***I have a lot of requests for patterns that have non-standard amounts (5/8 yard, 3/8 yard, etc.), so if you have a certain pattern in mind, I can cut the exact amounts you need of each print so you don't end up with heaps of scrap leftovers. That is, for example, why I have made a kit for almost every pattern in Tilda's newest book, Sunshine Sewing, with non-standard cuts!

Welcome to The Surgeon's Knots! I look forward to sharing my favorite things with you! I have been sewing and cross stitching since the 1970's. After my boys became old enough to fend for themselves, I was able to start sewing and quilting and pursuing needlework once again. I will be sharing my own designs as well!

I do accept returns and exchanges on unused items, excluding needlework items. I will accept cancellations on the same day of order. Copyright laws do not allow returns for cross stitch leaflets/charts, needlework designs or kits. I also don't accept returns for downloads. If there is a problem with your order, please email me so I can resolve the issue.

Please contact me right away if you are disappointed with an item to resolve any issues BEFORE you leave negative feedback. I value my customer's satisfaction and my Etsy reputation is important to me.

About

Tilda Stockist, Tilda Kits, Lecien Fabrics and a smattering of lovely fabrics!

I have sewn, worked different needleworks and crocheted since I was a kid. I was a T.A. for the Math/Physics teacher and the Home Economics teacher in High School...weird combo, right? I guess I'm pretty "level-headed" with both the right and left brain hemispheres being developed...I apologize now and for the future for all the bad puns! I pursued all these interests until I started medical school. After my oldest son was diagnosed with autism, I "retired" from clinical practice to advocate for him and to learn all his various activities and therapies in order to create continuity at home. His younger brother arrived 2 years later...since then life has been busier than in residency! When my boys got older, high school and junior high school, there was finally time for me to pursue my own interests again, 25 years after starting medical school. I bought a sewing machine and a digital camera (my dad gave me my first brownie camera when I was 7 years old) and here we are!

Frequently asked questions
Shipping Questions

I ship packages based on weight. Up to 1 lb ships first class. If you want it to ship priority, please let me know in the order notes and I will send an invoice for the difference. Everything over 1 lb ships priority.

More Shipping Questions

TO REDUCE WEIGHT AND SHIPPING COSTS, I will remove the cardboard from layer cakes and charm packs. If they are rolled, I will lay them flat. Shipping should be less than $5.00 for a single layer cake and less than $3.00 for a single charm pack. Jelly rolls are laid flat to fit in an envelope, reducing weight and shipping costs to generally less than $5.00 for a single jelly roll. Fat quarters that are 1 lb or less may be split to fit into an envelope, reducing costs to generally less than $5.00. If you would like to have the charm pack, layer cake, jelly roll or fat quarter intact, please notify me in the notes upon checkout. Just remember, anything that goes into a box will cost more for shipping. I do combine shipping for multiple items.

Refund on Shipping Costs?

I WILL REFUND SHIPPING OVERCHARGES THAT ARE MORE THAN $1.00!
