Want to Know More???

❤❤❤❤ Hey Folks! ❤❤❤❤

Ballyhoo is a team of one (Luci), working from my home studio.

My art combines dollmaking with machine embroidery, and I love to teach those skills to other people. I have an active YouTube channel, as well as video classes on Skillshare.

I have been making dolls and stuffed animals since I was a teenager. Machine embroidery came later, but I have been digitizing my own designs for over a decade. Many materials and mediums were experimented with until I found "my style" of doll. I've sold finished dolls in the past, but now I prefer to design a doll and sell the pattern or embroidery machine design. That way, other people can have fun making these goofy characters out of cloth and thread.

What else can I tell you?
❤ As a former engineer, I include more than a little engineering into my designs so the process of making them is as simple as possible for you.
❤ I have also been a professional tech-writer, so my instruction documents are clear and concise.
❤ I've made various textile-related arts and crafts which were sold in this shop (under the name DuhBe) since 2008. I've also run Ballyhoo Bath as a separate shop on Etsy, but I no longer have a soap lab in my current home.

I've been on the internet for a really long time! You can find me on social media or my website. YouTube is my favorite place to share. See the "Related Links" on the right side of this page -->

For digital downloads: This License File is included in your download and your Etsy receipt serves as your proof of purchase.

By purchasing these digital files, you are agreeing to the following licensing terms. This agreement is legally binding.
1. All embroidery design files and digital patterns are Copyright © Ballyhoo Creations. These files can NOT be reproduced or distributed without the written permission of Ballyhoo Creations. This includes the digital embroidery files, PDF documents, photos/ videos, or any written test or diagrams.
2. These files are licensed to an INDIVIDUAL and cannot be used by a group of people unless each person purchases their own license and files.
3. You CAN (and I hope you do!) embroider or sew projects with these files and sell those finished projects (a doll, an embroidered shirt, you get the idea!) This is the Ballyhoo way of promoting small handmade business in the creative arts. You may sell your finished projects at places like craft fairs, Etsy, your own website, or brick and mortar stores. Mass commercial production by a factory is not allowed.
4. You (the customer) MAY NOT share, loan, rent or sell these Ballyhoo digital files with anyone, even if you obtained it from Ballyhoo for free.
5. If you downloaded these files from a website allowing unlimited commercial use, please understand that commercial usage applies to YOUR finished physical projects, not the digital files themselves. Refer to the Terms of Service of the site you purchased from for full details.
6. You CAN make a backup copy for your own file security (to protect against a hard drive crash, accidental delete, etc.)
7. Of course you CAN stitch projects for yourself or others. This includes gifts and charity donations.
8. You MAY NOT modify any part of Ballyhoo designs with the intent to distribute. This means you may not sell, trade or share your own version of Ballyhoo artwork as embroidery files, graphic design files, files used in electronic cutting machines and any other sort of digital file in future technology.
9. You ARE allowed to create or modify your own digital files for personal use, such as a digital cutting file to accompany an embroidery design, or add text to one of Ballyhoo’s designs for your own use with your own embroidery software.

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I know buying online can be unsettling, and I want you to be comfortable with your purchases from Ballyhoo Creations. All designs and patterns are tested to create a finished product, often by multiple people using different brands of embroidery machines.

Refunds are not available for digital downloads. But if you are not able to stitch out a design or finish a sewing pattern due to a defect in my procedures, I will work with you to fix the issue. I may ask you to provide photos of the problem to resolve the matter.

Kits can only be exchanged if there is a problem with the materials sent. This is because the cost to ship back and forth is a large portion of the product price.
Payment
Etsy Payments accepted.
Shipping
The beauty of digital downloads is that there is NO WAITING.

For kits and finished items, I ship within 1-3 business days via priority mail in the USA and offer free shipping. Please contact me for international shipments. I don't want to over or under charge and the rates are very high these days.
