Maria, the North Way Studio, will be going on maternity leave beginning November 20th until March 2022.
All orders placed in July and onwards will be subject to possibly longer timelines than the noted 14 weeks. Timelines cannot be guaranteed, nor rushes offered.
No orders, even ready to ship items, will be shipped, begun, or worked on, between the end of November and the end of March, 2022.
Clients are agreeing that they will not email requesting shorter timelines than the 14 weeks beginning in July, nor to inquire when a piece will ship or be begun from the end of November through the end of March, 2022.
Orders may still be placed during the maternity leave, but will not be worked on or begun until the end of March 2022.
By purchasing from The North Way Studio, you are agreeing to these maternity leave terms.
