Sold! 4 Times!!

Thank you Willy Wonky for being so quick on the purchase button! My AAQI quilt was sold quickly...then again..and again..and finally one more time! LOL

Here's a funny note explaining how that happened.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lori,

I think you just won some kind of record! Your quilt was purchased FOUR times! Let me explain. Our website isn't automated. We have to visit the website to pull of orders and when we do we manually take the buy button off (when the quilt is sold or when it is ordered and we put "sale pending"). It is possible, tho unlikely, that a second customer can therefore order the quilt before the web page is published. We pulled off the first order and processed it. The order was placed Tuesday. Our volunteer forgot to publish the page to make the changes visible. Somehow, later on Tuesday, 3 more people ordered your quilt! Still not sure how that happened and why those orders weren't visible to us when we processed orders today. Long story short, does it help to let your readers know that your quilts are available to purchase? ABSOLUTELY! That was the fastest $50 bucks the AAQI made this month!
Thank you for making your quilt and for blogging about it! Thank you A LOT!!
Ami :)

Thank you readers for trying to purchase my quilt! I think this means I need to get busy and make a few more. I sent an email to join to $1000 pledge. It looks like this last quilt sold puts me at $574.67 raised for this wonderful cause. 

Hit the AAQI link  and find another lovely quilt to purchase. You have hundreds to choose from!!

  25. LOL, Karen- the buyer is a guy, not a gal. Hee-hee! Can't believe it sold three more times after I bought it, and can't believe I was lucky enough to be faster than everyone else. The announcement was on Facebook for about 45 minutes before I saw it, so you all had a chance. :)
