Announcement    The word "provisions" makes me think of delicious things that you put together to take on a picnic. My aim is that people who create things will find delectable treats in this store.

These goodies might be:
A book that inspires you.
A perfect recycled button.
A pattern that was published before you were born, but you love it anyway.
A special yarn.

I've moved the instant-download PDF patterns for my original crochet hat designs, previously available in this shop, to my other Etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/HatsbyElvee

About

The evolution of me

My stuff can't stop blabbing about me.

It wants you to know that I was once obsessed with Elizabeth Zimmermann, the beloved knitting designer and writer. I needed to read everything that she'd written, even buying back issues of her newsletters. If she recommended a book, I'd buy it, sight unseen.

My stuff will tell you about my fascination with quilting, and then dollmaking.

It will tell you that I loved ethnic garments and intricate embroidery. Art-to-wear and Lois Ericson. Knitting socks. Sashiko.

And don't get my stuff started on how I'm stuck on the Seventies! (Purple, orange and avocado will never, ever go out of style!)

Yes, my stuff will tell you that my creative journey has been a long and winding road.

And that's a good thing, right?

Shipping costs

I use Etsy calculated shipping, and it is very accurate almost all of the time. I refund any excess shipping charge of $1 or more.

Sewing patterns are shipped in rigid, eco-friendly mailers at the package rate, which is higher than the letter rate. The rigid mailers protect the patterns, and the package rate includes tracking so you can check to see when your pattern will arrive.
