Hi! And Welcome to Pearls and Patchwork!
I create all the handmade items you see in my shop right here in my home sewing studio. Here in Kentucky we have a long tradition of making handmade creations. My family, both of my parents, myself and my husband are all creative to the core. We have always enjoyed working with our hands to craft unique items. My Mother was an award winning quilter. And I have won my share of blue ribbons at our Kentucky State Fair for my handbags, unique stuffed animals, dolls, and doll costumes. We have all sold our crafts at church bazaars and other craft sales for many years.

Quality was instilled in me from an early age, and I do my best to create items that will last for many years. Every item I make is one of a kind, unique, and special to me. Some are hard to part with. I think you will appreciate the care and attention to detail that I put into my work.

I have many years of retail experience with textiles. I also have a Bachelors Degree in Education from the University of Louisville. I have been an educator, a quilter, a doll-maker, a sign maker, and a seamstress.

I hope you enjoy shopping in my etsy shop.
Take a glimpse my world. Heart my shop and return often.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my listings.
I am always willing to take special orders and special requests.

About

A Tale of Pearls and Patchwork

Hi! My name is Lois. I'm the shop owner and creator here at Pearls and Patchwork.

Thanks for checking out my profile! I'm a gal who loves to sew and do crafts. I enjoy life, and have lots to be thankful for... every new day is a blessing.

I have always enjoyed sewing and creating. My Mother taught me how to crochet, knit, and sew when I was a small child. I inherited my love of sewing and crafting from her... She could do anything! <3 She was so talented, and won many ribbons for her quilting and sewing at our Kentucky State Fair. She encouraged me to enter my finished projects, and I have won quite a few ribbons myself. :) I'm still at it... These days I make handbags, fleece blankets, and lots of cat toys, (I grow my own catnip.) I also create lots of other items. Many of them wind up here for sale. There's always something fun and interesting to do here in my little workshop.

I have a sewing room above my garage...where I keep my stash of fabrics, patterns, and notions. That's where I do all my creating...and when I make a big mess I can just leave it until I go back to continue with my project.

I love to re-purpose and recycle. I frequent thrift stores and yard sales looking for interesting textures, and fun materials that can be used along with new fabrics and trims to create something fabulous that you might enjoy.

In my sewing room...my fat cat "Mimi" helps me when I sew and craft. She especially loves to hold down my patterns while I'm cutting out projects. :) My kitten "Gabbie" is my cat toy tester (and entertainment while I sew.) You can usually find me listening to NPR while I craft and sew...keeping up with my world events. :)

I hope you like my creations... and the sewing supplies, patterns, and craft books listed here. Please look at my listings often.... I will be adding new items as often as time allows. And I always try to keep my prices affordable.

Thanks for visiting my little Etsy shop...
Lois...

Shipping
Items are very carefully packaged to prevent bending and breakage during shipping!
I will ship your purchase in 1 to 3 days (business days). I do not ship on weekends. This shipping time begins the day after your order is placed. If you need me to ship it faster, please let me know. I will do everything I can to meet your requirements. There may be additional postage fees depending on your special request.

All USA shipping quotes include shipping to the CONTINENTAL US only. There will be an additional postage fee for shipment to; Hawaii and Alaska. Please contact me prior to your purchase so that I can provide you with a shipping quote to Hawaii and Alaska.

I ship all packages that weight 13 oz or less, using USPS First Class. I ship all packages over 13 oz., USPS Parcel Post or USPS Priority depending on the package size/weight, expected delivery, ship to address, and delivery date estimate .

I do try to minimize wasteful production and whenever possible and appropriate; I use recycled boxes, bubble wrap and newspaper to ship my items.

I highly recommend upgrades if you are in an area or country with unreliable mail service; once the USPS takes possession of your package, it is no longer under my control and I cannot be held liable for mail service problems.
