Love the vintage look of this custom printed recipe tea towel! These make great wedding and Mother's Day gifts, and are a tangible & practical way to preserve and display a bit of family history!

About

Wife, Mama, Sadhaka, Crafter, Ginger, PhD.

I enjoy creating useful items that are simple in design, allowing great fabric designs to be the star.

I learned to sew as a pre-teen from my mom - an amazing builder/crafter/potter/seamstress/any other skill you can think of - on her mother's vintage Singer Slant-O-Matic machine. That same machine is now what I use daily!

Over the years I've always had a fabric stash that I've moved from place to place. I've pulled the machine out for occasional projects, but in 2013, I decided to start trying my hand at making items to sell. I have a deep fondness for geekdom, and I love the way that custom fabric printing shops like Spoonflower can open up a wide world of possibilities on this front. I'm a practical person with a weakness for fun fabric, so my items reflect that - handmade, useful stuff!

All my items are handmade by me (on electricity machines, I'm not THAT old-school!) in my home. When I'm not sewing, I'm busy herding squirrels - er, I mean, parenting 2 young kids - and teaching Yoga. I wear a lot of hats! Oooh, maybe I should make some hats...

Thanks for checking out my shop! I strive to create high-quality handmade items. If you are ever less than satisfied with a purchase from me, please let me know, and I'll work with you to come to a resolution. I try my best to assume the positive in any situation until I'm proven wrong - I hope you will also :)

I don't accept exchanges or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
No refunds or exchanges on custom-designed items. In case of defect in workwomanship, contact me and we will work together to come to a solution.

Should a client wish to back out of a custom-printed item purchase, a full refund will only be given in cases where I have not done any work on the item. In cases where pre-printing work has been done (work on proofs, etc.), the maximum refundable amount is the cost of fabric for the given project.

Once buyer gives a proof final approval and I order fabric, no changes can be made and no refunds will be given. Approval of proof constitutes acceptance of the artwork.
Payment
Paypal not accepted for in-person delivery, sorry.
Shipping
I ship most everything USPS. I am unable to provide tracking for international packages. I re-use materials in packing and shipping, such as plastic grocery bags to wrap items inside envelopes instead of fancy tissue paper :) I hope you'll appreciate my efforts to be thrifty and green :)

International customers please note that you will be responsible for customs or point-of-entry tax.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my items are handmade with care, and will vary slightly from item to item as a result. If you are ever unsatisfied with an item, please contact me directly and I will try to work out a resolution. Electronics cases are made with a layer of padding and the D-rings are at least triple-stitched for strength. I am not responsible for damage to your device while it's in one of my cases, however. As I note in the listings, it's not kryptonite, for Pete's sake. It's like I tell my kids: if something is important to you, treat it accordingly. So don't go throwing your iPad around or swinging it wildly by the wrist strap and then assume I'll buy you a new one :)

RESERVED LISTING POLICY: If I create a reserved/custom listing for you based upon an Etsy or FB exchange, you will have 2 weeks (14 calendar days) from the time I contact you to let you know that the listing is up to either purchase the item or communicate your intent to purchase. I understand needing to wait until payday, etc., but I put time and money into my creations so I ask that you respect that. If two weeks pass with no communication I reserve the right to open the listing up to the public for sale. If there is ever any concern, PLEASE get in touch - it is my sincere desire for everything to go pleasantly.

CUSTOM PRINTED ITEMS POLICY: For custom printed items, buyer will receive high-quality proof before fabric is ordered. I am happy to make any adjustments requested. Once buyer gives a proof final approval and I order fabric, no changes can be made. Approval of proof constitutes acceptance of the artwork.
