For example, when the Chicago Lyric Opera needed fabric overnight with early morning delivery -- we made it happen. We still aren't quite sure what the fabric emergency was, but it seems likely that a set piece or costume had gotten mussed beyond usability. So, we sent several yards and they arrived first thing the next morning.
Likewise, when a crafter recently asked to hold her order since she would be out of town, we just marked the calendar and sent it with the timing of her return in mind.
