Not a story worth telling

I've been designing and sewing since before I can remember. There are pictures of me at my grandmother's 1963 Singer when I was two years old. That was almost 25 years ago. Now I'm 8 sewing machines deep, with 2 antique Singer treadle machines (a 1910 Red Eye and a 1901 Sphinx), four industrial machines, and the two domestic Janomes I've been sewing on since high school.

    Scooter is the reason I became vegan. It's a long story. Anyways, I want the world for him. He motivates me, keeps me happy, and is my baby, no matter how fat and old he gets. You can thank him for my business.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 10, 2022
I do my best to keep my foster cats and kittens away from fabric, supplies, and completed garments, but it's likely that an errant hair may wind up somewhere in your package. If you are severely allergic to cats, I'm sorry! Also, everything will probably stink of booze and smoke. Just sayin'.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
All sales are final. I do not take returns or give refunds unless I made a huge error in listing the item. I spend hours taking detailed photos and writing item descriptions and garment specs, so you can be confident with your purchase. I will never accept a return if you didn't read the measurements. If you need to resell my clothing, you can use my item descriptions and photos, but please also include photos of the garment in its current condition.
Payment must be recived within 3 days after auction end. I prefer PayPal, but I also take cashier's checks and money orders. Message me upon purchase if you will be mailing your payment. No personal checks, no cash, no exceptions!
Domestic packages are shipped First Class with Delivery Confirmation. International packages are shipped via Airmail. I ship twice a week after payment is cleared. If you need a different shipping method, like shipping insurance, expedited shipping or international tracking, please contact me prior to purchase. Also, I will not take responsibility for the Post Offices' f7ck ups. That's why they provide shipping insurance. Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm proud that I am able to provide one of a kind garments, so please don't ask me to remake any of my pieces (because I won't do it).
