About HomespunTales

Sales 212
On Etsy since 2009

I am an experienced Quilter and Pet Mom

Homespun Tales is an off shoot of my Primary shop- The Homespun Loft.
This shop has been on an almost 4yr Hiatus.. and I am refocusing it to now sell my Home Goods line of products. More items also found at my web site

I am a long time experienced Quilter and Crafter. I have done craft shows for years with the sort of product I will have in this shop. My items are also found in a handful of Gift Shops in NYS.

I am a huge Pet Lover with 2 German Shepherd Dogs, 3 Cats, 3 Donkeys. While my Pet line is carried in my other shop (The Homespun Loft), I think you will see my love of animals here also.

My Children Quilts follow all the laws and are compliant with the CPSC/CPSIA laws for Children 12 and under. My quilts are safe for your child. (I keep the documentation on file).

Thank you for stopping by my shop... I hope you find something unexpected that brings you joy!

I am an experienced Quilter and Sewist. The item you see in the picture is what will be sent.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard

Returns and exchanges
If when you get your purchase.. and something is not right or you are not happy with the item. You have 14 days to return the item. Please let me work with you at my expense to make it right.

I have a 14 day return policy.. Please notify me first of the problem and lets work together to handle the problem. If a return is needed-- The package MUST have tracking on it.. In most cases I can provide you with a link/picture of the return label for you to print off your printer to get the item back to me. I will only refund postage from USPS and not another carrier.

Once I have the item back-in the same Smoke free, unsoiled condition that it was sent to you in I will also at that point cancel the sale and refund the original payment and the original postage AND the postage to get the item back to me. OR I can make you a new one-- we can discuss at that point. I am easy to work with and want and expect happy customers that come back.

** Please note that Personalized items are not returnable. If an item has a name etc embroidered on it.. I send you a picture of how it looks for your approval before I send it. Just convo and we can discuss.

** If the item arrives damaged by the PO-Photos need to be taken and sent to me to show me the damage before refunds or replacement discussed. Please keep the Item with the original packaging as most times the PO needs to also see that for a refund. Together we will get it sorted out.

Because of all the reports in the news about packages stolen from front porches in the USA..IF the USPS tracking information shows that the item was indeed delivered ( the Postal people now scan packages when they deliver them so everyone knows if it was left on a porch or handed to someone)... and you don't have it/or didn't get refunds will be made as it is now a matter for your local Police and Post Office to handle. ( I can help sort this out too).

Any Questions? Please Convo.
Payment is Etsy Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards for purchases Or PayPal (Your choice). PayPal also Accepts Checks and Debit and Credit Cards or your PayPal account cash.

Payment is expected at the time of commitment to purchase. Custom orders are prepaid- no work is started until the item is paid for.

**IF your Mailing Address is in New York State--And you purchase this item-- Then NYS sales tax must be paid to complete the sale. It will be on the invoice.
I only use USPS for shipping..Shipping Discounts are based on the total weight of all items shipped in the same package. I refund any overages when I print the label.

All USA shipped items will have tracking on them. USPS insures automatically up to $50 of product in USA for priority mail for no extra cost. Make sure to save the original package if you need to file a claim for postal damages. ( I will help with that should the need arise).

International customers are responsible for any Customs Tariffs and VAT charges/Royal Mail. Due to postal regulations in the USA.. all International Items will be marked as Merchandise. It is the law in the USA. This site might help you with VAT
Additional policies and FAQs
**Feedback is certainly nice and if you can leave it--please do. If you feel you can't leave 5* because you never do and if there was no problem- then I would rather you just didn't leave it at all. Feedback is connected to how my items get found in a search. (see my refund policies).If you like your item...I would much rather have you just post the item to your Social Media with a link back to my shop.
This is different than feedback because you had a problem with my sale..then those are your own thoughts on the matter and freely expressed as should be.

And I welcome special requests.... If you can think it up-- I can sew it.

Frequently asked questions
I Have Allergies

My home is Smoke Free. I do have Dogs and Cats in the house-BUT they are not allowed around my fabric or in my 2 sewing rooms.

I am in Not in the USA.. are there custom fees to be paid?

If you are in the EU or any country outside the USA- then all Customs Charges/VAT/ and Royal Mail charges are to be paid by the Customer

Custom and personalized orders

For the most part I can- I have an Embroidery machine. Some items need to be remade first and then they would be a custom order. Just ask. Embroidered names are $4.00 extra for each name.

I don't see what I am looking for- Can you make it?

Maybe Yes-- just ask. I am an experienced sewist and Quilter. I also have a very good imagination. If you can think it up-- I most likely can sew it.
