Thank you for visiting Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts. We love crafting and handmade items, from knitting and quilting to our hubby-built house that we live in. Over the years, between the two of us, we have knitted, crocheted, quilted, sewn, embroidered, etc. We are always finding neat crafting items and patterns that we want to pass on to good homes--let's hope it is yours.
Our pattern store started after I kept seeing frustrated sewers writing to magazine companies complaining that they could not find a featured pattern as the pattern had already gone out of stock. Combined with poor health that prevents me from holding down a regular job and with the help of my husband and sons, we set our radars to work finding as many of those patterns as possible. One thing lead to another and soon our home was bursting to the seams with sewing patterns. With very rare exceptions, ALL our sewing patterns are UNCUT, UNUSED patterns. As we procure our patterns from many sources, they may have some envelope wear, but will be intact with all pattern tissues and instructions. If a pattern HAS been cut it will be noted as such including what garment pieces are cut and will usually be a very special pattern.
To save listing time, we only scan one envelope for each pattern number to show the pattern styles. Please ignore the pattern sizing on the pictured envelope. The size being sold will be the size listed in the title and description. If the pattern listing only has one photo and you would like to see the back of the envelope and the inside technical drawings, please ask! We are very happy to scan them for you and add them to the pattern listing. We are currently listing all patterns with the necessary pictures, but some of our earlier listings they were missed and we are very happy to include them now in our listings.
We sell sewing patterns not completed garments. I am a sewer myself and can knowledgably answer questions concerning the patterns, measurements and fabric needs. However I am not able to answer questions on how to construct the garments. If a pattern is classified as easy, average, advanced, that is the pattern company's classification of how difficult it will be to sew the pattern not something we pulled out of our heads. If I have made a particular pattern myself, I may add additional notes about any problems or difficulties I encountered.
I love to sew and wish I could do more. Selling patterns helps me get pleasure wondering how these patterns will be used. I would be happy to see photos of completed garments and projects that can be posted on our Face book page: http://www.facebook.com/MoonwishesSewing
All sales are final unless we have made a mistake. Please be sure to ask any question you may have prior to purchase. Items returned to us without contacting us first will not be acknowledged or refunded. Traditionally patterns have never been returnable, even at stores where a pattern can be checked in person.
We believe in excellent customer service with prompt shipping upon receiving payment and sending items as described. All items are shipped in 24 hours or less except on weekends or National Holidays. We answer questions as quickly as possible, but please note that we are in the Eastern Time Zone so please factor that in when asking questions and expecting answers--we need to sleep sometime! Please also be sure that you are using your correct email address. It is frustrating to spend the time looking up information and answering emails only to have them bounce back as undeliverable and then we have also have a customer that thinks we are ignoring them. We take Sunday as a day of rest so you will generally not have questions answered or get shipping notifications on Sundays.
