Welcome to Alora's Adorables!

❁ I have a heart full of gratitude for all the wonderful customers who have contributed to AlorasAdorables' success on Etsy! Serving so many beautifully talented artisans has been fun and getting to know what shoppers of vintage want in textiles has helped Aloras' evolve daily.
❁ I am a collector, supplier, quilter and enthusiast of vintage chenille and other vintage textiles, but I do not claim to be an expert. I am always open to learning if you have something to share.
❁ I most often do the actual work of AlorasAdorables myself ~ resourcing, designing and sewing. I also stock and supply high quality vintage chenille and other fabrics for quilters, sewers, and crafters.
❁ I especially enjoy working with vintage cotton chenille ~ it inspires memories of my mother and a gentler time in history. Chenille represents "home" ~ it invites cozy comfort, total relaxation, is adaptable to all decor and offers a romantic touch of "lived in", shabby cottage chic.
❁ I love to talk, teach and write and some of my listings contain whimsical, heartfelt, "flowery" descriptions that express my passion for chenille. I believe to those of us who love it, vintage chenille sells itself.
❁ I love projects that bring someone comfort ~ quilts for toddler beds, decorating baby's nursery, comforting the wheelchair bound and elderly, gift-giving or a pretty coverlet to toss over the arm of a favorite reading chair.
❁ Artistic expression is essential to nurturing my soul ~ music, sewing, quilting, painting, landscaping and gardening are among things that bring me joy.
❁ I never, ever get bored with sewing! When a project gets a little tedious I find yet another fabric that inspires me to finish the project I'm on so I can create something new ~ hence the saying… "so many fabrics, so little time"!
❁ Attention to little details is a hallmark of my heirloom creations. I believe my customers want handmade quilts of vintage chenille that reflect their uniqueness so I do not duplicate designs. Quality fabrics and skill in craftsmanship are paramount to me.
❁ I was born, raised and educated in California. As an adult I've lived in and traveled to many countries and the artful impressions made on my creativity from those cultural experiences are often interwoven into my designs. Whether walking through a forest, hiking a mountain or strolling a sandy shore, I deeply love nature and depend on it to clear my mind before designing and sewing.
❁ I've spent much of the last seven years battling cancer and am cancer free as I write this. Before that I was a typical type A personality, more rock than roll. Cancer has taught me how to go with the flow and just let life happen.
❁ <*)))>< My faith is primary in my life and my goal is to operate my business with Christian principles to the best of my ability, taking it one day at a time. Though I love vintage treasures, the first love in my life is Jesus Christ ~ I am thankful for the blessings of his grace, love and forgiveness of my many imperfections. Redemption through him is my greatest treasure ~ to know my sins and transgressions are completely forgiven and I can be a vessel for his love is a gift I could never have earned and for which I am eternally grateful ~ I give him all the glory.

Shop policies

- Custom orders for fabric squares are not accepted.
- Fabric sizes in a listing are the minimum size you will receive and in most cases fabrics are cut larger than dimensions listed.

- Please be sure to give your desired dimensions when placing a request. There are no returns for custom quilts.
- Special requests for upgrades and/or embellishment are not included in the base price quoted in the sample listings.
- All designs are AlorasAdorables intellectual property. No permission is given or implied for shop designs to be copied.
- Some vintage chenille is more expensive than others because they are hard-to-find, rare and quickly disappearing from the vintage market so some of the fabrics shown in previous custom orders may not be available.
- AlorasAdorables does not discount for multiple custom orders or sell wholesale.
- I only make one-of-a-kind quilts. Each quilt is designed specifically for the individual customer and will not be an exact duplicate of a sample custom designs. If there is a design you prefer from the samples, I will use it to guide me in making your quilt and may suggest ways to personalize your design.

- By making your down payment, you indicate agreement with the design plan as outlined in our communication record.
- All communication is to take place on Etsy in the form of convos (no telephone or e-mail) so that I have a written record of details of your purchase.
- Custom orders are booked 4-6 weeks in advance or by availability, often longer during holidays.
- I cut fabrics in your preferred color palette and send photos to you. If there are any changes to the arrangement of fabrics, please let me know within 24 hours so I can meet scheduling demands. If I don't hear anything in that time frame, I will sew the layout In photos. No changes can be made after this time.
- Cancellation after cutting fabrics or other construction has begun will forfeit all monies and supplies. Hours of labor have gone into preparation and the down payment may only cover part of the costs so no refunds, exchanges or credits for future services or products are given under any circumstance.

IMPORTANT: Certification and testing by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) are utilized in manufacturing but are prohibitively expensive for the individual quilter. No custom order quilt made by AlorasAdorables is certified by CPSIA. We are required by law to notify purchasers of this. You alone are responsible for how you choose to use this quilt and by purchasing and ordering, acknowledge agreement with these policies and release AlorasAdorables and owner(s) from any liability.
