About

I have always had a thing for sewing and textile art allows me to indulge a great passion for fabrics and fibres and to explore the boundless possibilities that materials can offer. I love to heat manipulate synthetic fabrics, design and create unusual flower sculptures, dye fabrics and fibres and mix and match combinations of everyday fabrics, lace and fibres. Textile art is my world and I am always on the look out for new inspiration.
Creating 3D textile art through free machine embroidery is an ongoing theme for me and I love to make embroidered vessels, tea light holders and candle holders. The discovery of Angelina fibres gives the items a little additional and unique sparkle.
I also enjoy making bespoke bunting fit for any occasion - Shabby Chic is an obsession of mine and of course an abundance of lace needs to be included into their designs.
My new thing is to make soy candles. This evolved from not being able to source the colourful tea lights that are incorporated into the Angelina fibre embroidered holders -so I decided to take the plunge and learn a new process. Hand pouring tea lights morphed into creating Eco friendly soy wax candles and these just had to be decorated with lace....everything lace!!
I hope you enjoy all of the shop items and delight in looking around my world of Fibre and stitch.
Best wishes,
Sara.

Delivery
As the items in Fibreandstitch's shop are pre made, they are ready to ship in 1 business day after payment has been received. If a custom order has been discussed a delivery schedule will be arranged.

Your order will be carefully and thoughtfully wrapped, packaged and shipped to you.

COMBINED SHIPPING - Combined shipping is available for most of the items in the shop. However, some items weigh different amounts and sometimes cannot be shipped together in the same package for fear of damage during transit - a candle and an embroidered vessel for example. Any excess postage paid in these circumstances will be refunded by Fibreandstitch. I will gladly refund any shipping that has been charged above the actual cost. If you're buying several items from my shop and would prefer me to let you know in advance what the combined shipping cost will be, please send me a message and I will be happy to let you know.

All items shipped in the U.K are sent by Royal Mail and Fibreandstitch ships worldwide via Royal Mail Air Mail. Items with a value of under £20 are sent as standard or signed for/tracked shipping. The option to upgrade to tracked delivery/signed for delivery/confirmation of delivery can be chosen during the checkout process. This is advisable for international shipping.

Products with a value of £20 and above are shipped in the U.K and internationally as tracked delivery, tracked and signed for delivery or confirmation of delivery. This allows for both Fibreandstitch and the customer to be updated as to the items progress during its shipment time and to insure delivery. If you live in the U.S and prefer to not sign for an item, tracking alone is available without the required signature. Please see the available option at checkout. If an item in the shop has a 'free shipping' badge, the product will be shipped as standard delivery.

Please note anything shipped abroad may be subject to import taxes. Tax and import duties are the responsibility of the customer.

International parcels may be delayed by the Customs process and once a parcel is shipped it is out of my control. Please allow approximately 2 - 4 weeks for international deliveries.

Fibreandstich cannot be held responsible for a parcel if the wrong delivery address has been given!
