One of my orders came with mistakes…this is the third time for that particular company. I think I will stop buying from there…unless I make the cross-Canada jaunt to actually walk in and pick up what I want. It is so frustrating because it is a well known rug hooking store with some wonderful choices of fibres. The colours sent are not in my palette range for use. Nor do I want them to be… I am not returning the order because of shipping costs and the lack of a return policy on their website. Instead I took my time to over dye them. It is a good reminder to me about what not to do in business.
Here are the before and after pics…
Aside from that small frustration, I am doing fine here. I have a source for the undyed fibre and I will dye it myself from now on for my personal use and for my students. I had hoped to create a bit of a shortcut to my time involvement, but apparently that is not to be.
For my students and customers this is good news! It means I will eventually be offering up specially dyed fibres for sale in keeping with the palette and style I hook. 🙂
