This fabric has 7 yards available.
The arrow points to where you can find that info.
But a lot of people don’t order from this detailed screen.
So they order more and then don’t notice the little asteriks next to the item.
I have finally figured out a way to very clearly show that an item is backordered!
At times I feel so inadequate with my web skills.
And I also feel badly that things like this take me so long to work out….
But I have to remind myself that I am only one person
and I have come a long way.
And I feel dumb blogging about such things –
but these things consume hours of my time, so I’m just keepin’ it real.
PS. I will continue to allow you to back order items because usually I can get more in stock…but now you will know that the whole amount you ordered might not be in stock.
Here is another thing to consider….that 7 yards is really just a best guess based on the information I was given by the manufacturer. The manufactures do not always send 15 yards on the bolt….sometimes they are short and sometimes they are long. So in reality I may have 8 yards or 6 yards….or I might have 7 exactly.
And about the word “yards”…..I’m thinking of changing that to say a little something different that will work with non-fabric items as well. Right now it shows patterns and kits as being sold in yards….and that kinda drives me crazy. Not that it’s a long drive….
Back to the madness for me!
