I am so pissed off right now I’m afraid I might write something I will regret, but I feel like I have to update those of you who have been waiting patiently for this fabric shipment to arrive.
After repeated assurances from the manufacturer that it was already in transit two weeks ago, my contact went on a “business trip” to Japan – without his laptop, so he couldn’t forward me the tracking information. How convenient.
I found out yesterday that, actually, the shipment wasn’t on its way. In fact, it had been sitting there for the past two weeks doing nothing – and this after all the other delays!
He claims it’s due to the shipping company – “I’m afraid you think I’m lying to you, haha,” he wrote.
Yesterday was a holiday in Canada, so I couldn’t reach anyone to check up on this story. This morning I got some of the tracking information and (assuming it’s legitimate) I can tell that the shipment is actually moving now – but there is more bad news: according to the information I have, it won’t even arrive in Canada until June 5th.
I have been losing sleep over this because I feel like I am personally continuing to disappoint each of you who have pre-ordered kits and fabric (some as far back as February!).
I’m trying to remain calm. My friends and family would tell you that I am a very level-headed person and extremely slow to anger, but this fiasco has brought me closer to punching a hole through a wall than anything since… well… the last fabric shipment. I think it’s time to find a different supplier.
If any of you want to cancel your orders, I completely understand, because, “I’m afraid you think I’m lying to you, haha.”
