Announcement   Affordable crocheting and knitting yarns, crochet hooks, and one of a kind wearable art pieces, all at affordable prices. New yarns are always arriving!

I carry a wide variety of yarns and threads from various manufacturers and am always on the lookout for yarns that are not the 'run of the mill' that you will find in your local craft shops.

NOTE: Between July 22nd and July 29th I will be undergoing some medical treatments and will have limited internet access during that time. I will make every attempt to answer inquiries as soon as possible. Items purchased before the close of business on July 22nd will be shipped on Monday July 25th. Items purchased between July 23rd and July 29 will be shipped on July 30.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Although some yarns may only have a limited colour range or quantity listed, I may have more available. Many of the yarns that I stock I can special order (at no additional charge). And if you don't see what you are looking for, please feel free to ask.

Unless otherwise noted in the individual listings all the yarns are commercially produced and dyed. Many of the photos show multiple balls of yarns. This is done so that you can see exactly how the colours will look with different light angles. Please be sure to read the description to see exactly how many balls the listing is for.

Because I do as much as possible to offer a wide selection of yarns at very reasonable prices, I do not offer any further discounts unless you are purchasing yarns by the case pack. Case packs are available by custom order only. Or, a 10% discount coupon can be applied if the total of your order (excluding shipping) is more than $100. The coupon code is 10PERCENT100.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I love to design and to share my crocheted creations with the rest of the world. Each piece is made with the utmost attention paid to details. All wearables are individually numbered and logged. Unless otherwise noted the pieces listed are ready to ship, but I can do any of the pieces in a different colour or size. Please feel free to contact me with your requirements.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The majority of the listings have been set up with a reduced shipping charge for multiple items. If you are interested in purchasing multiple items, the shipping cost for 'with another item' will apply to all subsequent items. Here's a quick outline of how combined shipping works.
http://www.etsy.com/help/article/191

In the event that what you have paid is less than the actual cost, I pay the difference. Unfortunately when it comes to larger orders, Etsy does not seem to calculate the shipping very well. I will manually review shipping charges all larger orders and manually issue refunds for any overages as needed.

About

Crochetgal ... Affordable Luxury

Although I learned the art of crochet as a teenager in the 70s, it fell by the wayside as my life adventure took its path.

It resurfaced again at the start of the new millenium with one little Winnie the Pooh for a friend's grandchild as a Christmas gift. Before Winnie could even be delivered to that little one, friends were asking to purchase them from me. Little did I know that it would eventually turn into a small business. Within a few years, I was trying various methods of crochet, along with different pattern designs and before long I was actually designing a few simple pieces.

Currently, I am a crochet professional working in the industry. I love to work with any type of materials. If it can be stranded, it can be crocheted with. Many of my items are of my own design, some of which have been featured in major publications. Most of my wearables are one of a kind pieces. I'm always looking for fresh, new ideas so if there is something that you would like me to make, please get in touch. I enjoy a challenge and as long as I have a picture to go by, I can usually make the item.

My work has been featured at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts and in the Smithsonian.

I carry a wide variety of yarns and threads from various manufacturers and am always on the lookout for yarns that are not the 'run of the mill' that you will find in your local craft shops.

I believe that 'What you sow, so shall ye reap'. I heartily support the local Project Linus group http://ProjectLinus.org and believe that every child needs a blanket to call their own. A donation is made to the local Project Linus group each month.

Other local charities are also supported as the need arises.

More of my finished work can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/crochetgal/

Thanks for stopping by!

If you are looking for a unique gift for that 'special someone' you just may find it here.
All pieces are made with the utmost attention paid to details. Unless otherwise noted in the item description, each item here is ready to ship. However, any of the wearables can be custom made for you in different colors, sizes or yarns. Please contact me for details. I do sizes from children's to plus sizes.

NOTE: Between July 22nd and July 29th I will be undergoing some medical treatments and will have limited internet access during that time. I will make every attempt to answer inquiries as soon as possible. Items purchased before the close of business on July 22nd will be shipped on Monday July 25th. Items purchased between July 23rd and July 29 will be shipped on July 30.

Note: As much as I do appreciate being featured on blogs, other websites, etc, I would request that you contact me directly before using my photos.

YARN STOCK:
I do carry a wide variety of yarns. All yarn listings are for brand new yarns and for a single ball unless otherwise specified in the description. However if there is more than one ball available it will be shown in the quantity available field. I'm always getting new yarns in the shop, so if there is something in particular that you are looking for, please let me know and I'll try to get it for you. Please feel free to contact me with your requirements. Each listing will show the actual catalog number and colour number of the yarn whenever possible. Please use this information when trying to match specific colours.

Because I do as much as possible to offer a wide selection of yarns at very reasonable prices, I do not offer any further discounts unless you are purchasing yarns by the case pack. Case packs are available by custom order only.

I do not send out sample cards or samples of any yarns other than in the sampler listings.

OUT of Stock items:
On occasion, some items will be temporarily out of stock. In these cases it will be noted in the listings. If an item is temporarily out of stock it will have an 'estimated ship date' indicated in the listing. Refunds are NOT given unless the item is not available by the estimated ship date.

Communication:
If you have a question about any item, feel free to contact me. I try to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. I am currently recovering from transplant surgery so on occasion answers may be delayed.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
****** I Do offer shipping discounts on multiple item purchases. Simply add the items to your cart to see the total shipping cost. Unfortunately when it comes to larger orders, Etsy does not seem to calculate the shipping very well. I will manually review shipping charges all larger orders and manually issue refunds for any overages as needed. *******

Payment by Paypal or credit card is preferred. Payment by any other method MUST be arranged in advance of the purchase.

Unless otherwise noted, most items will be shipped within 5 business days of payment.

RUSH SHIPPING: For most items there is a 'shipping upgrade' listed for purchases being shipped to addresses within the USA. The Upgrade to Priority mail means that the package will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail with an expected delivery date between 1 and 3 days from the date of mailing. There is NO guaranteed delivery date for Priority mail. The 'Priority Mail Express' option has a guaranteed delivery date of between 1 and 2 business days from the date the package was mailed. Please contact me prior to selecting Priority Mail Express shipping to discuss your needs.

All domestic packages are shipped USPS. Items weighing less than 13 oz are shipped 1st Class Package rate. Packages weighing more than 13 oz are shipped USPS Priority mail unless otherwise noted. If you prefer to have your purchase shipped via the slower but less expensive Parcel Select method, please simply leave a note when you make your purchase. Tracking is automatically provided on all domestic packages and some international packages.

For buyers who wish to pay with a credit card without a PayPal account: At checkout click on the PayPal icon and you will be redirected to PayPal, click the “I do not have a PayPal account” and follow the instructions (you will not be required to create an account to complete a purchase).

New to Etsy? Here's a helpful guide to making your first purchase:
http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361

LAYAWAY:
If you are short of funds but have found that 'special' item, a layaway plan can be arranged. Basic terms are 50% down - nonrefundable to hold the item. The balance must be paid off within one month (unless prior arrangements have been made) or the entire payment will be forfeited. I prefer to set it up with no more than three additional payments but this is negotiable. Once the item is completely paid for, it will be shipped. There is a 5% additional charge for layaways. Should you wish to use the layaway plan, contact me before making the purchase so that layaway payment dates can be arranged. The minimum purchase amount on a layaway is $100.

RESERVED ITEMS: Reserved items will be held for 24 hours unless prior arrangements have been made.

SPECIAL ORDERS: Yes, I will do special orders on any yarn. If you see a yarn in the shop but not in the colour that you are looking for, please feel free to contact me. I do place orders with various yarn manufacturers on a regular basis and if what you are looking for is available I'd be more than happy to order it for you. Payment on special orders must be made prior to my ordering the yarn. In the case the yarn is no longer available, a full refund will be provided. However, once the order has been placed with the manufacturer there will be no refunds issued simply because I've already ordered and paid for the yarn on your behalf. On occasion I will list items as 'special order only'. These items will have an 'estimated ship date' clearly posted in the listing. If you need the item before the estimated ship date, please do not purchase the item.

CUSTOM ORDERS: If you are looking for a full case of an item please feel free to request a custom order. These can be arranged.

CUSTOM WORK:
I enjoy doing custom work, but I will NOT duplicate anything from another sellers shop. I will however be willing to make changes to my own designs to meet your specifications.

All custom work and special orders require a minimum non-refundable deposit of 50% of the item price before any work will begin. If the item price is less than $50 then the full amount must be paid in advance. This includes detailed design work.

YARN STOCK:
All yarn listings are for brand new yarns and for a single ball unless otherwise specified in the description.
Shipping
****** I Do offer shipping discounts on multiple item purchases. Simply add the items to your cart to see the total shipping cost. Unfortunately when it comes to larger orders, Etsy does not seem to calculate the shipping very well. I will manually review shipping charges all larger orders and manually issue refunds for any overages as needed. *******

Unless otherwise noted most items will be shipped within 5 business days of the payment clearing.


All orders will be shipped to your address provided when the purchase is made. If you have a different address that you wish to be shipped to, please add that address to your account and use that address when you are making your purchase. The buyer is responsible for knowing their own shipping address. Here's some information on how to update your address on Etsy
https://www.etsy.com/help/article/51

The shipping cost listed includes not only the cost of postage, but also the cost of any packaging materials. I do try to recycle packaging materials as much as possible to keep these costs down.

Shipping costs are based on the weight of the package.
The majority of the listings have been set up with a reduced shipping charge for multiple items. If you are interested in purchasing multiple items, the shipping cost for 'with another item' will apply to all subsequent items. Here's a quick outline of how combined shipping works.
http://www.etsy.com/help/article/191
In the event that what you have paid is less than the actual cost, I pay the difference.

All domestic packages are shipped USPS. Items weighing less than 13 oz are shipped 1st Class Package rate. Packages weighing more than 13 oz are shipped USPS Priority mail unless otherwise noted. If you prefer to have your purchase shipped via the slower but less expensive Parcel Select method, please simply leave a note when you make your purchase.

RUSH SHIPPING: For most items there is a 'shipping upgrade' listed for purchases being shipped to addresses within the USA. The Upgrade to Priority mail means that the package will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail with an expected delivery date between 1 and 3 days from the date of mailing. There is NO guaranteed delivery date for Priority mail. The 'Priority Mail Express' option has a guaranteed delivery date of between 1 and 2 days from the date the package was mailed.
The purchase of a shipping upgrade does NOT imply that your package is shipped earlier than the scheduled date, but only that the upgraded shipping method will be used.

Shipping outside the United States is done USPS First Class up to the maximum weight and size permitted. All other packages are sent USPS Priority.

The buyer is responsible for any and all customs and duties. The customs declaration put on the package will NOT contain false information for any reason. The buyer is responsible for being aware of what can legally be imported into their country.

I will not 'guarantee' that any package will be delivered by any specific date. The USPS dates are guidelines and are NOT guarantees. Should a parcel absolutely have to be there by a specific date, I'm willing to make arrangements with private courier companies to help facilitate this.

All PDF pattern purchases are available via digital download. It is the responsibility of the buyer to download their own patterns.

Sorry but no local pickup is available at this time.

Although I make every effort to keep everything in stock at all times, there are times when our production does get behind. There are also times when items that were expected to arrive from our suppliers don't quite make it on the day that they were promised. In cases such as these I do make a note in the listings as to when the expected ship date will be.
Refunds and Exchanges
Once you have purchased an item you are expected to pay for it. Changing your mind is NOT a valid reason to request a refund. If you wish a different colour or size, please contact me BEFORE making the purchase for a custom order. I do not charge extra to make something in a different colour or size if it is one of my current listings.

Every effort is taken to try to portray my yarns as close as possible to the actual colors. I do try also to ensure that the actual colour number is listed in each listing. If you would like further clarification before you make your purchase, please feel free to ask. I'm more than willing to answer questions about anything in the shop.

If you have special ordered a yarn, once the order has been placed with the manufacturer there will be no refunds issued simply because I've already ordered and paid for the yarn on your behalf. The only exception to this would be if the yarn is out of stock in the manufacturer's warehouse. In those circumstances a full refund will be issued.

In the case where you need to cancel your order, please use the Cancel order link at " Your Account > Purchases & Reviews". Only orders that have not been shipped can be cancelled. Once the order has shipped its already been sent to the US Postal service and I cannot retrieve it. At that point you can simply refuse delivery of the package, mark it 'return to sender' and once the items have been received in the same condition that they were shipped the purchase price will be refunded.


I cannot control what the post office will do with packages after they have been shipped or how long a package takes to be delivered. But, if something has happened to the package in transit, please contact me.

Any requests for returns must be received within three business days of the package delivery date, shipped within 7 days of the package delivery date and will be considered on a case by case basis.

All returned items must be in NEW and UNUSED original condition. Shipping charges will not be refunded. There will be no refunds or returns on digital, custom or special orders. All other returns will be considered on a case by case basis. The buyer is responsible for all return shipping charges and all transaction fees incurred, unless the return is due to an error on my part. All returns MUST be shipped with either delivery confirmation and insurance or some other form of electronic tracking where available.

Only yarn with labels intact may be returned for exchange. Yarns that have been unskeined and wound into balls, or with labels removed are not acceptable for returns. Partially used balls of yarn are not acceptable for returns. All returns will be inspected prior to credit being issued. Store credit will be issued for the purchase price of the item(s). Shipping costs are nonrefundable.

There are no refunds or exchanges on digital items.

There will be no refunds/returns/exchanges offered on Sale items. This includes Saturday Night Specials.
Additional policies and FAQs
Special orders on any handmade items are more than welcome. Lets discuss your wants and needs.

All special order items will require a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the purchase price (excluding shipping), with the balance to be paid when the item is ready to ship. Should you cancel the special order, you will forfeit the deposit.

Orders placed will be listed in the shop as a 'reserved' order. You will be expected to purchase the listing and pay the agreed upon deposit the deposit before any work is done. Both the deposit and balance amounts will be requested via Paypal Invoice.

I do not do consignment at this time.

***A Word About COLOR**** I try very hard to accurately represent my product through photographs and description. I want you to love your special piece and come back for more! A lot of people don't realize that the color of the image can vary widely from one computer monitor to another. What looks lavender on one computer can be gray on another computer etc. If you are unable to determine the shade or exact colour through my description, please send me a Convo and I'll give you as much detail about the color as I can.

Please note: I do NOT take photographs of every ball of yarn that I sell. Rather the photos used are showing the design and colour variations. Chances are that you will NOT receive the yarn in the photo.

All items are made and stored in a smoke free, dog friendly environment. The utmost of care is taken to avoid pet hair on any product but there is the possibly that a stray hair may remain.

*** DISCOUNTS ***

If you want to be notified when my work goes on sale, you are more than welcome to join my mailing list. Just send me a convo and we'll take it from there.


TRADES::
Yes, I am usually open to trades, but at this time I'm not trading. I am usually looking for very unique one of a kind art pieces (no jewelry) as well as almost any kind of handmade soaps. I'm definitely a soapaholic! Almost any CP or HP soaps are more than welcome!


**** Please Note *****
All images are my own and are not for use on any other site without my express written permission. Should you wish to use an image, please do me the courtesy of contacting me first. Use of any image MUST include a direct link back to my shop. There are NO exceptions.

Frequently asked questions

Shipping charges for larger orders

Unfortunately when it comes to larger orders, Etsy does not seem to calculate the shipping very well. I will manually review shipping charges all larger orders and manually issue refunds for any overages as needed.
