About

Crazy About Designing or is it Designing About Crazy?

My quilting story began decades ago with traditional quilts. Then, right before retiring I "found" crazy quilting which allows me to add embroidery, silk ribbon flowers, beads and baubles, lace, and just about any other object to my quilts. This has truly changed my life as I've ventured into teaching classes, designing patterns, and writing books.

Designing my own class patterns fueled a desire to provide other types of patterns, and this little shop was born from that. My patterns are traditional and crazy quilting with some embroidery and applique in the mix...because as a quilter, I enjoy creating all types of quilts.

To share knowledge of crazy quilting, I offer free online courses through my blog at shawkl.com; these are open for registration throughout the year at specific times. Just check out the calendar under the TAB about courses on my blog.

Recently, I partnered with Amazon to publish several books on crazy quilting. A workbook came first (black and white); then several full color books (Volume I, 2, &3 about Crazy Quilting Basics, Silk Ribbon, and Seams).

In 2019, my first book with C&T Publications will be available. "Stunning Stitches" is a catalog of 480 different seam designs with full color designs and instructions.

A collaboration with Creative Impressions has resulted in the production of acrylic templates for marking embroidery seams. These can be used in crazy quilting or standard sewing applications. More templates are also in the works that will use specific shapes to guide markings. So, I'm still busy designing all sorts of things for quilters and embroiders alike!

Hope you enjoy the visit to the shop. :)

Thank you for considering a purchase from my Etsy Studio.
All of my cabochons are beaded by myself and are not mass produced.
Each is carefully constructed to provide a beautiful end result that my customers should be proud to own...as I take pride in creating them!

Returns and exchanges
All cabochons are wrapped in bubble wrap with cardboard surrounds. If they are broken in transit I will refund their original cost less shipping or replace them at no cost provided you notify me within 30 days of shipment. To receive a refund a photo of the damaged item or return of the item is necessary.
Payment
Paypal is my preferred method for payment; but credit cards, money orders, checks, etc can be processed. Any method chosen other than paypal may require a delay in shipping however until the funds are received into my account.
Shipping
I ship next day first class. For combined orders, priority shipping might be available. International shipping is the cheapest method unless you contact me separately for other available options. Routinely, I do not include insurance, confirmation, or tracking to keep the shipping cost low. However, I can do any/all of these extras if you want to front the funds for that service.
