PaymentAll prices for products and shipping are in US dollars. We accept Visa, Mastercard,and Discover. Your credit card will be billed for the amount of your purchase, current tax rate, plus exact shipping charges with insurance. Personal checks from US banks are accepted, but will be held for clearance prior to your order being shipped.
Shipping to US States, Virgin Islands, and US TerritoriesMost orders will be packaged and shipped within 2 business days. Occasionally, we are so busy that we have a longer turn around time, and we will try to notify you if there is a delay. Fabric will be wrapped securely in plastic bags or tissue paper to keep it protected during shipping. Unless otherwise requested, we ship your order as economical as possible while still having it arrive within a reasonable time. We only use USPS priority mail or UPS ground when it is more feasible to you. Smaller orders that fit into the "flat rate envelopes and boxes" are shipped by USPS. Larger orders will be shipped by UPS, as it is more economical. If you have a shipping preferance please mention this in the comments field when checking out. The table below estimates shipping charges, however due to variances in the weight and price of fabric and other supplies, the actual cost may be higher or lower. If it is significantly higher than the estimate, we will email you prior to billing your credit card. Usually, the actual shipping is lower than the estimate. Due to lessons learned the hard way we now must add insurance to all Packages. This is a nominal fee but has proven to be invaluable in gauranteeing your package doesn't get lost.
Shipping to Canada and MexicoWhen you place your order, you will see a "Shipping Preference" button. You must click on "USPS Global Priority Mail (International)". If you click on the "USA orders" option, your shipping estimate will be incorrect.
We have found that the Global Priority Mail flat rate envelopes work best. We can always fit 5-6 yards of cotton or flannel into the large envelope (we can often fit a lot more, depending on type of fabric, if you ordered a book, pattern, or notion, etc.) We sometimes split larger orders into 2 or 3 large global priority flat rate envelopes, if this turns out to be cheaper than packing them all together. Basically, we will do our best to ship your order as inexpensively as possible. You are only charged the exact shipping. When you "check out" after shopping, the website will give you an "estimate" of shipping. This is subject to change, depending on what you ordered. We will contact you if the actual shipping charges are significantly higher than the estimate. Usually, it is lower than estimated.
