Dear Mr. and Mrs. Fabricland,
I have been waiting for some time now for you to have what has turned into your annual pattern sale. I have given up hope of it ever happening. BMV also known as Butterick Vogue McCalls is having a sale this weekend, and even though I would rather buy from a local shop, I bought patterns online. Quite a few actually, and I would have bought them all from you should you have had them at a reasonable price. Even though your reasonable price is twice what I paid at BMV. So this means you have lost a sale. And as we all know if you had actually got me into one of your stores, I would have bought more than just patterns, some notions perhaps, a spool or two of thread, some fabric. There are online sales on patterns all the time, and Joann's (in the US) has pattern sales often. Seeing as how most of the Canadian population lives within driving distance of the US border, we all can go there and take advantage of their sales. Which I may do from now on, because I will never buy a pattern from you unless you have them on sale.
Mr and Mrs Fabricland, are you aware of the internet? I ask because I wonder how on earth you have the nerve to charge $20+ per meter for silk noil, when I can purchase it online for sometimes less than $10 and undyed for less than $5 per yard? You do know that anyone can go onto the internet and find these items, right? I am aware that I would have to pay for the shipping, but it would still be cheaper than buying from you, even with a membership.
Mr and Mrs Fabricland, I feel our relationship isn't working for me anymore, you charge too much for almost everything, your stores aren't pleasant to shop in, and as I mentioned, your patterns are overpriced. I feel like I am being taken advantage of. Everything I buy from you, I can purchase online and cheaper at that. You need to change, because I won't.
PS-you should spell check your advertising. There are often spelling mistakes and that annoys me too.
