Sharing My Passion

Hello, I'm Emily, owner of Girlpower!
My shop name came naturally from me and my 5 sisters who all knit!
I started my shop as a way to branch out on my hobby, knitting. I wanted to knit for other people, not only myself. : ) I have so many designs whirling in mind, and I can't make them all for myself, so I am here to create and share with others!
My studio is wherever I am, and my inspiration comes from everywhere!

I design most of my items, and love to come up with a unique and special item. And every item is different, because in knitting, no two items can be exactly the same.

About my process:
I am fascinated with how yarn can be turned into amazing and beautiful wearable pieces!
I start simply with yarn, needles and a vision for each piece.

After many hours of work in each piece, I wash the item, then store it in a container to keep out all contamination. Some pieces will have a light scent of natural lavender.

I love natural fibers, like angora, merino, bamboo, and wool, and use them most of the time. Another of my favorites is a wool/acrylic blend that can be washed, perfect for children and toys.

The quality is what what makes the piece! I have to pay more for quality yarn, and this is why my things may cost a little more, because I choose the best fibers.

I believe my quality is reflected in my pieces, so feel free to browse what I have, and don't be shy to ask questions!

Thanks for stopping by my shop! I appreciate your taking the time to look at my items. I have a lot of fun and put a lot of love into the making of all my items, and I hope this shows thorough!
All my items come from a smoke-free home, but I have 1 cat. I do my best to keep any stray kitty hairs away from my yarn, I store it out of her access, and I keep my current knitting in baskets so she's not tempted to play with any of it!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept credit/debit cards, etsy gift cards, and Paypal.

You can also use a CC/DC through Paypal - just choose the "don't have a paypal account" option on the bottom of the payment page when checking out! Paypal will then ask for your credit card and info.

I do not included a printed receipt with domestic orders - ask in "notes to seller" at checkout if you need one.
Shipping
I ship quickly, the same or next day.

United States: USPS 1st class (2-5 days) or Priority mail (2-3 days). Express (1-2 days) can be requested.

Priority/express mail is available on most items - choose a "shipping upgrade" after adding your items to cart. If you do not see any options, feel free to ask.

International:
I offer 1st class international shipping (2-6 weeks) on the majority of my listings.

If you do not see your country as an option, please contact me with your location, and I will give you a quote. Or contact me if you want to check the quoted price - often I list a roundabout cost.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I always ship with a tracking number, and insure $40+, protecting me and you from damage/lost package headaches. Be aware claims can take several weeks to clear - I'll stick with you!

Excess shipping charges are promptly refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns? If there is a problem please contact me - we'll work it out! I may or may not be able to accept a return due to the piece in question.

Custom orders are non returnable/refundable.

There are several reasons I cannot accept returns on most items:
Knits may quickly pick up pet/human hair, dirt, etc.
Pieces like hats/slippers cannot be resold as "new" if worn.
Some fibers can quickly pick up odors, such as smoke and air fresheners.

I am VERY particular in listing fiber content and measurements. I'll be happy to answer your questions.

For lost/damaged packages please see shipping policies.
Additional policies and FAQs
For any type of custom item, please contact me, and we'll get it going! If you have a photo to work off of, that's great too.
For a custom item, the typical charge is the cost of yarn and 0.10 - 0.15 charge per yard knit. Minimum charge of 150 yards.

On most items you will not need to pay until it is finished and listed. On larger items I may need to send you a Paypal invoice to cover yarn cost, then finish payment with the listing later. I am also open to payment plans for larger pieces.

Please leave me feedback about your item! It helps me improve, and it lets other customers know I do a good job!

I recommend Eucalan brand wool wash for your new knits.
You can also use clear dish soap, baby bath, or gentle hair shampoo.
