Cardigan History

The Cardigan family has made a name for themselves in the sweater industry

whereby they have designed sweaters for a variety of uses and for a wide target

audience ranging from toddlers to business professionals. Cassandra, whom

everyone calls Cassie, is the CEO of CARDWARE Inc., Camoni is the

spokesperson for the sweater line, and Candie models the lines in the

professional sphere. They often use their mother, Camille, as a business

consultant for input about various new ideas and marketing because she was

the manager and agent of her son’s glove company. Cora and Caley, Camille’s

two youngest daughters from her second failed marriage to Bo Jenkins, are co-

office managers of their headquarters located in Silkadonia.

Camille has developed a good network among those in the fashion industry,

especially the seamstresses who have been hired by well-known celebrities. One

day, Camille spoke with Sonya, the owner and Lead Seamstress for Shazam

Clothing Industries. Shazam is a leading manufacturer of unique limited edition

clothes in Silkadonia. Camille presented Sonya with her order to sew a limited

number (500) of hot pink and black machine knitted sweaters with a matching

knit hat. Each sweater was to have a number and Candie Cardigan’s signature on

a label sewn onto the bottom right side of the sweater. The hats would have the

same label with matching number to its sweater, but sewn on the right side of

the turned up hat cuff. Sonya agreed to make each sweater and hat pair for

$100. Camille’s plan was to sell each set for $300 thereby making a $200 profit

per set. While discussing the type of yarn to be used, Sonya’s cell phone rang.

Sonya pushed a piece of paper and a color palette towards Camille and

whispered “write the type of yarn you want used and exact dye lots” and I will

begin work on this right away. Camille did as requested, but forgot to give Sonya

the traditional 25 % down payment. The down payment has always been used to

purchase the materials.

Sonya completed production of all 500 sweaters in record time and has

presented Camille with an invoice for payment for the same. At the bottom of

the invoice, the words, “Payment Due Upon Receipt” were written. Camille

changed her mind about wanting the sweaters and hats, as she decided that the

items would not be as profitable as originally anticipated. Sonya now comes to

the law firm you work for, P. Strami, and Hammond, Attorneys at Law, and wants

to know if she has any recourse. Attorney Strami hands you the following

instructions and asks that you draft a memorandum to him incorporating your
