Special Orders

I am always willing to special order anything that I do not normally carry in stock. Things such as charts, kits, fabrics, fibers, Sudberry House items, and more. These items will be handled on a case by case basis but usually charts, kits, fabric, and fiber do not require payment in advance although some exceptions apply. Sudberry House items do require payment in advance.

You may also special order any beaded scissor fobs, chatelaines, and other beaded items in special sizes or specific colors or stones. A price quote and time frame will be given upon request.

These items are custom and will not be made until payment has been received.

Items from The Bag Lady and Votre Grandmere can be special ordered for specific sizes and/or color family but exact fabrics cannot be promised. Payment of at least 1/2 is required for these special orders.

I will accept a payment plan for these items and any of the larger items on my site. Please email me privately for arrangements.
