The price, quality and speedy response to questions make this purchase a win win! I don't know why anyone would shop anywhere else for this type of product.

I have purchased kits from Prigruace before which is why I am a returning customer. They can't be beat...price, quality, clarity and detail of instructions and personal customer service. It's a pleasure dealing with Michelle.

About

When I was unable to find crewel embroidery stocking kits to make for my grandchildren at a reasonable price, I decided to create my own!

Having made crewel embroidery Christmas stocking kits for my children 30 years earlier, I began searching for kits to make stockings for my grandchildren. It was then that I discovered most companies discontinued Christmas stocking kits in crewel embroidery. After more searching, I discovered the kits from the 70's and 80's were still available, but at outrageous prices!! After a few years of grumbling, I approached a couple of different family members who had artistic abilities to have them draw pictures on fabric for me so that I could make stockings for my grandchildren and other relatives. I received so many compliments and requests, I decided to take it a step further by developing those stockings into kits.

Being a high school graduate who worked as a legal secretary, this entire process was an education. I could not have done it without the input, help and support of friends and family, as well as the many resources available on the internet.

Each and every sale is still a thrill for me. I have three goals. My number one goal will always be customer satisfaction. I will never forget that without my customers, I would not have a business. My second goal is to keep my prices affordable for all. My third goal is to bring the love of crewel embroidery to the next generation.

UPDATE: After battling kidney cancer for over 2 years, my husband of 27 years passed away in May, 2015. I am concentrating on healing and spending time with family. I continue to mail out kits as they are ordered and answer questions as I am contacted by my customers. I have not put much effort in assembling kits; therefore, some of my most popular designs are sold out, with many soon to follow. Please check in from time-to-time to see if I have replenished any sold out kits. I hope to be back up and running with renewed dedication, as well as new designs, in 2016. Thank you for your understanding.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Direct Checkout and PayPal. For Ohio residents only, a 7.5% sales tax (based on the tax rate in my county of residence) will be added to your purchase.
Shipping
I commit to shipping in 3-5 business days; however, I generally have packages in the mail within two (2) business days. Packages are mailed via U.S.P.S. Priority Mail at my cost.

Please take a moment to check your address for accuracy and completeness.
Refunds and Exchanges
I carefully describe each of my kits and provide photographs of the finished product, as well as the contents of my kits. I have sold nearly 350 kits and have only had 2 returns, neither of which were related to an inaccuracy in my listing, nor the quality of the kit.

Once a kit has been opened, I can no longer maintain my guarantee of smoke-free, pet-free. I cannot guarantee the kit is intact. Further, unless a kit were to come back to me in pristine condition, I am required to reprint and repackage it for resale. Therefore, returns are not accepted, nor are refunds issued. I am, however, happy to send additional photos if necessary and answer any questions prior to your purchase.
