    For background on this, please read my original post on:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/23525.page

    I went to the quilt shop on Saturday, hoping to speak with the owner. Unfortunately, she was teaching a Moda class (waaahhh! I wanted to take that class, but that's another story entirely). So, needless to say, we couldn't speak face-to-face on Saturday.

    However, she tried to call me later on that day, but I wasn't home.

    So, I called her this morning, and told her my viewpoint on what happened on that day I was overcharged, and her son's attitude towards me.

    I was so happy that she was receptive and willing to listen to me. She agreed that my calculation on what was cut and what I was charged did not match. She said she would speak with her son and deal the situation in the right way. I told her that I don't think he knows how he came across to me, on that day. I also told her that I'm sure the incident was a mis-communication, and that her son was probably frustrated and confused about the receipt.

    I think the situation has been resolved, once and for all. I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to cut my new fabric and put this behind me. I wanted to add my thanks for your support, on this board. I wasn't looking for anyone to agree with me, necessarily, but thank you for hearing me out and for sharing your thoughts.

    Ethel,
    I am so glad you did speak with the owner about it. Glad it can now be laid to rest.

    Thanks for the update, I have wondered. Glad it all worked out. Did she say she would compensate you for the over charge?

    Well done Ethel, it is never easy to confront awkward situations, and you handled it really well. I have been popping back every so often to see what the outcome was. Enjoy your fabric now, and perhaps you will one day be able to take one of those classes after all.

    I was given store credit rather than a refund. I figured I was going to buy more fabric, anyway, so store credit for $6 and change worked for me.

    Didn't the son give you the store credit prior ?

    I *did* get my machine back and it seems to be working perfectly, again. The tension had to be fixed and he cleaned and oiled it.

    Yes, I was given store credit when the 'incident' first happened. I asked for store credit, and it wasn't a big deal to me. If the owner was going to be rude to me, also, I was going to demand to get my full-refund.
