About

I love to sew and I enjoy trying oodles of new crafts !

Sewing has always been a part of my life. It is a relaxing yet creative outlet. For a while I sewed for interior decorators making pillows, curtains and kitchen linens. I worked with a dry cleaner doing custom sewing, mending, bridal fittings and general tailoring. I worked at a quilt shop, added quilting to my list of fun. I also worked at a store sewing Amish mens pants and shirts. And at home, I sewed for the family.
In addition to crafts, I create oodles of pincushions, selling to quilt shops across the United States. We have a website (www.OodlesofPincushions.com) for bulk orders and our Etsy shop (OodlesOfWhimsy.etsy.com) for smaller orders. I published a book, "The ABCs of Sewing"; one of our sons assisted with graphics and computer formatting :)
If you ever need a sewn item, a gift for a quilter, a new pincushion for yourself or oodles of them, I hope you'll visit Oodles Of Whimsy.
It was 'sew' nice of you to stop by and read my story !
~We have a second Etsy shop for Vintage and Antique goodies: OodlesOfVintage.etsy.com
~I'd be honored to have you visit my blog (http://www.blog.oodlesofpincushions.com)
You'll find info there about selling your crafts, interviews with folks who work from home, sewing references and more.
~I gladly take CUSTOM ORDERS for the colors or themes you want and offer BULK RATES :) Let me know how I can accommodate you.

    I love the sewing part of this business the best :) I also cut, stuff and assemble items, then photograph and list them in the shop.

    Tim set up my book: managed the graphics and created the cover design so it was absolutely camera-ready to 'go to print'. He built our website and blog and is the technical advisor.

We mostly ship (small items) using USPS and have wonderful service and rapport with them. If there is a need for refund due to damage/handling through the Post Office, please contact us within 5 days of receipt to start a claims process. We will need a photo of the broken/damaged item received and the damaged container it came in. Please save these as they are required by the P.O. Claims Dept. We will refund your purchase price and shipping fees in cases of damage.

**In the case of customized and personalized items such as Handwritten Letters, Personalized Photos and Keepsake Pillow listings; these are non-returnable/no refunds for a 'change of mind'.

**If your item does not arrive in a timely manner, feel free to contact us and we will jump through hoops to locate your package. If the package falls into the "lost" category, we will contact our local PO and yours to see if it can be traced. Items not found in a reasonable time (up to 6 weeks, as determined by our local Post Office) will be replaced or refunded, item price plus the shipping cost paid. FYI: We have never had a truly "lost" package. :)

**GOOD NEWS for those with sensitivity issues to odors and animals: Our home is non-smoking and we have no pets :)
Shipping
Your item(s) will be carefully packaged; using recycled materials as much as possible; and shipped out asap, typically within 2 business days. YES, we can combine shipping to save you money. Buyers outside the Continental U.S. are sometimes subjected to customs delays, taxes and fees which we have no control over ~so sorry about that ! The Buyer is responsible for any additional import charges, VAT or taxes due.
*Please check that your Etsy and Paypal shipping address is current as the one provided is where your order will be sent to. If you provide an incorrect shipping address you waive the rights to refunds or replacements.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of the shop items can be customized (color, fabric, ring size). We welcome your queries ! If the supplies are not already at hand, there may be a slight delay. If big changes are needed, a small fee may be quoted to be added to the selling price.

We are also able to produce bulk orders on many items, matching themes or colors for your Wedding Party, Shower or other Event. Bulk orders receive a discount whether you need 5 or 500 pieces. Please contact us for a quote on your custom order :)
