The Joyful Cottage offers many services.  Below is a basic outline of the services offered.  Please feel free to contact us if you have an idea or questions regarding a sewing project not mentioned.



  • Custom-sewing (using your patterns and/or fabric)
  • Ready-made clothing
  • Modest swimwear 
  • Baby Items (receiving blankets, diaper stackers, sheets etc.)



A note regarding fabric that is sent to me for custom work:


You are responsible to pre-wash/pre-shrink and care for the fabric you send to me. I cannot assume liability for any shrinkage that occurs with fabric not properly prepared.  Please, if you have questions regarding the proper preparation of your fabric, email us and we will be more than happy to consult you on this matter.


For your convenience, I will pre-wash and dry the fabric if requested for only

$3.00 additional, added to your order.



Return Policy:


No refunds will be issued.  All sales are final.  Any defects in workmanship or orders, will be corrected at no cost to you within 30 days from the time that you receive your items.  All corrections or alternations are subject to the discretion of The Joyful Cottage.



A Word about the Quality of our Items:


We take great care in the creation of our items.  All seams are finished with an overlock serger and are carefully inspected before shipping to our customers.  The fabric that we use has been carefully selected based on its durability and quality.

When can I expect my items to arrive?


Please allow a minimum of 4-6 weeks from the date that the order is received.  (If you are sending your own

patterns, fabric or notions, please allow minimum of 4-6 weeks from the time that The Joyful Cottage

receives your order.)  **** From Sept - Dec we will need extra time as we're usually very busy.****


Do you offer “Rushed” or “Expedited” services?


Yes.  We understand that sometimes you may need your item more quickly than our standard services allow for.  For this service, please add $9.00 per adult item, $7.00 per child item and $5.00 for any baby item.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for “rushed” orders to arrive to you.
