    Default Ben Tart

    Hey all

    Not sure if this is in the right thread.. But has anyone been able to get in touch with Ben Tart? Placed an order sometime ago and haven't been able to reach him.

    Regards

    Stay patient. He's long been difficult to reach. I've had more success from email than calling, but it depends on how much time he's taking in the dyepot or loom

    I also have an order placed with Ben Tart, and after reading this thread sent him an email for an order update last night. I placed the order three weeks ago for an in-stock jacket blank to be finished. On receiving my order he emailed it would go out in 2 weeks. It's been 3 weeks. Today he replied to last night's email inquiry -today's Wednesday - that my order should be out his door by next Monday. He replied within 18 hours and if it takes 4 weeks instead of 2 when a whole lot of us are getting new items for the summer 150's, I'm OK with that. I'm glad his business is keeping him hopping, and I'm patting myself on the back for actually ordering the jacket in timely fashion for a change.

    Recently, I placed an order for brown jean cloth to use as canteen covers. It came in about a week along with
    some extra scraps (of different colors) to use for more covers. Like most craftsmen in the hobby, his products are
    worth the wait. I can't imagine using any other vegetable dyed cloth.

    I try to do most of my ordering toward the end of summer or after the Christmas rush.

    I know Ben is doing a large order of Amzi Williamson jackets that he has to have done before Gettysburg. He was at Latta Plantation weekend before last and I'm pretty sure he said he was going to be at Chancellorsville. I know he is going to both Gettysburgs. Anyway, the point is that he is very busy, but just be patient. You're in good hands.
