Announcement   Shabee Stitches offers a selection of beautifully appointed wedding accessories such as ring pillows, garters, glove bags and other bridal luxuries. Many have been made from our extensive collection of antique linens, laces and re-purposed vintage fabrics and trim. Many have been appointed with one of a kind trims and crystals, pearls, ribbons and other beadwork, both new and antique. Each is a unique, original work of art. We especially love theme weddings, the unusual, the novel and the romantic.
All of our items are hand made, one at a time, with care and skill. We do not subcontract nor do we purchase anything partially formed and then decorate it. Each item is an original.

Please be aware that size does matter! Measure where you want to wear your garter carefully-your comfort and fit depends on it. Most of our garters are made sized to fit. Any garters we make that are a "generic size" will fit the size range listed comfortably. Guessing at your size will result in a garter that is either to small or too big. Measure

About

Welcome to the world of Shabee Stitches

We create unique, original wedding accessories such as ring pillows, garters, wedding lingerie in traditional, pirate, goth, punk and other styles. Many are made from our antique linens and lace and some from new, interesting fabrics and trims. We also reclaim and repurpose wedding gowns, gowns, trims or laces, and use them to create our products . All have been appointed with antique and modern trims, the finest crystals, pearls, ribbons as well as other beadwork, both new and reclaimed. Each is a unique, original work of art. AND THEY ARE AFFORDABLE! Our designs are created with the belief that every bride should have something beautiful and unique to her wedding to save and pass on from her special day, but be something affordable and luxurious.

All of our items are truly hand made, created one at a time in our small home shop, with care and skill. We do not subcontract nor do we purchase anything partially formed and then decorate it. We are a family run home based business and workshop.

Our garters and ring pillows have been featured in Modern Bride, Brides, West Coast Architecture, Country Living and many blogs such as Brenda's Wedding Blog and Offbeat Bride and many, many Treasuries here on Etsy.

**PLEASE NOTE....... Because many of our materials are reclaimed, each piece from the Shabee Stitches Collection is individually hand-crafted. No two items will be EXACTLY alike and many are one of a kind. Embellishments such as florals, lace, beading etc....may vary depending on availability of materials. Fabrics may also vary.**

Frequently asked questions

How important is an accurate measurement? Can I guess?

Just as in any other garment, size is important. We urge all our clients to measure. Pick the spot where you intend to wear your garter, and with a measuring tape pulled snugly, BUT NOT TIGHT, measure your leg. That number is your leg measure. If your measurement falls between two whole numbers, round up to the nearest whole number. So, 16 1/2 would become 17. Please don't guess, measure. Correct measurement guarantee a proper fit.

I only see one garter in the style I like. Do you have more of them?

Many of our garters are one of a kind due to the fact we make them from vintage fabrics or trims. When a garter is a one of a kind, we will state that in the listing. When we make a one of a kind, we also list the size range it will fit. If you see something you really like and the size range isn't compatible, let us know, we may be able to adjust the garter or make something similar using our vast collection of lace, fabrics and trims.

Are bridal items or custom orders returnable?

Due to the nature of bridal items, they are not returnable. Neither are customized or personalized orders.

What if you run out of lace or trims for my garter or ring pillow?

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SUBSTITUTE PICTURED LACES FOR LACES THAT ARE AVAILABLE. SINCE EACH ITEM IS HANDCRAFTED INDIVIDUALLY THERE MAY BE VARIATIONS IN LACES AND TRIMS DUE TO AVAILABILITY. IF WE MAKE A SUBSTITUTION, IT WILL BE AN ITEM OF EQUAL SIZE, COLOR AND HIGHER VALUE . VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE LACES AND TRIMS ARE PURELY A MATTER OF AVAILABILITY AND WE MAY NEED TO SUBSTITUTE A NEWER, MODERN LACE IF WE ARE UNABLE TO FIND A SUITABLE MATCH. WE WILL MATCH FOR COLOR-EXAMPLE-IF THE ITEM HAS BLACK LACE, THE ONE YOU RECEIVE WILL ALSO HAVE BLACK LACE, BUT THE DESIGN MAY BE DIFFERENT. IN ALL CASES, IF WE SUBSTITUTE, WE CHOOSE A HIGHER QUALITY, HIGHER COST LACE.

I don't have a Paypal account or a credit card. Can you help me?

We accept Paypal and money orders, cashier checks and certified checks. Debit and credit cards are accepted through Paypal as well as directly through Etsy. IF YOU ARE PAYING BY MONEY ORDER, CERTIFIED CHECK OR CASHIER'S CHECK, WE EXPECT TO BE NOTIFIED OF THAT FACT AND WE WILL HOLD YOUR MERCHANDISE FOR NO LONGER THAN 10 DAYS. IF YOUR CHECK HAS NOT ARRIVED BY THE END OF 10 DAYS, YOUR ORDER WILL BE CANCELLED AND APPROPRIATE FEEDBACK WILL BE LEFT.

NOTICE; WE EXPECT ALL INVOICES, REGARDLESS OF THE PURPOSE (ADDITIONAL SHIPPING,SPECIAL AMENITIES, ETC.) TO BE PAID AND CLEARED BEFORE WE SHIP AN ORDER.

What are your shipping methods?

We ship within the continental US via US Priority Mail with delivery confirmation AND ARE INSURED UP TO $50.00. We make every attempt to ship your package within 24-48 HOURS of payment received. Custom orders will have shipping times decided upon at ordering.
We ship to the address you provide for us. If the address is incorrect or the USPS tells us the address is undeliverable, we will attempt to reach you by email at least twice. If we fail to receive an answer within 4 days, we will refund your payment and notify you that we have cancelled your order. We will not be responsible for shipments that have gone to an incorrect address.
International orders go by First Class or for an additional fee, Priority with a Customs form done clearly.

How quickly can you get me my item?

We never shelve an order. We go to work on them as soon as they are received. However, some months are busier than others during wedding season such as May and September and October. We make every possible effort to ship before our stated shipping date but no later than the quoted date. If, for some unforeseen reason, we are going to be late, we will notify you and set another date that is mutually satisfactory.
