About

Red Beauty Textiles sells yarn and fabric!

Please visit my website, RedBeautyTextiles.com!

My other Etsy shops, ColorLabel, PurpleFigYarn, FlowerMercantile, and my newest Etsy venture, CrazySaleTextiles, Welcome to the Yarn Party!™

My name is Booth Kittson and I'm the owner, operator, and jill-of-all-trades at Red Beauty Textiles.
My goal is to offer you gorgeous, beautiful yarns and lovely fabrics for your crafting pleasure.

--How did you start selling yarn and fabric?
I started out on Etsy in June 2011. I had the idea that this would be a great way to destash 30+ years of fabric and yarn collecting. When I started duplicate buying and having problems locating a certain yarn or sewing pattern, I realized that I could no longer manage all that stuff and it was time to find most of my stash a new and loving home.

After a few months I realized that I loved being able to assist folks with their creative goals and decided to pursue the business of selling fabric and yarn online as a full time career.

--You mean it's just you?
Yup, Red Beauty Textiles is a one woman show. I recently married my long term boyfriend (of 17 years!). He graciously helps me with lugging big fabric bolts, inventory, and taxes. Graphics, photography, minor website maintenance, and running the business are done by me. When I need big updates to my website I usually hire one of three fabulous programmers to help.

--Where do you live?
I live in Austin, TX USA

--Do you have a physical store?
At this time no. One day I hope to have a traditional "brick & mortar"
shop.

--How did you get into textiles?
My mom was a professional seamstress and taught me to sew, knit, and crochet when I was a tiny child. I attended Louise Salinger Academy of Fashion (San Francisco) and eventually made my way to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in Los Angeles. I've also taken a ridiculous number of art classes along the way (ridiculous in that my talent has not improved in proportion to the time spent in classes).

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your creative process!

At this time my Etsy shop, Red Beauty Textiles, does not ship to EU. Recent changes in Etsy policy requires me to collect VAT and associated fees for shipping to EU and other countries making sales unfeasible in these areas.

NEGOTIATED SHIPPING:
I try to keep my prices low and my shipping at cost. I'm always happy to weigh out your unique combination of items to get a more accurate shipping rate.

Unfortunately I am unable to offer Free Shipping or otherwise negotiate my shipping rates. Really! Red Beauty Textiles does not operate with a lot of padding like big online merchants. To undercharge for shipping I would need to raise my prices!

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETURN AN ITEM.
Additional policies and FAQs
I live in a smoke free, chemical free home with two lovely kitties. Although my studio is in a separate building sometimes cat fur migrates into the room. If you are allergic to cats, sadly you may wish to pass on the textiles.

Frequently asked questions

Are your fabrics by the yard?

Yes. Unless indicated otherwise, all fabrics are priced and sold by the yard (.9 m). Yardage will be continuously cut from bolt.

Do you wind yarn?

Yes! With a few caveats...

I wind skein yarn into large center pull balls as a courtesy to my customers, free of charge, upon request. Yarn winding is limited to four skeins per customer per month. Additional skeins are charged at $1/skein.

Just send a convo or add a note with your purchase for this service.

**Please note that wound yarn is non-returnable.**

Do you have this yarn in another color? I don't see it listed.

I may have other colors of many of the yarns that I carry in stock on my website, redbeautytextiles.com. Send me a convo and I can check.
I'm also happy to special order yarn in quantities or in a color I do not currently have - just send me a note.

Do you sell wholesale?

For production knitters or sewists I do sell some of my products at a discount if you order in quantity.
Usually yarn is a minimum of 20 skeins. Japanese fabrics are a minimum of two full bolts. Please send me a convo or email redbeautytextiles@gmail.com to learn more details.

How soon will my order get to me?

My shipping days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, excluding US Holidays. If you place your order before 7am CST on a ship day, your order will usually ship that day. If you order later than 7am your order will ship next shipping day. Excluded are orders with extensive yarn winding or custom cutting requirements.

My goal is to make sure your order arrives in a timely fashion. If you have concerns please convo me or email at redbeautytextiles@gmail.com

USPS quoted arrival times are estimates only. I cannot guarantee arrival dates. Please take this into account when you have a time sensitive order.

I see your products for sale on your website cheaper, can I get a refund?

Some of my products are, indeed, listed for less on my website. Unfortunately I cannot make adjustments to my Etsy listings to match my website prices.

I saw free shipping on your website, can I get free shipping?

I work my margins very closely and do not have a lot of padding like the big guys, so short answer? No. I do not offer free shipping nor honor coupons from my website here on my Etsy shop.
In other words if you would like to take advantage of special deals on my website, you'll need to purchase from my website.

Do you take returns?

Yes! I take returns cheerfully on most items. Fabric must be unwashed and uncut. I do not take returns on cut yardage. Yarn must be in original packaging and unwound. No odors or pet fur please! Check my policies for more details.

Do you send fabric swatches?

Yes! I send up to ten swatches to anywhere in the world for free! Don't be shy.

Send me a convo with the swatch(es) you are interested in and make sure to include your mailing address. Also include your email if you would like a shipping notice.
