Have a look at what some of our happy customers have to say about our custom service.


"Our pattern came out beautifully and the shop owner worked personally with me to get every detail exactly how I wanted it. I have recommended the shop to all my crafty friends!"


"I am very pleased with this purchase! Because this is a custom item, communication with the seller is very important. Determining the final design was very easy, as the seller responded to all e-mails quickly and had all the details I needed."

We are usually open to custom orders of all kinds, whether it be sewing up a purse in a certain fabric, designing a specific pattern to your specifications, stitching up one of our patterns or kits or designing one of our ever popular family coats of arms. Our order book only ever closes for holidays, so drop us a line with your idea and we'll be happy to make it a reality!
