The phone rang early this morning - well before it was time to unlock the doors. It was an elderly customer that lives seventy miles north of our store. She was looking for a particular fabric to make a quilt for an autistic great grandson. Since we didn't have the fabric she was looking for I suggested she try quiltshops.com. Being 84 she said she didn't have access to a computer.
I asked her if she had a daughter or granddaughter who could help her. She said she did have a friend with a computer that lived in the bay area but her friend didn't sew and it was just getting more and more complicated the longer we talked.
Then I got the brilliant idea to find the fabric and order it for her. She gave me her credit card and shipping info and within minutes we had the fabric she wanted on its way to her. The whole time I was entering her information on someone else's website she was thanking me and when we said our goodbyes she told me to have a great day.
I told her I already had.
Velma I know you aren't reading this but if you were I would thank you for calling Strawberry Patches and for letting me help you today. You blessed me more than you will ever know.
