Do you accept special orders?
I LOVE special orders. If you see an item you would like in a different color or even a different size please ask.
If you are looking for something specific that is not listed, I have accumlated thousands of patterns and I would be happy to make a doily especially for you.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I care for my doily?
I provide care instructions with each purchase. My products are generally made from 100% cotton thread and are hand washable or dry cleanable. Any exceptions are noted in each item (such as the inclusion of acrylic threads or beads).
If you have any questions regarding the care of your doily, motif, or booties please just drop me an email and I will be glad to help you.
How do you package your doilies?
My doilies are washed and blocked prior to shipping. I do not use starch out of personal perference but you may certainly add starch if you desire. Depending on the size of the doily, they are folded in tissue paper, placed inside a plastic bag to protect them during shipping and shipped in an envelope.
When you receive the doily you may need to give it a light press from the back of the item to remove any creasing during shipping. You may spray it with spray starch if you desire.
Highly starched ruffles will generally be shipped flat to preserve the ruffle and will be noted with additional shipping on the item.
How should I stored my doilies?
Though I ship them in plastic they should not be stored in plastic long term. I have read some documentation that says this will discolor the threads - though I can not personally attest to this.
The best way to store doilies is in a clean, dry area covered or wrapped in tissue paper.
