Leah from Sewbox.co.uk, a UK fabric shop had the following comments and questions on P+P in her shop:
Hi, as a shop owner these comments are very useful... I am especially interested in the comments on postage. I offer a flat rate postage of £2.50, largely because doing postage by weight / dimension is extremely difficult - I sell patterns and buttons and other items as well as fabrics, so it is extremely hard to get the system to estimate the cost.
One thing I would be interested in is how people like to get samples -- do you mind paying a postage charge of £2.50 to receive samples? Do you like to order them piece by piece or would you prefer to receive a swatch of the complete range, for a small nominal cost? Any feedback would be really appreciated! Happy sewing everyone...
