I wanted to give a couple that were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary a special gift. When I saw this afghan with the 50th Anniversary monogram, I knew it to be perfect. When I spoke to a representative to verify that the quick delivery time that was stated was not a error, that sold me as I was on a "crunch time". I also chose to pay a small extra charge to have them box the gift. Well, it came in the time stated, boxed beautifully, the quality of both the afghan and monogram were very nice and the monogram: 50th Anniversary, their names and this years date that I had chosen to be done in the metallic gold thread was so appropriate for their "Golden Anniversary". My friends that received the afghan and I were both thrilled with such a beautiful and usefull momento of their special anniversary. I highly recommend this company and their products and will definitely be ordering from the again!
