Thank you for stopping by the Bent Needle Designs store! I am a one-woman show (sometimes my husband will drop things at the post office for me) and a full time student. I love making beautiful things and I love books. This shop is an expression of both of those passions! My current focus is mostly on book sleeves, but there are also accessory and project bags available.

ALL ITEMS ARE MADE TO ORDER UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED. This means that the object you see in the listing photo is representative of the one you will receive, but the pattern placement on the fabric may be slightly different. Processing time is 7-10 days.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I love creating made-to-order items! However, due to the unique nature and extra time spent on each item, custom orders are NOT ELIGIBLE for coupons or other sale discounts.

Usually I can obtain more of the same fabrics used in my items. If you see something you like that's sold out or not in the size you need, convo me and we'll see what we can do! Want something slightly different, maybe a bag with a handle or a different color zipper or lining? Want a coordinating or matching set? Convo me. :)

SPINNING: Custom spinning is available! Your fiber, my wheel. Current Pricing (does not include shipping):

$0.14 per yard for any 2-ply yarn (220 yards = $30.80)
$0.18 per yard for any 3-ply yarn (220 yards = $39.60)

The desired resulting yarn will be discussed before any fiber is mailed or obtained. Every skein of handspun is unique, and there is always some slight element of surprise in how a fiber will turn out spun up. By commissioning me to spin your yarns, you agree that you understand this wonderful aspect of handspun yarn!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I love seeing my items go all over the world! However, any customs fees are your responsibility. I cannot change the value on the customs form to help you avoid import costs. As unfair as the additional tax and fees seem to us (looking at you, U.K.), to do so could get me in a lot of trouble!

OTHER STUFFS: All my products are created in a non-smoking, cat-friendly house. He isn't allowed to play with the fabric or fibers, but he does shed so there may be an occasional stray hair. :)

I ship first-class unless otherwise requested. I weigh items before shipping and use Etsy's calculated shipping costs. I also purchase shipping labels through Etsy so I am NOT making any additional profit on the shipping costs!
