Beading Patterns Customers Loved to the Max

5 Stars for Customer Reviews!

I must confess, I’m a bit of an Amazon addict. But in all fairness, it took me a while to get there.

I still remember my first few online purchases, during which I was excited at the prospect of being able to purchase something without leaving the house and without even needing to call a customer service line for assistance. But I also remember my nervousness: “Is this really safe? Will my credit card get hacked? Will I actually receive what I’ve ordered?”

My first Amazon purchases were, of course, books. (Some of you might not remember that Amazon carried only books at first!) Within a few years I’d branched out to music and gifts, then eventually clothing and even small furniture. And now I’m as likely to log on to my Amazon account and order household necessities as I am to brave the local Wal-Mart on a Saturday!

Customer Reviews for Beading Patterns to the Rescue

Part of my comfort with online shopping, especially on Amazon, comes from the customer review system. If I’m on the fence about a purchase, I just scroll down to the customer reviews–and voila, I instantly have dozens of other people’s opinions on the product I’m considering. I find customer reviews invaluable no matter what I’m buying. For example: The book blurb sounds great, but are the characters properly developed? Is the ending too predictable? Those ankle boots are a steal, but do they fit true to size? Do they squeeze in the toe area? And those wireless earbuds would make a great gift for one of the kids, but how well will they hold up to teen use/abuse? Reading a few reviews will help answer those questions, and more.

Similarly, customer reviews in the Interweave store can help you determine whether a video covers a particular technique, whether a webinar includes the specific information you’re looking for, or whether a pattern is easy to follow.

Here at Interweave, we appreciate all feedback–even negative feedback, which helps us improve our product offerings and tailor future content to what our customers want. But we especially love positive feedback (who doesn’t!) because it lets us know when we’ve hit the mark.

This project was a huge hit with a couple of customers.

I love the way it drapes.” Mary agrees, saying, “I’ve made this necklace in three color variations, so far. I’m sure I’ll do more. It makes up surprisingly quickly. The finished necklace drapes beautifully.”
