About

Geeky Fiber Fiend

It all started with an 8 year old girl and a crochet hook. That little girl spent all her time designing her own crochet pieces and dreamed of selling them one day.

Soon after learning to crochet, I learned to knit. I spent all my time playing with yarn, designing (admittedly not the greatest) pieces, and pretending to sell them on a table outside my bedroom door. I didn't get many customers, but it was the beginning of a dream.

Over the years, knitting took a back seat and I experimented with many loves, including illustration, watercolors and oil-painting. I even went to school and got degrees in psychology and architecture, but the call of fiber never stopped. In 2009, I gave into my love of fiber. I started my business and found my way back to that original childhood dream. When I learned how to dye my own yarn, I got to combine my love of playing with color, painting and fiber.

I love creating fun accessories and colorful yarn! I hope you love them too.

I believe that yarn is a manifestation of possibility! When I design knit pieces, I am investigating the process of creation and embracing the blank slate that is yarn. When I am dyeing yarn, I feel like I am creating little pieces of possibility to share with the world.

Shipping
We use standard USPS First Class shipping unless otherwise requested. I am happy to offer shipping upgrades, but please keep in mind this will increase the shipping costs. All U.S. packages are shipped with a tracking number.

We care about the environment, and ship only with high quality biodegradable envelopes. When you purchase Toil & Trouble goods, you can be confident that your packaging will not be sitting in a landfill for years to come! These envelopes are also reusable, so we encourage you to re-use your package.

International Packages: I ship international packages using standard USPS Air Mail. If you require insurance or a tracking number, you as the customer are responsible for these additional costs.

Customs and Duties charges: These are charges imposed by the each country's government. The buyer is responsible for paying these charges should they arise.

Once a package has been shipped, it is under the jurisdiction of the Post Office, and we are no longer responsible for the package.
Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is very important to us. In cases of defective product, we are happy to offer returns. Please contact us within 10 days of receiving the item.

For yarn, we happily accept exchanges for items that remain in their original sale condition. This means it must be in the original tagged skein, and free from exposure to scents such as cigarette smoke. We are not able to offer cash refunds, but do offer store credit for returns. To initiate a return, please contact us within 10 days of receiving the product. The item must be received within 45 days of the purchase date.

Please note that shipping costs will not be refunded, nor are we able to extend any previous free shipping to exchanges. Unapproved returns will be refused and returned to the sender.

We are not able to offer returns or exchanges for clothing items, except in cases of defective product.

We do not offer refunds for pattern sales, as these are digital files.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to honor custom order requests. Please contact me for turnaround times as these will vary.

For custom orders, payment must be cleared before I start work on your piece.
