Frequently asked questions

I have allergies, is there anything I should know before ordering?

My home is 100% smoke free, but I do have 2 cats! I try my best to keep them away from my crafts and minimize the risk of allergies.

Can I buy your fabric designs by the yard to use in my own creations?

Unfortunately, I'm currently keeping my designs exclusive to my shop and my own products and am unable to sell my fabric by the yard. If that ever changes there will definitely be a big announcement :)

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale discounts and I also work with shops on consignment, if you are interested in carrying my items please get in touch!

Hey! We live nearby! Can I just come pick up my order to save the shipping?

Yes definitely! If you are in or near the Oakville, ON area, send me a convo before placing your order and we can work out a meet-up so that you can save your shipping cost! I usually do pick-ups at a Starbucks or Oakville GO station.

Some of my items are also available in store at Dove+Arrow (Oakville, ON), Studio 205 (Hamilton, ON), Muse Studio and Market (Milton, ON) and The Handmade Den (Guelph, ON), European Health Connection (Kanata, ON)

Care Instructions

Most of my fabric items do best by hand-washing with a teeny bit of detergent and laying flat to dry.

Infinity scarves can be machine-washed on cold and laid flat to dry.

If ironing is needed, low-medium setting and be sure to put a piece of cloth in between the item and the iron, this helps preserve the print.
Avoid ironing or heat with headbands and srunchies (heat is bad for the elastic inside).

Out of Stock?

If an item you want is showing out of stock, or not enough stock if you want multiples, please message me! I most likely have it in stock or am able to make more quickly, I probably just forgot to update the Etsy inventory, oops!

If you cannot find an item you saw at a convention, please message me as well! I most likely just haven't gotten around to creating a listing for it yet, but may have it ready to ship, or can definitely make it to order.
