This is one of the most poorly written articles I've ever read on the Inet. Does this writer have any idea what commas are? The spelling is not too bad, but the grammer is absolutely atrocious. It's enough to make me not buy from fabric.com anymore.

LOL Well, Gail, spelling does count. But, I liked the red/orange comment; it made me feel like my choices are good and not fashion faux pas.
