Yacket USA/ Eternal Threads: From Brick and Mortar to Cyberspace
YacketUSA began life as a brick & mortar store.
The reason I opened the shop was because there wasn't a craft/sewing store within forty miles of my home. I knew I wasn't the only person who would benefit from having a local craft store. Right from the start, the shop was a huge success.
After being in business for six months, I decided to try selling on Etsy and immediately realized it was a great decision!
Almost all of my shop inventory is now listed and I try to add at least several new items daily.
The shop name and logo, "Yacket USA/ Eternal Threads" is a blend of classic and modern: the classic Lady Liberty wearing a golden crown and a modern striped bandana in magenta, white, and cyan with a single silver star – Hippie-style.
The perfect symbol for my shop, where you can find modern, classic, and everything in between!
I love shopping and love searching out great new finds to pass on to my discerning customers.
I have three Etsy shops:
My Supply shop inventory consists of mostly supplies for needlework and sewing. 100% cotton fabric in great colors and designs. I realized early on that it would be impossible for me to carry EVERY new fabric that came along so, I decided to focus on mainly children's fabrics, coordinating solids, and primary and pastel colored prints.
My four best-selling items seem to be 1) Cotton Fabric, 2) Sewing Patterns, 3) Catania Yarn, and 4) DMC Embroidery floss.
In my Vintage shop, I have a large selection of vintage fabrics - cotton, polyester, and blends, vintage patterns - sewing, cross stitch, and craft, and a growing assortment of vintage collectables - ash trays, glassware, figurines.
Vintage collectables seem to be the best sellers in this shop.
My handmade shop is the place I collect and display items that I have made, like baby quilts, crocheted hats, scarves, and blankets, soft toys, and dolls and doll clothes. The materials that I use in my handmade items are available for sale in my Supply shop.
Everyone loves my little crocheted poodle dogs made using the Catania cotton yarn manufactured by SMC.
My shop curator, Sweet Pea, is a talking European Starling. I rescued him just over four years ago after he fell out of his nest, which was out of my reach and in "cat territory" so I had no choice but to adopt him and be his new mommy.
He is great company when I am alone in the shop and he always makes me smile.
You can see and hear him "in person" here:
He has a wonderful personality and I am so thankful that he found me.
I am so grateful that I have this opportunity to work with so many crafty folks on Etsy, to share in the wonderful world of on-line selling, and to meet so many nice people – sellers and buyers alike.
If there is anything special you are looking for, don't hesitate to send me a message - If I don't have it, I will do my best to find it for you!
Thank you, again, for visiting my shop.
The door is always open, please come back soon and often!
Around the web
Sweet Pea is a talking European Starling who was rescued as an infant, by Sandy, three years ago this June. He has a vocabulary of more than 100 words and phrases. He keeps things running smoothly in the shop, greets customers, and gives kisses.
Sandy is an All-American girl, sprouted in Yankeeland, transplanted to the Deep South, and is blooming beautifully in the second half of her life. Creating, finding, and sharing beautiful, unique items are her passion.

YacketUSA is a cat-free shop, but my shop is in my cat-friendly home and I, often travel between the two. I take great care in inspecting my items before shipping for stray cat hairs. It is possible that one or two may pass me by. For this reason, if you have a cat allergy, you may want to shop elsewhere.

*There is a 4 pound limit on International shipping
Accepted payment methods
If you live in Tennessee, I'm sorry but, I have to charge you sales tax (darn old Uncle Sam has to get his piece of the action).
If you must cancel an order, please notify me immediately since I can not cancel after the order has been shipped.
Payment is expected within 3 days of purchase. If you need an extension, please contact me. I will contact you by Etsy convo if payment is not received after3 days. If I do not receive a response from you, the sale will be canceled and the item relisted.
"Shipped with another item" listing charges are not written in stone. Since it is impossible for me to know what your other items will be, or weigh, this cost is on *over estimate*. Any money paid by you for shipping that is more than $2.00 over actual cost will immediately refunded to you through PayPal.
Please note that for orders shipped outside the US and Canada that our shipping fee does not cover import duties, fees and taxes. Upon delivery, the recipient will be required to pay these additional costs.

Refunds and Exchanges
Items listed as "Vintage" are not new items and therefore may show signs of age, wear, musty odor etc... I try to describe these items to the best of my ability. Please ask questions *before* you purchase.
Generally, vintage items are non-returnable/non-refundable. However, I can be flexible on this if it is justifiable.
As color monitors vary, I can not take a return if the colors are not exactly what you see on your computer...although, I do my best to post photos that are as true to the actual colors as possible.
Insurance will be applied to breakable items and certain other orders.
**Please note: if you neglect to select a color, where applicable, say for yarn, and I have to cancel the order if you don't respond to my inquiry, there will be a fee deducted from your refund equal to the PayPal transfer fee that is charged to me. **
Please be sure to make a color selection!
