Note from shop owner I am closed for the weekend. I will reopen Monday.

Even though my shop is closed for the weekend and I am not accepting new orders I am still working on current orders to make sure they are completed and mailed within my 1-2 week production and shipping time.

Ready to ship appliques and shirts will be dropped off at the post office within 2-3 business days of the purchase date. This does not include shipping time. Shipping times vary but First-Class within the United States usually takes 3-5 business days.

Please check the ship by date in the upper right hand corner of your receipt and then add about 3-5 business days for shipping to that date.

If you have any questions you can still contact me through Etsy's email. Click on "Contact Shop Owner" on the left hand side of your screen under where it says, "Have a question?".

About

The Buzzing Bee Is Always Busy

I enjoy designing, sewing and creating DIY appliques and ready to ship appliqued children's birthday shirts. The possibilities are endless when I tap into my creative side so I opened The Yellow Bumble Bee on Etsy. The inspiration for my shop is partly my mother who taught me to sew as a teenager and blessed me with her creative genes and my mother-in-law, Alice, who also has a shop on Etsy selling beautifully made eighteen inch doll clothes. Her workmanship and design abilities are amazing. Here is a link to her shop:

The other part of my inspiration for The Yellow Bumble Bee comes from almost thirty years of teaching and caring for children of all ages and abilities. The Yellow Bumble Bee is my way of creatively giving back all the joy and love the children I have worked with have given me.

I love making an applique or birthday shirt for a friend's child or grandchild and drawing inspiration for the design from what this particular child enjoys. Drawing inspiration from a child and their interests and then making them an applique or shirt that reflects their interests makes the creative process much more meaningful.

I want to say thank you to my mother, mother-in-law and of course the ladies at Joann Fabric and Craft Stores for helping me understand the materials and techniques that go into creating my appliques and shirts. Applique is such an exciting design technique because I can use the beauty of each piece of fabric to create my own design.

I really believe every customer will find pleasure in my designs and a practical use for my appliques and shirts. I wanted to create something that is not only visually pleasing but also has a practical use.

I look forward to providing all my customers with excellent customer service and a beautiful well made applique or shirt.

Thank you,

Stephanie
