Welcome to the Radical Thread Co. where kids are underfoot, barefoot, and art is a way of life and our living. Turnaround time is currently running about 12 weeks for larger custom wedding orders. Little things can squeak in between when I need a little break and a change of scenery- so they can be shipped out sooner. So give me a shout and we can work it out.

I am so grateful for my discriminating customers who with their love of handmade and ethical shopping support my full-time studio. The Radical Thread Company has been on etsy since 2008! and my home-based shop completely supports our family. If more often than not feels like we live in a factory rather than having a business in our home.
So thank you for your part in that, and for being here on etsy- supporting artists in any shop, it all touches very real worlds and lives of people directly. It is a beautiful thing- supporting grassroots local entrepreneurs and boycotting commercially-made products that are now allowed in the Etsy marketplace. Shop carefully and support the real artists. Feel good about being here, being a discriminating buyer, and for choosing handmade.
Please LIKE us on facebook, PIN us liberally on Pinterest, and spread the word to friends where they can find us. Our success is based SOLEY on this. We have never paid for advertising but are slammed with orders from referrals. We are living proof that businesses can thrive on word of mouth marketing in this era of social media. Our workmanship really speaks for itself (with a little help from our friends) So THANK YOU!


ALL SHIPPING RATES are Priority USPS. They provide tracking.
USA 2-3 days
Canada, EU 6-10 business days
AU 10-14 business days

Shipping upgrades available, including USPS express, priority express and Global Express and all FedEx options.
Shipping downgrades are also offered if you prefer the cheapest possible rate.

Kate is fabulous to work with. True to her reputation, the dress arrived on time and it is beautifully made. I will be 5 months pregnant for my ceremony and having a whole lot of baby belly to show. Kate took appropriate measurements to add some fabric to the front so the dress looks even all the way around. She is very responsive to questions and knowledgeable about different types of fabric. I would highly recommend her.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 13, 2016
The Radical Thread Co is a small family business that is the only day job in the whole family, hence we have had to adopt some policies to protect us from things that are not our fault, such as the darned post office, or the fact that your postman did not deliver the package notice, or that the color of fabric you picked did not convey well on your computer monitor. The problem is, well, I have been sort of a pushover and it needs to stop since it means a crisis whenever I offer a cash refund when something is just well, one of those things... and not something that I did wrong. Now if I did not come through, in any way, that is a different story. I will totally refund your money if for some reason the quality is not acceptable or if it is created in a way that was not agreed to. You know, if I royally mess up, you are covered.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Other Method
Payment
Custom orders require a fabric deposit, and this is not refundable once the fabric is purchased. If the order is canceled before the item is started/finished the project can be canceled except for my materials investment that needs to be covered. This is not a hobby income, but my family's support, so once a transaction is made, or you tell me to purchase the fabric, we are in contract. If for some reason, I cannot complete the project, of course a full refund will be offered. This has not happened to date, but a few people have wanted a refund when they just decided they did not want to get it after all, after I have invested in expensive materials and that, well, needs to not ever happen again, So welcome to my policy section!!! I have recently been burned, quite frequently really, with money orders and checks that did not come through, so paypal is my preferred means of payment.
Shipping
Items are shipped via USPS, generally priority, if shipping charges cover the shipping for such. If not an upgrade can be requested if deadlines are an issue. Otherwise USPS first class will be used. If you need overnight shipping, it can be arranged.
Shipping to Canada and other countries is at the cheapest method.
If I grossly underestimate the shipping to your address I reserve the right to cancel the order, if it is more than a few dollars out of my pocket and you are not willing to pay a little more...some international shipping can be very expensive but it really depends on where you are located and the size.weight of the item. I do my very best to be fair.
Shipping addresses need to be submitted with the order. If this changes, you are responsible for updating the address in a message to me. Confirm that I have received your messge. I do not ship to any other address provided by paypal or at payment but ONLY to the verified address given to me in our messages.
Refunds and Exchanges
Payment due before shipping. No returns on custom items, unless it is something that can be re-sold in my shop realistically. If I have purchased custom fabric for your order, I will not offer a full refund as cut fabric cannot be returned. Since this is my FT work, shop credit or a duplicate item will be offered instead of a cash refund on other shop items.
Should items be lost in the mail, which has happened twice, I cannot be responsible for offering a refund, but I have been known to offer a credit to lessen the blow, but this will have to be a case by case sort of policy. I will do everything in my power to make it right on my end for you, if you do the same. That is all I ask xoxo
Additional policies and FAQs
I do guarantee my work, and will be willing to work out any sort of discrepancies or miscommunication with respect and fairness, but cannot offer blanket, open return policies anymore because a few people have abused it. So work with me and I will do my best to be open, honest, and fair in our exchange.
