About

A world of aprons.....

I had been crafting/sewing/selling at craft shows for many years, until my husband and I retired to New Mexico.
It's peaceful 7000 ft up in the Southwest mountains, but no craft shows to speak of, so after finally getting hooked up to the internet, I decided to try online shops.

I "fell" into aprons when I was browsing online for women's clothing. Well, I was not excited about the aprons I saw and figured an apron should at the least "fit", one size fits all-doesn't. I started making a basic half and bib apron from patterns (McCalls, Simplicity etc), adjusting this and that and got really bored with the general styles they offered.

Besides changing some of the basic styles to accommodate Plus size women, to be more flattering, I designed what I think, is a few more aprons that are attractive, flattering, and functional. (Flared Strap Bib w/lace, Square Bib w/lace & No-nonsense Bib w/towel). These three are my designs with the exception of the 'feed-through' loop at the back of the waistband idea, I saw that in a manufactured pattern.

I have been asked to sell my patterns and consider this a compliment, but there actually is not a pattern to sell. They are all just measurements marked on a strip of tape on my cutting table (the rest are in my head).

Welcome!
LC's Craft House started when I moved 7000 ft up into the mountains of New Mexico. It can be way too quiet up here and not much to do. I love trees, clean air, and can be a loner at times, but...I needed something to keep my mind off of all the strange noises, lack of people, and the abundant amount of critters. Aprons & Craft Patterns!

I was reminded of aprons by my mother-in-law, she wore one every day.
I looked around and they all kinda looked the same and were all pretty much the same size, "one size fits all", I haven't been able to fit into anything that is "one size fits all" in years, So I brought back some nostalgia with my ruffled bib apron, and designed a few new ones with my Flared Strap Bib and No-Nonsense aprons.... and added Plus Sizes, yay! (I think there should be a law that tosses any clothing manufacturer in jail if they do not make plus sizes for everything)

My first love alas, is not sewing :( ... I enjoy it, but love, love, love to sculpt with most any material (mostly wire and metal), and work with clay. The last project I created in college was pretty cool, but pretty expensive, 16 ft tall, 16 ft wide, and no where to keep it, or sell it to offset the costs...So sewing it is!

Thanks for reading my ramblings, or not... lol

You may cancel any purchase if:
1. It has not been shipped yet! Contact me asap.
2. It is NOT a special order (unless it has only been a day or two since ordering) Please contact me asap.

Money orders: Make them out to me: Lori Tyra. Please, do not forget to add a note with the style, color, and size of the apron you want. I'm a good guesser, but sorry, I'm just not that good.
Shipping
There is usually up to a ten business day handling (sewing) time before I can ship out your apron(s).

I ship all aprons USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day delivery) in the USA. Shipping insurance up to $100 in value is now automatically included by USPS. If you are purchasing a larger order and you would like it insured let me know and I can send an invoice to you from PayPal for payment. I charge only what USPS charges me.

International purchases are shipped First Class International. Shipping insurance is available but only with Priority Mail International. Contact me for pricing.

You will receive a note from me asap confirming your purchase including size, color, style, and a great big thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
1. You will receive a full refund for any apron that is not described accurately in the listing, or of lousy sewing (I am not perfect, but make a heck-of-a good apron!) Contact me within one week and I will fix, replace or refund your purchase price and shipping once apron is returned to me. Do NOT just send it back, you must contact me first.....

2. Wrong Size purchased? Contact me first... I charge 50% of the purchase price to return an apron because you purchased the wrong size, this covers the fabric I used. This is because I do NOT resell them. Once shipped, they are no longer new. PLEASE GET OUT YOUR MEASURING TAPE!!! If you are average height (5'6" or so) all you really need is your waist measurement. All needed measurements of my aprons are included in the listing, please read them and save us both a lot of grief....

3. No refunds or returns on special orders unless covered in #1.

4. Patterns: I will gladly re-send any PDF emailed pattern that gets lost in cyberspace or your spam folder or if you cannot get them to work with your computer (usually outdated software). Otherwise, sorry no refunds on patterns.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders for aprons are available. I charge a small fee for lengthening straps, skirts, ties etc. or for fuller skirts (all my gathered apron skirts are more than double what the waistband is, ie: 30" waistband = 68" skirt width), you may need/like it fuller.

I do not charge for removing pockets, lace, ruffles, or shortening straps or skirts.

Wholesale is generally five or more aprons in one order. I do discount 10-15% depending on style, and combine shipping. To do this you must contact me for a quote, and if you decide to order I will send you an invoice (bill) from PayPal for payment..... Larger orders can take longer.

Guarantees:
1. You will receive the apron size/style/color you ordered.
2. I will do my best to sew your 'special order' to your specs.
3. Your apron will last a good long time if you don't use too much bleach, let your dog chew on it, drive over it with a car too many times, or use it to scrub the garage floor etc.
4. I will respond to any questions or problems asap :)

Frequently asked questions

Your listing states 3 aprons are available, can they ship now?

My aprons are cut/sewn when ordered. I keep a few available in my listings so I do not need to re-list after each purchase. Each apron is cut/sewn/packaged/shipped separately, this is what the 10 business day ship time is for :)

Sizing details

Each listing has a waistband size, along with all needed measurements of the apron. This waistband size gives suggestions on what size waist it will fit.

Care instructions

I use a poly/cotton blend for all my aprons. The manufacturer's label states it is pre-shrunk and permapress. It still may shrink slightly in length, and/or need a bit of pressing, but is much easier to care for than muslin or many other regular cottons :)
