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 ~ for me 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 take the liberty to express this passion in my listings because I have a love 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

Last updated on November 9, 2016


Shopping for fabric should be fun and I want your shopping experience to be one of joy and relaxation. Your satisfaction with your purchase is important and I do all I can to fully disclose the vintage condition of all fabrics listed to avoid disappointing you.

Part of the charm of repurposed vintage is each piece has a history and you can expect the shop's gently used fabrics to reflect this. All vintage fabrics in AlorasAdorables are gently used unless posted "new old stock".

Please take the time to read all policies. You can shop 24/7, but I must leave the shop to shop for replacement stock and to complete custom orders two days a week. I am off on weekends for family time. I check email intermittantly and will get back to you as soon as possible. I strive to ship orders within 4 business days.

- If you do not see the option for Direct checkout on your checkout page it is because you must convo the store before your purchase so that option can be turned on for you to use in your checkout page.

~ AlorasAdorables mails orders by the "ship by" date on your receipt, in some circumstances this date may change. Please be sure your account has the correct shipping address information.

~ If insurance is not required for your purchase but you want to add it to your invoice, please let me know before your purchase otherwise you will have to be invoiced separately for insurance. I'm sorry but I can't accept responsibility for loss or damage to any purchase. The post office examines all packages prior to delivery and if the package is damaged they will make a note of the damage.
Filing and collecting on a insured purchase claim does not involve the shop and is between the customer and the U.S. Post Office but if I can help in any way, please let me know. Be sure to keep all packaging for postal inspection, you may be required to provide photographs. If your item arrives with obvious damage to the package take a photo of the damage for your claim.

If you convo me before purchasing I can let you know if your country is on the USPS restricted list. Every effort is made to assure your purchases will arrive safely. If you do not choose to purchase insurance the store is not responsible for loss, damage or theft. Please check to make sure your purchase is approved by your country's customs laws.

Additional policies and FAQs
Pricing and price quotes take into consideration the time to construct the quilt (labor), fees it costs to sell the quilt, all materials including batting, backing, thread/floss, fabric and special requests for upgrades and/or embellishment not included in the base price shown in the sample listings. All of my designs are my own intellectual property and I do not give permission for them to be copied.

Some vintage chenille is more expensive than others; hard-to-find/rare and quickly disappearing from the market. Other cost considerations are the hours and expenses associated with resourcing, shopping for, restoring and maintenance of fabrics. It may cost one price to produce a design one time and another price the next time due to flucuations. These flucuations must be configured into the formula for pricing an individual quilt. Pricing is not frivolous but may change from one quilt to another even within the same design. I do not discount for multiple custom orders or sell wholesale. Each quilt is designed specifically for the customer as ordered.

Please read the entire listing description and shop policies. By making your down payment, you indicate agreement with all policies and the design plan as outlined in our communication record. All communication is to take place in writing in the form of convos using the Etsy communication system and will be a permanent record. I do not discuss orders via telephone or email. I am often booked 4-6 weeks in advance, sometimes longer during holidays. Occasionally a quilt can be completed in less than 4-6 weeks but not usually.

Construction of your quilt will begin when I receive your down payment. Fabrics that I need to purchase are ordered and fabrics I have on hand for your quilt are cut. Your design is drawn and a final layout is done. If you choose to cancel your order for any reason after down payment, you will forfeit all monies and supplies. Hours of labor have gone into preparation and the down payment will 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.

~ It is impossible to show the "exact" color on all monitors because resolutions differ between monitors. Photos are not photo shopped unless photo is taken on rainy/snowy day that causes a lot of shadows on the fabric. If necessary, photos may be brightened enough to decrease shadows so that fabric detail can more easily be seen.

Every effort has been made to publish shop policies and guidelines that address all contingencies. AlorasAdorables' shop and policies were implemented with the professional guidance of a business advisor, attorney and other paid and unpaid advisors. This advice was used in preparing published policies and every detail of shop preparation and maintenance in accordance with those guidelines provided by Etsy. Ongoing professional guidance periodically and routinely address issues as they arise.

~ I appreciate pleasant customers and you will be treated cordially with respect and dignity in return. If you have a complaint, please express it courteously. Argumentative and rude customers will not be served. In the event of a problem, I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who behaves unreasonably, causes unnecessary conflict or gives reason to believe a transaction will not go smoothly.
