About FiberQuirks

On Etsy since 2008

From Psychosomatic to Psychofiber

I was a new faculty member in a department of psychiatry negotiating a secondary appointment in the medical psychology department down the hall when I was introduced to a postdoctoral fellow there from the Netherlands. We were married a couple of years later. Fast forward to 5 years ago, when he was offered a full professorship in the Netherlands, so we moved, thinking I would also be able to work in the university here. When that fell through, I decided to revive the Etsy shop I'd originally started to sell items I made from upcycled felted wool sweater, and expand it to encompass the wider range of fiber arts to which I'd become addicted.

I'm always coming up with new ideas and trying and inventing new things, and have enjoyed the process immensely. I love helping other people flex their creative muscle, enjoy the challenge of making something new to meet a special need or request, and have a blast playing with fiber and yarn all the time!

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you contact me or purchase an item from me through or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, I require certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product(s) you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my products and services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Mailing services. I engage PostNL, and possibly additional shipping companies, to send your orders. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
