Sometimes, you have to do things without caring how they end up. This is one of those times.
I bought a piece of Kona cotton at Hancock Fabrics on Sunday.
I'm going to try to return it today.
You can see from the color catchers, this fabric is never going to stop bleeding. I can't trust it and I won't use it.
As I struggled with this piece of fabric, I remembered that a few years ago, I made this exact same mistake...except I didn't have the receipt. And, that piece of fabric went into the trash. I'd hate to throw this one away, too.
This made me angry. Very angry. Like, some of the stress of last week got vented into this piece of fabric kind of angry. Especially because Kona hasn't responded to my emails...very politely worded emails, and yes that was hard to do at the time...advising me what I should do about it.
So, I haven't tried to return it...because that wouldn't have been good for anybody. But, last night I was able to talk about it to Rob and today, I'm talking about it to you, and I've given up on whether I get my money back for this piece of fabric or not. It is my intention to ask for my money back. And, if I don't get it, I'll pull out my gentleman smile and leave.
It will not be the last $35 I waste in this lifetime. And, it won't break me. And, it's not worth being upset about.
And, I think our double wedding ring quilt is going to have an olive green background instead of red. And, I think I'll buy it from a reputable quilt store.
I didn't know Kona came from two places. And, only one of them is good. That's very confusing. You'd think the good place would stop the bad place from hurting the brand.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Wish me luck! And, calm!
