About

It's all about the dogs in my life......

Years ago when I raised and showed Newfoundland dogs, I could never find anything to purchase that actually had a Newfoundland dog on it...and so i started making things myself For quite awhile I owned a special printer and a heat press and would make all of my items.
Now I am retired, living in a smaller home, so now I do the designing and have companies that print my products for me...(mostly fabrics with various animals and floral prints and themes)
For many years I taught Art and Special Education, later I also owned and operated a boarding kennel. I also was a founding member and worked with Iowa Search and Rescue with my Newfoundland dogs. Dogs have been a major part of my adult life. Now I no longer have newfs but still have my little rat terrier Zoey.

    I upload my designs to the web and have a couple of different companies that produce (print) my fabrics, after I have previewed the fabric, it is printed and shipped to you. This means I can be very flexible with each order to fulfill your needs.

Manufacturers

    They print many different products with custom designs. their products are of excellent quality... I use them a lot because it is very easy to place my designs on their products and very easy to see how they will look.

Thanks for visiting my shop! I am happy to provide you with any information you request concerning any items, all you have to do is email me at knewfy [!at] gmail.com I hope that the items you purchase will bring you as much joy and contentment as they bring to me when I craft them. I have tried to present the items with images that will really show what they are like, accurate colors, and so on, but digital imagery being different with different computers and browser systems, the colors may not appear exactly as they are. So if you purchase a product and it does look slightly different than what you expected, that may be the reason.
*******
My fabric designs are custom printed and depending on the fabric come from one of two companies which print my custom items. for me. I have cleared this through the admins at Etsy and most of my items that may be printed elsewhere are considered in the "HANDMADE" category, because they are my original designs and are not "mass produced". All my designs in these cases are uploaded to the company and then printed as a CUSTOM PRODUCT for me. I usually have it shipped direct to you from the company, whic is either Spoonflower or Zazzle.
YES I do custom designs, if you would like a fabric, for example, with your own dog, or your own photos, (especially fabrics that can be used in memory quilts), just let me know... I also do 3D pet portraits in felt! Alll that is needed are some good photos of your dog. Felted portraits make wonderful memories and if your pet has passed they are a good way to always cherish his/her memory. Needle felting is time consuming and the prices may seem high but it is important to remember that each creation is and original one of a kind work of art and certainly cannot be reproduced.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept Paypal . No items will be shipped until payment is made.
Shipping
I ship via the US Postal service the majority of the time,first class, so it's a good idea to post your MAILING ADDRESS when you order. If UPS is used (ground shipping)I will notify you as they can not use a Post Office box as an address.Shipping varies with the item and shipping policies are usually listed with each item on the checkout page, if different from the "norm".I do ship my felted critters internationally but not my fabrics or other listings. Please remember when shipping internationally that there may be extra time for customs, I have no control over that. If the rates differ dramatically from what I have charged you, it may be necessary to notify you of any cost increase, if there is a large decrease I will of course refund the over charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are only available within ten days of receipt of purchase and items must be returned at your expense as far as shipping, before the price will be refunded. Refunds are in the form of exchanges., for the most part. Refunds are applicable to all fabric but other items may or may not be returnable depending on the product.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please allow up to 15 business days for delivery of custom printed fabrics. The printing company has to print them first, then ship either to me or direct to you (if I have already "proofed" the product I will ship directly to you), and it may take as long as ten days for the fabric to be printed.
