NIGHT IN THE WOODS
6 MORE WEEKS!
just like the groundhog saw his shadow
apparently when the cutter gave us our turnaround estimate - they used the first order to determine the turn time. being that this order was 6 times the size has (for obvious reasons) taken longer than the first order. they have apologized profusely and said that when they saw "reorder" assumed 100% exact, which it was not.
while i do see it as frustrating - i understand that no amount of anything is going to change how fast things can be done in an ethical manner. so thats the update.
again, if you are fed up and want a refund or need to update shipping or whatever - just let us know
and just like the last update, thank you for your patience.
THE FABRIC IS STILL AT THE CUTTERS!
...i know, its frustrating to us as well. this part is out of our hands and it iswaaay bothersome, but this is what happens when you take on such a task ... (work hard and apparently - apologize a lot). we have no real time update because anything we offer would be an estimate on something that is out of our hands. i do promise that when we hear they hit the loading docks, you will be like the 5th or 8th to know.
PROGRESS REPORT on the rerun of mae's shirt...
first off - thank you for ordering, thank you for your patience, thank you for supporting the fact that these shirts are being produced from scratch (the fabric was spun for this specifically) and only because you wanted one. for real, i can't believe the support we got BOTH TIMES to do these - so thank you.
the steps in producing Mae's shirt start w sourcing the fabric for the sleeves, the body, and the trim. from there its dyed to match our color specs and then each other. after that, everything is shipped to the cutter who cuts everything down to match the patterns we created. once cut it all goes into sewing...post sewing it arrives to us for sorting, inventory, and printing. once printed - we ship to you.
where are we right now - everything has arrived to the cutter. yes, we are behind schedule because ...honestly, thats just what happens. i even padded the best laid plans and we still hit some bumps.
if you want details : the original fabric we sourced for the first run was completely out for the 2nd run - so it had to be spun. literally - the fabric was created specifically for this order. that wasn't part of the initial discussion - so this fact set us back significantly. to be honest, the order was significantly larger than we had anticipated (thank you again) so we are doing what we can, with what we have, to get these to you as fast as possible BUT at the quality we require.
dying the fabric is a test in patience as well - however that was done to our approval and we are moving along.
so thats where we currently sit - at the cutters, being cut.
if you would like a refund because youve waited too long - just let me know and its done.
however, im pretty sure ... knowing who you are and what we are all doing here ... you just needed some info and are along for the ride.
because this is amazing.
thank you for your patience. apologies for the curveballs ... its not the troubles that arise, its how we deal with them.
i am doing my very best with multiple variables and we are progressing.
eternally - thank you,
