How Does This Work?
Each of our items is hand-made, created using an old-fashioned treadle sewing machine, and totally one-of-a-kind. Finished sizes may vary a bit and each is unique and original. We are able to utilize pretty much any type of fabric, and please feel free to ask about a specific material. We do try to stay away from knit sweaters to use in bowls as they unravel when cut. Polyesters tend to fray. Cottons or cotton blends are ideal.
Included on each of our memory items is your choice of a small silver charm. Because love never changes. This makes each item more than just a regular pillow, or bowl. It is so much more. A little reminder of the joy that person brought to our lives.
If you have any questions about how much clothing is required for your project, please don't hesitate to contact us so we can give you a peace of mind knowing we will have enough to complete your order. To give you an idea, we can get about three (3) small or medium baskets out of one long sleeve. Yes, I said "sleeve" - the baskets do not require much fabric at all. One shirt = one pillow (we can combine two different shirts to do a two-color shirt). The options are endless!
Visit our "Order Custom Memory Items" page where you can select your items and quantities, as well as your choice of charm. They will be added to your cart, just as if you were purchasing a regular item. You will be notified via e-mail when we receive your order, and another once we are ready to begin.
Your freshly-laundered clothing should then be promptly shipped to:
The Green Snail, 173 Water Wheel Road, New Ringgold, PA 17960.
For my local clients, after placing your order please send me a message to schedule pickup. Be sure to use select "LOCAL" for shipping at checkout to choose local delivery. We'll communicate to set up a time and day to meet for pick up/drop off. I'd also be happy to meet with you to discuss a special project! Please send me a message to set up an appointment. All appointments will be held at the the following address:
106 Robin Hill Lane, New Ringgold, PA.
~ Sorry, I am not available to meet on Sundays. ~
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send us an email at Trina@thegreensnail.com. There are no stupid questions!
So go to your closet and take out that shirt you didn't have the heart to throw away. And let me create something beautiful out of it! Please feel free to ask any questions about how we can start preserving memories together.
