Seller information

Items are all individually handmade by me. Custom orders can be taken with a change of fabrics, linings, zippers etc. Contact me for all custom requests. Custom orders will not commence until payment is received

Processing time

The time I need to prepare an order for shipping varies. All of my products are individually handmade. I currently have a high number of orders to work through so aim to post an item within 1-3 business days if ready to post or 3-4 weeks if it needs to be made. I aim to make and post earlier but require this timeframe to pace myself and ensure my high standards of workmanship are met

Customs and import taxes

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. Chain Bay Sewcraft is not responsible for delays due to customs or shipping

Refunds and Exchanges

These are unique one-off handcrafted items and as such all sales are final. Returns are only accepted if the item was damaged in shipping and the buyer has requested to add Australia Post insurance to their purchase
