Announcement   The HemHouse Closing Sale has begun! 40% off all in-stock/pre-made items! For the time being, all HemHouse designs will still be available for purchase before Dec 31st, but then they'll be gone forever!

With positive feelings, I’ve decided that HemHouse has almost reached the age of “retirement”. She has served her purpose of helping me through a difficult time, and with much deliberation, I’ve decided to close up shop as of December 31st, 2018.

I feel as if I’ve really accomplished something by growing my tiny hobby into a healthy home-based business; something to be proud of.

At this time, most of the HemHouse social media accounts have been either closed or repurposed for personal use, but until Dec 31st, you’ll be able to reach me through Facebook or Etsy. Www.hemhouse.ca will be shut down within the coming weeks, and prices in my Etsy shop will be adjusted accordingly with intent on selling my remaining stock. Gradually, some of my equipment and materials will be available for purchase and these will also be posted through Facebook and Etsy.

A brief history of HemHouse:

3 years, 7 moves, over 200 individual sales through a variety of means, 8 craft shows and 1 natural disaster!

HemHouse has made its presence known through Etsy, Best for Bride, Facebook, www.HemHouse.ca, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Wedding Rescue, Wedding Wire, NOT TO MENTION sales to 4 different countries (including 20 US states and 7 Canadian provinces) ALL while maintaining a 5 Star rating across the board.

I SINCERELY appreciate all of the support, referrals, advice and assistance over these last few years. Thank you, thank you, to all.

Yours truly,

Tammy Williamson

About

Here's a long-winded story about Tammy and her little shop, HemHouse!

Hi there!

My name is Tammy and I'm the owner/operator/idea-machine of HemHouse.

I was taught how to use a sewing machine when I was 5 years old, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, by my mother. We made a tiny beanbag bear from a boxed pattern and gave it to my Nana for Christmas. (Not to brag, but I've entered my 30’s and Nana still uses that bear as a doorstop!)

I sewed on and off throughout my teens, but I was never very serious about it. It was mostly out of necessity. I'm a klutz and I tend to rip all of my nicest clothes...

Anyway, in mid-2015, I lay bed daydreaming about my beautiful and brand new Alice in Wonderland poodle skirt. I had just purchased it one week prior on Whyte Ave in Edmonton, Alberta, and had paid just short of an obscene amount for it. But, oh, how I loved it dearly! Right then and there, in the middle of my daydreaming, it occurred to me that I should learn how to sew (again)!

So then it began. A good friend sold me her sewing machine for $80 (and donated a bunch of fabric and thread), and I was off to the races. I started by sewing a variety of skirts for my own wardrobe and was exhilarated to learn I had a bit of a flare for it!

After amassing a small collection of skirts for my own closet, I started looking for new challenges. Keeping with my 50's inspiration, I started to sew using satin and lace, and developed a few different prototype garters. I had some great feedback from family and friends, and as time passed, I realized I needed a way to share my garters with the WORLD!
(AKA - I had a drawer filled with 100 different garters, and I thought it was time they all found good homes.)

It was time to see Etsy from the OTHER side - the VENDOR side, and I promptly joined Etsy Resolution 2016. My boyfriend Tom came up with the name "HemHouse" and it all became official when I drew lovely Henrietta, my logo.

Now, I'm just craving new ideas and sewing any chance I get. I'm happy to say that sewing is EXACTLY what I've needed in my life and it's also keeping me busy and out of trouble. Somehow, what seemed like an eccentric idea way too close to sunrise has become a huge part of my life and myself.

Although HemHouse has encountered some wicked hiccups along the way (like that time we lost our home in the 2016 Fort McMurray Wildfire) I know this is my passion, and I’m thrilled that HemHouse was able to recover and reestablish.

Thank you, and I sincerely appreciate that you took the time to get to know my shop and I a little bit!

Love,

Tammy
HemHouse

PS - I hope I can help you make your wedding vision come true one day. Take a gander at my shop to see what's in stock, or let me know if I can create something custom for your big day (or your lingerie drawer).

PSS - If you'd like to hear more about the HemHouse journey or you have any questions regarding HemHouse garters, feel free to send me an Etsy conversation.

RETURNS & EXCHANGES

I gladly accept returns & exchanges on most in stock items
(See “Restrictions” for custom or personalized orders)

If the parcel has already been shipped to the customer, a maximum refund request time of 7 days will take effect. The refund will be provided as soon as the product has been returned to HemHouse and is in our possession (assuming the product is in its original packaging and remains unworn - your honesty is appreciated!). Once the seven days has expired, your order is no longer eligible for a refund or exchange.

Please note that all shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer, not HemHouse, and only the cost of the product may be reimbursed.



CANCELLATIONS

Cancellations are accepted within 5 hours of placing your in stock order, and will be reimbursed in full.
(See “Restrictions” for custom or personalized orders)

We know how hard it is when circumstances change, so please give us as much notice as possible when cancelling your order. We at HemHouse pride ourselves on fast shipping, so to ensure a full and immediate reimbursement including shipping costs, the order must still be in our possession.



RESTRICTIONS

Due of the nature of these products, unless the product arrives damaged or defective, returns cannot be accepted for:
- Custom or personalized orders
- Used items
- Clearance items
Again, your honesty is greatly appreciated!

Customized or personalized order:

This is determined on a case-by-case-basis.
If a cancellation has been requested for a custom order, and the customized product has been sewn but not shipped but is unfit for placement in regular store stock for resale (ie: it's been personalized), a refund may be issued, less the cost of supplies and labour (maximum of $13.00).

Clearance items:
All clearance items are final sale.
