Thank you for your fast turnaround time, fast responses and patiently discussing all of the details that go along with Roman shades. We will be ordering more in the very near future!

About

for the love of sewing

I grew up watching my grandmother sew on her antique Singer in her basement. The musty smell of it, a giant glass jar of buttons, homemade biscuits and jelly, and the feeling of being with her will be permanently etched in my memory. She used to own an alterations shop named "Ila's needlecraft", but that was before i knew her. I don't recall being instructed by her neccessarily, but being in awe of her gift, and therefore having an inherent desire to do the same thing. My mother helped me grow in my skill as a young child and I made numerous doll clothes and matching clothes for my sister and I. I achieved a great sense of satisfaction when i actually sold some doll clothes I made in a craft store, before i was old enough to have a real job. I was odd for my generation. None of my friends made clothes. It was such a part of me, like breathing. . .

I've created custom draperies and clothes for people for the last decade, as well as doing many alterations. I've become more courageous taking on new challenges over the years, including wedding dresses, 12 ft long draperies, and roman shades. My etsy shop has become busier and busier, and my customers refer other customers which is a great honor.

I enjoy nothing more than sending a completed piece to someone I've never met and receiving an ecstatic email from them with a photo expressing their appreciation. I owe this joy to my grandmother and mother; they passed on an heirloom worth more to me than pearls or gold.

Payment
I will not start production of your custom item until I receive payment and the details of your custom order request. These will be confirmed via conversation and I will create a custom listing for you with these details. I can cancel an order after payment as long as i have not begun production.
Shipping
I insure shipments through UPS and will send a tracking number upon shipping confirmation. Once payment is recieved a finished product can be shipped usually within two weeks. Custom printed fabric for tea towel orders takes an additional 10 days.
Refunds and Exchanges
For custom orders there are no refunds or returns, but I will work with you to make sure you are pleased. Please measure carefully. If you measure incorrectly I can often adjust an item for free, but you must pay for shipping to and from. Roman shades require precise measurement to produce. Since each one is unique and created to fit your window I am unable to adjust the size after it is made.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can include drapery hooks per request for custom drapery orders.
