Welcome!

Hi there! Thanks so much for taking the time to pop over to my website! I'm Jodi, and my husband Tim and I laser cut English Paper Pieces in the old hospital in Castlemaine Victoria, about an hour and a half north of Melbourne, Australia.

I write a monthly newsletter about what I'm stitching, special things in the shop, and stuff I love to listen to or watch in the background while I sew. And I love to find cool stories about historic quilts and sharing them with you. You should totally sign up!

ECO-FRIENDLY PAPERS AND PACKAGING.

From the moment we started thinking about creating a beautiful, yet disposable craft product, I knew I wanted to make a commitment to keep our business eco-friendly. I already felt uncomfortable about the amount of single use plastics in my house. I didn't want to start making them! And so, we became the first and only manufacturer of English Paper Pieces that uses 100% post-consumer recycled paper and packaging. We also use plant-based, biodegradable cellophane to keep your order protected from the weather as it makes its way to you! You can even add it to your compost! And we only cut to order, so that we create absolute minimum waste when we make your Paper Pieces and Acrylic Templates.

Instagram is my favourite place to be online! I love sharing daily EPP inspiration.

SHIPPING.

We ship internationally from our studio in Castlemaine, Victoria, using Australia Post. We ship Tuesday-Friday, and aim to have all orders cut and shipped within 2 business days of ordering.

All shipping charges are automatically calculated at checkout.

DOMESTIC ORDERS:

Australian order usually arrive within 7-10 days of shipping. Please let us know by email if your order still hasn't arrived after 3 weeks, and we will gladly resend your papers. 

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:

Most international orders take 10-14 days, whether they are shipped "Economy Air" (untracked letters and parcels) or "Standard Air" (tracked parcels). We offer Economy Air shipping which is the cheapest shipping option, and also offer tracked options for those wishing to track their parcel and have guaranteed shipping times. All prices are in AUD. 

International orders sometimes take up to 6 weeks to arrive. In the very rare event that they go missing, we will gladly recut your order. Simply email us to let us know once 6 weeks has passed since your order was shipped (you will receive an email when your order ships). 

RETURNS:

Generally, we do not accept returns, because we cut everything to order. If we've made a mistake in your order, let us know and we'll cut the correct shapes immediately. If you have any questions or concerns about your order, don't hesitate to email us!

Custom Orders:

Looking for a different size of a shape we already cut? Or after a large amount of shapes at a special price? Just ask! We would love to work with you. 

We accept a very limited amount of custom orders which require coding of new or irregular shapes. Feel free to contact us with your idea to see if it's a good fit!
