Quality handmade craft items and supplies

Hi! My name is Donna and The Spotted Hook is my little home away from home on the internet. When not working, I'm a mum to 2 rather energetic children and help my husband renovate houses (or keep him sane during his Masters study - whichever part of life we may be in). Some days though, I'd rather just curl up with a good book and cuddle with my cat, Polly.

Crochet is a hobby of mine, but my fingers would get sore from using the thin hooks so at the request of a friend, back in 2011 I started making the handles from polymer clay. Of course, they had to be fun and colourful, and what's more fun than polka dots?

And so The Spotted Hook came about.

I take great delight in all things handmade and each of my special little hooks are lovingly crafted in my home studio in Brisbane, Australia. I believe that even the supplies you use to create pieces of handmade art should be beautiful themselves. What better feeling is there than to create a thing of beauty with something that is beautiful?

I am constantly growing and developing as a person and so it is with The Spotted Hook. The aim is to bring you beautiful and quality craft supplies and items that you will love to work with and will make you smile.

    Hi! I'm Donna :) I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband, two crazy kids, and one very crazy kitten. I started making and selling my polka dot crochet hooks back in 2011 and now it's pretty much my full-time job. Which is pretty cool.

Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with your purchase, please return the item within 14 days of receiving it in original condition, and I will refund you the purchase price.
I will have to ask that you be responsible for postage and handling charges of the returned item.
Payment is accepted through PayPal for International and Domestic orders.

Payment should be made within 2 days of the order. If payment is not received within this time frame I will cancel the order.
Ready-to-ship items will be posted within 3 business days of receiving payment. Please not that my local postal system does not operate on weekends.

For Made-to-order products, please allow one (1) week for your chosen product to be made before being posted.

Also, for Made-to-order items, a note must be left regarding the type of handle you would like. If you do not leave a note and I cannot contact you (via Etsy message and email) within 4 days, I will have to refund you and cancel the order as I do not wish to make you something you can't use :)

For International customers, I ship from Australia. It can take up to 2-6 weeks for packages to arrive. Although those sent to the US generally arrive in about a week.

If your parcel doesn't arrive within that time frame, please let me know and I will do my best to rectify the situation.

Also, please be aware of your country's customs regulations. In the UK in particular, more than one crochet hook per order will put you over the £15 customs & VAT limit depending on the current exchange rate.

If you are concerned about your country's customs laws, please investigate before purchase. If a package comes back to me from customs in the original condition, I will of course refund your money.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each item is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Due to the handmade nature of the items, there may be small imperfections. Hopefully you will see this, as I do, as part of the unique personality of the item.
