Thank you

Hello Heather, I enjoyed reading the blog/stories sent in to your contest. What an excellent web site and way to stay in touch with your clients!    Clothing and style are the touchstones of my life. I can date any family photograph by the hair , or the sweater my mother wore.  I was lucky enough to be the daughter of a woman who could turn her hand to anything she chose, and lucky for me she loved fashion as well as all the other arts. Although Mother made a living as a potter and later as a potter and watercolor painter,  in the 1950's when I was a small child,  she made fabulous copper enamel jewelry , wove (or hooked) all the rugs in our home, wove  fabric, sewed our drapes, and then sewed every single item of clothing (except our JC PENNY Panties).   I bought my first store bought item ( a lovely light blue voile with spaghetti straps and a bias cut swirly skirt and lace down the bodice of the sweetheart neckline)  in 1973.      Mom lovingly sewed everything that  my sisters and I wore until we were in college. We were the best dressed girls in our county, and looking back in most any county!     I have ALL the prom dresses mom made us, 4 per year per girl at least.  Each unique and always a shock to our contemporaries ( She taught us to make batik prints and sew them up..a bit different in our cow town.)      What came to mind however,   reading your stories, was, that there is a dress or suit or jacket or hat or  pedal-pusher, prom dress, wrap around pant, petti pant, skirt, blouse or costume to describe each and every time of my life.  Every time I tell a "growing up" story to a friend or customer in my pottery shop or a relative I include the fabric, cut, color, weave, or style of the clothing worn by us all.   As important to me as clothing is, I wonder why I make my living as a potter/glass artist!?  All I can be sure of, is that I tip my hat to all the wonder people who design and sew and sell and believe in the integrity of the lovely clothes I can buy today. Thank You!  Pamela Quyle

Personally I can think of much worse than coming on replica watches store to be greeted by someone putting this down, slagging this off, slagging that off, saying this sucks, that replica watches store I hope you won take these criticisms too harshly as they are constructive and come from a good, caring place. No a full refund as the watch does not work at all and with the greatest of respect replica watches sale should of been when it arrived. So can I ask please again to confirm the address to send the rolex replica sale and I do expect full refund on watch with no charges from yourselves as mentioned on my previous emails to you. Now I have been fair with you on my responses with yourselves. I have offered to send this watch back to you. I am not sending this anywhere as the item is not fit for purpose nor you or I know what is wrong with this watch. Please offer me a full refund this is all I now want no repairs or another rolex replica sale or replacement. I only required a watch that was working from day one and it does not. Please now come back to me on how we resolve this issue.
