About

A little bit about me .....

My great grandmother Florence, a uniform seamstress during WWII, taught me to sew clothes. Yiayia taught me to crochet and embroider and gave me my introduction to quilting. Aunt Kay taught me to knit. And I taught myself to tat.

My grandmothers also taught me to save everything, waste nothing and take the time to do your task well. I miss them. I would give anything for just one more day . . .

I have been quilting in earnest the last 15 years and love the whole process. I design all my quilts with EQ7 quilting software then hi-ho, hi-ho it's upstairs I go to start cutting all those beautiful fabrics into little pieces, just to sew them back together again.

I do all of my own quilting (stitching the top, batting and back together) on a Pfaff quilting system. My quilting is free hand and free motion, and each quilt get's it's own unique quilting design.

Please visit my little blog-let ... there are additional pictures of some of my Etsy quilts and a bit more information about me and my endeavors.

Friday - October 10, 2014

I'm moving. Back home to Spokane, way on the other side of Washington. It's been a year long process of getting the house ready to sell; downsizing, and more downsizing. And then some more downsizing. And I still think I might have too much stuff for the biggest U-Haul there is!

The house sold and the U-Haul is here on Monday. So it is time to hiatus/vacation my shop until I get installed in Spokane .... which should only be a couple weeks. I anticipate I'll be back and active October 22nd or so.

Please convo if you have any questions .... I'll be online, just unable to ship anything.

Wish me luck!

    I lived in Greece in my 20's. And Paris in my 30's. Now I am happily planted in a sweet little 1906 house, which is finally all restored, painted and polished. I am everyday grateful I get to quilt to my heart's content.

Shop policies

My quilts are made with great care to give you years of pleasure. I use quality cotton fabrics, thread and batting for strength and years of beauty.

My studio is 2 rooms; one where I do the sewing which is upstairs under the eaves, and one where I do the quilting in the basement which is nice and cool in the summer. Both are smoke, pet and grouch free!

And as of December 2013, I have begun to down size and simplify my life ... I am starting to let loose some of the treasure that I have collected over the years. I never thought I would crest the hill that is collecting, but I have! Hopefully new items will be added weekly.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payments are accepted through PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout.

If you do not have a PayPal account, you can make a credit card payment without opening an account by using the "I do not have a PayPal account" option at checkout.

Payment it expected at time of purchase. If payment is not received within 24 hours, the transaction will be cancelled. Please convo me if you need special
accommodation.

WASHINGTON the STATE SALES TAX . . . .

If your purchase is shipping to a WASHINGTON the STATE address, sales taxes need to be added to the purchase.

> > > Please select "Other" during PayPal checkout so I can create an invoice for you with the correct sales tax calculation. PayPal is set up to calculate the highest WA rate of 9.8% which is what will charge if you do not use the "Other/Invoice" option. I do not want you to pay any more sales tax than necessary!!

I need to manually input the shipping zip code to calculate the correct sales tax since neither PayPal or Etsy are set up to calculate destination sales tax rates like we have in WA.

.
Shipping
U.S. Shipping rate for each item is listed on the product page.

All shipping rates for my handmade and homemade quilts are quoted USPS Priority Mail. I am not trying to make anything on shipping charges, just cover the cost.

Cookware, collectibles and household items will ship USPS Standard mail. Books will ship USPS Medial Mail.

I will combine anything that will fit into one box! If you would like multiple items, convo me and I'll figure out if I can get the items shipped together at the original shipping quote. I'm all for shipping economy!

All items over $75 will require a signature for delivery. I apologize if this is inconvenient but most are happy with the extra layer of assurance that their purchase will arrive at their door and in their hands.

Items will ship within 1 day of cleared payment unless otherwise noted or by your request for delayed shipping.

Busy Bee No. 16 is only shipping to United States address only at this time.

> > > Please make sure your Etsy and PayPal shipping information match!!
Refunds and Exchanges
I make every effort to present the items in my shop accurately and truthfully. If you have questions, or need additional pictures, please convo me prior to purchasing.

If you have concerns about an item you purchased, please convo me within 48 hours of receipt so we can address your concerns.

I take great pride in the things I make and they are made as if I am making them for someone I love. I want you to love! love! love! your purchase.

Shipping charges are generally not refundable. A restocking fee of $25 may apply to returned orders.
