About

Woman finds fun at shop in Midcoast Maine's sun!

December 2011 saw the birth of my shop. Since then it has floated like a buoy on the waves of the ocean, always in sight and ready when needed. It’s over 2 years old and my baby is growing in friends and family -- Etsy family that is, and she is in awesome company! Other newbies are starting to blossom and I am happy about that.

This year I have made a conscience effort to supply patterns to those who love to sew at affordable prices as that they may also be able to find wonderful fabric to make something beautiful! I hunt for old and new patterns in a variety of sizes to fit the international population I am happy to serve. Women everywhere are welcome to ask me for advice as I am a self-taught and patient seamstress. All women may be confident purchasing from me as I really care that they get exactly what they want. I have no qualms encouraging them to shop around if I do not have what they are looking for. I trust Etsy will have a shop that will meet their needs if I am unable!

As for my shop, it is truly as advertised: miscellany just happened to be the perfect word to describe what it is full of. And what alliteration to be able to use it with "Midcoast," a special place where I love the peace and tranquility.

I hope to send a little piece of me with each item from my shop. I wish all people peace, health and happiness. Does it sound corny? Perhaps, but after all, THIS page is about me! And that’s why my shop works just fine!

    Everyday is a new adventure. I now love the fact that I can reach international people -- even if it is only with my patterns for now! I look forward to growing and discovering new ways to find what people need!

    As wonderful as he is, he is completely shy and would never want to be acknowledged. But I must! Without this loving man, I could never make it to the post on time!

Take a little trip through time and leave feeling refreshed, hopefully after finding something to take with you.

Payment
I accept PayPal for all purchases. Orders for custom items, such as baked goods or hand-sewn articles, can only be cancelled prior to payment. All other purchases can be cancelled prior to shipment. Just keep up the great communication and let's all get along!
Shipping
All items will be packaged carefully and shipped promptly so they arrive at your home in the same condition as shown in my photos. Most items can be combined into a single package for a shipping discount, but it depends on the items. For instance, several sewing patterns could be shipped together, along with a book or magazine. If you are interested in international shipping, please contact me first for a quote and I will give you several options.*** Just know that I cannot be responsible for any lost shipments, but I will be happy to provide tracking information when possible. Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
Most items can be returned for a full refund less shipping if you're not satisfied. However, due to the perishable nature of my baked goods, those are not returnable (not that you'd want to)! I also cannot accept returns on made-to-order items. If you do experience any problems with a purchase, please let me know within three days of receipt and I'll do my best to make it right. Your satisfaction is VERY important to me! It is my policy to resolve any problems within 30 days of purchase. One last thought on the matter: If you are interested in purchasing shipping insurance, I would be happy to offer it at U.S. Postal Service rates. Just a thought.
Additional policies and FAQs
Any questions you may have, please feel free to ask. There are no silly questions, just unanswered ones! So please don't be shy. I'm not! :-)

***For my NEW International buyers, please note if you wish to purchase multiple patterns PLEASE contact me first and I will find the best possible rate to ship to your country. It just makes sense, and I do not mind a little extra work to help you save money so you can buy the fabric you really want and complete your special project!

So PLEASE send me your location and I will always research the options and give you the choice. Thank you all my new world wide customers! I appreciate you stopping by my little shop and finding something you would love to make!
