Sad news .........

My LNS is closing .........My mom passed in front of the store yesterday and saw they were doing 40% off on all the store. Chuy had given me a 30 euros gift certificate for christmas. We went there this morning. Unfortunately, all the nice charts and kits were gone and it was hard to find a way to spend those 30 euros ... (I know it's hard to believe, but there weren't really anything left in my taste ...) So I bought 2 piece of fabric and 3 charts. The owner had left and the employee told me because I had a gift certificate she won't be able to give the 40 % off and will charge everything at regular price! It didn't seem fair to me as a gift certificate is money to spend in the store whatever prices they have. I had to argue with her to get my discount. I really felt bad as I was going to that store to buy my fabrics and liked it. Now the store is going to be closed and I will have bad memory of it ...

I think I'm almost done with the roof !!! I need to triple check if I forgot anything. When I look at the chart, my eyes almost cross as there are so many stitches all together ... I still have some white to stitch though ... Well, I'm hoping to work on the left side of the design tonight !!! Yeah to MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!!

Sorry to hear your LNS is closing and even worse that you had to be firm with them. :o(

Your Stitching has really come far since I first saw it. You must be close to the end.

quel dommage que cette boutique ferme.. mais tu as raison, ce n'est pas normal qu'elle t'ait compté tes articles au prix normal...

That is totally unfair about your gift certificate. Sounds like someone decided that customer satisfaction was no longer important. :(

I'm sorry to hear that your LNS is closing. Do you think the way they treated you is indicative of their usual level of customer service? If so, it's no wonder they're going out of business.

That is so sad about your LNS and not very nice of them to not give you the discount without arguement.

I can't get over how much progress you make each day in your stitching. Such beautiful work on the roof. Well done.

This piece is coming along so nicely. The theme is one of my favorite.

Sorry to hear that the store is closing. I'm glad you got the discount . Gift certificates should always be treated as Cash! Good for you!

Sorry to hear about your LNS. That's bad that you had to argue to get your discount.
