Care instructions


Our embroidery hoops are made from cotton fabric and embroidery floss. They will be damaged if any liquid is poured on them, so leaving them outdoors is not the best location. It is not easy to remove any stain that might get on the embroidery hoop, but the best way to try is by using a stain remover with a cotton swab and dabbing the area.


Gift wrapping and packaging


Each order is wrapped in a simple, but special package. If you would like a special message to the recipient please don't hesitate to ask!


Wholesale availability


Some of our products are available for wholesale purchase. If you are interested, please send fill out our Wholesale Inquiry Form and we will get back to you with our current wholesale offerings as well as our Terms and Conditions.
