I am not happy at all

Wendy responded on Jun 24, 2016

Buyer purchased on impulse and never took time to read all instructions and information related to item carefully. Buyer also has a store on Etsy, so if there were any issues with my merchandise, as Etsy store owners we could have dealt with that and settled matter professionally. On June 15th buyer sent a Convo asking me how many independent quilt patterns were in a series? I sent her a response informing her there were 13 in that series. She later responded saying “Great, you will hear from me soon” within the next hour she purchased the Masai paper pattern and chose next day shipping. Pattern shipped next day. Buyer received the pattern on Monday the June 20th on time. I don't see where I went wrong here, had she READ the pattern instructions there would be no issues. Wendy Mamattah.

About

Wendy Mamattah. Her story.

Wendy Mamattah is owner of Braid and Stitch and a published award winning quilt and textile artist, journalist, writer/blogger and quilt pattern designer. Wendy is from Ghana in West Africa and has always loved working with fabrics. She recalls as a child at age five in primary school, she received prizes for needlework instead of English or Geography which made her realize that there was a part inside of her that loved to create.

Wendy's works and patterns have been featured internationally in American Quilter magazine and on the Quilt show With Alex and Ricky Tims. She has also been featured in E magazines such as Quiltposium and blogs, as well as in the Oregonian Home and Garden. Her works have also hang in galleries in the Pacific Northwest such as the La Selles Stewart Center which houses the Guistina Gallery at the Oregon State University, this is one of the largest in the pacific North West.

In 2015 Wendy has began to incorporate African inspired clothing into her BRAND LIST as she calls it, she goes, "Its the next big thing on my Vision Board" "We need to build an authentic African fashion hub right here in the Oregon with no limits! just saying"

Wendy's works continue to evolve in both subject matter and technique, recurring throughout in strong, clear color, texture, visual impact, and meticulous detail. She loves the colors of nature, those colors that can be imposed on the real world to see it in a new way.

Talk to Wendy, and she tells you her day starts with her creativity kicking right in, and then she just dances with fabric, she adds “I love that!” she passionately shares that Creativity in some form is inherent in every individual, and adds, “you just have to wake it up sometimes, there are lots of people who have let their creativity go to sleep and just cannot find a way to wake it up, and that is not good, since it lets the fire in you die while you are still alive”.

Wendy’s works in Silhouette applique depict a lot of Africa and dance. She also works in other mediums such as Impressionistic art also known in art quilting as the Confetti technique, the rest are painted abstract, Mosaic, and her stunning under water pieces. Wendy is open to create commissioned art quilts, specifically to fit a customer’s description and taste, each of her art works is a unique original piece.
