FAQ

Why don't you have any new products listed in your shop recently?
Being a one-woman business has its limitations. I'm currently expecting my first child in mid-January 2014 and the shop is now set up to reflect the challenges that are headed my way with becoming a work-at-home mom! I do still want to make the ready to ship items available to those who would like to purchase them, so everything you see in the shop is from my current 2013 line and will ship within 48 hours of purchase. But as many of you know, life with a newborn is a bit unpredictable, and I do plan to take a maternity leave of sorts to figure it all out. Later in 2014 I do plan to have a whole new line of products... many of them home-decor and family related... so stay tuned for more information once my family gets settled into a good routine. I appreciate your understanding as our lives change for the better!

Who designs the fabric?
I do! All of the prints you see on fabric designs in the Clever Betty™ shop are designed in-house by Lauren and are exclusive to this website: you won't find them anywhere else! Sewing patterns are also designed in-house and are exclusive to this shop. I create all of the handmade goods in my studio with my own two hands.

How do I care for my fabric?

See the fabric care page for detailed information.

What is the quality of your fabric like?
I'm very interested in only purchasing "green" products. Can I buy your fabrics?

Clever Betty™ fabric is printed on 100% Kona® Cotton unless otherwise noted, and is always printed with eco-friendly, water based pigments in the United States.  

How will I receive my order and when?
See the shipping page for detailed information.

I like the print, but what I want to make won't work with cotton. Can I get your fabric designs printed on something else?
At this time, Clever Betty only sells our fabric patterns on Kona® Cotton. 

Are you on social media?
Of course! You can find Lauren snapping photos on Instagram and pinning away on Pinterest.

I want to show you what I made from your fabric! Where should I do so?
I would love to see what you made! You can email your photos to cleverbettycraft (at) gmail (dot) com or tag me (@cleverbetty) on Instagram. Thanks for sharing!

Can I sell what I make from your fabric, kits, and/or patterns?

What if I like a print I see on your fabric, and I want to use it on a type of product you don't sell... like stationery?
If you are a business owner that sells a product, for instance, stationery, and you like a Clever Betty™ design, please contact me to discuss a collaborative project! You may not use any images from this site or designs you find on my products without my consent.

I live in Missouri. Does that mean I have to pay sales tax?
Yes. Clever Betty is located in St. Louis, Missouri, and thus, I must charge sales tax for items being shipped to addresses within the state of Missouri. This will all be taken care of automatically when you check out!
