Putting smiles on the faces of knitters since 2007
Winemakerssister is a shop that evolved out of my love of fiber arts and my need to create. I don't sell the materials (yarn, fiber, needles), I sell unexpected treats to make knitters smile.
My stitch markers are characterized by their sense of whimsey and fun. They're created out of a knowledge of knitting -- they're snag-free and practical and designed for specific projects -- but they're also fanciful and tell stories. I simply love that the knitting world has evolved to include fun and beautiful stitch markers, rather than just utilitarian ones.
And the mugs -- you can tell right away that I'm a collector of quotes, phrases, and snippets of prose. I taught calligraphy for many years, and I'm just charmed by the fact that I can now combine it with my love of knitting to make people happy.
My day job at a winery is very demanding, but I'm also drawn to the quiet, solitary work involved in creating items for the shop. Occasionally my day job intrudes into my Etsy time and I have to put orders on hold for a day or two, but usually the two past times work well together.
Owner, Crafter, Winery Manager, Spinning Addict
I'm one of those people who aren't happy unless they have an artistic outlet. My hands need to be busy pretty much all of the time. My shop gives a purpose to my handiwork, and I'm ever so grateful that so many folks enjoy what I make!
Everything is produced from natural products. I love recycled materials and will mention them if used. Everything is HANDMADE!
All items are made in a smoke-free home. My home, however, IS pet friendly. Please keep this in mind if you are purchasing an item for someone allergic to cats or dogs. This is especially important for fabric items, they seem to attract pet hairs the most.
I love trying all sorts of things, so you never know what you'll find here! If you have an idea for something you'd like that I don't make, please let me know. I am extremely open to new ideas! I love trying new things!
I am sorry but I am no longer carving rubber stamps.
WHOLESALE INQUIRIES WELCOME!
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept PayPal (preferred), credit cards through Etsy, and money orders. Sorry folks -- too many bounced checks. I am no longer accepting personal checks.
All international packages are sent international first class. Most international packages take 1-2 weeks to arrive, but if they are delayed in customs they may take up to 4-6 weeks to arrive.
Shipping charges are figured for 1st class postage for items that weigh less than 13 ounces and Priority for those weighing more than 13 ounces. If you'd like faster service, please contact me for adjusted shipping charges. The same is true with insurance. I would be happy to add insurance to your package -- please let me know if you'd like to pay for this service. Once you contact me, I'll set up a custom listing with your individualized shipping preferences.
SHIPPING PRICES: It's difficult to set shipping prices through Etsy's system and have them always be accurate. This is especially true with my painted china. If it works out that you pay too much for shipping, I would be happy to refund the difference. If you'd rather have me set up a custom listing with accurate shipping prices, please contact me. I am happy to do so. At this time, the shipping charges are less than it costs me to ship to some areas in the U.S.
Winemakerssister is not responsible for any damages that occur during shipping. Once your package leaves my hands, I can no longer control the handling.
SHIPPING DELAYS: I make every effort to ship out packages as soon as possible. But after the package leaves my hands, I no longer have any control over it. At that point it's in the hands of the US postal system, sometimes Santa Claus, and sometimes international customs offices. Unfortunately I have no other information than that shown by looking up the tracking number. Once a package is shipped, I send the buyer an email to let them know that it's on its way. The email includes the tracking number for the package. You can follow its journey by looking up the tracking number on the usps.com website.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you wish to return an item, returns are accepted within 7 days in a secure package with delivery confirmation. Please send me the delivery confirmation number. Refunds are less shipping charges. Items must be in the same condition as they were mailed to you.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns. I would hate to learn that you're unhappy by reading your review of the item! If you are not completely happy, PLEASE contact me -- I want to make it right!!!
Unless there are extraordinary circumstances, refunds/returns are not available for custom items.
