    Default Ssslllooooooww to ship. Whyyyyyy

    I’m so frustrated. Part of an order I placed a month ago got canceled and never shipped. Now I placed an order last week for the bolt of white fabric. Got an email the same day saying it was shipped . Well according to the Fed Ex site it has yet to be picked up. That’s just crazy. They’d better not cancel that order. I placed it around 5 a.m. Sorry, ladies, I had to vent . Makes me rethink any orders

    I ordered the Snow DD on 12/12. It arrived today.

    I ordered the bolt of confetti Cotton on 12/14. The label was created on 12/15 at 4:45 but there's no indication that it has even left M*. Sigh, thank goodness I didn't need it this week.

    Maybe holiday shipping is that backed up.

    Noticed this re: a past Friday order - Mine really don't start "moving" until late Monday.
    M* Shipping label was created for a single pre-cut 11/23 in the morning. Picked up by FedEx that night.
    Arrived at FedEx location in OLATHE, KS at 11pm Friday night 11/23.

    AND HERE'S THE IRRITATING PART
    Departed FedEx location FEDEX SMARTPOST OLATHE, KS Monday , 11/26/2018 at 3:26 pm.

    So while most other companies get their orders out quickly (sometimes received in 3 days) my Friday FedEx order sat over the weekend and most of Monday.

    The 12/14 DD (10 yd bolt) made it to FedEx on Olathe KS at 11pm ... no movement notification since then.

    Fedex is very lax about updating their tracking information too

    I always cringe when I see Smart Post. You can add a couple days to delivery with that. I hate smart post.

    I would call the M* customer service. They are definitely sympathetic and compassionate. It seems something unusual may have happened to your package depending where you live. I once placed an order, and it had started moving, then it stayed somewhere in limbo. I thought it either got lost or fell off a truck somewhere. I called after 4 weeks. They re-shipped the order minus one item no longer available, and gave me some quilter's cash. It arrived in usual time about 10 days, as it has to go trough Customs.

    I ordered the DD bolt of fabric & other stuff on 14th. While it was processing for a few days, and I expected this as I had cut yardage, it was shipped yesterday. I know that I won't get this year, as it will go through customs, and Canada's postal strike has been backlogged with delivery of items. But who knows.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
