Phoebe's Treasures

Using my hands to create gifts for others has always been fun and provides a stress release from the daily work of my full time job. Those gifts that I make have changed over time from crafts to wonderful quilts. As times change, fewer gifts are exchanged between friends and family, but I cannot give up my love of crafting. Now, I offer some of those same gifts in my shop for others to enjoy.

If you live in the Sonoma County area in Northern California, or even come to visit, I also sell some of my items in the Made Local Marketplace -- a store front location for local artists to sell the items they make. It is a wonderful place to buy handmade goods and local foods. Check it out at or better yet, stop by the store.

I recently started adding fabric, supplies and tools that I have purchased but not used. Most items are new and in original packaging. Some of the cross stitch kits have been started, but never complete. All items are clean and ready to pass on for someone else to enjoy.

    Sewing and crocheting seem to have always been a part of my life. I am always making gifts for family and friends for almost every occasion. Let me make something special for you, or your family and friends.

    I have made many things from doll clothes & stuffed toys for my children's Christmas gifts to school clothes. I spend my time crocheting or knitting. My friends love the dressed baby dolls, and I also make doilies, covered hangers, and afghans.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 4, 2016
Although a small shop, and not widely known, I enjoy making these special handmade gifts, so I continue managing this little hobby. My other passion is birding, and the "Phoebe" is a small bird that darts back and forth to catch its food. I have a Black Phoebe that frequents my backyard that is wonderful to watch.

My shop is full of handmade gifts for children and adults, each made using the best quality materials available locally. I also have several listings that include patterns, fabric, embroidery kits, and other supplies that I own but are not using or planning to use. After moving last year, I will be expanding this part of my store as I continue to downsize. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.

Shipping costs are estimated based on past sales and include incidental costs such as packaging and handling. USPS Priority Mail now includes up to $50 of insurance coverage for items mailed at that rate. If a fragile item requires more insurance it will be reflected in a higher shipping cost. Otherwise, I do not add insurance to items purchased from my shop. If you want additional insurance, please let me know.

All items will be sent via USPS mail at the lowest shipping cost available at the time of purchase.

Any orders placed after December 20th are not guaranteed by the USPS to be delivered before Christmas Day. During the month of December shipping times will be longer due to the volume of mail processed by the USPS. If you want something faster, please let me know, and I will set up a reserved order for you with a 2-day flat rate priority mail option or an overnight option. These options will increase the total cost for shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me. Ultimately, I will take any handmade item back for a return. Destash fabrics, fabric panels, patterns, tools, all kits, and other supplies are NOT returnable.

You can buy from Phoebe's Treasures with the confidence that all items are quality-made and presented accurately in the photos of the item. If you have any questions, at any time, about any item, please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Some of my items can be special ordered. All special orders require a minimum four weeks lead time for completion, which is especially important for crocheted gifts or large quantities. Even though I love making these items, I do still work full time, so my free time is not as free as I would like. I am happy to work with you on timeframes that meet your life celebrations -- just contact me.

Most of my pillowcases are made in pairs, and the purchase price is the price for two pillowcases. Each pair of pillowcases is unique, and it is extremely rare that I make more that one pair of pillowcases exactly the same. However, custom requests are always encouraged. If you are interested in single pillowcases or in a specific theme, I can provide you options along with estimated time frames.

Any special requests will be set up with a reserved listing before I start making the items.

All of my handmade items are made with attention to detail. However, that does not mean that the items are perfect. All handmade items are unique and may include seams that are not straight, topping stitching that is not perfectly even or thread that has not been trimmed. These are all minor differences in the final product and are part of what makes these items unique. You can carefully trim any excessive threads with a small pair of scissors.
