Then to Itch to Stitch, our local Bernina Agent. Bernina do a fantastic five year warranty on electrical parts and 10 year warranty on mechanical parts. My machine spat the dummy at me the other day and lo and behold, she was three months out of her electrical warranty (I've had her for FIVE years? You're kidding me! I'm sure she only arrived a month ago! And I still love her as if she did.). But Itch to Stitch did some sweet talking and I've only paid freight, no repair cost. How cool is that? Next time I'm in Whangarei, I'm gonna go show them some luv'. (Of the retail kind, it's only fair, isn't it?)
And lastly to Wright Fabrics. They sell good quality, reasonably priced batiks over their website. I did an order (I treat myself occasionally) and although my payment went through, no fabric arrived. Usually they are fantastically fast so this was unusual (okay, the sounds like I order more often than occasionally). Anyway, when I called them, they had had the payment but no order had come through. And glitches happen, so I wasn't expecting it, but they sent me a half meter of fabric added to my parcel as an 'opps, sorry'.
Aww, the world is full of good people. Virtual hugs to them all!
