Policies & Privacy
Thank you for visiting me!
Each of my embroideries is stitched by hand. From the initial design concept to completion, I often spend hours on each piece. Pieces come ready to hang/display and are perfect as a gift to someone else or yourself!
All prices are in US Dollars and payment must be made in full before a piece will ship. In the case of a custom piece, price will be determined before work begins and payment must be made in full before I begin creating your piece. I accept all major credit cards via my website.
It is very important to me that you have a good experience when purchasing one of my pieces of art, so please reach out if you have any questions. Due to the nature (art) of my work, however, I do not accept returns or exchanges. Therefore, please be sure to read item descriptions carefully and note dimensions and specifications (including shipping details) before making a purchase. Also consider that color variations may exist due to your monitor settings. I am very careful in how I photograph and describe my pieces, because I want you to receive what you believe you are receiving. However, I cannot be held responsible for color variations that may be a result of monitor settings.
