Emma was super helpful with the design - sent me a first draft, then changed a few things that I wanted with no problems. I really enjoyed making it, though it was a bigger project then I had expected, it did mean I had lots more time enjoying it! My partner loved it too (as it was a gift for him). Definitely will order one for me so we can both have one! Thanks Emma :)
The home of geeky stitches.
Capes and Crafts is run by Emma and Steve, otherwise known as the lady Cape and the beardy Cape. The store was born when the lady Cape finally decided that she'd never be great at knitting and needed another craft to occupy her hands. She went back to cross stitching, and dragged the beardy Cape along for the ride, teaching him everything he'd need to know. But the two caped crafters really felt that there were a lack of patterns that suited their geeky, offbeat tastes.
So, they started creating their own patterns. The patterns usually begin life when they hear a great line in a TV show or movie, or when they fall in love with a character. Basically, whenever they think something is awesome, they start brainstorming ways to turn it into a sampler! And finding like-minded people in their lovely customers, who wanted to stitch something unique and nerdy, was amazing!
The store's range is ever expanding, including kits, geeky gifts in wonderful fabrics and greeting cards, with more new products planned for 2015.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
We ship using the least expensive option, through Royal Mail. If you would prefer your item to have a tracking number, it will add a few pounds to your shipping costs. Just let us know and we will adjust your shipping costs. If you do not see your country on the shipping lists, we will be happy to let you know how much it will cost if you drop us a message. Please remember that our shipping costs also include the costs of packaging materials.
Any cutoms fees, duties, taxes etc are the responsibility of the buyer. We will not pay these.
Please allow 1 week for items to arrive. International buyers should allow 2-3 weeks. If you request a custom order, we will let you know when it has been shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
Unfortunately, due to the nature of digital files, we cannot refund pattern purchases, but if there is a problem with the pattern, please let me know and we will try to sort things out.
Additional policies and FAQs
Alternatively, if there is a theme, character or fandom you really want to stitch yourself, but we don't have a pattern you've fallen in love with, we can create a custom PDF pattern for you! Custom PDF patterns cost between £5.00 and £15.00 depending on the size and complexity, and will usually be designed and sent to you within a week of your order. During the design process we will keep in touch with you to let you know how your order is progressing and alert you to any delays.
Customers within the EU should be aware that as of 2015, new VAT rules have come into effect which mean that digital files, like our patterns, now attract VAT at the rate for the country the buyer is based in. Previously, under UK VAT laws, there was no tax to pay on our patterns, but now the cost will vary depending on where you live within the EU. The price you see displayed now includes VAT. Customers outside of the EU will see no differences.
