What customers make with our fabrics: Shirts, pillows & dresses for dolls

It’s time again for a short edition of “what customers make with our fabrics”. In the last weeks our French customer Little Clary showed us her cool UK flag shirt, she sewed using one of our Riley Blake fabrics. Our Spanish customer Momita reminded us of her tutorial for sewing garments with a funny ostriches using Robert Kaufman fabric and from Germany we received pictures of bright owl pillows for a children’s hospital. Another French customer Le Blog de Claire showed us her sewed collection of mini dresses for cute animal dolls, using Elizabeth’s studio fabric and fabrics from Japan.

Bye Bye Alibaba!

We have been a Gold supplier on Alibaba.com for 2 years now and we decided to stop promoting our wholesale business there. We are just too busy with our existing customers and our retail shop and don’t have the time anymore to accept any new wholesale customers. Therefore, we decided to shut down our Alibaba Gold supplier account and focus on our online shop instead. I am sure we will not regret this decision.

Very nice letter from a customer

Today we received a very nice, funny & cute letter from one of our customers in our mailbox (our “real” mailbox, not our email-inbox). She sent us a handwritten letter to tell us how much she loves our shop and to thanks us for our hard word. How cute is that? I was smiling the whole time while reading this letter. This is just awesome! I would have never expected such letter from a customer. Thank you very much! We love you guys!!!

Magazine publishes our hairclips

I got an enquiry from a German magazine editor because they want to publish our cherry hairclips in their magazine. The magazine is a customer magazine for bank customers. Funnily, we are customers with that German bank too 😉 What a coincidence! We will get a copy of the magazine once it is printed. Here are the 2 pictures they got from us:

Customer from France visiting us

Today a very good customer from France visited us at our new office. They placed a few orders already and wanted to finally meet in person and discuss future collaborations with us. I also showed them some items from our showroom and they took them with them to show to their customers. My customer is a buyer for big companies like Carrefour in France, therefore this business opportunity is really great for us and them as well. I am really looking forward to keep working together with them in the future.

250th order

We got our 250th order in our online shop www.modes4u.com yesterday. The 250th order is from a customer in Seattle, USA. Thank you so much for all your support and trust!

It took only 34 days to get to the 250th order from the 200th order. The last 50 orders took 42 days. We are increasing our orders constantly, I am super happy about that. When will we hit the 300 order – mark? I guess in around 30 days.
