About

After receiving my BFA in Photography from the Art Institute of Boston, I began working as a seamstress in a custom drapery workroom which eventually lead to my current career in the world of pattern design and craft writing. You can find my work in the pages of sewing books, magazines, appearances on PBS’s Sew It All TV, my series of online classes for Craft Daily, through my line of easy to follow sewing and embroidery patterns, and in April of 2018 my first book from Martingale Press. When not whipping things up in the studio I spend my time with my husband and two children in Catskill, NY.

Returns and exchanges
I want everyone to be 100% happy with what they purchased, so if for any reason you aren't happy, just contact me and we'll figure it out on a case by case basis.

If an item arrives damaged please contact me immediately, preferably with a photo. Photos of what happened help me in preventing similar issues in the future.

If you purchase an item and are not satisfied please contact me so we can discuss the issue. If you are still not happy, send the product back for a refund less the original shipping costs.

All sales are final on PDF patterns.
Payment
I accept PayPal, Direct Checkout with a credit card, as well as Etsy Gift Cards.
Shipping
I ship everything within the United States through USPS Priority Shipping which is a 2 day service but is NOT guaranteed by the Post Office. All international orders are shipped USPS First Class International Mail that has an arrival time of roughly 6 - 10 days.

International orders cannot be tracked unless they are registered which is very expensive. Once an international order leaves the US I am no longer responsible for it. That being said, in all the years I've been doing this I have only had one international order "lost".

*Some countries may charge their own import/customs/duty fees that are separate from my shipping charges and completely out of my control.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:

1. What is oilcloth?

Oilcloth is a durable and waterproof vinyl fabric. It differs from laminated fabrics in that it is vinyl laid down on a thin mesh of cotton as opposed to cotton fabric that has been laminated on one side. Both sides of oilcloth are waterproof and wash easily.

2. Who makes your bags?

I do! Everything in my shop is sewn one at a time by hand in my studio in Catskill, NY.

3. Are your bags lined?

No, each of my bags are one single layer of oilcloth making them sturdy yet flexible enough to mold to whatever the contents. Both sides of the bags, inside and out, are waterproof and washable.

4. Do you sell wholesale?

I do! Send me a convo if you're interested in seeing the line sheet from my Etsy Wholesale shop.

5. I found a pattern I like in one size, but I can't find it in another size, why not?

People purchase different sizes at different rates so sometimes I may only have a few left of a particular pattern, in a particular size.

6. Can I get a different color zipper on my bag?

I buy all of my zippers in bulk so the colors you see are the only ones I stock. As far as switching colors between bags, I try to make many bags in advance so I'm well stocked at all times. Because of this I can't switch up the zipper colors.

7. I ordered a bag but it's too big! Can I exchange it?

All of the dimensions of the bags are listed in the description so please read the listings carefully before ordering. If you still think your bag is too big (or too small) please contact me and I can do an exchange. You will be responsible for return shipping costs.

8. I'm an international customer and am still waiting for my order, can you tell me where it is?

Unfortunately, no. Unless I register my international packages (which is very expensive) I really don't know what happens once they leave the US and I can't be held responsible. The good news is, I ship international all the time and have only ever had one lost package!

9. When I went to pick up my (international) package there were extra fees! I already paid for shipping!

Sometimes certain governments impose duties or custom charges on top of what it costs to ship the package. This is government by government and a totally separate charge from what it cost me to ship the package to you.
