Ten days ago, I had a long-time customer leave her i-phone when she left a pillow canvas for finishing. The irony is that in this day and age, all of my customers seem to have i-phones, rather than land lines. And while I have an i phone, I have no clue how to do any detecting work.
The funniest thing that happened was that Marcia looked at the phone # on the finishing order--she dialed the number and of course, it was busy!
Then, last week, a customer came by to get pointers about stitching long/short split-stitch on an animal canvas. She was working with whites and we just threw the tans and greens on the counter. Imagine my surprise when I discovered these threads (that is the CURRENT TERM). I put that in caps because I still believe in fibers!
For years, I have had customers who leave various and sundry items essential to their stitching.
Betsy Crawford has been a prime example. She and her husband moved back to Philadelphia and I miss her.
