A little about Me...

Hello! My name is Ginger and I am the owner of Gingerberry Creek and creator of all of the original hand-crafted pattern designs and finished primitive dolls, ornaments, bowl fillers and tucks that are available here in my shop and on my website.

I've been crafting since 1983. I started with taking a Home Economics class in high school and just kept trying different crafts that were interesting to me. At first I would create items for myself, my friends and family. Then while my husband was in the military I began to branch out and start selling at the Craft Shows and Bazaars and at one time had a small shop on the military base in the BX building.

Then in 1997 I became very ill with several diseases & illnesses which took me away from my crafting passion. In June 1998 I was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. I had a few rounds of chemo which put me into a temporary remission just long enough to get me to a Bone Marrow Transplant. In October 1998 I received my new Bone Marrow that we hoped would save me from this horrible disease. By the grace of God I am still here today.

After all that it took me many years to get back on my feet and feel like crafting again.

Well needless to say, I am now doing much better and am able to start creating and selling at local Craft Shows & Fairs and now have an online presence with my own website, Etsy Shop, Craftsy Shop, Facebook page, Pinterest and also have my patterns at Pattern Mart. I'm always looking at expanding into other venues and having Gingerberry Creek featured in other shops and hopefully be featured in a periodical or magazine.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me and about the growth of Gingerberry Creek. Thank you for visiting me here in my Etsy shop and you can always visit my other shops and website at www.gingerberrycreek.com.

If you have a moment I would love for you to follow Gingerberry Creek on Facebook! Here is the link to the Gingerberry Creek page: https://www.facebook.com/gingerberrycreek/

Happy Shopping and Creating!

Hello and Welcome to Gingerberry Creek! Here you will find hand-crafted Primitive Patterns, Primitive Dolls, Ornaments, Tucks, and Pin Keeps. I am always adding new pattern designs and supplies to my store. If you would like to see something in particular I would love to hear from you!

All of my Primitive Patterns, Primitive Dolls, Ornaments, Bowl Fillers, Tucks and Pin Keeps are individually handmade. Therefore, there may be slight variations and imperfections from one item to the next. Due to the fact that items are all Individually Handmade all sizes listed are approximate. I personally believe this is what makes each handmade product special and unique and truly making each one of them one of a kind.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Custom Orders*

If you don't sew or have time to sew and you would like one of my cute Primitive Dolls or Ornaments, No problem! I am now only accepting a Limited amount of Custom Orders due to the fact that I receive a lot of requests and am not having enough time to create new designs.

Due to the popularity of my designs I keep very busy with other custom orders, so as of right now, my turn around time to complete any Custom Order is about 6-8 weeks from the date of purchase and payment. These timelines are approximate and may change.

Please send me a Conversation with the following information: Pattern Name and Pattern Design # and any special Colors requests. Due to the fact that ALL of my items are Individually Handmade each is one of a kind and may have slight differences from the Original Pattern Photos. The sizes listed on all of my Pattern Designs are approximate and due to the nature of each one being Individually Handmade the item may be slightly smaller or larger than the size of the Original Design. All of my Handmade Primitives are for Decorative Use Only and are NOT intended for children or as a toy.

*Wool Felt*

All of the Wool Felt that I carry is manufactured by National NonWovens. The Wool Felt is a nice blend of wool and rayon. In the shop I carry 2 different types of blends. The first blend is 20% wool & 80% rayon and the second blend is 35% wool & 65% rayon. They are both very nice blends for felt projects like my patterns and can be used for many other uses.

Wool Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing the fibers together. Due to this manufacturing process the Wool Felt may contain natural fiber pieces that show in the Wool Felt. As well, the Wool Felt may be misshapen, meaning that it may be slightly shorter than the size width stated by the manufacturer of 36" wide. These slight and rare imperfections are natural consequences of the Wool Felt making process and your order may randomly contain them.

To ensure the original condition of the Wool Felt as produced by the manufacturer it is stored in the original packaging from the manufacturer and comes from a Smoke-Free Studio. Every Wool Felt Order is cut straight from the bolt at the time of processing. If ordering more than a 1/2 yard the Wool Felt will be cut in one continuous piece.

Slight color differences may occur between different dye lots. This is normal for many fabrics to include Wool Felt. We recommend that you purchase a sufficient quantity of the color needed to complete your project. Please be aware that some Wool Felt Colors have a tendency to fade in any type of lighting.

If you have any questions about Custom Order or Wool Felt please send me a conversation.
