No, I am always on the hunt for vintage needlepoints when I shop antique stores, flea markets, thrift stores.
The needlepoints are in the same condition as they are found (as-is.) All I do is launder and block the needlepoint before I create the pillows. Each may show wear and tear but that is the beauty of a well loved vintage peice.
Yes, they are as clean as I possibly can get them through hand washing with LA’s Totally Awesome All Purpose Cleaner ® , a safe, naturally gentle, biodegradable soap. LA’s Totally Awesome All Purpose Cleaner® contains no harsh detergents, ammonia, or bleach. I also disinfect the needlepoints with an alcohol based disinfectant.I cannot, however, guarantee they are allergy free.
No, I do not wholesale. Thank you for asking, though.
No. The hunt & gather is part of the fun; the part I enjoy immensely. Because I enjoy it so much, I have ample stock, so I really don't need more.
Because of the nature of vintage needlepoint, we recommend you use great care to keep them clean. You may spot clean them by using a spot-free cleaning solution on the fabric sections and a wool spot cleaner on the needlepoint. Be warned, though, that vintage colored wool used in the needlepoint are not stable and may bleed. Some of the fabrics may not be color fast. The pillows are NOT washable by hand or by machine. A reputable dry cleaners may be used.
Pillows purchased throughout the week are shipped the following Monday morning. I ship USPS Parcel Post so you should receive your pillows on Friday. If you are needing a pillow sooner, please email Wollworks at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will arrange for USPS Priority. Of course, USPS International will take a bit longer.
WollWorks is not a bespoke pillow slip business. I do not do custom orders, custom requests, or create pillow slips using your supplies. I offer my own inventory only. Each pillow slip is one-of-a-kind and will not be reproduced. Thank you for your understanding.
No. That is not my business model.
Yes, that I will do. But I would prefer to do that during the off season (Jan 1 - August 15.)Please use the contact link to get in touch with me about pricing.
No. The needlepoints are all vintage, purchased on the secondary market, making them one-of-a-kind. The pillow slips sell rather quickly and cannot be easily reproduced. Thus, making a catalog out-of-date almost immediately.
