Announcement   Stitching in Circles' lapel pins, statement brooches, and decoratieve, embellished hairpins are all created from cotton and silk yoyos and vintage buttons. Each is one of a kind, hand-stitched, upcycled, and beautiful. I am a proud member of Team Eco Etsy! The fabrics are all cotton, wool, or silk, and the buttons are mostly vintage -- I label each listing clearly if the buttons or fabrics are newer. I love the look of a lapel pin or brooch made out of a soft collage of yoyos or a cotton flower. It adds a delicacy to any outfit.

Lots more are to come!

Thank you for your interest in Stitching in Circles! All the items in my shop would not exist if it were not for my mother. She has been sewing since she was a child, and she quilts, knits, and embroiders with such enthusiasm that it finally rubbed off on me. Additionally, all the yoyos that feature in my designs are scraps from her mountainous fabric collection -- and many of the buttons were rescued from her treasure of a button box, full of vintage and antique buttons, some from *her* mother's button box! Both of my great-grandmothers on my mother's side were seamstresses, so it carries on a ways back.

I learned to sew from my mother and hope to carry on the tradition to my children, too. I live in California and sew everything I sell on Etsy in my spare time in the little Berkeley house I share with my boyfriend. I am finishing my PhD soon, so who knows where we'll all be in 6 months, but we are loving the household we have now.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I prefer Paypal, but major credit cards are accepted too (here on Etsy, they are processed through Paypal, but you don't need an account with Paypal to use your card), and will ship at most two days after receiving payment.
Shipping
I prefer to use either recycled or home-made weatherproof envelopes for small orders or flat-rate padded envelopes (cost of shipping: $5) for larger ones, and I prefer to go through USPS. With smaller orders, if shipping and handling cost less than my general policies indicate, I am happy to refund any excessive fees.

I choose not to include paper invoices in order to lighten my impact on the earth, and because a record of your purchase will always be available to you at Etsy.

International customers: be aware that you may have to pay a fee at customs for importing goods, even if they are a gift!
Refunds and Exchanges
I recommend buying shipping insurance if you are concerned about the safety of your item on its travels.

If you are dissatisfied and would like to return the item, I will accept returns of undamaged goods mailed back by you up to one week after you have received my creation.
