Anchorage, Alaska | 2,320 Sales

Announcement    May 28 update: I'm excited about the new forget-me-not fabric, now sewn up and in the shop, since the actual flowers are now blooming. I've received some additional new fabrics from my two Alaskan suppliers and will continue to add masks sewn from them to the shop.

I use patterns from www.craftpassion.com for the shaped masks. The women's mask is actually described as suitable for "women/teenagers." I definitely see several of my "women's" designs as suitable for teenage boys. The key is to measure the intended recipient's face and compare those measurements with those of the mask. Regarding the men's and women's sizes, these are designed for people of average size; if you have substantially more padding than average (or if you have a less-prominent nose), it is likely that you will be more comfortable in a rectangular-shaped mask, a few of which I've just added to the shop.

Feel free to contact me if there is a fabric that you'd like sewn up in a specific size or style

If you live in Anchorage and wish to pick up your order, I will refund your shipping costs--just message me.

If you order over $35 of merchandise, it ships free!

Sewing Masks

I've felt compelled to sew masks ever since they were first recommended. I donated over 200, am still donating, but am also putting up for sale to raise money for more supplies--especially fun Alaskan-theme fabrics.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 13, 2018
I dye only the type of high-quality yarn that I personally use for my knitting projects. I use commercial dyes for long-lasting brightness.
I love dreaming up and then dyeing new colorways. The reason I sell yarn is so that I don't have to knit up what I've dyed before I dye more! I also love providing knitters with yarn that they enjoy knitting.
Be advised that there is often some light/dark variation within a given color segment. If it is excessive, I will tell you in the description.
My home is cat-free, smoke-free, and perfume-free. I have a small dog.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be 100% satisfied and will do all I can to ensure that you are. I will happily exchange yarn or issue a refund if you request it. Please contact me if you have any concerns after you receive your yarn.
Payment
Payment is via Paypal. I expect payment to arrive within hours of the order, and of course before I ship. If payment does not come within 24 hours of the order, I will relist the item.
Shipping
The morning after I receive an order and payment, I ship the customer's item(s) via first-class U.S. mail, which is supposed to take 4 business days, but has taken anywhere from 3 days to a full week. I usually ask for delivery confirmation and can give you that number so you can track your package if you ask me. If it's a large order, I may include insurance at my own expense. If a package should get lost in the mail (which has not happened yet) and I haven't insured it, I will of course send you replacement yarn at my own expense.
