Wake up and sew, sew, sew!

Thank you for checking out my shop and furthermore- my about page!
My name is Lesley and I love crafting. I love a lot of other things too, but I feel alive, happy and inspired when I hear the roar of a sewing machine that needs a good greasing.

The ElleBee Tree started in 2008 in Kelowna, BC as a small hobby, a way to express
myself in a creative way. Over the years my inspirations and skill level has changed,
allowing me to experiment with different materials and create a brand of items that is
uniquely 'me'. Now in Calgary, AB, there is a whole new landscape to stir the creative

Now, more than just a hobby, creating pretty and handmade things is my go to, my
place of insight, my time to relax, it is a place of pure joy. I love shabby chic details, rustic elements, and working with bright, textured fabrics.

While I love to sew and enjoy creating new patterns, every item I make is with love and
represents a moment in time and growth with me as an artisan.

From burlap to brass and a little bit of this and that in between, there is a little something
for everyone. Be Inspired, Stay Happy!

Returns and exchange details
Exchanges for exact items are not always a guarantee as many items are one of a kind. Should a problem arise with your order I am happy to find a fair solution.

Customizeable options are not valid for exchange or refund.
If a refund is the solution it will be given minus the cost of shipping and Etsy fees and you are responsible for fees to return the item.

Please be mindful of possible variations in item color from screen to screen. Contrast and brightness may vary. Please request more information if needed.

Masks have a guarantee of 5 weeks from dispatched date. After that time it is too subjective to distinguish amount of wear, how items were washed, if care tips were followed according to the listing, etc.

You can expect to receive your item within 6-20 shipping days (this excludes weekends and holidays) if you’re in Canada or the USA. *Please note that while Covid19 is impacting delivery times, these estimates may also vary.*
