Announcement   Hello and welcome to SewCreativeSTL !
STL being for St. Louis, MO.

I have been selling on Etsy since 2009, with over 1500 sales.

*** If you have found me through IG and want to purchase something I posted on there - just send me a message. I do a lot of custom orders and don't always have a listing for everything. ***

Processing time for most orders is about 7-10 days - PLEASE contact me if you have a certain date that you need an item shipped by, BEFORE you order, thank you. Please do not order and write in the comments that you need the item in a few days, I may not be able to make your time frame if you do not contact me BEFORE your order. If you need an item before my stated time frame (about a week to make, then shipping time), you might need to purchase a Rush Fee/Priority Shipping upgrade that I will send you the link to purchase.

I am the sole maker/creator of my items - I work by myself in my home and I am not ebay or amazon :) I simply craft when I can fit it in between my busy family life and church ministry.

I have had a love of creating since I could hold scissors! I currently am doing a lot of applique and embroidery on baby and kids items and guitar straps, with the occasional 'home' item as well. I put a lot of time and effort into my creations, and I would not send you something that I would not put on my own family or give as a gift myself.

I do custom orders, email or convo me with requests.

Follow me on FB and Instagram - I post pics of recent orders :)

About

Embroidery and Applique for Kids and Babies

I have always loved sewing and crafting. In 2004 after we had been married 2 years, my husband (pictured in my bio pic :) bought me my first 'real' sewing and embroidery machine so I could make and possibly sell embroidery/applique items in my free time while I wasn't working as an RN. It was a big investment for us at the time - and I still have the machine and still love it - a Bernina Artista.

After several years of learning the machine and building my fabric stash, I started my Etsy store in 2009. I started out selling all things baby - monogrammed onesies and burp cloths, etc. One day I got a custom request for some items for twins, so I came up with some ideas (most I still sell in my shop today), made them for the customer and then listed them in my shop too.

I have sold the most of my "Buy One" and "Get One Free" design. As the years went on other started copying my design, but mine was the first :)

In 2012 my business had grown such that I needed a bigger embroidery machine, so I purchased a Brother 6 needle. Most days I use both machines - my Bernina and Brother.

I still work as an RN, have a wonderful husband, and I home school my 2 children, and we are very involved in our local church.

I make every item I sell, in my home, in my 'free time'. When you purchase from me you are truly purchasing handmade. Thank you for reading, have a blessed day !

Warmly, Leah K

Welcome to my etsy shop! I have been sewing and embroidering for over 8 years, selling here on Etsy since 2009. I make a lot of items for babies and children, my most popular set is my own original creation, a set of embroidered and appliqued twin onesies that say "Buy One" and "Get One Free".

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept paypal and credit cards. I discourage cancellations - just because it wastes my time and yours! If you are unsure if you want to order an item - just start a conversation with me and we'll talk before you order. However I am not an unreasonable person, if extenuating circumstances arise, we can work something out. If I get an order and haven't received payment or any communication from you in 3 days (email or convo), I will contact etsy to cancel the order.

I make and ship orders in the order that I receive them along with payment. Timely payment after ordering is appreciated.


If you do a paypal e-check, I do wait until it has cleared before I ship it out - which is usually 3-5 business days.
Shipping
I ship domestically with the USPS - usually first class or priority mail - depending on the weight. If the item's shipping is more than $5 it is priority. I ship out the same day or next day after the item is completed, which completion time is 7-10 days.

I ship to a few international destinations - USPS First Class - please contact me if you are wanting to place an international order for more than one set as shipping will be more because of the weight.

PLEASE make sure your address is the same in etsy and paypal - if it is not I will have to contact you to verify it and it might delay shipping your item if I have to wait to hear from you.
Refunds and Exchanges
Items are generally nonreturnable - however if you get your item and are unhappy with it - please contact me and we will work something out. I lovingly make each item I sell and put a lot of thought and effort into it - I want you to be happy with it as well. I generally don't purchase insurance on shipping - if you want insurance please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Processing Time = 7-10 days. I sell on etsy, and also locally, and have a busy family and I am an RN!! - So it just depends on how many orders I have in that particular week, as well as what is happening in life! I will convo you if it will be longer than that timeframe. I *usually* am faster than that, but I have to state that for those weeks that have more volume than others.
