About

Unplanned for. And well planned.

In 2016 my sister retired from 40+ years in banking to spend time with the grandkids and - finally - have time to return to her love of sewing. I'd retired two years earlier. She bought an industrial sewing machine, found the Diva and NCW wallet patterns, and quickly became hooked on making wallets and bags and attending local craft and artisan shows. She got darn good at it, and her business - TTLG Creations (and now on Etsy as TTLGGallery) - has flourished since.

But the cost of the wallet parts she needed was nuts, and as a grandmother of six found the time needed to procure, test, evaluate and order frames and other hardware was taking a good bite out of the time she did have free to sew. So, in 2017, I started Luxcrafter with the sole purpose of sourcing a narrow range of parts for her so that she could concentrate on sewing. As the quality I was able to secure was so much better than either I or she had seen elsewhere, I decided to open my business to supply quality hardware to other artisans at reasonable prices.

Frequently asked questions
SHIPPING FAQ :: Processing time

Barring unforeseen problems I will ship your order within one business day. Orders placed on Fridays may be taken to the post office over the weekend, but won't move from there until Monday.

SHIPPING :: CANADA

When you're a hammer everything really does look like a nail.

Etsy's calculated shipping is accurate for parcels when shipping frames or large part orders, but excessive for small orders like a few zipper pulls or a couple of packs of rivets. The cheapest boxed shipment in Canada is $16.48; small orders in a bubble envelope cost about $3. Unfortunately, Etsy provides no way to use calculated parcel shipping for large orders yet apply regular mail rates to a small order. (I always ship frames in a box.)

So, if you order a few non-frame items, please complete the checkout process with the shipping charge that Etsy shows and I will promptly refund any overage with an explanation of the final shipping cost. Shop here with confidence.

SHIPPING :: USA

USPS requires any non-document item to be shipped with a customs declaration, which means I cannot send small items letter mail. For parcels, Canada Post provides the following guide to shipping time to the USA:

★ Small Packet™ - USA Air : 5-8 business days
(least expensive for part orders in bubble envelopes or a small box)
★ Tracked Packet™ - USA : 4-7 business days
★ Expedited Parcel USA : 3-5 business days
(either used for frame or part orders over 1kg total)
★ Xpresspost USA : 3 business days guaranteed

Those outside major areas may find it takes add a tad longer than the standard to receive the order. And any parcel sent between countries could be subject to delays at customs that are beyond either of our control.

Returns and Exchanges

If your shipment arrives with apparent damage from shipping make a claim with your local delivery service (e.g., Canada Post, USPS etc.). Be sure to document with photos before opening. Luxcrafter will not be responsible for damage that was caused by delivery services.

I inspect every item before shipping to ensure your order is in pristine condition. That said, I have a no hassle return policy:

★ If I sent you a damaged item, contact me within 3 days of receipt with photos
★ If you haven't used it I will be happy to refund the cost of the item or replace the defective item, as we agree upon
★ I may request you return the damaged item to me for inspection if I find the nature of the damage peculiar.
★ Shipping is not refunded.
