Returns & exchanges
Since items are digital, they are not returnable. I'm an honest seller, and I take a lot of photos- so you'll know what you are getting. If I miss something- let me know. Communication is key.
If you order something physical that's not custom and change your mind, I'll happily exchange it if it is unworn-providing you pay the return shipping.
A couple of notes-
Hand crafted items are by their nature perfectly imperfect. It's part of their charm.
Hand dyed items will have an uneven finish, and hand stitched appliques look hand stitched. (If you want perfectly even stitches, look for the word "machine applique" in my listings. It's a different look.)
Custom orders require full payment in advance.
Additional information for those buying embroidery designs: You'll need the hardware and software to transfer these designs to your embroidery/sewing machine. They are sent in an email as an attached file.
All of my designs are manually digitized. Autodigitizing is sketchy at best. I use a variety of textures, and take the time to adjust angles and fill rates to be sure these designs look their best. It's a time consuming process. I always include underlay stitching, to prevent pulling in the design. These are included in the final stitch counts. I personally test each design on a Janome MC10001, then I have volunteer testers test them on a Bernina and at least one other machine, prior to offering them for sale.
I retain the copyright to my designs (sometimes I purchase clipart for digitizing in which case only the digitized designs are copyrighted to me). You may certainly make items for giving or selling, but please do not resell / share / trade or otherwise give out my design files. My designs are hand-drawn by me, unless otherwise noted.
All of my designs are originally saved in JAN or EXP format. Then they are converted to the format you need. I include a template and a color chart with my designs. You may ask for any of the following formats: Tajima - DST Janome - Jef Deco Brother/ Babylock – PES Husqvarna Viking – HUS Janome / Elna / Kenmore – SEW Pfaff – PCS Singer – XXX
I'm currently working on getting BX format for my fonts- hope to have that soon. Please ask about others. Thanks!
