    Missouri Quilt Co. Too darn funny!!!

    They (Missouri Star Quilt Co., that is) sent such a funny note, telling me my items had been shipped!! Who ever does the writing every day for this Co. has a Great Sense of Humor. Do you all agree...?

    I agree. They always write something pertaning to the pattern I choose, yet not calling it by name. Also, I love the stories told when introducing the new daily deal. Best that has yet to come for quilting.

    Here it is:
    Thanks for your order at the Missouri Star Quilt Company!

    We just want to let you know that your quilting supplies have been meticulously gathered, placed on a red velvet pillow, and delicately escorted by 25 of our finest employees to our shipping department. Our master shipper has dutifully performed his craft, lovingly packing your order in the finest materials known to man.

    Our team gathered to give your package the proper send-off it deserved. Tears of joy were shed, speeches were given, and there was even a farewell cake. Following the festivities, the whole group, led by our local high school marching band playing the song Leaving on a Jet Plane, ushered your order through downtown Hamilton, Missouri. No, we don't own a Jet Plane, but your package was placed in the care of a roguishly handsome man who is riding in a majestic horse-drawn carriage which is on its way to your home as you read this.

    Although the products you've ordered will be sorely missed here at MSQC, we are overjoyed that they have found a good home. Take care of them, treasure them, and when you make something beautiful with them, make sure you share it with us on facebook, twitter, or just send us an email, we love to see what you make!.

    *Note the above is a slight dramatization of what actually happened with your order, but seriously we did ship it, and here is the trackin

    The best part is that they are just as customer oriented in the store .... maybe not as humorous, but always upbeat and positive and interested in the buyer - whether he or she be a neighbor or come from afar to shop in their store. I made a trip to Lola Pink (sp) store only to find it is out of business, then traveled on down the road to Hamilton where I received the best reception from a local directing me to the store to the clerks in the store who did much to make my experience a memorable one. I look forward to going back soon on another road trip.

    PS .... The employee even suggested another quilt store in another town! Can you tell I loved my experience?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I really enjoy looking at the daily deal every night-but I have received excellent customer service from them. They forgot to send my order and were very apologetic-compensated me greatly and they did a great job of rushing my order out. Great company to work with!

    Your post made me go back and look. Sure 'nuff, I had a funny message, too. I had never actually looked at it until now - just the subject line that said my order had been shipped. I guess I'll be reading them in the future.

    What a wonderful reply!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
