"Dear Arts and Designs,

Thank you so very much for getting my shipment of the set of 4 ballet prints to me as soon as possible! I ordered them on Sunday, Dec. 13th and they were in the mail by the 14th just like (Jim)? Had told me! Thank you so very much! I am also so very glad I did not order from another company whose webpage had letters from previous clients with disappointing shipping dates.

I was also very impressed by a prompt phone call from the gentleman at the store when I left a message. Again, thank you so much! You can add me to the list of satisfied customers using your company!:)

Happily Stitching!"
