Announcement   *~*~*~*~*~ ArtisticallyStitched will no longer be taking custom orders as of November 2013 ~ I am moving in new directions & opening a local business!! Super exciting but also bitter sweet, I love sewing & all the great people I met along the way! But its time to move on. I am NOT closing shop (just yet anyway), just shifting directions. I do plan to keep sewing when I have time although it wont be as often as before. So please keep coming back to see whats happening, & if it all proves to be too much I might shut my doors at a later time. Thank you for all the years of awesomeness, may our paths cross again down the line ~ In peace wendy ~*~*~*~*~*

Hemp Facts: Did you know?

*Hemp fiber offers greater durability and breath ability than cotton, which accounts for 25 percent of the pesticides sprayed on the world's crops.

*Hemp fibers are longer, stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton.

*Fabrics made of at least one-half hemp block the sun's UV rays more effectively than other fabrics.

Please see my profile & polices page for more info on my shop.

::This is just something to think about when buying handmade::


The work of an arti­san is NOT slave labor. It is a state­ment against slave labor. It hon­ors and embraces the spirit of both the cre­ator and the soul for whom the item was intended. It is more than the act of putting pieces together and giv­ing it a fancy name. It is a sense of inten­tion merged with years of ded­i­ca­tion and skill that has cul­mi­nated into the item that you see before you.

Does hand­made make it good? Not necessarily.

Here are a few basic aspects to look for and to con­sider when shop­ping for qual­ity hand­made items:

* What kind of fab­ric has been used to cre­ate this item? Eco­log­i­cally sound fab­rics such as hemp, soy, low water immer­sion dyed, bam­boo, and organic cost sig­nif­i­cantly more because the pesticide-ridden cot­ton indus­try has destroyed the mar­ket for sus­tain­ably raised crops.
* What kind of tech­niques have been employed to cre­ate this item? Was the fab­ric dyed by hand? Was it cut by hand? Was it designed by the per­son who is sell­ing the item?
* What kind of rep­u­ta­tion does the seller have? Pos­i­tive feed­back and happy clien­tele are worth their weight in gold.
* Are you buy­ing the item online from a care­fully writ­ten descrip­tion with clear and accu­rate pho­tos? These ele­ments take a sig­nif­i­cant amount of time to cre­ate as well.

Pay atten­tion to the details. The pur­pose of web­sites like Etsy and Art­fire is to make it easy for small, inde­pen­dent artists to find the peo­ple who are will­ing to pay extra for items made with integrity from care­fully selected mate­ri­als. If it doesn’t make your jaw drop, it prob­a­bly isn’t for you. And if it does, then you bet­ter be ready.

Shipping
***shipping overages***
I try to get my shipping prices as close to actual as possible but with the weight & area the item is being sent to being a factor it is hard to do an exact shipping price for each listing. If there is an overage of $2 or more when I send your item out, I will REFUND the difference :c) **note on shipping refund** if you chose to pay via direct checkout, I can not refund money through that payment...if the shipping overage is more then $2 I will try to include the money inside your package or you can convo me before you purchase with your location so I can get you exact shipping!

*****buying more then one item*****
I do combine shipping, if you would like to buy more then 1 thing then go ahead & shop & wait to pay till I send you a combine invoice!!
~ most of the shipping is just a quote so if you are buying more then one thing, are outside of the usa, or just think it seems high ~ send me a convo & I can give you your shipping options ~ thanks ~

*****International buyers***** shipping will be an actual quote from the post office ~ so please email me before you buy with your shipping info...so I can get a shipping price for you :c) I will adjust the listing before you buy ~ or I can just refund the difference after the item is sent ~ depending on the cost & how you want it sent ~

*****note on shipping US*****

All items are now being shipped regular mail w/ delivery confirmation ~ if you would like a priority mail upgrade just send me a convo & your zip code so I can adjust the price ~ INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL & EXTRA ~ I will not be held liable for an item once I drop it off at the PO ~ if you would like insurance just send me a convo with your zip code & I can adjust the shipping ~ thanks ~
Refunds and Exchanges
*returns*

* because I am selling one of a kind items, at this time I cannot except returns on my handmade clothing due to hemming, custom work, etc... I am not a corporation & don't have the funds to make up for turn around or damage/loss of items.....So, please read the descriptions & feel free to email me with any additional questions you may have, please understand that this is my way of helping bring in extra cash for my family so I just cant afford to have someone buy something & then want a refund because they decide they don't like it or it doesn't fit.....I give exact measurements so PLEASE use them ~ if you have any questions about fit ~ PLEASE email me & I can help you decide if the item is right for you :c) ~

*exchanges*

* if for some reason you get the item & it doesn't fit & you just think that it will not work ~ then in some cases I will allow a exchange ~ exchanges MUST be made within 7 days of receiving your item ~ you MUST email me about the issue so a exchange may be granted ~ at that time ~ you may send the item back (at your expense) shipping MUST be priority mail w/ delivery confirmation & insurance ~ once the item has been received in unworn & the same condition you received it in ~ I will allow a exchange & or credit for something else on the site ~ I want all my customers to be HAPPY with their purchases so I WILL make every effort to work with you if problems arise ~ but please understand that I am a one womyn show ~
