Rate your LNS

After the issues I had ordering from the ONS, I went looking for information to see if anyone else experienced the same thing with them, or if this was just a fluke incident. From what I discovered, this is just how they do business. I ran across a message board for rating and reviewing your local and online needlework shops:

LNS Report Card

I just checked yesterday's post after I flipped through the report card and it was surely the ONS that I figured.

Contrary to popular opinion I had HORRIBLE services form abcstitch and I have never ordered from them since.

I hate that you had to go through something like that!

I haven't ordered from SB&B, but I have heard people have bad experiences with them. They seem to take forever. I prefer Needlecraft Corner for my ONS.

Thanks for posting this link! I like to find new LNS in my travels so I'll be using the report cards a lot :-)

yeah, I will never order from Stitching Bits & Bobs again. They took way way too long to get my order to me - and I live in the state in which they do business!!

Brilliant, Jennifer! Thanks for this VERY useful link!!

Love your Princess and the Pea. Ordering from SB&B takes patience. If you know that it is one thing but you were right - you were not treated properly. Thankfully, there are many other good shops out there. I order from 123 Stitch and from my friend Ann at Knowledge and Needles. Both have treated me very well.

I thought it was them you'd ordered from - they always take ages! A great link - thanks!

I figured it was this ONS...I once order from them and took almost three months to get my order *grrr* I've never ordered from them again.

WTG Jennifer! I knew immediately the store you were talking about even before you told me. This is a very useful link and thanks for posting it :o)

Thanks for the link. This will be very useful especially since I'm changing my ONS. I dealt with the same ones you commented on. I placed on order the third week of December and just received an email today to say that the order was being shipped. It'll be another week before it arrives. That's just too long a wait!!
