Thank you Vogue Patterns!

To say that I was unreasonably angry last Thursday would be an understatement. Was I in this state because something terrible had been done to a family member or because there was some great injustice in the world?  Nope...I was mad at Vogue Patterns because on the last day of the sale for about three hours, they put the new patterns up on their site at the incredibly L-O-W price of $3.40 a pattern.

I was ecstatic that they would offer the new patterns for their faithful customers at such a wonderful price on the last day of the sale.  I was also ecstatic because there were quite a few patterns that I wanted to purchase.  It's been two pattern cycles since I wanted to load my cart up, plunk down my credit card and wait for the pattern goodness to arrive.

So I had a minute at work and I took 10 precious ones to load my cart full of pattern goodness.  Then I had to go to a meeting but I consoled myself all during the meeting with the fact that when I got home I would order the wonderfulness that I had beheld.  I get home...boot up the computer...anxiously wait for Vogue Patterns to load...and horrors of horrors the new patterns had disappeared.

Peeved, annoyed, disappointed and very angry were all adjectives that described my mood that evening!  And we won't even begin to comment on how angry I was the next day when I found out that my sewing friends on the west coast were actually able to purchase the new patterns at the lower price for about 45 minutes.

Now fast forward to this morning...I'm at work skimming through my email when up pops this one:

I started grinning from ear to ear...I wanted to pump my fist in the air, scream out a hearty yes and do a victory lap around my office!  *LOL*  Instead I thought, that's the way to go Vogue!  Then I found five patterns that I just can't live without and put them in my basket.

But mostly I just want to thank Vogue Patterns for doing the right thing!  For realizing just how valuable their customers are and for making sure that their customers are happy.  It was a classy thing to do and I just wanted to thank you publicly for listening...

THANK YOU VOGUE PATTERNS! always, more later!


  1. Good deal! Vogue really came through for you and that they should. It's nice to be valued. Enjoy your new patterns:)

  2. Humph - not sure if I should be irritated or not. I'm a member of clubBMV, and I did not receive that email. Oh well, at least you blogged about it and now I know to go buy what's on my list (I think 3 patterns).

  3. YAAAAY!!! I'm so glad you got your patterns!!!

  4. I thought of you when I read that email this morning. (I'm not a Club BMV member anymore and still received it.) But I did check and patterns were not on sale for me in my non-member status. Which is OK because I already placed my order during the last sale, and even though I saw the new ones come and go, I decided I could wait on the few that I wanted. It's not like I don't have any patterns to sew until they do. ;-)

  5. I'm on the west coast and I put all of my patterns in the shopping cart only to have it up the price to the regular cost at the time of check out. I think it was around 9:00 pm my time, so it defaulted to the higher price at midnight east coast time. Believe me when I say that I am still sore over it. lol

  6. You are not only a sewing fanatic you are a great talanted writer! Reading upir blog is a great pleasure!

  7. I'm so glad to read a story with an..."Alls well, that ends well!!!
