Lemons and Lemonade!

We have always loved taking the alternative route, but that was tested last summer, when Melissa unexpectedly received a layoff letter from teaching, while home on maternity leave with their first baby.

About a week later, we left for a planned trip to Rome and London, not knowing what would happen when we returned. We're not sure if it was the lazy breeze of the Italian hillside or the cobblestone streets of our favorite corners of London-town, but we had a "think", and we rallied. Big time.

We decided that Melissa would stay home with our little girl, and we would put our efforts into building our own little business of selling beautiful fabric.

What we pick is what we love, and we hope you do as well. We are always open to suggestions, and love working with other creative people. It's what makes this all worthwhile.

So in between juggling a toddling toddler, dinner time and family walks, we work hard at being a business based on trust and creativity. We love what we do, and we thank you for stopping by, and supporting the efforts of our little family!

    We met on a night out in London eleven years ago ~ since then we have traveled all over, and are settled in Chicago for now. We both enjoy exploring our creative passions of music, cooking, traveling, design, and most importantly, our lovely baby!

If you would like to add insurance to your package, or ship through a different carrier, please convo before your order is placed, so we can make the adjustments. Shipping costs vary greatly based on weight and destination.

Please make sure your the "ship to" address in your PayPal/Etsy account is correct - we ship directly from PayPal or Etsy to avoid any errors in the delivery address.

***If you are ordering more than two yards, please message for a custom listing, and shipping will be adjusted accurately.

All domestic packages are sent via USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail, with delivery confirmation depending on how much fabric is ordered (I search for the best price for you!). If you would like an alternative option, just say. Most packages arrive within 2-5 business days. If you live in Chicago, convo before purchase, as local exchange may be available.

International customers are fabulous ~ we are an International family after all! Blankets and all items are shipped First Class via USPS. International shipping is estimated to take 6-11 business days. Please note it is very difficult to estimate shipping fees for International orders until it is weighed, and the destination is set, so the prices are ESTIMATED, and significant overages will be refunded (above $2). Prices include shipping and handling.

Customs : Items will be marked as "merchandise" with a clear description on the customs form, and all duty/custom fees, etc. are the responsibility of the buyer. If you would like your order shipped in multiple packages, please specify before purchase so adjustments can be made.

Please note, due to geographic variances, shipping is estimated. If your shipping cost is significantly lower than what is charged, a refund will be issued. All shipping rates include handling.
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to {LOVE} your fabric as much as we do. If you receive your fabric and it is not what you had in mind, let us know.

We will consider a return as long as the fabric is unwashed, uncut, unused and is in the same condition in which you received it.

Please note that the return shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer. Returns will only be issued within 30 days of the purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are so much fun, so if you are looking for something in particular, let's chat. We are inspired by the creativity of others!

{New Fabrics}
New fabrics are sold by the yard (we add an extra inch to each cut!), but if you would prefer a half-yard, please convo before purchase, and the price will be adjusted. The half-yard price is half of the full yard price. Larger quantities are also available at the proportionate price. All fabric is cut from the end of the bolt, and an {extra inch} is added for shrinkage.

We try our best to represent the true colors used in the fabrics. New fabrics will include a picture from the manufacturer, as well as a photo taken in our home or back yard using natural lighting. Depending on the computer monitor, colors may vary slightly.

Have a crafter in your life? We would love to send your purchase as a gift to inspire creativity! Just let us know when you make your purchase that it is a gift, and we will gift wrap and include a note from you, free of charge.
