Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.
I accept payment via PayPal, check, or money order. Please note that payments via check, money order, or PayPal eCheck will take a few days to clear.
Returns & exchanges
Customer satisfaction matters! If you have questions or concerns regarding your purchase, please contact me, and I will be happy to work with you.
Physical items can be returned for a replacement or a refund within 30 days.
Due to their nature, digital items cannot be returned. However, I am happy to send replacement copies of patterns if your files are lost, corrupted, or otherwise incorrect.
I am happy to take custom orders. Feel free to contact me with your ideas and we can discuss options. Please know in advance that my policy is not to make items from trademarked characters (Hello Kitty, Disney princesses, etc.), or to make direct copies of others' work.
Trades are fun! However, my house is also quite full, so, I usually only accept trades for consumable items (yarn, spinning fiber, soap, food, etc.)
Buying for children:
Many of my items contain small or breakable pieces, and as such, are not safe for very young children (particularly those under the age of 3) Please feel free to contact me with questions and comments about age-appropriate toys.
Help with Patterns:
I do post the odd mini-tutorial and clarification here: http://needlenoodles.com/home/?q=taxonomy/term/5
or, contact me via Etsy convo.
I do not break up patterns containing multiple projects into cheaper single-project patterns. The rationale is that, once the labor cost of re-doing page layout is taken into consideration, the price of an individually customized pattern would be greater than that of the original pattern set.
Other Sellers Selling Items Made From My Patterns:
I am generally okay with individual crafters making use of my patterns in items that they sell. However, I do ask that they give credit to me for the design. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
