Ive on many occassions watched Tammy package, serve, ship, create, anything to do with many yarn products and she’s the only one I would purchase from no matter the cost. Tammy treats all her customers with respect no matter in person or online no matter how little or great they spend, I look forward to future ordering from L’Artisant!!!!
