Item details

This is an elegant vintage needlepoint pattern from 1980, titled "The Imperial Chrisanthemum" [sic] by Joan D. Gantt, and published by Heritage Designs. The pattern book includes sections on the stitches used, a stitching guide, general instructions, and one chart. The pattern includes 20 stapled pages, although they are unnumbered.

This pattern does not seem to be missing any pages, although the chart included is only for the outline around the other elements. While written instructions are given for the other parts of the design (central flowers, butterflies), there is no chart for them. From reading the pattern I suspect that this was intentional, but it will require some independence on the part of the person working the pattern.

The pattern has obviously been used, but is in good condition.

I ship using USPS. Once I place your order in the mail, I will contact you to let your know that your item is on its way!

All of my CROWNS and CANDLES ship Priority mail, which includes a tracking number and $50.00 insurance.

If you would like rush shipping, or insurance or a tracking number on regular parcel post, please contact me before purchase. The post office may not allow smaller items of mail to be tracked.

I am happy to get shipping estimates for international customers.

To save you money, and do my little bit towards "saving the earth," I sometimes re-use boxes, packing paper and newspaper for shipping out items, and scrap paper for shipping labels. Be assured that I only use clean, sturdy materials for this purpose.

I cannot be held responsible for damage that occurs while the item is in the mail. If insurance was purchased for your package, please save the information, the package and the item and take photos if possible, so a claim can be filed. If your item was lost in the mail, please notify me so that we can work to rectify the situation.

I ship to the address listed on Paypal, and cross-check it with Etsy. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure that your address on Etsy and Paypal are correct. If Paypal cannot confirm your address, I may contact you in a convo asking that you double-check the information, and will wait until you reply to ship the item.

If a package is returned to me because of an incorrect address:

-If the error was mine (for instance, in copying out the shipping label), I will gladly re-ship the item or give a full refund...

-If item was ready-made, I can re-ship the item. The customer will need to pay for shipping again. Alternatively, I can keep the item for re-sale and refund the price of the item--but not shipping costs.

-Customized items will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. I can re-ship the item, and the customer will have to pay for shipping again. If I believe that I may be able to re-sell the item, I may refund a percentage of item price--but not shipping--and keep the item for re-sale.
