Since I like to complain when I receive lousy customer service, I also like to commend businesses that provide excellent customer service.
Tonight, I need to tell you how happy I am with Bee Sew Whimsical in Australia. I've wanted some specific Australian patterns for a while, but I've been a bit apprehensive but ordering from another country was a bit intimidating. I ordered three patterns on February 25th (which was the 26th there) and they arrived today, March 3. That was fast. Not only that, Darlene included a bonus little stitchery pattern and a yoyo! Great Job, Darlene! Thank you, and the next time I want a pattern or something from Australia, you'll be one of the first places I look for it!
At the same time, I also should mention Mrs. Martin's Quilt Shop. Karen is also in Australian shop owner and I've ordered from her two times in the past and also shipped very quickly and is always very friendly.
So feel free to go ahead and order from either of these shops anytime you feel an urge to stock up on some of the great Australian patterns out there!
