    I talked with you the last day of the quilt show and purchased one of your rulers for what I swore was advertised on your sign as $10. Yet my receipt showed $18. That’s quite a bit of a difference in price. Can you please contact me?

    • Vanessa Vargas Wilson

      Hi Shelly,

      The sign said $18 (sales tax included). The only thing advertised for $10 at our booth were the Crafty Gemini mugs. If you look in my online shop my rulers are pried at $16.95. With the FL sales tax added the total is $18.05. So we discounted the $0.05 to make the money handling easier for everyone and I will cover that part of the sales tax when I pay it. Thanks.

    Had a great time at the AQS Show in Daytona. It was a pleasure meeting you! Loved all the quilts you had displayed at your booth. It was a great inspiration! Can’t wait to start using the 10 inch slicer that I purchased.

    • Shelly Roberts

      Yep, it was my mistake. I admit it. I was long past exhausted. And the ruler is worth it no matter what. So looking forward to using it!! Now if I can just find my sewing table from wherevmy familybtook over while I was gone!! You just keep on coming up with these cool new things for us old farts to learn from!
