Each item made by Michelle Corbin and is lovingly created by hand in the heart of North East England. The majority of items are made to order with a current turn around of approximately 2 - 4 weeks. Ready made items are shipped as soon as possible.
Memory Keepsake items do take longer to process and will receive updates during the course of time.
What are Michelle Corbin Design Keepsake Gifts & Accessories made from?
Most items at Michelle Corbin Design are created from textiles. Memory Keepsakes, are predominantly created from items of clothing that are cherished by you and therefore sent to me to transform. Other designs are created mainly from Linen, Cotton and Felt, however they may be embellished or accessorised with vintage or hand dyed materials. Michelles goal for 2021 is to ensure all, or the majority of fabrics purchased are sustainable and ethical. Some items may contain mixed media details or sequins.
What age do you recommend for items purchased at Michelle Corbin Design?
Every item at Michelle Corbin Design is carefully created to the highest of standards, however due to the nature of some items, they are not suitable for children under 14 years of age, and therefore should be used for decoration only.
Are all items made-to-order?
Most items are made-to-order, however some items are ready made and will be specified in the items description.
How do I care for my new items?
As all items at Michelle Corbin Design are of a hand made nature, spot cleaning is recommended for the most. Memory Keepsake Quilts should be shaken from time to time and spot cleaned if needed. Should quilts and cushion covers need to be washed, a gentle hand wash with cool water is recommended and line dry.
Other items should be shaken and dusted with a damp cloth
How do I pay?
Add your selected items to your shopping cart and when you are ready to pay, proceed to the checkout. I accept Paypal or Stripe Payments which gives you the option to pay via credit card also.
How will my order be delivered?
As my items are made to order the lead time can be 3 - 4 weeks. At busy periods, this may vary, but I will always inform you if your order will take longer to process.
For Memory Keepsake Items, I do have a waiting list. Upon your enquiry or purchase, I will instruct you of an approximate start date, and your Keepsake will be ready approximately 4-6 weeks from that start date.
I use the Royal Mail Delivery Service to dispatch goods. For items under £15 I use 1st Class Standard Delivery

All items will be beautifully wrapped and packaged in either environmentally friendly packaging or sometimes a clean reused box.
