About

Forget Me Knot Treasure

I love the ancient art of embroidery. Today the ancient art of hand embroidery has moved to machine embroidery. I enjoy handcrafting quality towels, spa wraps, blankets and throws of all sorts and sizes. I create, sew and embroidery all of my items myself. I use quality fabrics and towels for all of my products. I enjoy creating that special treasure for your home or to be given as a treasured gift to your friend or family. I hope you find your treasured item today.

My mom taught me how to sew when I was four. I grew up learning how to bead, knit, crochet and crafts of all kinds. By the time I was a teenager I was making bridal gowns, prom, cocktail gowns and accessories for my moms bridal shop. I started machine embroidery years ago mostly to keep me busy. It appealed to me as a creative outlet and still included my knowledge of computers. I spent many years working in the computer industry and most of my life doing arts and crafts. Embroidery allows me to combine the two skills. A few years ago I learned how to create my own embroidery designs. I get my inspirations for my designs from my family, my friends, nature and my dog. I enjoy creating and sewing my own designs together to see what I can come up with. I like to mix and combine different fabric textures and paints to create something new.
Right now I offer third party embroidery designs as well as adding some of my own designs to the shop. Some day I hope it will be all my designs.
Lastly, I survived cancer with diabetes in 2015. I'm still recovering from cancer treatments.

Welcome! I appreciate you taking the time to visit my shop. I hope you find something you like and will enjoy.

All of my items are custom made especially for you by me. I make each and every item by myself with quality fabric and threads. All orders are made on a first come, first served basis.

My Process:
I order the blank towels,
Once received I do a hot wash to shrink the towel and remove any commercial oils and chemicals.
I hoop the towel using two stabilizers front (film) and back.
I machine embroidery each towel with your chosen design. (Designs can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to embroidery.)
When the embroidery is complete I cut all loose threads and pluck out all stabilizer front and back. (This can take hours depending on the design.)
Then I steam the towel to remove as much of the hoop indentation as possible.
Towel hang dries over night.
The next day I package your order and print the label.
Lastly, I place your package in the box ready for pick up on Friday.

I put my heart into each piece I make for you. My goal is to have a well made product that my customers will have for a long time.
I do all of the work myself and in a smoke free, pet friendly home.

Shipping
I ship USPS First Class Mail (domestic only) on FRIDAYS. I am home bound and do not drive. I use USPS Pick Up and scheduled on Friday. All items in the shop are handmade. Items can take up to 3-4 weeks (Normal), 3-6 weeks (Holidays), 8-9 weeks (Dec orders) to complete before shipping depending on my level of orders and season, so please bare with me. Orders ship on Friday.
USPS Mail delivery times are usually within 5-10 business days after item has been shipped. 5-10 days is off of the USPS website.

The USPS provides a great service at great prices but sometimes delays in shipping times can occur, sometimes even loss. If you happen to experience this let me know we can work out a way to get you your item! I can not file a missing package claim until after 7 days has expired.

Be advised that some tracking numbers may take up to 24 hours to be available for tracking. Also, note that the USPS reuses tracking numbers that were originally issued 6-9 months ago, and in these cases the old tracking information may be shown for up to 24 hours.

International Shipping

Refunds and Exchanges
I have a NO RETURN policy. All of my items are custom made especially for you. I do not keep inventory to return items too. If there should be a problem with your item do not hesitate to contact me for help.

Cancellation: You have 2 days (48 hours) from time of purchase to cancel the order for a full refund. After two days the supplies are purchased to complete your order. If you need to cancel and the 2 days has expired please contact me for help.
Additional policies and FAQs
I make a few towels for my home to test the quality after multiple washings.
If there is a problem with the towel itself I would like to know. I use various towel vendors and want to know if there is a quality problem.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Machine wash cool, Tumble dry low. Do not bleach.

Why is there a clear film on top of my towel? Or Why is there pointy/rough edges when I touch the design?

The clear film is stabilizer. Sometimes I can't get all of the stabilizer out of all the nooks and crannies of the embroidery design. Once you wash the towel the stabilizer will wash out.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes I can add a name or text, up to 15 characters including spaces. Text will be added to the bottom of the design. I use a block font because a script font can get lost in the terry cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I will include a gift tag upon request. (To, From, short message)
Sorry, I currently do not offer gift wrapping.

Quality of towels?

It is very hard to find plain towels that do not have a woven border 3-4" from the edge which interferes with embroidery designs. The towels I use are a 100% cotton, medium weight terry towel. These are a good quality, nice weight towel. The towels are soft and absorbent. The vendor I buy these towels from sells to spas, salons and hotels. The towels are not cheap. On the other hand they are also not Egyptian or Ultra Premium towels.
Bath towels will have the 1" woven border 3-4" from the bottom of the towel. I can no longer get bath towels that are plain.

Do you sell sets of towels?

All towels are sold as single towels unless stated it is a bath set. If you find a design you like and want it in a bath towel, please email me and I can tell you weather it can be made into a bath towel. Some designs are too small for a bath towel and can't be resized.

Why is my tracking number not showing up on the site?

Be advised that some tracking numbers may take up to 24 hours to be available for tracking. Also, note that the USPS reuses tracking numbers that were originally issued 6-9 months ago, and in these cases the old tracking information may be shown for up to 24 hours.
