Order Processing, Turnaround time and Updates:

First, thank you for shopping handmade at Graceful Threads!  I thoroughly enjoy providing you and your family with garments that are not easily found in brick and mortar stores. The store is presently closed to new orders as we are busy relocating. Preorders placed in July can be seen below. My Etsy store remains open for nightgowns and slips/essentials. Please visit there if you need something quickly this fall. Orders placed will have their turnaround times as usual below. Aside from that, please disregard the usual 6 week information as found in the paragraphs below. If you have questions please email [email protected] I'll be taking phone calls again when the new studio is set up and ready to roll. See you all again soon! 

Turnaround time for made to order items is 6 weeks. I ship sooner whenever possible but request that you plan on 6 weeks so that there are no misunderstandings. If you are a regular customer, you can help me by planning ahead and ordering as early as possible. Our busiest times of the year happen when seasons are in transition. You can expect wait times during seasonal transitions (especially fall) and during our own family breaks to take the full 6 weeks. In order to make ordering as easy as possible even in a rush, I have added a RUSH ORDER section for those who need something done quickly. Simply add all the items to your cart and then go over to the rush order section, add the appropriate rush order charge based on the total amount of your order and you are all set. If I am too busy to accept rush orders, when you go to that section, you'll find it empty. I apologize for that first sense of disappointment, but keep careful track of how many garments are in production so that I don't promise what I cannot fulfill.

Many of you like to know where you are in line and my best guess as to when your order will ship. Your customer code is the initials of your first and last name. Beside that you will see a date based on the six week turnaround time. It is extremely rare that I do not make our six week window and will contact you if an emergency has slowed me down. More often than not, most orders ship in about one month. If a customer below you has an earlier ship date, it is not because I am neglecting your order but simply that they have placed a rush order. Only custom orders appear here as fabric orders ship weekly. I hope this continues to be a helpful tool for you in planning.   

ETSY orders have their own unique ship dates and will ship by the date promised when you purchased your garment.  Check your ETSY receipt for more information. Those dates can also be found below.
