Lydia Who?

Acts 16:11-15 We set sail from Troas and took a straight course to Samothrace, the following day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of the district of Macedonia and a Roman colony. We remained in this city for some days. On the sabbath day we went outside the gate by the river, where we supposed there was a place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women who had gathered there. A certain woman named Lydia, a worshipper of God, was listening to us; she was from the city of Thyatira and a dealer in purple cloth. The Lord opened her heart to listen eagerly to what was said by Paul. When she and her household were baptized, she urged us, saying, ‘If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come and stay at my home.’ And she prevailed upon us.

We appreciate the fact that you have chosen a stole or other product from Lydia's Hands and that you are anxious to see it. We make every effort to ship product within 3-5 days of receipt of order. Lydia's Hands ships USPS Priority with insurance which provides a tracking number, unless the customer requests Express Mail. We do not require signature at delivery unless you so request. Please make sure the package won't get wet!

CANADA - Packages to Canada are sent USPS express. It is my experience that the extra few dollars is worth it in light of how often priority packages are held up at customs.
Additional policies and FAQs
We love the challenge of custom orders. Please contact us if there is a stole you have always wanted, or need a special chasuble for a certain service. If you need a stole shortened, or would like a pictured red stole in green, for instance, convo us and we will do our best to accommodate your request. All textile art from Lydia's Hands should be dry cleaned.
