About

How did I end up here?

I come from a very long line of seamstresses and quilters. As a child, my great grandmother taught me to quilt. I can remember sitting at her full-sized quilting frames that took up most of her living room. My mother, though, taught me for the most part. She had a home-based sewing and alterations business. While Mom was working to provide athletic shoes and lessons for my brother and me, I was allowed to make anything I wanted from her scraps. While I’m sure my mom tried to teach me to use a proper pattern, I still can’t follow anyone else’s ideas or directions!

As a young woman, I was determined that I would never sew. As the first woman in my family to attend (graduate, get a MA, etc.) college, my future was to be in the professional world. Many of the opening pages of my Master’s Thesis from Columbia details how I would make a life and career outside the home.

Fast forward to the spring of 2001. I was still home on an extended maternity leave after the birth of our first child. My grandmother and her husband came to visit us on Long Island. Despairing of how to keep them occupied, I fell back on my mom’s suggestion of taking my grandmother to a fabric store. When I walked in door, and saw the fabric, something clicked. Suddenly, a door that I hadn’t realized was closed opened before me. So many colors, ideas, possibilities! I’ve spent the last dozen years knee-deep in fabric.

I began by quilting. Over the next few years, I made numerous quilts. Every size from crib quilts to king-sized, all meticulously hand quilted. At one point, I could proudly state that every member of the family slept under quilts that I made. (Now, of course, we’re much like the cobbler’s family: shoes for everyone else, but not for us!) I was able to sell a few quilts here and there, but as a bed quilt takes 6-9 months to hand quilt, there was just no way to make it even vaguely profitable.

“Pieceful Design” began after a request from my sister-in-law. She was in seminary, and was looking for a set of stoles to wear in the pulpit as a United Methodist minister. She knew I sewed….but I had never done applique, or any type of garment sewing. Undaunted, and not having any idea how much I didn’t know about such things, I made a promise. For her graduation, I created a set of six stoles for the different color “seasons” of the church year. One of those creations included over 200 hand-cut and appliqued grapes in varying colors of purples and lavenders. From those pieces came “Pieceful Design” as a concept. The actual business would come a couple of years later.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

* as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
* when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time;
* if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
* as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

* Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
* Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
* Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

* Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
* Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
* Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
* Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Jennifer Brown, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at JBrownNY [!at] msn.com.
