CarefulsCrochet is taking a short break


Note from shop owner Careful's Crochet Corner is taking a short break to finish up Christmas orders and relax for a bit after the busyness of the pre-holiday season. And then of course to restock! I'll be back in the new year with some new listings. I'm still available by message so feel free to send me a conversation if you need anything in the meantime.

My body is falling apart and crocheting holds me together!

Hi, I'm Catherine! Welcome to my crochet corner.

While I spent a lot of time doing arts and crafts as a child, the older I got the busier I became and the less time I spent working with my hands. Throughout high school and university the only crafting I did was sewing ribbons onto my pointe shoes.

Until I got sick. For the last 9 years my body has been falling apart due to a number of chronic illnesses. In 2013 at the age of 21, I became too sick to continue working and going to school and that is when I started to crochet. Honestly I was just worried about getting bored and so I thought it might be fun to have a new hobby. I never imagined where it would lead me!

As my health continued to get worse I spent more and more time crocheting and I quickly learned that it was more than just a side hobby to me. It was productive, it was relaxing, it was rewarding and it was a great creative outlet. It gave me a purpose.

I started Careful's Crochet Corner so that everything I made wouldn't take over the house and so that I could continue funding my yarn addiction and my love of trying new patterns! My shop name comes from my nickname "Careful" but it also reflects the detail and attention I put into everything I make. If I'm not happy with how something turns out then I won't send it to you.

I honestly don't know where I would be if I hadn't decided on a whim to buy a hook and learn how to crochet, but I know that I'm happier and healthier because I did.

I've had to give up so much because of my illness, but when you make a purchase from Careful's Crochet Corner you are helping me take my life back, one stitch at a time. So thank you. And thanks for stopping by my shop!

Returns and exchanges
I hope you love your purchase but if you are not totally satisfied with your item, please contact me within three days of delivery to discuss the problem. I handle returns on a case by case basis. If a return is agreed upon, refunds will be given when items are received back in unused condition within 30 days. Shipping will not be refunded and buyer is responsible for return shipping, the exception being when quality of your order is in question.

Change your mind before your order has shipped? Let me know as soon as possible so we can discuss the possibility of a refund. It will depend on how much work I have already put into your order and whether or not it was a custom order.
I accept credit cards, debit cards and Etsy gift cards. I live in Port Moody, British Columbia and will accept cash if local pick-up is arranged. I also offer local pick-up if you would like to save on shipping costs. To set this up, message me through Etsy or email carefulscrochet [!at]

If your purchase is a made to order item, I will send you a message through Etsy to confirm that I received your order before I begin making it. Once I get an order, I get working on it as soon as I can, but how soon I begin will depend on if I have other orders in progress and if I have the yarn in stock. If you would like to alter or cancel your order, this can definitely be done before I get in touch with you. If you've already heard from me, send me a message anyway and cancellations/alterations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Ultimately, I want my customers to be happy and satisfied so I will try my best to make sure you are!

International buyers are responsible for any customs or import fees that may arise.
I ship with Canada Post and do what I can to package items up in a way that makes for the most cost-effective shipping.

Within Canada:
For smaller items I am able to ship as an over-sized letter which is less expensive but does not include tracking. All other domestic orders are shipped using regular parcel shipping which does include tracking. Canada Post estimates 4 up to 12 days for arrival depending on location.

U.S. Orders:
Tracking number is not included and estimate is 5 to 8 business days for arrival.

I am more than happy to upgrade your shipping if you need an item sooner - please contact me before purchase so I can calculate the cost and arrange this with you.

If you are located outside of Canada or the US you can still order from Careful's Crochet Corner! Shipping is calculated order-to-order depending on your purchase and your location. Please send me a message if you are interested in placing an order and I will be happy to set that up for you.

Multiple items:
It's impossible to foresee every combination of items someone might want to purchase so the "with another item" shipping prices are estimates. If you end up paying extra in shipping I will refund you the difference to the nearest dollar amount. Unless you are requesting a shipping upgrade, I will never charge you more for shipping after you've placed your order. This does not apply to customs or import fees for international orders.

Ready to ship items will be mailed out within 1-2 business days.

For made to order items please allow 1 to 2 weeks for your order to be completed and shipped. There is a good chance it will be ready before that, often within just a few days! If I anticipate it to take longer than 2 weeks for me to have your item ready, I will contact you after your purchase and give you the option of a cancellation and refund.

If you want your order shipped to an address other than the one listed on your Etsy account, be sure to include this in the 'message to seller.' If your purchase is a gift I can ship to the recipient directly provided you give me their address.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need a smaller or larger size or a different color than you see in my shop, I am happy to make it! Please message me to arrange the order.

I do accept custom orders and enjoy being part of making your vision come to life. Send me a message about what you're looking for and let's see if we can make it happen!

All items are made in a smoke-free and pet-free home.
