About GHDSimplyHandmade

Sales 725
On Etsy since 2016


Our studio is located in a small historic town in New Hampshire. This is where all the magic happens. Everything we sell is made right here. Nothing is mass produced, no shortcuts are taken and we do all the work ourselves.

It begins with you in mind. Carefully selecting the materials, taking the time to create each piece and professionally finishing all seams and hems.

Everything is Ready to Ship whenever you place your order. Each of your items are carefully pressed prior to shipping, then wrap in tissue paper to help keep each item clean and neat during the shipping process. All orders arrive in resealable bags to ensure your items arrive in perfect condition, ready for you to use.

After preparing your order for shipment, you will receive your tracking information. This allows you to track your order from our studio to your home. After all, we know just how excited you are to receive your order and this will help you know when it is arriving.

With 40+ years of sewing experience, we are confident you will love each piece. Whether you are looking for Everyday items, Seasonal pieces or Holiday specific, we hope you find something special for your home, family and friends.

Our shop is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are available to answer any questions you may have Monday through Friday 9am -5pm. We are closed weekends and major holidays. . . although you may catch us in the studio on weekends depending on our work schedule. If you message us while we are out of the office, rest assured, we will be in touch with you as soon as we return.

Thank you for visiting GHDSimplyHandmade, hope to see you again very soon!
