Most of the praises for packages arriving quickly should be addressed to the Postal Services. We process orders as soon as we can, usually within 24-48 hours at most. Then most packages get into the Postal Service system, a few into the UPS system. Most arrive quickly, efficiently, and at amazingly low prices considering the door to door service... Keep in mind that occasionally a package gets way laid along the way and goes across the country twice before getting re-routed to the proper address, or internationally, it sits at customs... Extremely rarely a package gets lost altogether.
Oh Marion, these are so cute, hate to use that phrase but they are. Never have seen the silk offered in such tiny a size. Love, love them. If you ever carry the 20 m size again, please let me know. Everything arrived fast, safe & package beautifully.
Thank you. Sincerely, Mary from Madison, Wisconsin
I am glad you like the mini-cards. They were made by Kanagawa for their trade shows. They are normally not for sale other than directly at the trade shows in Japan. I do carry the 20 m cards HERE. All the colors are in stock. Thank you! - Marion
Missing Item in Order
June 22, 2021 - Dear Marion,
My order was missing one 10g pack of the turquoise trail beads. 2 were on the order, and only one was delivered.
I have to compliment you on your kits, products and service. I love your site and everything I’ve ordered. The CLon bead thread is my new favorite bead thread.
With that- I will be placing an order for more clon bead thread, so maybe when you fill that order you could just send me the missing turquoise trail packet? I’m likely going to order more if that mix as well- it is sooo pretty. I’ll try to put the order in today.
Thank you very much, Lisa from River Vale, New Jersey
Unfortunately, it happens.We all make mistakes. I have learned to be more patient with myself when it happens and offer several options on the best way to fix the problem as soon as I am informed of a discrepency. In this instance we just added the missing item to the next order.
Just finished using the gold halos with jade beads, made a bracelet!
Thank you so much for the awesome beads! - Shawna from Walnut Creek, California
I love the simplicity of this bracelet mounted of an elastic cord. All you see is the jade beads framed by the 14k gold plated bead halos. -Marion
More about the C-lon Sample Card
I just received my order and wanted to say a big Thank You for including the samples of the cord with the business card!
I just started doing loom beading, peyote and Kumihimo and was trying to figure out the difference in the cord sizes. I’m a visual learner so this was perfect timing! Thank you - I will be ordering again in the near future!

Hi Marion, Thank you. I received my shipment and have already replaced the buttons on my blouse. It looks perfect now. Have a blessed day. From Lourdes, Oakland, California
I do sell buttons for jewelry making... Of course they can also be for buttons for shirts and coats. Have fun and update your clother with amazing button designs! - Marion
Dear Marion, Thank you so much for the order, especially for the very handy sample of the different sizes of C-Lon. I am new to beading, and this sample will save me a lot of time and money, from Sonja, Minnessota
We try to send a sample card with each order of C-Lon Bead Cord. There is nothing better than to have a sample of all the 4 cord sizes on hand to choose the best size for your next project. We have been doing this for years, and even though it creates extra work, we seem to continually run out of prepared card samples and have to make more.
Giving my customers and collegues, the very best info and service has always been goal. Adding this card represents exactly the kind of service I am aiming for. - Marion
September 7, 2020 - A week or so ago I purchased the instructions for the Far Niente multi strand bracelet.
I made it with some waxed cord I got at the craft store. The instructions using You Tube were ingenious and so easy to follow. I ordered more C-Lon 400.
Can’t wait to try it with “the good stuff.” - Tina from Albuquerque, New Mexico
Thank you, I am sure you will love it. I much prefer C-Lon Tex 400 over waxed polyester cord for Pura Vida type bracelets. The wax on the polyester cord is very allergenic to lots of people, and it is not necessary for the bracelet... - Marion
Occasionally things do not go as planned... and a customer does not get all the items they ordered...
August 24, 2020 - I received the missing item from my order today. Thank you for correcting my order so promptly.
Thank you for the unexpected gift of the package of clamps you sent, I certainly can use them. Very kind of you to send them. I also appreciate all the information & photos of colors on your blog & website. Have yourself a good day! - Arleen from Fremont, NH
July 27, 2020 - Hi Marion, Thank you so much for your excellent customer service. My order arrived two days earlier than the estimated delivery date. Awesome! Can't wait to get started on my project. Will definitely order again. Regards, Nikki from Sebastopol California
As to order speed, we ship as soon as possible, then it is up to the US Postal Services or UPS. Both services are out standing!
July 8, 2020 - Your instructions are so detailed and wonderfully illustrated or accompanied by photos which makes the process of learning a new technique so much nicer.
Thanks again. - Gina from Vacaville, California
I try to write the very best instructions as possible so they will work for remote learning... and if you have trouble with them, let me know, I may be able to improve on them or I will meet one on one on Zoom or Facetime. - Marion
May 13, 2020 - Hi Marion, Yes, received and perfect for what I wanted, thank you! I even made a handy dispenser for them! - - Daniel from Broomall, Pennsylvania
Wow, gorgeous! - Marion
Thanks! No problem to share, if you happen to be putting it on instagram, we are @crebbcreativeco. It’s made of oak, copper pipe and natural leather. Cheers! - Daniel from Broomall, Pennsylvania
May 7, 2020 - I received my order from you today and I am delighted with everything! But more than anything, I wanted to thank you for processing and sending my order so quickly! It’s a pleasure doing business with you and I will continue to do so in the future.
Sincerely, - Vicki from Madison, Wisconsin
August 22, 2019 - Hi! Just wanted to send you a photo of some of my recent projects. Thank you so much for your beautiful cord. You are a blessing!- Holly from El Paso, Illinois
Gorgeous, can I post the photo in my customer's comment? Tatting all done with C-Lon Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex135, right? - Marion
Sure you can! Some that I tat are the slightly heavier weight cord, one up from fine. I think the redder one in this photo is that. But yes otherwise the 135 fine. - Holly from El Paso, Illinois
Oh, and here is my tip for the day: When you done tatting, consider blocking the piece. Pin the piece in place on a board covered with clear plastic and then just rub it with isopropyl alcohol. I use a lint free dusting cloth. And let it dry. The piece will be a bit stiff, so just shake it, but now the bonded nylon has a new memory and will fall into place much better. The alcohol softens the bond and when it dries, it is clearer, more transparent so the color shines through better and it has a new memory as to cord position.
If you want to make a stiffer piece, add Fray Block to the alcohol. Try low amount of Fray Block per Alcohol like a 10% or 20% solution. Increase for more stiffness. Oops, that was 2 tips. Thank you! - Marion
Thank you so much for the tips! I will try that with the one I am working on now. - Holly from El Paso, Illinois
June 10, 2019 - Hi Marion! i just wanted to show you this.. it's all about storage! I found this at the local thrift store. Not sure what it is called but it is great for storing all my cords and threads in my workspace!
(you will see your own label if you look closely, lol..?- Deborah, Fremont, Ohio
I am always looking for storage solutions... - Marion
April 13, 2019 - Yes, my thread was delivered and it is perfect for my leather wrap bracelets. I have had a difficult time finding quality product in my local stores. Thank you for sending samples of the other sizes that you have as well, it’s very helpful. I will be making further purchases. - Sherri from Plattsburg, New York
