So glad you stopped by. If I could pick one thing to tell you about myself or my shop, it would be about my faith. What does faith have to do with my shop? Everything. I have faith that this Coronavirus will disappear. I have faith that my shop will surivive this pandemic. I have faith in Jesus Christ. Do you feel like you know me just a little now? You may not know me the way you know your family, but now you do know the most important thing about me. I'm a believer.

Now about my products. I use quality products in my shop You'll find Comfort Colors, Bella-Canvas, Next Level, Charles River, Viv & Lou, and Port Authority. We're constantly adding new items, but the same time, we're keeping it small. We want you to know that you're supporting a small business, a family operated business and a business that has been blessed. Yes, we offer a few big names, but when the rubber meets the road, we're small. Each item is scrutinized (is that even spelled right?) before it leaves our shop. Each item is double checked for accuracy, and each item is loved!

Take care and keep your family safe.

Stitchings By Ellen

THEN: Stitchings By Ellen started as a small in-home business. Everything that comes out of my studio is custom made for you. My goal is to keep my business small but flourishing. Stitchings By Ellen provides a creative outlet for me and my children. Often while I'm working in my studio, my girls (ages 10 and 12) are sitting beside me working on a project of their own. Both girls love to sew and we often make things together. However, it's after they go to bed that this momma kicks it in to high gear!! I make custom headbands, outdoor flags, baby gifts and a few other things All my items can be monogrammed or embroidered. Want something special for a special someone?

NOW: Wow! My shop has grown. You can still hear the hum of music in the background along with my embroidery machines.
Nothing's quit here! My girls are now 13 and 15 years old. My selection of products have grown too! I now carry backpacks, lunch boxes, pencil pouches, lanyards, clutches, purses, casserole carriers (all kinds), sandals, beach towels and more. Plus, I still have the same golden items listed above. I can't wait to watch this shop grow. Do I still monogram or embroider? Oh you betcha! It's growing strong! And....thank you for helping small businesses like mine thrive!

Shop policies

Last updated on July 22, 2020
Thank you so very, very much for visiting Stitchings by Ellen. Please come back and visit often. Also please read my shop policies before purchasing. I think you'll be pleased with your purchase!!!

One gentle reminder....Please be sure to confirm your street address.

About the Charles River Jackets - By luck, we may have your exact size and color, but the majority of the time, we order your jacket as needed. Even still we usually have a turn-around on these jackets within 2 weeks.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I stand by our work. I am willing to exchange monogrammed/embroidered items only if it is a mistake on the behalf of our shop. PLEASE follow the instructions on the listing when giving us your monogram. We do not refund, exchange or allow returns for monogrammed items due to the nature of our business unless it is a shop mistake. If the mistake is ours please contact me via a Convo first and send the item back to me in the original condition within 7 days of receiving it.

Please be sure to order the correct size. If you order the wrong size, please send back the original size (this is only for items that have not been monogrammed or embroidered - those are not returnable or exchanged) within 7 business days. You are responsible for return shipping to us and the shipping back to you.

When you return the item, please consider purchasing insurance just in case. I'm not responsible if it gets lost in the mail. It's very rare, but accidents happen.

-----
Not about returns or exchanges but important info...

We often have questions for you. Sometimes our lives are so crazy, it's easy to forget to tell us what color thread, the actual monogram, or other pertinent information. To speed up the delivery of your order, please consider leaving a cell phone number where we can text or if necessary call you. Not being able to get answers to those questions, can significantly delay your order. Nobody wants that, right?

Lastly, we do our best to ship your items as quickly as humanly possible. I know I get excited when I order something and want it quickly. I watch for UPS or FedEx deliveries with anticipation and excitement. Most orders (not all by any means) are shipped out 3 business days after you place your initial order (with all information - not having information will delay your order). However, there are times that we need to order a shirt if we don't have it in your size or color. In such case, your order will not be shipped in 3 business days. If this happens, we work as quick as humanly possible to have your shirt shipped within 14 business days.

Please know with Covid-19, shipping is slower than usual. This may impact you in 2 ways. 1) we get our shipments a little slower and 2) your shipments arrive a little slower. Hopefully, Covid won't be here forever and we can element the slower shipping!

Again, I know I mentioned this above but feel it's important to mention again. Please be sure to provide all information needed. We need thread colors, monograms (in the format requested), fonts, sizes, etc. Not having this information will signficantly slow down delivery date of your purchase and nobody wants that, right?
Payment
Payments are accepted through PayPal. Please make sure you make a payment within 3 days of the purchase. After 3 days, you will receive a reminder from me via email and Convo. All the non-paid transactions with 7 days of the purchase will be canceled. For purchases over $50, we wait until the payment has been deposited into our account before starting work on your project. This usually takes 1 -2 business days. Please know that once the payment has cleared, we work extra quick to make sure you get your item(s) as soon as humanly possible.

Don't have a PayPal account? Don't worry. You can still purchase with your credit cards via PayPal. Upon checkout, please choose "Pay With PayPal" even if you don't have a PayPal account. On the page you are supposed to provide your PayPal info., the other option to make a payment without a PayPal account will be given.
Shipping
WE BEG YOU TO DOUBLE-CHECK YOUR ETSY ADDRESS. If you've moved and not changed or updated your Etsy address, guess where your package might be.... We no way of knowing your new address or even that you moved. Please, please check our address.

Shipping* SHIPPING ADDRESS

* US SHIPPING
I ship via USPS first class mail with Delivery Confirmation. Most of my items are made to order. Please allow 3 to 6 business days for handling and shipping after the payment and 3-10 business days for delivery for domestic orders. If you want to purchase an upgraded shipping (6$ for Priority Mail)or insurance, please let me know and wait. I will send you the modified invoice.
INSURANCE is encouraged. However, any domestic(US) orders more than $ 100 will be insured by me.


* INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
