A Patchwork Apparel Book by Jean Wells shows all kinds of techniques for embellishing clothing using quilt designs. It includes basic design techniques such as color and balance. It shows how to use the log cabin block, hearts, grandmother’s fan block and string patchwork in clothing. The book describes how buttons, laces, ruffles and ribbons can embellish the patchwork. This is more of an idea book than a how to book but it has lots of photos and drawings to inspire your next piece of clothing using patterns you already have. Published in 1981 by Yours Truly Publication. This book is used but in good condition with a rough spot on the inside cover where a price sticker was removed and the edges of the cover are slightly worn.
I ship most things within a day or two after receiving payment (or when the check has cleared). I use USPS Priority Mail or Parcel Post for most items. USPS allows items to be shipped to most addresses including Post Office boxes. For bigger items, I might use UPS if it is cheaper. I will combine items when possible to save you on the shipping cost.
The shipping and handling are actual costs. Sometimes due to the size of an item (but necessarily the weight), the shipping cost will be higher.
For Christmas holiday delivery, orders must be placed before December 15. I will mail orders after that date but I cannot guarantee a Christmas delivery due to an increase in the shipping activity at this time of the year. There is no guarantee delivery with any international shipping (once it leaves the US, the USPS has no control over how long your order takes to get to your home.)
I accept PayPal, money orders and personal checks. If you pay by check, I will ship your items as soon as the check clears. Please be patient if you choose money orders or check as it will take some time for me to receive and process your payment.
Returns & exchanges
Items may be exchanged or refunded up to 2 weeks after receiving your item, provided it is in the same condition as when I shipped it. Please let me know about any problem as soon as possible so I may have a chance to make things right.
