Handmade, one-of-a-kind accessories and home goods from the Read household to yours.

Hi, I'm Kaitlin.

I can't seem to keep my hands still, and even though I have a busy, full-time science career, I'm not fulfilled without the making of things. Furthermore, I'm most enriched by projects that start with inspiration from other makers (fiber artists, jewelry makers, sewists, weavers) and take on a life of their own as I go. I don't like following directions. As such, all of the items in my shop are by my own design (unless otherwise indicated, every once in a while).

I'm deeply inspired and passionate about storied items. For me, the work and attention that go into something directly relate to its value. I want things that speak to me. Because of this, I plan to offer designs that have brought me joy. I hope that they will do the same for you. My offerings will change with the seasons and my mood. There probably won't be duplicates, especially for art pieces that generate their own identity as they're worked.

I hope you can find something here that speaks to you! Thank you for coming by!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
The appearance of fabric/yarn/ribbon colors may vary slightly from the images shown, as computer monitor settings can affect what you see. For this reason, we CANNOT accept returns based on color dissatisfaction alone. If you are concerned with color choices, or would like to see a swatch of the colors available, please let us know! We are more than happy to accommodate.

If for any other reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase, please return it to us by mail within 7 days of receipt. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the item to us, but we will gladly refund the purchase price (minus shipping). We recommend that you track any packages that you return to us, to ensure that they arrive.

We will be happy to work with you to make sure that the piece(s) you order is/are exactly what you want! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any concerns or requests.
We currently only accept payment via PayPal.

Please note that your order will ship shortly after payment clears for “ready to ship” items; made-to-order turn around time will depend on the item requested and will usually be specified in that item's description.
We ship all items via the US Postal Service flat rate Priority Shipping. Currently, we only ship to those in the United States.

Shipping charges are based on the cost of flat-rate shipping for USPS Priority Mail services. We are more than happy to provide tracking for any order placed with our shop.

“Ready to ship” items will be shipped within 24 hours after payment clears. Custom orders will take longer, as specified in the item's description. Sometimes (such as over holidays or when we are away) custom orders may take longer. If this is the case, we will message you shortly after your purchase to let you know. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but since there are only two of us, we work as quickly as we can.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that our pieces are handmade in a home with cats. While we do not allow our pets access to supply storage/finished items, we like to let customers know in case of allergies, etc. If you have concerns about this, please contact us.
