About

World traveller at heart works from home

I've had an online store since living in the Silicon Valley in the late ‘90s. An engineer friend gave me 4 hours of html training, and the rest of my site is history! I've been a quilter for decades; although the first quilt is stupendously badly made. I've loved fabric and designing all my life. My first attempt at creating my world was on my window shade, to the dismay of my parents. Despite being an artist at heart, playing piano by ear, I reluctantly managed to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business due to the uncertainty of the economy in the 1980s looking forward to gainful employment. There were few jobs available in the rust belt, so I moved west to CA; home for 17 years. After graduating from Santa Clara University, and marrying in its Mission, I decided that due to my flawed “tact” gene, I’d be better off not working for corporate America. I made my way to the top immediately by owning Pat on the Back, my own business. Making handcrafted products was the first phase of the business, but I found that others shared my love of fabric, and decided to make fabric available to all. I've made my home in Arizona since 2001 with the love of my life, as well as with fur-machine Mopsy the cat.

Sales tax collected when orders are delivered within the state of Arizona. Sales tax is not collected when products are shipped from Arizona to another state or country.

Shipping
FAST AND SAFE SHIPPING
Most items shipped within one business day of receipt - often the same day! Tracking available for every order. I am a big fan of the US postal service, which does a fabulous job in most cases.
For additional insurance, please make a note when you purchase, as I have absolutely zero control over post offices and employees. Thus, I am not liable for their mistakes and their mistakes are not a reflection on my shop.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION
I always find the most economic and and efficient way to ship. Shipping overpayments greater than $2 are generally refunded just after you receive your package. Etsy's shipping calculator cannot account for flat-rate and regional rate packaging, which I use for packages over a pound.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - READ BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
*****PHONE NUMBER Include your phone number when you purchase. It is very helpful and needed on many customs forms*****
The cost to ship Internationally is challenging.
I am not responsible for VAT, tariffs, customs fees, nor any other fees your country imposes on imports. I have absolutely zero control over post offices and employees.
Research fees yourself, as I have absolutely zero control over post offices and employees.
Expect your order to arrive after it goes through customs, which could be as long as a month, but is often quite a bit less.
Generally, tracking is available to the US border, although it becomes more available internationally. For additional tracking or insurance, contact me BEFORE you purchase. Insurance available on many types of packaging.
I cannot refund lost, stolen, delayed, or any other damaged packages, since I have no control over any governmental entity nor its employees. if you have not received your parcel, please contact your local postmaster. We do not have any additional information available, and will not replace missing parcels.
I am not responsible for delays or additional fees that may be charged at customs, as I have no control over any governmental entity nor its employees.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds nor exchanges on custom orders, cut fabric, patterns/books, and some other items. Some SALEABLE items may be exchanged in person, or shipped at your expense with delivery confirmation. Email me with any questions BEFORE you purchase. Please note the word EXCHANGE - money will not be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale prices offered when a $250 retail value is reached. Custom orders welcome and encouraged.

Frequently asked questions

Multiple fabric quantities

For most fabrics, you'll select dimensions from the pull-down menu, then select quantity. Fabric is cut when you purchase, and will be continuous, rather than cut separately. Click tab under images for shipping to your location.

What does it cost to ship?

Click tab under images for shipping to your location. Put your zip code or postal code in, and select the delivery speed. Etsy's built-in shipping calculator is used for just about every item.

Etsy's calculator estimates priority and first class pretty well, but can't possibly account for regional rate and flat-rate packaging, which is often lower. Shop policies have more shipping information.

Estimate on USPS' shipping calculator (postcalc.usps.gov) from my zip code 85269 to yours. Most fabric weighs 4-6 oz. per yard, so enter a weight and your and my zip codes to gauge.

How much do you have?

If you'd like more than appears in the pull-down menu for quantity, first read the description to see if the total amount available is listed, such as, "only one available." If the description doesn't say how much is available, tell me HOW MUCH more you'd like, and I'll let you know if I have as much as you are interested in.

Exchange policy (excluding cut fabric)

No refunds nor exchanges on custom orders, cut fabric, and some other items. Please note the word EXCHANGE - money is not refunded.
I'm available for you to contact with questions BEFORE your purchase. I LOVE my five star ratings, and so should you!
In the event of an exchange of SALEABLE items, you'll pay for shipping both ways, which means shipping to you, and shipping back to me with delivery confirmation.
Your exchange amount will be a credit for a future purchase, or an item exchange. If what you returned to me can't be sold as new, it is not returnable. You wouldn't want to purchase something as new that isn't really new, would you?
