My son loves this book. He's 5 months and I love how I don't have to worry about him chewing on it. Will be ordering more for sure+fast shipping. Thank you!

About

The Binderie

Being creative, and specifically the act of creating things, is a joy like no other I've ever felt. It is what holds me together as a person and it is a fundamental way that I share myself and my vision with the world. It is a spark that can light other sparks, making the world a more beautiful, dynamic, interesting place. This leads to the idea of right livelihood, which is very important to me. I would rather make and live on less money doing something I love and which brightens the world than get rich on something that brings me, and others, no joy.

For me, the key to creativity is fearlessness, diving right into an idea. When I overthink something I immediately begin to doubt, and the moment doubt creeps in so much potential is lost. Being a self taught artist means that I'm not indoctrinated with the accepted "right" and "wrong" ways to do things and so everything is open to me. Sometimes the "wrong" way yields the most amazing results. Rules are for fools!

    I believe in doing what you love and what is right. I am a self-taught textile artist, mother of three, and a bit of a rebel. I live and work in downtown Albany, NY while dreaming of the coast of Maine.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal and credit card payments. I also welcome inquiries about trades.

I require payment of at least 50% up front for custom orders. I will always work with customers on payment plans.

NY state residents add 8% tax.

Orders will be canceled and items relisted if no payment or communication is received for 5 days.
Shipping
I make my own packaging with recycled paper and padding or use EcoEnclose biodegradable/reusable poly mailers. For larger orders I use recycled packaging whenever possible.

I ship my smaller items 1st class via United States Postal Service with delivery confirmation within 2 days of receiving payment or upon completion of custom orders. Quilts and larger orders are shipped priority mail. Custom orders will usually take 2-4 weeks to make and deliver.

I am happy to ship internationally, as well. I wish I could come along for the ride.... International shipping prices listed are for Priority Mail; I will also ship via First Class as a less expensive option. Please note that buyers are responsible for any additional fees that may be charged at customs.

I offer free gift wrapping (using reclaimed fabric and ribbon) and gift cards--just let me know you'd like it.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want all of my customers to be satisfied and will work with you to achieve that goal. Please do let me know if you're not fully satisfied with my work or if you discover any flaws and I will do everything I can to fix it.
Additional policies and FAQs
I ♥ custom orders! I only make a certain number of ready made cloth books because they are incredibly detailed and I prefer to make them with a specific person in mind. Names can be added, images can be created, colors can be combined...just let me know!
