Sewing for Fun

I started my Etsy shop to cover expenses for my Ewe University podcast. I only sew when I feel like it (but that is a lot!) so I enjoy every moment of putting my project bags together to send to you.

Welcome to Halcyarn -- we make knitting fun! Ok, I know that knitting is fun in and of itself (well, except for the dropped stitches, frogging, and throwing your naughty knitting in the corner until it is ready to behave), but isn't it even more fun when you are using luscious yarn, fabulous needles, beautiful stitch markers, and bags -- oh, the dreamy bags! I am a bag lady. And an unabashed enabler. What could be better than to channel these characteristics into an Etsy shop? :)

I am Kristine, the owner, bookkeeper, designer, fabric purchaser, photographer, and the ONLY seamstress. I also personally respond to your messages as well as wrap and ship everything.

My bags are designed not only to focus on the fabrics I select, but to be useful as well. Everything is created in my studio just for you. For many years I have used the knitting project bags I make, so I know they are a great size for small to large sized projects like socks, hats, baby items, scarves, shawls, and even sweaters. Please feel free to contact me with questions about a bag style in which you are interested. I'm happy to chat with you about possible options.

All treasures are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly environment.

I strive to provide a personal service to you. It is important to me that you are happy with your purchase; positive feedback is always appreciated by myself and future customers.

Thanks for visiting!

Additional policies and FAQs
If you see something you like, but not in a print you love? I will be happy to accept custom orders for fabric substitutions! Please visit FABRIC.COM and choose a fabric of your liking and I will set up a custom listing for you with the bag of your choice and the specific fabric you like. Please contact me to submit a request or any questions. Payment for custom orders is due before work will begin -- I will set up a custom listing for you. Once payment is received, your place in the custom order queue is secured.

Each item is hand made and may vary from the pictures listed, only because each item is created from scratch and sewn individually. At all times I am doing my best to create your item to the best of my ability and your treasure may look slightly different from the listing picture (for instance, lining shades, fabric placement, etc.).

I try really hard to depict all fabric colors accurately, but please understand that all monitors are different, and colors may vary a bit.

I can ship directly to the recipient! Just please leave me a message in "notes to seller" at checking out with the correct shipping address.

I love to hear from you when you receive your order and any positive feedback is always appreciated.
