Crafters Companion Subscription Box
I just received email that the Quilling Box is shipping early. I noticed that on my auto ship list the box I was expecting to ship and eagerly waiting for is gone (?) It was the subcription box that makes boxes (has acetate sheets) and some sort of multi layered cards. Are we going to get the other box? I was looking forward to making boxes for gifts for grandchildren’s birthdays next month.
Today I got another email saying that they had already shipped the CC QUILLING BOX to me even though there CSR said he had cancelled it to me on the phone on the 14th. So I called back in and explained the whole thing again to another CSR. She said the other guy had not put any notes about my call on the 14th. She did waive the shipping charges and will remove it from my vCard once i return it. She says it still shows that they will be shipping the other box on the 28th. Who knows what will get at this point. This is why i never usually sign up for these kit things. I want to know whats in something and have the option to opt out when its sonething i dont want. In this case ut was this quilling kit. Even though I opted out of receiving it there going to force me to take it anyway! ARGGGGGGG! Hope you have better luck with your issues with HSN.
Hers looks nice. The only problem I have the CC big Gemini is the plates warping. I’ve already had to replace my big plates on the largest Gemini once. And the new ones are starting to warp too. I just got the small portable one on Sept craft day. I’ve used it alot already and I’m not seeing the plates warping….yet. I like using the small one alot for die cuts, but still use big one for embossing folders. I don’t really need another die cutting machine, but wondering how Anna Griffin’s new Empress die cutting machine will hold up as far as how their plates will hold up. Her machine is alot bigger than the CC largest Gemini too. Oh well I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
I totally agree with you on that box 4. I don’t normally like to order a box subscription of something, because you never know what you are getting. But I just signed up last month when I saw they had a description of each shipment and I thought I could rely on that list. I’m retired now myself and I too am just starting doing cards. I scrapbook and do other crafts, but this is my first foray into card making. Do you follow AnnaGriffin?…watch her videos on YouTube? Today she showed the new electric die cutting machine that will be on HSN craft day in Oct. She usually shows videos to preview the next craft days products on HSN? I have already bought the CC Gemini (BIG ONE) and the newest baby one.
My daughter uses a Brother Scan and Cut for her business. She says it is a fabulous machine able to scan and cut almost everything she needs and greatly increases her ability to offer new professional items on her shop. I have an older Cricut and never did like it. Sorry Cricut it was expensive to use, used the cartridges.
I called yesterday, twice, two different issues with my auto-ship for this item. Rep did not know a lot, which certainly was not fair of HSN to do this to him and us. I can not believe I am this irritated about Box 4. But I am new to card making/ paper crafting and this was a huge disappointment. I sure hope that box 4 ships on Sept 28th otherwise I may be looking for a new way to spend my retirement time.
I just got off the phone with CS at HSN. It shows that the box #4 that we should be receiving month is slated to ship on 9/28/18. I told the guy that this didn’t make sense to get 2 subscription boxes in one month. He had no information…his notes just say that the quilling box was available earlier. By HSN switching the ship dates it did mess up my option to skip the quilling, and said I wanted to skip box 4 on the 28th. The CS Rep was able to fix this. He cancelled the quilling and changed the 28th’s Box 4 back to ship to me.
I’m still concerned about receiving the box 4 on the 28th, because they don’t normally ship 2 subscriptions in one month and October’s box shows aquamarkers. But the CSR guy had no further info. I hope the box you receive 1rts is the quilling box.
CC shouldn’t be with auto ship dates since people have the ability to opt out of certain shipments. It messes everything up. Let me know what kit you end up getting.
Today I received an email saying they were shipping the quilting kit too. Which didn’t make me too happy. This month we were suppose to receive the other kit you referenced. I also believe I saw a YouTube video of someone opening the kit to reveal what was inside.
I had chosen to skip the Quilling Kit, because I’m not interested in doing that on my subscription when I first signed up. So why am I receiving notice that it has shipped today? Who knows?
I went in to check my subscriptions on HSN and it doesnt show the box I should be getting.
I’m bummed too. Im wondering if CC ran out of them….if so they shouldn’t be just shipping the quilting kit without asking us if we had opted out of it.
I’m going to contact HSN and see what they say. Let me know what info you may of got.
