How often are hand-sewing kits restocked?
Kit restocks vary as there are many parts of Fibr & Cloth Studio to run! Usually I try to restock once a month on a small bath basis. To find out about restocks first, sign up for my newsletter HERE!
How do you choose patterns for the hand-sewing kits?
I begin with identifying designers that are committed to a sustainable aesthetic and are committed to creating a simple sewing experience. Usually patterns from these designers are easy to hand-sew and I choose patterns that have simple silhouettes with potential long lines of easy stitching.
I wasn't fast enough for a kit! Why are they in such small batches??
Though I sometimes use the word "we" to describe the "people" in this business (which may or may not include my husband depending on his own job), it is just me running this business. I am one person and am not able to cut large quantities of kits. Hopefully one day I will be able to expand to having an employee cutting some things for me, but until that time comes, small batch is where we are. Keep trying!
Why is shipping so expensive for kits?
Each kit hold about 1-2lbs of fabric depending on the size you requested. That's a heavy box! You can view our shipping page at the bottom of the website to understand our flat rate shipping charges.
