About

Catalpa? What's a catalpa?

My shop is named for the large graceful catalpa tree that is the focal point of my garden, offering a home for squirrels, shade for the house on hot summer days, and an abundance of compost from its generous supply of big, juicy leaves. My shop cover photo is a closeup of its fragrant flowers. When this regal tree is in full bloom, I am filled with joy from it's sweet scent and the petal "snow" that drifts softly onto the lawn.

Here in my little Etsy shop, I offer you garden themed and seasonal stitch markers for knitting and crochet, stitch marker holders, and beaded fine thread crochet suncatchers hand made by me as a pleasant way to pass the time in my retirement.

In the hot days of summer, I crochet fine thread suncatchers and snowflake Christmas tree ornaments on my back porch, while watching the hummingbirds visit the crocosmia. Then I sew in crystal beads to remind us of the summer sun's brilliance when cold winter weather brings us indoors and the days shorten.

As winter settles in, I move inside and switch my focus from weeding to beading, offering the results here for your pleasure and amusement. Hopefully, you might find something you'd like to take home to celebrate your own garden adventures.

I hope you enjoy your visit!

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I want you to be a happy customer. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please contact me to let me know. I will accept a return for a full refund including shipping costs, if the reason for the return is a flaw in workmanship or damage in transit.
Shipping
Save Shipping Costs for Multiple Items:
For smaller items (stitch markers and holders) there is no additional shipping charges for multiple items. Your parcel can contain up to 100g of goods for the same shipping cost as one stitch marker.

For in stock items, your order will be shipped as soon as possible after your payment has cleared and shipping information has been received, usually 1-2 business days. Shipping charges cover the cost to package and send your item (bubble mailer plus postage). Any combined shipping overpayment of $1 or more will be refunded as soon as the actual costs have been determined.

Tracking:
Most of my items are small and light, and can be sent anywhere in Canada by Canada Post Lettermail in a bubble mailer as an 'Oversized' Letter, which you should receive in 2-6 business days. International orders will be sent by "light packet" air mail. Assuming there is no holdup in customs, you should receive your package in 6-10 business days to the US and most other international destinations.

None of these methods have a tracking option, so I would appreciate a brief note to let me know when you receive your package.

If you want tracking and insurance for your item, it would be necessary to upgrade your shipment to parcel post (domestic) or tracked packet (international). Please contact me before you purchase, for an updated shipping quote. Be aware that shipping with international tracking can be very expensive.
Additional policies and FAQs
Customs and duty charges:
International customers please note that payment of any duties, customs fees or taxes levied by your country when you receive your item will be your responsibility.
