~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the time being, I will no longer be selling patterns but only fabrics and trimmings, etc..

I DO ship to other countries if you don't see a shipping rate for it, so please CONTACT me with your location for an accurate price.

I pack all fragile items very well with padding/bubble wrap and/or paper and plastic protection, so I have not had anything to date break in shipping.

I also refund overages in postage of $1 or more.

All items are from a smoke-free home.

The pattern was packaged so well that it arrived safe and unscathed by the delivery service! I also appreciated the special thank you enclosed.

Jeanne responded on Jul 29, 2014

I always serve my customers honestly and clearly describe merchandise as best I can. To say that the item was "incorrect" is simply untrue and I was never asked about a return! Buyer's convo to me after receiving her items: "I received the order but very confused as to quantity of 9 " bullion I thought it was a bolt it's barely a yard I only took the brush fringe to get the bullion Do u have more bullion" My response to her convo: "I am truly sorry that I don't have more and I don't know how else I could have described the quantity available other than 1 yard 6"." My listing was quite clear: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/213024854 Too bad I was not asked to clarify before her purchase or to return afterwards!

About

Story of a Fabric, Trimming, Vintage Lace, and Pattern Hoarder!

I am a dreamer .... and a hoarder ...... of vintage and new fabrics, patterns, lace, trimmings, books, etc. ......

I've amassed such a collection of "stuff" that much of my fabric - 60 plus cartons full - had to be relegated to the basement because I had a nightmare that my upstairs workroom floor would fall through!

I still have dress fabric from the late 60s that I just never could figure out what to do with, fabrics from my samplemaking business in NYC, decorating fabrics from a gift/furnishing shop where I so loved buying the discontinued bolts of floral chintzes, fabrics that I just HAD to have from a popular home furnishings emporium in NYC where I worked, more fabrics from a nationwide home furnishings fabric store and not to mention all the scraps, samples and yardage collected from my last foray at a luxury linens company!

Add to that my mom's patterns, my superfluous patterns along with the antique and vintage laces, tablecloths, hankies, trimmings, ribbons, etc., that I just HAD to have when lollygagging around my friend's antique shop in NYC years ago, not to mention the collection of sewing machines...some coming, others going!

Now, it's vintage patterns I crave.....just cannot get enough of those wonderful old patterns....the gamut runs from the vintage lingerie of the 20s through 50s, to the dresses and suits of the 20s, late 40s and early 50s.... I hope to adapt some of these wonderful old styles into product one of these days using my own variations....

In the past, I've designed and made many dozens of fanciful decorative pillows, fabric handbags, sumptuous fabric frames, contracted out custom drapery treatments, to clothes both for a private clientele as well as select retail shops....I've done that.....then ~

This shop was originally started to be an avenue for my designs, but the hoarder's hoard has taken over and I use this as a venue to sell the superfluous, what-nots and whatchamacallits! The collections and sewing machines have been crowding me out of my workroom for far too long, so the collector must now thin out, pack up and ship out to you dear customer who can better use it than me!

It has also necessitated opening another shop with a different and more romantic ambiance, to sell the furnishings and later the new items yet to be made. http://www.etsy.com/shop/PruAtelier

So, take a few minutes to browse .....do enjoy ..... and I would love for you to honor me with a visit again!

I ship First Class Mail and Priority Mail Flat Rate on most other items. I try to decide which is the better rate upon packing up your purchase, often not knowable til the item such as fabric is packed.

If you wish a particular method of shipping, please contact me BEFORE your purchase and we can work it out. I have better access to the post office than to UPS and FEDEX, so please keep this in mind.

Insurance is optional ONLY FOR USA, so I cannot therefore be held responsible for a lost or item damaged in shipping if no insurance is taken.

I will combine shipping if you purchase multiple items within 1 day, and the adjustment to shipping will be made after you contact me with your request.

FOR ANY SHIPPING QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE.
Refunds and Exchanges
For shipping patterns I enclose in a cellophane envelope inside the package, so there is generally little risk for damage.

I take the utmost care to package other items, fragile or not, carefully and in plastic for protection inside boxes.

I also take care to describe each item accurately, and try to have clear pictures of same, so should you be concerned about a particular color, or any other issue please contact me prior to purchase.

Refunds and exchanges are not available unless I have wrongly described the characteristics or condition of an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
Should I not receive payment for a purchase within 3 days, I will deem it a non-sale, cancel then re list the item unless I hear from you.

RESERVED Items:

I MUST have a time frame for reserving an item before I will reserve it. I will reserve something for no longer than 1 week or a mutually agreed upon time frame, and if it is not purchased within that time frame or I don't hear anything from you, it will be taken off reserve and made available again for anyone to purchase.

LAYAWAYS:

The terms will be mutually agreed upon by both seller (me) and buyer. If payments are not made in the schedule as agreed upon and no request for a delay no longer than a week, or a long delay in scheduled payment is made by you, I will notify you that i am cancelling the sale for which I will refund monies already paid, less 20% for the time I had the item off the market.
