    Happy Valentine's Day!

    I made this runner for a client who asked for a Valentine's themed pattern with hearts, mostly red, with black and white background fabric. Then she decided she didn't want it after all, grrr. I love it though, and if it doesn't sell, it's going on my dining room table. So there! Anyway, thanks for looking and Happy Valentine's Day!

    Very pretty, can't see why she didn't want it.

    Very Nice ! This is why I would not do well sewing for customers. You give them what they ask for & then they don't want it.

    It's great... How rude that your customer let you make it and then didn't buy it. A non-fundable deposit would have been nice. Harumph.

    That is very pretty. Don't know why she would not want it. When people ask me to make stuff for them, they have to pay a deposit; which is half off what it cost. The deposit is non refundable.

    Definitely going with non-refundable deposits for any new customers. Only my older customers who have been so wonderful in the past get the benefits of pay-on-delivery. You should consider that, also. This table runner is really cute. I'd keep it too!

    I always collect 50% up front when the order is for a full-size quilt (baby, on up). Since the runners are smaller and generally easy to sell, I don't collect a deposit ahead of time, plus this client has been a pretty faithful customer and I'm afraid of rocking the boat. However, this is the third time she has ordered a runner and then decided against it, so I guess I'm going to have to change my policy. Dang.

    I like it! Maybe you should ask for a deposit in the future? At least you wouldn't be out 100% of your money that way...

    Maybe it would have been a good idea to draw out the design first and show her, and let her help with the fabric selection. And then, get a NONREFUNDABLE deposit for the table runner.
