About

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 graphic fabric toys.

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 dolls. I make with love my stitched ones, woodland jewelry and fancy button art treasures 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 a child 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.

_______________________________________________________________

We send all orders as a small package (petite paquet) which means the postman will come to your door and give it to you personally and you will sign for it. If you won't be at home at that moment, they will leave you a notice to pick up a mail piece from the post office. I'm sorry if it sounds a little bit too complicated, but sometimes the those notices are lost in other mail and the addressee doesn't know that something is waiting to be picked up at the post office. So, please, keep an eye on your mail box :)

SPECIAL NOTE to US buyers: The delivery of international parcels with weight acceding 1 pound (lb) may may take longer time than estimated (approximately, +1-2 weeks on top of standard delivery time). We appreciate your understanding.

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.
