About

Generations in The Making

I have some amazing women in my family to thank for passing on the sewing bug. When I was little, I used to sit alongside my grandma and great aunt and help them make all kinds of things — pillows, Christmas stockings and ornaments, doll clothes and so on. It’s a really sweet memory.

Forward to just a few years ago when I decided I wanted to pick it up again. It had been a very long time since I sat behind a sewing machine and I wondered if I would remember how to work it at all. After taking a few classes at a local art center here in Chicago, I was convinced I had retained some of that skill passed on to me and that I really liked doing it.

When it comes to the items I make, it really is based on the things I would love to have or carry. I love purses, so I make a lot of those. I’ve found that the hardest part, oddly enough, is picking out the fabric. There are just way too many amazing choices out there. But playing with the colors and patterns I find is the real thrill. I love spending time with the fabrics I find and discovering combinations that are really cute. Or, I love taking blank fabric and painting it to make it my own. Making things that are unique and can’t be found anywhere else is my goal. And, yes, I pretty much want to keep everything I make. So that means I better make two of each!

Payment
Thimble & Tag accepts PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout. All orders must be paid at the time of purchase.

Cancellations for ready to ship items:
If for any reason you need to cancel a ready to ship order, a refund will be honored, as long we are notified prior to us shipping out the item (We generally ship out the morning of the next business day). Once it is in the hands of the USPS, we will be unable to cancel any orders, and you will have to go through the refund and return process (as outlined in the "Returns and Exchange Details" section, above).

Cancellations for custom orders:
If for any reason you need to cancel a custom order, a refund MINUS 25% will be honored ONLY IF the item has not yet been shipped. Once it is in the hands of the USPS, we will be unable to cancel or refund any custom orders. Please refer to the terms in the "Refunds and Exchanges" section for more information on this.
Shipping
We always strive to mail out items the morning of the next business day, but in general, please allow 1-3 business days (unless otherwise noted) for processing & shipping of items.

We ship to the address that is input into Etsy, so PLEASE make sure this is correct before submitting your order. Failure to do so will result in packages being returned to sender. If this happens, we will not be responsible for the cost of shipping back to you- we will ask that you pay for shipping for a second time, after we receive the item back in the mail.

All packages are shipped USPS. If you would like yours mailed out some other way, please let us know prior to purchasing and we can work something out. Although all packages will have a tracking number, please note that we do not have control over the USPS, and cannot guarantee delivery on a specific day. However, if you absolutely need something shipped Express, please let us know PRIOR to your purchase, so you may upgrade to Express mail for a fee. Thank you!

INTERNATIONAL orders:
Thimble & Tag is located in the USA. Import duties, taxes, and charges from the buyer's country are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.

Also, international orders can take extra time to deliver due to Customs. Unfortunately, there's no way to determine it. It could take 2 weeks, or 6 months. Since we ship by USPS, for some countries, the tracking number is only available while the item is within the US. If you'd like a tracking number for the entire duration of delivery, please convo us before purchasing so that we can work out another form of shipping. Thanks!

Privacy
Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies (UPS, FedEx, or U-Pic Shipping Insurance, for example). I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 2 calendar years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Megan Mensinga, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at megan [!at] thimbleandtag.com. Alternately, you may mail me ~ please contact me via email for my mailing address.
