QUILTER'S GUIDE: How many squares do you get from typical listings:
24x18 = 12 6-inch squares 24x12 = 8 6-inch squares
Cutting quilt squares requires precision and intense concentration that is time-consuming. I will occasionally offer surplus squares in sets but I elect not to take custom orders for quilt squares.

♥♥ Please leave feedback as the feedback system is your assurance you are getting great service and value. I work hard to describe my merchandise as it actually is, noting any flaws that I may find because my reputation is important to me and I want to avoid your disappointment. However, I am human and may miss a small flaw as few vintage fabrics are pristine and slight imperfections are to be expected from time to time. If your experience is not 5-star, please give me the opportunity to make it right if I can.

About

Welcome to Alora's Adorables!

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME ~
❁ 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 not an expert. I am always open to learning if you have something to share.
❁ I occasionally have help during holidays but most often do the actual work of AlorasAdorables myself ~ resourcing, designing and sewing. I 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, not because I am applying sales techniques. Since opening the shop I've consistently maintained 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, 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.
❁ <*)))>< My faith is primary in my life and I strive to operate my business with Christian principles. 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.

★★★★★THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE★★★★★

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 for some time most days to shop for replacement stock and to complete custom orders. I do check for convos daily so you can be assured of a prompt response to your question.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
METHODS OF PAYMENT

INSURING YOUR PURCHASE
~ All orders in excess of $100 are required to be insured with signature confirmation. Insurance only covers damage or loss in transit while signature confirmation guarantees proof of delivery to address and requires your signature.
~ 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. Refunds on insured, lost or damaged orders are issued to you by the postal service used.

~ Filing and collecting on a claim does not involve the shop and is between the customer and the U.S. Postal Inspector.
~ Keep all packaging for postal inspection and 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.

DOMESTIC U.S. SHIPPING
~ Every order is sent with a delivery confirmation tracking number that becomes a part of your purchase history with Etsy and/or PayPal. This number is provided to you by email at time of shipment so you can track the transit of your order. No changes can be made to shipping addresses after purchase of postage has been made. Add new addresses to your shipping profile with Etsy and/or PayPal prior to placing the order. Address must include your full name.

- Please check to make sure your purchase is approved by your country's customs laws. Returns are not accepted and refunds are not offered on orders that are confiscated by your country's customs officials.
~ Customs Forms and Duty/Use Tax: All customs forms will be filled out with the actual purchase price and product information in compliance with U.S. and international laws.
Refunds and Exchanges
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" and we do not accept returns on fabrics that show normal wear. However, if an error has been made in your order please note the following:
- A refund is given only for the fabric being returned or exchanged, not for an entire order and all other sales are final.
- Postage is not refunded
- Returns are not accepted without prior approval.
- I must refuse to accept delivery on any order returned without prior approval.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can fulfill custom orders in nearly every color chenille was produced in. I have a large inventory of name-brand chenille in many patterns from which to quilt. If you do not see a quilt in the colors you desire, please convo me and I will go through my stock of photos to see if I have something similar to what you want. I like to work closely with my customers to achieve their wishes for their quilt. CUSTOM ORDERS
- Prices shown in example listings are the base price for the quilt only. Larger sizes, upgrades and special requests will be charged accordingly.
- I do not discount for multiple custom orders or sell wholesale.
- All designs are the intellectual property of AlorasAdorables.
- I do not make quilt kits of our custom quilt designs.

CUSTOM ORDERS COMMUNICATION
~ All conversations will be made through Etsy's messaging system so it is a part of Etsy's recorded messages. If I can't contact you after one attempt by Etsy convo and changes must be made due to reasons beyond my control, I require the freedom to make that choice to stay within the timeline for completion.
~ Please be specific in your expectations for the finished product. I take all customer design requests into consideration when giving an estimate of costs but I also retain the right to design freedom in choice of chenille patterns and placement where I feel it is necessary.
~ Please read the entire listing description.
~ By making your down payment, you indicate agreement with all policies and the design plan as outlined in our communication record.

CUSTOM ORDERS GENERAL INFORMATION

~ Quilts are tied through all layers to reinforce integrity of batting and keeping it from shifting during repeated launderings and heavy use. This results in a puffy, pillowy backing where floss ties go through layers. This is natural to handmade, patchwork, tied quilts and distinguishes the work from machine quilting.
~ All custom quilt photos shown in listings are for example only ~ please do not purchase these listings. If you place a custom order I will prepare a customized listing for you to make the down payment and upon completion, the final payment and shipping.
~ Clear, written communication is key to meeting your expectations. I use Etsy's "convo" system for all communication, not personal e-mail or telephone.
~All custom orders are booked in advance by availability. During peak seasons and holidays it may take as long as 6-8 weeks to complete your order. Barring an emergency or circumstances beyond my control, orders are completed on schedule.
~ Example listings show design possibilities and do not imply your custom order will be exactly as shown. While keeping with the color palette you choose, different fabrics may be used as availability allows. Though similar, designs are not duplicated and each design is unique.
~ A non-refundable fee equal to 50% of total price is due at time of order. The postage cost will be itemized in your final invoice along with the balance of your final payment.
~ Custom orders are only shipped USPS Priority, insured, requiring your signature confirmation and delivery is tracked. If an item is damaged or lost in transit you must file a claim with the post office. See above information on shipping.
~ All custom sales are final. Returns are not accepted for refund, partial refund, or exchange. Long hours of preparation and planning are done to avoid disappointment and give you a trouble-free transaction. The shop has a right to recover labor costs and supplies used up to the time of cancellation; if your order is cancelled after work has begun, you forfeit all materials and will not be refunded, given an exchange or a credit.

IMPORTANT: Certification and testing by CPSIA are utilized in manufacturing but are extremely expensive for the individual quilter. No custom order quilt made by AlorasAdorables is certified by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (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.

COMPLAINTS
~If there is an issue you are not happy with, please exercise your right to initiate a polite complaint and give me an opportunity to reach a fair resolution for you and the store. In the interest of fairness, please do not leave a poor or "neutral" rating if you have not communicated a problem and given the store an opportunity to correct it. Please read Etsy feedback policies.
~ 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.

COLORS AND PHOTOGRAPHY
~ 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.
