My Story

I started sewing when I was about 9 years old. I am in my 60's now so I've been at it a while now.

I am on Etsy mainly, and also have a small shop page for my custom baby quilts on my website. For Etsy, I make baby burp cloths, receiving blankets and small kitchen niche like bowl and plate cozies, hanging tea towels, reusable shopping bags and aprons. I also enjoy making fabric lanyards and fob wristlets.

I don't sew so much for profit; I sew pretty much everyday, because I am quite addicted to it, so I need an outlet for the things I like to produce. The funds I make from my sales help offset the fabric and notion costs. This in turn helps support my "habit". What a vicious circle eh?

I have a domain pointing to my Etsy shop that may be easier for folks to remember:
https://www.shopjudyshomehandicrafts.com This will take you straight to the front door of my Etsy shop.

On my website, I have a page for my portfolio and also for my small collection of vintage sewing machines. Mostly they are Singers, but I do have a couple other brands as well. I have information for locals and all my policy and shipping information there as well.

My website: https://www.judyshomehandicrafts.com I have turn-arounds in place to bring you back to Etsy when you are done looking around.

    I am a retiree who is quite addicted to sewing. I sew pretty much everyday so you can imagine how fast things pile up. So a few years ago I decided to open my online shop to sell some of the things I make.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All items are pre-washed prior to posting for sale. Unless otherwise specified, you can wash and dry your purchase as normal. Photos are taken prior to laundering.

Microwave products require special attention when washing:
If your microwave items require cleaning, it is best to wash with only a little detergent. DO NOT use fragrant enhancing bead additives or fabric softener. Just as importantly, DO NOT use dryer sheets when drying.

Custom and personalised orders

I will accept a custom order for a baby quilt or embroidery monogram on an item (if it is possible). Feel free to contact me to inquire further and I will see what I can do for you.

To view some of the specialty things that I've made, please visit my portfolio on my judyshomehandicrafts.com website. A deposit may be required at the time of the order. Custom items cannot be returned for any reason.

How do I use Etsy coupon codes?

Please visit the tutorial page at Etsy.com to find out how to apply coupon codes >> https://www.etsy.com/help/article/350

What are your return policies?

For returns and other policies such as shipping please see my Policy information here on Etsy.

VERY IMPORTANT!! - Cooking recommendations for microwavable products

It is highly recommended by the Pellon microwave batting manufacturer, that cooking times should be limited to 2 minute intervals. When longer cooking time is required, stop, turn the item then continue cooking. Not heeding to the manufacturer's warning, could result in overheating which could become a fire hazard.

Never leave the microwave unattended during cooking time.

All microwave items sold in my shop are made with 100% cotton fabric, microwave Pellon "Wrap n' Zap" batting, and 100% cotton thread. All items are pre-washed prior to sale.

Please see Care Instructions above regarding how to wash your microwave product.

What are your locations online and off?

- In addition to my little shop on Etsy.com, I have my items from Boutique Boss Babes consignment shop listed on my website. How to get there: https://www.judyshomehandicrafts.com

- Every year I am a vendor at local craft fairs each year.

- As of March 1st 2020, I am consigned at "Boutique Boss Babes" artisan shop which is located at 471 304th Street (Hwy 95A) in Marysville (Kimberley) B.C. Canada. There you can find many things I make.

- Curbside pickup is available at all local locations.

Why do you pre-wash everything?

Why do you pre-wash everything?

There are a few reasons really. Everything in the shop is washed prior to shipping. The process generally is to photograph each item, launder them then sell and ship. Unless otherwise specified, all items are machine washable and dryable. Right now, reason #1 is because of the Covid 19 virus. Reason #2 is so that when you the customer, wash your purchase for the first time, there are no surprises for you in regard to fabric shrinkage, stretching, general flaws or fading etc. Reason #3 is there are pets in my home and I do my level best to make sure each and every time is free of airborne particles and also lint.

What do you use for laundering? (Con't from Pre-washing topic)

I use Gain (Original) detergent & dryer sheets for laundering (no dryer sheets for microwave cozies). If you have allergies, I highly suggest that you re-launder your shipment with your own products prior to using the item(s).
