Such a beautiful kit. I have never made a softie before so this was totally new to me. The pattern was mostly easy to read and understand. The only negative was my kits were both missing a pipe cleaner in each and the eyes, but I picked these up at a craft shop easy enough. I would buy another kit/pattern again. My friend and I had a lot of fun making Rilla and I learnt a lot! Thank you :)

Following the threads.....

Fabric has been an obsession for as long as Cynthia can remember. Her early interest, lead her to follow a path full of textures, textiles and techniques all related to fabric and sewing.

With varied work including fashion, television, sculpture, couture wedding dresses, and custom quilts, her greatest passion has been sharing the joy of sewing with others.

In 2011, she decided to put her passion for teaching into practice with the launch of her line of threadfollower hand-stitching kits. Each adorable kit makes one palm-sized animal which can be completed in an afternoon or evening. They are the perfect project for beginners and advanced sewers alike and a wonderful project for parents and children to make together.

“What I love most about threadfollower is sharing my passion for sewing with others. I love hearing from my customers about their threadfollower experiences and seeing their finished creations. Sharing the magic of stitching is what this is all about for me!”

CREDIT CARDS/PAYPAL: You don't need a Paypal account to pay for your order through Paypal. Click the payment button and you will see the option to pay with your credit card without signing up for a Paypal account.

Products will be shipped after receiving payment.

Once the products have shipped the order may not be cancelled.
Orders are shipped via USPS with your choice of shipping speed. You can select the shipping speed at checkout.

Shipping times on international orders cannot be guaranteed.

In the case of a return or exchange, all shipping costs are non-refundable and are the responsibility of the buyer.

Lost packages are unusual, but should this occur I do not reimburse for shipping or the lost item. If you would like shipping insurance, you must contact me prior to purchasing your item so I can include it in the order.

Once a package leaves the US, the package is no longer trackable. Typically, there are no issues and orders arrive within 5 - 15 business days of shipment. Unfortunately, shipping internationally is not fool proof and sometimes orders are lost. We will look into lost packages 3 weeks from when they left the US.

International customers may be subject to an import tax which is calculated and applied by their own government (we are not provided with your tax implication information before or after shipping your package). Should this fee be applied to you, Cynthia Treen Studio will not be held responsible for covering or reimbursing charges.

Please be aware: I cannot change the value of your package to avoid import taxes as it is illegal and punishable by penalties and fines
