About RubyPatch

On Etsy since 2012

Pretty things, sewn with love.

I have loved needlecraft since I was a little girl. I have drifted from one discipline to another over the years, slowly learning new skills and becoming hooked on them before moving on to the next. If I think back, I have probably tried just about every needlecraft possible but there are some favourites I always seem to return to.

Patchwork was my passion for a number of years and I think that this particular craft started my obsession with collecting fabrics. My stash is small in comparison to many I have seen online, but I love it dearly and almost begrudge using any of the really pretty fabrics. Perhaps this is why my current love affair with applique is so consuming! I can use very small amounts of my lovely stash to paint my pictures against a more neutral background.

As if the applique wasn't enough, I have also been able to enhance it with free motion machine embroidery. I never considered myself to be much of an artist but I find that when 'painting' with my sewing machine, I am blissfully happy.

As you can imagine, working full time as a management accountant can be stressful and tiring but producing my little works of art on evenings and weekends is the perfect antidote.

Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you find something here that you like.

Thank you for visiting Ruby Patch. All of my items are designed and handmade by me. Most items feature raw edge applique and free motion embroidery and therefore no two items will be exactly the same.

I use many different fabrics in my designs and therefore, although the design you order will be provided, there may be some variation in the fabrics that make up the design. These variations will be slight and you will be contacted if any major substitution of fabrics or colours is necessary.

I hope you find that unique item you are searching for but, if not, please contact me as I am happy to create bespoke items.

Payment

I accept payments by both Paypal and by credit or debit card using Direct Checkout.

On receipt of your payment, I will send a confirmation email to inform you of the estimated dispatch date. You will then receive an email when your order is posted informing you of the postal service that has been used and the estimated delivery time.

You are responsible for any import taxes that may be due on receipt of your goods.

Shipping

Your order will be posted using Royal Mail within the UK. International orders will be posted using Royal Mail international services and will therefore use a variety of other postal companies. Your order may require a signature on delivery.

Please note that I will inform you of the estimated delivery time on your dispatch notification email but I cannot be held responsible for delays caused by the postal services.

Should you require an upgraded postal service due to the urgency of an order, please contact me at time of order to discuss this. It may result in a higher postage cost than is quoted online. This will be confirmed by email with you and payment requested before the order will commence. Where possible, I am happy to try to accelerate orders if required. Please discuss this with me if you require it.
