About

Not Just "Good Enough"

As a middle child in a large military family, I was taught that no job is worth doing unless it is done well. That applied not only to chores, but also to the special times when I could sit with my talented mother and grandmother at the sewing machine. We had to earn the privilege of using the wonderful old Singer sewing machine (which we still have), by demonstrating that we respected the machine, knew how to keep it running smoothly, and by taking our time to do the job right. Materials were precious to our large family, and our clothes were mostly homemade. We were often the envy of our classmates and friends, because Mom applied every detail with skilled perfection, and passed that knowledge on to her daughters.

She tells me I make her proud, and that is the best compliment I could ever receive. The pure enjoyment of taking a piece of fabric and turning it into a useful and unique item is achieved only through patience, love of the craft, the seeking of perfection, and...some pretty challenging math skills! Yep, right along side my scissors at the cutting table are rulers, calculators, graph paper - you name it!

PW Originals - Where "good enough" is not good enough.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PW Originals is currently accepting payments made only through Paypal to avoid any lingering issues Etsy is experiencing with their Direct Checkout system. I am required to collect 5.3% sales tax on sales within the State of Virginia, which will be added at the time of purchase.

International customers: As a US based seller, PWOriginals is not registered for collecting VAT or any import fees at time of your purchase. Those charges will be levied and collected by the customs office in your country.
Shipping
I ship to your address on file with your Etsy account, so please make sure it's correct! Shipping to the US will be by USPS Priority or First Class mail with delivery confirmation. Orders shipped outside the US may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. These charges must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these fees and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; please contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take great care in describing, measuring, and capturing the right colors in photographs. If you have any questions before purchasing, please contact me so I can get any additional information you need.

Returns of undamaged, non-custom merchandise are generally accepted if prior approval is given and mailed back to me within 7 days of receipt of order. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs unless order was lost, received damaged, or was incorrectly sent (see below). When return is received and inspected, full credit for the cost of the item, less shipping costs, will be refunded to you according to the payment method used for your purchase.

If your order is damaged or incorrectly sent, please contact me immediately for additional instructions on full reimbursement of item and all related shipping costs or replacement. Your concerns will be handled quickly and with great care!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom work is welcome and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. I would be more than happy to make basic changes such as switching out fabric, changing a strap, etc., when possible. Please contact me with any questions regarding custom work!
