Crafty Alchemy - The Home of Craft Kits for Creative People

Hello and welcome to Crafty Alchemy

I'm Claire, the creator of Crafty Alchemy, I first opened my virtual shop doors in 2012 and haven't looked back since.

I have designed a range of "Make Your Own" felt sewing kits to make felt characters like Mr Owl and his family or the very popular Christmas Decoration Kits . All of the felt sewing kits have been created with easy to follow instructions so they are perfect for people with either no sewing skills or advanced sewing skills.

I have also created a mix of handmade felt embellishments which are perfect for all types of crafting and the embellishments are all designed to add extra texture, dimension and a little something special to all types of craft projects such as scrapbooking, card making or home decor projects.

We also have a range of super cute button badges to help you send that perfect message to a special someone.

All of our products start out as drawings in my sketchbook and then I bring them to life using products that, where ever possible, are sourced and manufactured here in the UK as we think supporting other UK businesses is pretty important too.

My aim with Crafty Alchemy and my kits is to encourage everyone to get crafty and to make it as accessible and enjoyable as possible for everyone regardless of age or crafty experience. All of these kits contain everything you need, apart from the scissors and a cup of tea, to make the item in the kit.

All orders I receive are packed carefully with lots of Crafty Alchemy love, after all who doesn't love receiving and opening pretty packages? I know I do!

I hope you enjoy being creative with my craft kits and embellishments as much as I enjoy designing and creating them.

Happy crafting!

International customers please note:
Overseas packages are sent tracked by Royal Mail, which is unfortunately more expensive than regular airmail, but it is much more reliable. You also only pay postage charges on one item, there are no postage charges on any additional items ordered at the same time.

***International parcels can take between two and six weeks to reach their destination and a parcel is not considered lost by Royal Mail (our mail service provider) until 25 working days have passed since postage, I am unable to consider replacing or refunding lost parcels until the 25 working days have passed***

If you require your purchases to be sent via courier, please start an Etsy convo before placing your order so I can get you a quote of the courier costs.
Alongside this if the postage you have paid is considerably more than the actual cost of postage I will automatically refund the difference back to you.

Any customs fees incurred are the responsibility of the buyer. (If you're unsure if charges would be applicable please check with the customs authority for your country)

All items are packed with care & consideration, and are wrapped in recycled packaging wherever possible.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 6 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
