Bringing Style to the Stitch...

RosyRetro® loves providing quality tools and the knitting/crochet & fiber community worldwide!
As a knitter, spinner, weaver and crochet craftswoman I understand the need for good reliable tools and notions.

I aim to provide a unique quality bespoke service with top customer satisfaction! Working in the retail industry, I strongly believe in shopping being a happy experience with the customer feeling content and owning something that will bring them happiness in their daily life. This is why RosyRetro® products and service can only be found right here!

Rockabilly meets French vintage, Tokyo pop and American retro with a bit of historical influence (I love Tudor history and architecture)
That in a nutshell is the RosyRetro® style!

First & foremost I have a passion for quality and customer service! If the customer's happy, then I'm happy.This is so important to me and I really like to provide items that I myself would be happy to buy!
My business is named after a beloved Irish great grandmother called Nana Polly Rose, who had a heart of gold and always had time for everyone.

I love and quality and am inspired by a mix of retro vintage contrasted with POP culture and the art world....
I also love street art and french & american vintage so all of these factors filter into my work....

RosyRetro® also exists to bring the wonder of yarny goodness into everyones lives....a quiet moment spinning a rare fiber...a lunch break spent knitting by a stream...these are the moments that are important to bring a pace and breath to modern life.

Rosy Retro brings colour and a smile into your home from the heart of the green hills of south Devon in the U.K.
I believe the customer is always right and in quality items that last a lifetime.

Rosy Retro loves KNITTERS & CROCHET people too!
I sell lots of goodies for your projects in my Etsy shop

All stitch markers are 'tested' using a firm pull test and made with attention to detail, snag etc. I feel this quality is very important for these little tools we all use so often! I always welcome feedback!!

The project bag designs incorporate vivid colours inspired by trips to America & Japan. Delicious hues from citrus limes to candy pinks...a contemporary mix of visual pop culture using fabric imports such as Michael Miller and Robert kauffman, along with locally sourced materials and genuine vintage or unusual fabrics.

I have a Ba (Hons) degree in Theatre and Art and this strongly influences all my work with a strong professional ethic.

I have years of professional sewing experience from making and sourcing theatre costumes and I also love English Paper patchwork , weaving and knitting.

All items are designed and made with the utmost quality and fabrics.

RosyRetro wants to bring happiness, colour, quality and style into the home, beauty being paramount to enjoyment of ones environment...

Rosy Retro has gone from strength to strength with vibrant new designs being added on a regular basis... (see customer reviews...)

At present, the company is still run solely by Tabs Tebay (me!) , a Sole Trader (and active member of ravelry Knitting community!) with a strong design background in textile design (and a mad multi-tasker with 2 dogs, 2 teenage sons and my lovely husband!)

COME ON IN AND MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME (and see the vibrant colour & service for yourself!)xx

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised 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 of stitch markers, 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, such as by signing up for any mailing list I may provide for my business;
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 to improve 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 about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

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 may , only if appropriate to a specific order, share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
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.

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 UK 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.

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:

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.
