Update on Brio/Furbrications

Brio/Furbrications has a new account over on FA guys!

But here's the good news, it's a page specifically for people to get in touch with her about lost commissions and communication.

She's having people send her notes and e-mails and getting everything straightened out.

She told me, personally over the phone, that she's going to do badges digitally because she's been having trouble with the mailing system and that she's currently working on all owed fursuits, including the one she's doing for me. She's also selling some personal things soon to issue refunds to people she owes them to.

*crosses fingers* Get in touch with her please if she owes you something! But, please, don't be all rude about it, that scares her I think. I think she could use a little encouragement with all the work she has ahead of her.

Weren't you once part of that company? for some reason I have always associated the Furbrications name with you.

^This. I thought you, onai_wolfwind, was and/or owned Furbrications

Brio owns Furbrication, not me. I am just a friend of hers.

There was no "company". We did share a workshop for a while though, so the same work space. We did col-lab on 2 suits together, so our name got put out together a bit. I moved like 4 months ago, so we split up, and that's when she went downhill. Apparently I was keeping her motivated and going, and when I left she just stopped. I had nothing to do with any commissions she had, except that we worked in the same area together. :3

Onai and Brio used to work together on fursuits, but Onai moved to a new location so they split up what they had. They haven't been working together for around 3 or 4 months now.

Late to the party but really, this;

>She's having people send her notes and e-mails and getting everything straightened out.<

should be the other way around. Making a new account and then expecting customers to post there regarding their own commissions is really bad business. If anything, it's a tactic to shake off customers who don't happen to stumble across this AB post or her new account. If she was in anyway professional, she'd be contacting her customers because she would have their contact information. Heck, she didn't even post this here, you did and you apparently aren't her business partner anymore.

>She's also selling some personal things soon to issue refunds <

I should just make a cat macro of this. Why did she spend the money before a product was given to the customer? Also bad business.

>don't be all rude about it, that scares her I think. I think she could use a little encouragement <

Actually, this post compounds the fact that no one should buy from her. Thanks for posting an update!

Supposedly her old account got hacked and she can't sign in to the FA or e-mail any more. I even tried, and couldn't get it, so somehow the password did get changed.

She did leave a shout on the Furbrications front page for people to see.

Also, I agree, she should go find her commissioners and let them know of progress and updates, but honestly, I'm not even sure if she made a list of the badges she owes people. I know she did at first, but I'm unaware of anything beyond when I was working with her.

No, she is not good at prioritizing or organizing anything. Like I said, she did fine when I was around, because she just copied me in documenting everything, and doing it in order. I dunno what happened to her. I rarely hear from her.

Onai, I am still trying to contact you about my fursuit head. It has been almost 6 months since I commissioned my head, and I have still received no progress pictures or even notes on progress. Last you told me over the phone was that it was done but you just needed to put eyes on it. I am contacting you this way because it seems you have not received any of the private messages sent to you, and you have not responded to any of my phone calls. I want to send you the last 50 bucks, and I need an address to send it to.Let's get this done please, I don't want to have to post something about you on here, because you have been reliable to Tom and I in the past.

Oh this is Chew Fox then? Didn't know that. My phone hasn't been working lately, so it's not reliable.

I haven't seen you on FA on your Oliver_Spot account at all, and you never read the last note I sent to it. How can I contact you easily and efficiently? Do you have an e-mail address I can use? It's a bit hard to get in contact with you.
Sep. 14th, 2010 01:10 am (UTC)
yeah, you can message me at chew_fox@bellsouth.net , thanks for getting back to me.
