Fabric is love...

Fabric is my playground. Fabric is my world. Fabric is love!

My mother and grandmother taught me how to sew as a child. Having learned on an old-fashioned treadle sewing machine, I am grateful for all the awesome capabilities of today's sewing machines. However, whenever I see a treadle machine, fond memories of my childhood sewing come rushing back.

From a sewing perspective, I like working with PUL fabric making wet bags, bibs, and those oh-so-cute diaper changing accessories to ward off those baby boy pee-attacks! In the past, I've sewn clothes for work, baby clothes, doll clothes, bridesmaids dresses, and even my own wedding gown.

From a quilting perspective, quilts, table runners, purses, pouches, pothholders and pincushions are favorites. It is so very satisfying to select fabric, cut it up, and then sew it back together again! The finishing process of quilting and binding is equally satisfying. You can find quilts draped over chairs and sofas in my home. Furniture pieces are adorned with mugrugs and table runners of all kinds.

In the fall you can also find me at many local art and craft shows.

On my blog I always end each post with a "Today's Abundance" List. It seems appropriate to do the same thing here.

Today's Abundance
-Fabric (of all kinds)
-Sewing Machines (yes, I have more than 1)
-Quilt Shops and Quilting Guilds

Thanks for stopping by... Rita

Returns and exchanges
For Personalized Items
Refunds, including shipping costs, are not made for personalized items. Communication is key to making sure a personalized item meets expectations so please make sure they are clearly stated with your order.

For Non-Personalized Items
If you are thinking of returning a purchase, please convo me first so we can work out the details. If you feel there is a defect please include a photo which shows your concern.

Purchases can be returned for refund within 3 business days of receipt. Shipping fees are non-refundable. Return shipping fees responsibility of the purchaser. Purchases must be in orignal condition and returned in original packaging. Refunds will be processed after the product has been received by myself. I highly recommend that item be shipped back with Delivery Confirmation or Signature Required to ensure there is a tracking mechanism for the package.

Digital Downloads/Tutorials
No refunds will be made for tutorials or Digital Downloads once purchased.
Payment is via PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout. Both options allow payment with your credit card.
I refund shipping costs (postage and insurance) that are in excess of $1 of what the customer paid once I prepare your package for mailing.

Shipping is non-refundable for personalized items. Communication is key to making sure a personalized item meets expectations so please make sure they are clearly stated with your order.

All packages are shipped to the "Ship To" address as shown on the transaction information. This protects both of us. If you pay via Etsy Direct Checkout this will be your address on file with Etsy. If you pay via PayPal this will be your address on file with PayPal. If you want it shipped to a different address, please edit the address prior to checkout. Shipments will not be made to addresses entered in the notes area nor via convos or emails.

Domestic Shipments are made via USPS 1st Class whenever possible to minimize shipping costs. Delivery Confirmation is included on all packages.

International Shipments are made via USPS First Class Package International Service wherever possible to minimize shipping costs. Delivery Confirmation is now included for First Class Package International Service, and Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelope and Small Flat Rate Box shipments going to the following countries: Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland. Tracking information is not provided for any other country.

There is no guaranteed arrival date for USPS First Class Package International Service. It can take anywhere from 30-60 days to get through customs and delivered. I generally do not list items that are over 13 ounces with international shipping options. If you are interested, please send a convo for a shipping quote.

The customer is responsible for all duties and customs fees levied by your country.

There are some countries that I will not ship to because of their poor track record of delivery. These include, but are not limited to, Afghanistan, Angola, Bolivia, Brazil, Burma, Commonwealth of Independent States countries, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire), Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, North Korea, Paraguay, Russia, Russian Federation, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela. Any location that would be in violation of any U.S. economic or trade sanctions including OFAC Restricted Countries. Full refunds will be issued if purchases are inadvertently made from a customer in one of these countries.

If you would like a different method of shipment please contact me for estimated costs. I will then setup a reserved listing for you.
