postage on it was totally amazing! Besides the Flat Rate Mailer there were 5 - 1 cent stamps, 1- 5 cent stamp and 1 - 10 cent stamp! I had no idea there were 5 & 10 cent stamps anymore!
But, it was worth it cause look at this kit! I can't wait till it moves up the list as a must do!!!
...and Jan...someone in the postal service must have it out for you!
Happy Birthday HH...you are my sunshine!
