You are all probably pretty aware that I am a one woman operation. How do I keep this machine rolling? With terms and conditions, of course!

Health Disclaimer: All of my items are made in a dog-friendly home; however, she never enters my workspace nor does she have access to my work room. For those of you who are dog fanatics and just need to know the breed, she’s a Greyhound – a rescued and retired racer and living out her glory days on my couch. 😉

Can I place a custom order?

Custom orders are available; however, they are at my discretion, with schedule permitting. You may email me at Lmsewingmachine@gmail.com to inquire of an order. I do not respond to Facebook messages regarding business matters. If my schedule coincides with your timeline, chances are I might be able to accept your request for a custom order.

How long do custom orders take?

Please understand that NO WORK WILL BE DONE until payment is made in full.
Generally, custom orders take 6-8 weeks to complete and send off. I always aim to try and finish the order before then; however, sometimes I may exceed past 8 weeks depending on size and quantity of your order. Even then, I will keep an open line of communication to let you know if that occurs.

I do offer payments on larger orders if you are not able to pay one lump sum. Payments may be separated into increments of five or less. Your order will be completed and shipped once the last payment has been submitted.

I accept cash, credit card, PayPal, and money orders.
I do not accept checks.

Do you do wholesale?

Yes! I offer discount prices for wholesale orders. In order to qualify for wholesale discount, you must order a minimum of 20 (TWENTY) of the same item and of the same size. In addition to the discount, you will also receive free shipping.
For wholesale orders, I require a non-refundable half payment as a deposit. Prior to the shipping of your order, the other half of the order is to be paid. Additional insurance on shipping is your responsibility. I do not accept returns or refunds on wholesale orders.

I own a brick and mortar shop. Can I sell your stuff?

If you are a store owner, I would love to discuss a consignment contract with you. Feel free to email me at Lmsewingmachine@gmail.com about your opportunities. I require a written, signed contract prior to agreeing to any business decisions.


Stock items
You have 7 days upon receiving your order to email me to express your dissatisfaction of a received product. You may either request a fix or a partial refund. No fix or partial refund will be honored until you send your order back to me at your expense of postage. A fix is only honored for defective work. This does not honor additional changes desired for the item. All stock items are sold as is.

Custom Orders
I do not accept returns on custom orders. There is only one exception to this rule and that is, I will mend anything that is craftsmanship error (e.g. seam came undone, rivet has popped off, etc.). Any postage expenses is buyer’s responsibility, this includes shipping to and from my studio. Up to half of total sum of all custom orders are non-refundable.

Additionally, I cannot be held responsible for theft or damage of your parcel.

For international orders, you may be expected to pay additional duties upon purchasing or receiving your items. These duties are your responsibility.

I ship orders every Tuesday and Friday unless we have otherwise agreed on a shipment date.

Can I send you fabric to make an item for me?

Unfortunately, no. This is a health and safety issue. I need to be able to account for the quality and condition of materials that enter into my sewing studio.

Do you sew and/or fix clothing?

I do not accept custom orders for clothing. This includes alterations.
