Stitching Tales, Carving Dreams

My way to stitching was really long. When a while ago I started making THINGS I was far from creating my embroidered heirloom plushies.

I learned languages in college and worked a little as an interpreter and translator, but suddenly found myself being a full time crafter for over a year by the time I opened Woodland Tale.

Making things is something I always did since my childhood, my Grandma taught me crocheting, embroidery, stitching and mending clothes. I learned to knit myself in homage to my Mom, who did amazing things with yarns and knitting needles. Later I worked in a crafts and hobby shop and I learned how to use many things like paints, mediums on various types of paper and other surfaces.

But what captured me totally was making embroidered critters. I make with love my stitched ones, and I hope you can feel it every time my creation appears in you hands.

The idea that something I did by hand can make someone smile hundreds miles away - what an awesome reward!

Our stamps were introduced in 2014, when Eugen started carving them of rubber - first, for our packaging and paper goods - later for sale.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

THE STAMPS by Eugen. Custom stamps available on request. We do not commission any designs, but can carve a stamp based on our existing imprints or your own image if available.

THE TOYS by Kate. I do not commission any toys on request, but a few personalized listings are available (like pet portraits, personalized hanging ornaments, minor changes in color of embroidery).

Wholesale availability

We don't do wholesales at the moment.

Why the shipping cost for your stamps is so high?

We ship from Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine (Eastern Europe). The price for International Registered Air Mail shipment includes:

- Postal charge, providing full tracking all way from Ukraine and all over the world;
- shipping supplies (envelope, wrapping, and an individual handmade match-box packaging for the order);
- handling costs and shipping risks - like lost, or stolen, or damaged items - if proved (which is easy as we have tracking), we provide either a refund or replacement and take all shipping expenses.

Shipping cost for multiple items is the same for either 1 or 60 stamps, so you can save on multiple item purchase.

The shipping cost is far from being low but at the moment it is the only secure way for us to ship internationally.
