Thought of the month.
A supplier's important and valuable customers are the ones who see their supplier also as important and valuable to them.
Harrogate March 9th/10th
As many of you are aware we (along with all other fabric companies) are not currently allowed to be part of the above bridal fair. If you are interested in seeing any of the newest articles with a view to ordering for your new collections while you are at the show, Michael will be in Harrogate and if you would like to arrange to meet him in his nearby hotel then please either e-mail or phone us to arrange a convenient time.
Textile Forum March 18th/19th at the Music Rooms London.
We will be exhibiting there. Invitations with full details are available on request. If you are a previous visitor you should receive an automatic invite from the show organizers.
Visit our New Website in February and you could be in with a chance of winning £10.
I would like to thank all of you that have given us you comments to post onto our testimonial page. The winner for January was Emily Designs in Gloucestershire, and she will be receiving £20 off of her next order. We have always believed we were giving a good all round service, but it is still nice to have many of you confirm this. We have decided to continue our January promotion, therefore if you visit the testimonial
page during February, and forward any favourable comments about our service that you would like to share with other existing and potential customers via our testimonial page, you will be entered in a draw and the winner will receive £10 off their next order. Please make sure you have sent your comments by the end of February though. All customers who have already posted their comments will also be included in the February draw (except the January winner - sorry Emily!). We have also got quite a few special promotional offers that are available again this month, these are available by clicking here
and quoting the code word to be found on the new website.
We have written about this before, but this year it is even more important in helping us to have the right article here when you need it. This especially applies to embroidered/beaded articles where delivery to us can still be between 6/10 weeks. Therefore if you have orders that you are fairly sure you will need in a few months time, if you could keep us informed it would help us to assess the point at which we need to re-order. The most popular items we will still order as before, but slower selling articles will not be replaced until reaching a lower level.
Most customers should have a new January 2009 pricelist by now, if not it will be sent out with orders. . Please note that this function is only available to existing customers. As we mentioned last month there are going to have to be more increases throughout the year, as more things need replacing at ever poorer rates than existing stock. In the last week the pound has traded up to 3% below my lowest rate calculation in dollars and around 7% lower against the euro. Until now we have not needed to buy any currency at this rate, but if it stays there then prices will need to increase further. The good news is that we are not changing any prices this month.
