I love to sew and be creative putting fabrics together. I let the materials talk to me, and design a cloth around my "conversation" with the print or colors of the various fabrics. Sometimes I have enough of one fabric to simply hem it and call it a bedspread for a single bed, like a child's bed. Mostly, though, I have a 36" yard cut or a 24" square sample of beautiful silks, some embroidered, some printed, some brocade, etc., and I piece these together with another silk or velvet to make a large bedspread for a full or queen or king size bed. These pieces take a long time to make, including the selection of fabrics and the design and engineering of the piece. You'll see bedspreads for $300, but I am also listing a child's bedspread for $100, because all it needed was hemming. I make pillows the same way, using left-over materials and designing and piecing them togather, with a zipper. I have a tablecloth for $150, and that is something from small quantities that I spent a lot of time on, designing and piecing together. I finish all my seams, either turning each side under and top-stitiching, or with heavier fabrics, just sewing the seam sides down. Thus, each seam actually requires 3 passes on the machine: 1st to sew the fabrics together, and then each side sewn down. I have taken pictures of the finished seams. I finish the seam that way to prevent raveling in the washing machine, and to strengthen the seam. I take pride in my pieces. If treated well, they will last a long time, and the large bedspreads could be passed on to another generation.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with the piece, you may return it for full refund, and I will pay the return shipping charges.
Shipping
I will send your purchase the best most economical way I can, depending on the weight and size of the piece. I like to have tracking numbers, so it could ship Priority from the US Post Office, or I may feel the piece should ship UPS. Please let me know if you require any special shipping method and I will do my best to accommodate you.

I will ship internationally. This charge is under "everywhere else" and is actually an estimate. Please convo me, and I will quote a firm shipping charge.
