Today an order I placed for some french terry, black lace, printed cotton, and sweatshirt fleece arrived. When I opened the box, to my chagrin instead of the white french terry (which was very clearly stated in the order) was some white polyester charmeuse!! SAY WHAT??? This order was placed with Fabric.com, and this is not the first time they have tried to pawn this stuff over on me. When they did it the first time, after I notified them that they sent the wrong item, they re-sent the same crap back to me! I was really mad. I stopped ordering from them for a long time. Then not long ago, I made a small order to see if they pulled their heads out of their butts (they had a whole new website etc) And they actually got it right. So I decided to take a chance and try another order…DUMB MOVE! Once again they pull a fast one. YUCK!
As for pushing crappy poly satin on people… Is this what their company does?? If they don’t have what you want, they try to shove some yucky fabric in there instead? Does this tactic actually work with some people?? Do they like grody poly like this? Because I so DON’T.
I contacted the company by phone, and talked to a customer service rep. They told me to box up the fabric I didn’t want, and that UPS would come back to get it. Then she stated that they would send a replacement out to me with the correct fabric I ordered. After I got off the phone, I went to their website to find the fabric was no longer there! A few minutes later I received an apology email for not sending the correct fabric. Then in about an hour they sent another saying they didn’t have any more fabric in stock, and that I need to send a reply email to get my money back! AGAIN…SAY WHAT? Hey Fabric.com…how about you just give me my damn money back period!!! Why do I have to send you a damn thing!?
I think I will be sticking to MOOD FABRICS from now on. Fabric.com had better refund my money or I will raise hell. The UPS guy better arrive as well….or you know what I am thinking?…They sent the crappy white s**ty fabric to try to scam me out of money! Yea…I don’t think so Fabric.com. You guys suck.
Anyway…here is what DID arrive…
|Cute starry sweatshirt fleece|
|Retro looking cotton for a sundress|
|I love this lace.|
If the UPS guy actually shows up as he is supposed to, WITH THE LABEL (as she said!) to send the crappy white fabric back, I will be ok. This is the last chance I am giving this company…I would encourage all of you to BEWARE of these people. OH…and FYI…when I ordered the white french terry, there was PLENTY in stock!! It was not like I chose to order with only 5 yards on the bolt or something!
I ended up ordering the white french terry elsewhere. I just hope the place I ordered from comes through for me! I am quite annoyed at the moment.
On to a different subject now…
Once again the weather is surprising me big time. We have had a ton of rain today! It started at 6am, and hasn’t stopped but for a few minutes here and there. When I went out to get the mail, it was chilly! AMAZING! When I was driving on the Colonial Parkway the other day, the dogwood trees are already beginning to show a tad of color change!!!! WOW! This early??? REALLY??? very unusual.
Today I posted The Cupid Dress up at the Sugar Bee Crafts link party. Check out all the goodies for yourself. 🙂
I am now going to relax with some fashion magazines on the couch, and drink a cup of tea. The weather has really kicked my butt today. Tomorrow I plan on finishing up the Galaxy dress I have been working on. I didn’t get around to working on it today. I have so many things I want to make, so I need to get it done.
I hope you are having a great week thus far.
Until next post,
