Announcement   ***Shipping times may be longer thank expected due to labour action with the Canadian Postal Service. Thanks in advance for your patience.****

Friends - I will no longer be selling the very popular made-to-order red R sweater or blue H sweater. Thanks so much for making my sweaters so popular over the past few years :) :) :) I will post finished sweaters in the shop which will be similar, using locally sourced colours which may vary slightly from the originals. II'm open to receiving requests for custom colours and letters. Feel free to send me an inquiry.


In the shop you will also find:

* Classic Winter Wear - cozy mittens, handknit socks, all manner of noggin warmers. A few HP items kicking around the shop as well ; )

* Summer/Warm Weather knit & crochet accessories like sunhats, newsboy caps, cotton beanies, tams, etc.

* Fundraising Projects under the Pay it Forward shop section that share funds with charitable groups near & dear to my heart

The shop accepts direct credit card payments & accepts Etsy gift cards. Paypal also still accepted : )

Thanks for visiting!

About

Necessity is the mother...

I wanted to be an inventor when i grew up. Liked understanding how things worked, built things with mechano and rubber bands, made own board games, doll quilts.

Now here we are approaching 30 years later and it's the mother in my headline here that has become the key word for me. It's the kids getting excited about Mrs. W jumpers, or Scabbers dolls, or sock monkey hats and asking for one for a friend's birthday that determine what I chose to spend my time making.

As my husband says when i tell him i spend my days going for kitty walks, and doing our daily constitutionals around the Dominion Seed Gardens with jugs of bubble juice and a handful of wands, a lot of people would think that's wonderful.

Which it is.

But an absolutely vital part of the process that requires an hour to make the squirrel and another hour to make the bag for an entity that becomes a baby gift pak with reusable nappy bag.

Who'd want to spend their days any other way?!

Hi!

I like to share handmade items that I looked for (and were hard to find) when my kids were young. Or that were given to me and I adored.

I use natural materials when I can, and recycle and repurpose where possible. This may include clean, snag free shipping containers.

All items made in our smoke free home with no pets.

Shipping
I ship by Canada Post, whichever format by weight allows the parcel to arrive within about 2 weeks. Customers can pre-arrange slightly more expensive expedited shipping via convo with me before ordering.

While parcels usually arrive much earlier, I allow 2 weeks for domestic delivery and up to 4 - 5 weeks for international shipments before resending or refunding for non-delivery.

Please note that international buyers are responsible for any and all customs charges, taxes or additional postage fees.

Please bear in mind as well that shipping around the Christmas season can be unpredictable.

Thanks so much for your understanding.
Refunds and Exchanges
*****Returns on Weasley sweaters - are possible on the standard red with letter R or standard blue with H - within 30 days in unused, resellable condition. I prefer not to have returns on custom colours or monograms because these are difficult to sell off. Thanks for your understanding on this.*****

On general hats, mittens, etc - returns are possible within 30 days if the item is in unused, re-sellable condition.

I'm pretty meticulous about shipping adjustments. If it costs less than estimated to ship your purchase, I will refund the shipping difference to your account.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders very much welcome.

On made-to-order items - please allow 2 weeks before they can be shipped. Yarn may need to be ordered in, and I may need to factor in shipping time for the yarn to get to me. Estimated construction time in each mto listing is a guideline as long as I have the yarn on hand or can source locally. Thanks for your understanding on this.

I am open to wholesale inquiries. Pls be aware that due to the time intensive nature of knit pieces, i cannot dramatically reduce the price. Wholesale discount amounts to about 20 %.

Consignment - no.
