Just out of curiousity - how long do they generally take to deliver?

Thanks.

From personal experience, it always takes a long time but I'm in Canada
so I never know if it's them or customs. They always have come through
eventually though and if you send an email asking about your order, they
usually answer quite quickly.

I often receive orders in 3-4 days (NE Ohio--it was even faster when I
lived in central Iowa) if the items are in stock. They are very good
about communicating with customers if an item is backordered and give
reliable estimates for the delivery of those items. If you are
deparately in need of something, call and ask if it is in stock before
placing your order. The only problems I've had are they don't send out
a catalog with gift certificates and gift certificates cannot be
redeemed online.

I've really not found that to be the case. I ordered something I needed
for a deadline (because I'd heard wonderful things about them) and not
only did they not have it, they couldn't get it, and they didn't bother
to tell me about it until I called 4 weeks later.

My recent experience was a tad better, but I only used them again
because they had something no one else did. I avoid them if I can. I
like 1-2-3 Stitch.

I, too, have had very slow service from Nordic Needle. If I need
something odd or very quickly, I call Denise at Threadneedle Street in
Washington state. She's really great and very fast.

Answering my own question: I ordered last Monday and got it today -
eight days. OK service - in these days of ebay and lightning fast
service from most places, I would give it a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

I'll second that and will add that who ever answers the phone there is the
nicest, most helpful person! Even though I'm poorer, I always hang up with a
smile on my face!

You haven't got this quite right. "Confuscius he say rape
impossible. Women with skirt up runs faster than man with trousers down".
Also, "When rape is inevitable, lean back and relax".
