My Crafty Life.

I have always loved sewing, knitting and crochet having been taught these skills by my mum. I first started making clothes for myself in the 1970's and relished the freedom to express my individuality by choosing my own style and fabrics.

In recent years I have put a lot of my energies into knitting and crochet but after watching The Great British Sewing Bee on TV I have now returned to my passion for sewing. I have a personal collection of vintage sewing patterns and want to give others the opportunity to create their own retro style. I am now working on having a completely me-made wardrobe as possible!

Many things I have made have also been embellished with embroidery and I love tapestry as well. I try to find iron-on transfers or embroidery items during my searches for sewing patterns and offer these for sale as they are available.

Sustainability is important to me and being able to use a pre-loved item fit this ethos. I was brought up to minimise waste as much as possible. If an item can be re-purposed instead of buying new it was actively encouraged. I had many happy hours in charity shops with my Mum and still do the same with my sister!

    My mum taught me to sew when I was quite young and all through high school and college I made my own clothes. Any bought clothes were also embellished as I love my individuality!

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are placed in zip-lock bags to protect them. Most items are dispatched in waterproof mailing bags but should more protection be required I also use hard-back envelopes or padded envelopes. Packaging will be re-cyclable wherever possible.

If there are any issues with the condition your package arrives in please let me know so that matters can be resolved.

Postage

All items are posted First Class/Air Mail. Items of higher value are sent 'Tracked and Signed For' and carry the appropriate insurance. If you require a postage upgrade please let me know and I will arrange a special listing for you to include this.

Orders not Received

If you have not received your order within 2 weeks of placement please let me know. I obtain proof of postage so will do my best to track your missing item. Should your still not receive it 30 days from ordering, it will be considered lost and you will be entitled to a refund.
