About

Beagles were just the start of my little sewing enterprise. My product line is now filled with all kinds of dogs and other furry friends

I was born in Billinge in the mid 1970's. I grew up with a strong fear of dogs. So much so I would scale fences if one was in sight. Unknown to myself my sister had been pleading for a dog, when she achieved a class prize they decided to finally give in. Sandy the Fallowfield Beagle moved in, a strong minded angel/devil dog. My life was to change for ever. He was my life. I walked him in the Cheshire countryside most weekends, whilst cherishing the scenery and wildlife that was all around me. I could name most common british birds and watched the hedgerows for foxes and rabbits.

I went to art college in Lancashire, on to Leeds College of Art and Design before completing my art studies at Huddersfield University. I studied print and surface pattern design but my sewing machine was always by my side. I dabbled at freelancing, producing card and gift wrap designs which were sold in America, I made wedding invitations too before settling in an alternative career. Being creative would always be my true passion, but without the world wide web and social networking sites it was a difficult market to compete in.

How life would change. My family are the proud owners of a nutty beagle, Evie. She came to us as a pup from Gilcoru Beagles in Wales. We became members of a Facebook group, BeaglesUK. We walked with other local beagle owners and made many new friends. I had been experimenting with my art work and decided to make a fabric beagle brooch. The hand sewn brooch design was slow to make and soon developed into a machine embroidered hanging decoration. I discovered that people were willing to pay for my beagle creations and I haven't looked back since.

I now create a range of appliqued and embroidered dogs, cats, popular pets and wildlife on a range of textile and paper products. My range of work is constantly growing and I often ask for suggestions of new breeds to create.

DISPATCH TIMES

Dispatch times are currently quoted to allow for my adhock working pattern. I usually post out Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. Dispatch times can be delayed if your order needs personalising.

If you require an order sooner that the estimated 2-7 day dispatch please message me before placing your order so I can advise if I can meet your requirement.

I aim to dispatch personalised orders within 21 working days and stock items within 7 working days.

I always send a dispatch email to advise when I have posted your order, occasionally I may be delayed in sending the email even though I have posted your order earlier. This automated email does not allow me to add a previous date so will show the date the email was generated only.

Please double check your address is correct as mistakes cannot be rectified after purchase.

DELIVERY OPTIONS

Domestic UK orders:

* UK delivery is sent Second Class with Royal Mail.
* Upgrade to Signed for service is available at an additional cost.
* I obtain a "certificate of posting" for all orders that have been sent as proof of postage.
* Please check your postal address is correct before completing your purchase.
* Address mistakes can not be rectified after purchase is completed.

International* Orders:

* Delivery is by standard International airmail.
* This service does not include any tracking.
* Upgrade to International Tracked service is available at an eadditional cost.
* Please check your postal address is correct before completing your purchase.
* Address mistakes can not be rectified after purchase is completed.
* Any customs duty / fees charged are the responsibility of the buyer.

***Unfortunately TRACKING IS NOT INCLUDED as standard with the Royal Mail postal service.

Tracking does not mean the delivery will be any quicker and can provides only limited updates once the item reaches the out bound airport.


WHERE IS MY ORDER?

Missing parcel? I obtain a "certificate of posting" for all items.

This proves the Post Office have accepted the package and is now in their hands.


* Have you checked with your local sorting office? Especially if it's an item that may not fit through your letter box. Recently I have had items returned that haven't been collected from the sorting office as no delivery card was left.


Your package is not considered missing by Royal Mail until the following times

* If sent to an UK address; two weeks have passed since your parcel was posted,

* If sent to an International address; a full month has passed since your parcel was posted.

* Claims cannot be processed until this period of time has passed.

* Please contact me via Etsy Conversation (Message Seller) with any concerns.



Unfortunately these delays do happen during peak postal seasons.

* Specific delays are noted with the Canadian postal service currently.

* Delays can be through the amount of post being sent through Royal Mail; due to items being delayed whilst passing through customs or due to adverse weather or incidents causing delays to the post whilst in transit.

* Items can also become damaged in transit or when passing through the mail sorting machines. These usually make their way back to the sender. If this happens I will contact you via Etsy conversation to tell you it has been returned.

* Tracking Upgrades - International tracking does not always show the exact location of packages. I have found they can be delayed in US customs for example but still show as not having left Heathrow Airport. If you are worried about a tracked package please message me so I can call Royal Mail for a more accurate update than the computer system shows.



All of the above is out of my control and claims for missing post can only be made after a set period of time has passed (as per Royal Mail's policies).



* If I'm on vacation I usually leave my shop open but will only be able to follow up any missing mail when I return. Details of these dates will always be in my shop announcement. Please send me a message via Etsy conversation including your order number for me to follow up on my return.

Best Wishes

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I can only add a name to the fabric decorations. The stitched name must be short enough to fit in the body space. If the decoration is wearing a jumper I will need to add a little plain patch to sew the name onto.

My smaller wooden laser cut decorations can not be personalised at all. They are smaller than the fabric decorations and obviously, as they are made of wood, it is impossible to sew a name onto them ;)

I can only take requests for different breeds or colours. I will do my best to accommodate requests but can not commit to actual custom orders due to my limited working hours, work load and young family. To make a request please send me a message via Etsy conversation.

Love Ren x

Do you have different breeds?

Yes!! I make any breed, or pet even. During the busy Holiday seasons all available options will be listed in my shop. I will consider requests for fabric items I haven’t made before or am out of stock for but this does depend on my current work load.
