Frequently Asked Questions
1. If your name is Lindsey, why is the company named Erin.Lane?
My name is Lindsey, but no I don't live on Erin.Lane, nor have I ever. When my mother and I first started the company, (which was kind of an accident) we needed a name quickly. We wanted it to combine our names, but Lindsey Lisa sounded lame, so we played with combining Martin and Galasso. No dice. Then we thought, middle names. Mine is Erin, and my mothers was Lane. We put it together and loved it. I ever remember my dad saying, Erin.Lane, that sounds fancy, like Vera Bradley.
2 . Who is Hank?
Hank is my pet yarn. My hubby and I travel so much we can't have a dog, so he bought me pet yarn. Hank I is just that a hank of yarn, though his brand and blend have been discontinued. He is a skein of Pagewood Farms yarn, and I love him. You can generally find him in my booth at knitting events, and yes, he LOVES pictures!
3. Can I really wash my bag?
You absolutely can wash your bag! I was a middle school teacher for a decade. If it couldn't be washed, it couldn't survive my life. It's pretty simple. Just pop your bag/needle case/tote in the washer in a cold wash gentle cycle. Then block it like you would any handknit. Just lay flat to dry.
PLEASE NOTE: You can wash sheeple printed items; however, you might notice a bit more shrinkage on the lining fabric than the exterior fabric. That has to do with the dye setting process of print on demand fabrics. If your item has sheeple inside and out, wash away without worries.
4. Can I return my organizer or bag?
We want you to love your purchase. If you don't we will gladly swap it out for you. We accept exchanges/returns on new condition items. We only ask that you pay the shipping to get it back to us. We will ship you what you want in exchange as soon as we receive your item back.
5. Who does all the sewing?
Mostly, the sewing is done by me. I am almost completely a one-woman show. I have some help on the project bags from a dear friend who comes over twice a week and from my college roommate who sews while my nephew naps.
6. Where are these manufactured?
Every single item is manufactured in the United States. We believe that American Made Matters! I have a sewing studio in the bonus room of my house in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I sew over my garage most days while listening to audiobooks.
