I'm new to this site & found it through Facebook. I saw an ad for Karen Kay Buckley scissor set but the box brought me to the regular page & I haven't found the scissors yet. After looking at some of the things that have been posted as ended, I can see this site will be beneficial for quilting & sewing items, but have to agree with another poster about the fabric choices. I'm sure the big name brands like Moda are not going to sell to us to protect their local quilt shops, but they forget not everyone has a local quilt shop & those who do can only get the limited fabrics the shop owner chooses to carry. In my case, my shop is 45 min away & does not carry full lines, choosing to carry precut of lines with 1-3 regular bolts of that line. If I really like something I go online to fill out my fabric requirements for a project. And I love loud vibrant fabric & have to get most of that online also. Thank you for having this site & I'm looking forward to buying things here. I've also noticed from other poster's that delivery time can be lengthy, is that because you take the orders first & then procure the item?
First off - welcome to Massdrop!!!! I hear ya on the fabric selection. Joquilter13 is right in that there are a few highly sought after fabric lines that do not want to work with the Massdrop community. I am working on trying to secure more vibrant fabric collections from companies that will work for us but there's usually a 6-8 week lead time and that's if the fabric is already made. There's a lot of moving puzzle pieces! :-)
Joquilter13, yes, the length of time to receive a product is anywhere from 3-8 weeks and it is exactly for the reason you state. When the drop ends, usually after 7 days, we then place the order and have it shipped to our warehouse which in turn ships out to members.
