    Owner, Curator, Customer Service

    I grew up loving watching/wearing clothes made by mom. Teens/early '20s brought SFO/NYC print modeling. While learning how to mom two spectacular sons, I also started sewing myself. Sewing is what I love to do - that and sewing patterns. :)

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each purchase is sent to you in packaging that will keep it secure and safe.
(If your purchase is for someone else, it can be customized just for your recipient and the order slip omitted.)

Northwoods Tahoe goes the extra mile with excellent customer service and attention to details for you to enjoy.

the pattern size number is much different than
retail ready-made clothing:
Measurements are listed in the description of each item and also can be found when perusing the photos.

Sewing Pattern Condition

Sewing patterns:
Always complete.

conditions vary greatly.
The patterns and directions will always be in new or like-new condition regardless of the envelope quality.

***Although we check all patterns multiple times before it gets offered to you, if you ever get a pattern that is not complete, you will receive a pattern sent to you with our compliments.***

Always great condition.
If there is a slight imperfection, it will be noted in photos and the price will reflect it.

International Shipping

Even when I scoot your pattern out in one day of your order, First Class International shipping takes time and there seem to be a lot of variables like weather etc.

If you would like your pattern shipped in a more timely manner, please select one of these options:

Priority Mail Express International (3-6) days

Priority Mail International (6-10 days)

When your pattern ships, Etsy sends an email to you that includes a tracking number that will keep you abreast of everything.
