Shipping & Handling

Shipping and handling for USPS First Class Mail to U.S. addresses:

$4 for 1-3 items
$5 for 4-5 items
$8 for 6-8 items
$14 for 9-15 items
$20 for 16 + items

Unfortunately, we must stop business with Great Brittain due to the BREXIT requirement for Value Added Tax reporting and collection. That just involves too much for our small Internet store to take on. Hopefully, those requirements will be lifted soon, and we can once again serve our British customers. In the mean time, orders placed from those affected countries will be canceled.

Foreign postage for shipping outside the U.S is determined by package weight. Our shopping cart will add estimated shipping. We will refund postage we don't need, rounded up to the nearest dollar. If we need to add additional postage, we'll contact you. We usually ship by USPS First Class International, which includes a tracking number. If you prefer expedited shipping, ask us to calculate a shipping price. 

We're sorry we've had to raise our postage costs to keep up with the US Post Office. Our US Postal system is slower than usual lately, and we don't know how long that will last. I will do my best to get a tracking number on your package. After I've checked it in at the post office, it will be up to you to check the tracking number at, as once I've given it to the Post office, it is considered to be yours. We cannot be held accountable for excessive delivery times.

We ship most items by USPS First Class. Books may be sent by Media Mail. If you prefer expedited shipping or a tracking number, you’ll need to pay the adjusted rate.

Orders for free patterns only, with no purchase, are fraudulent. The order will be canceled, and the shipping amount will be retained as a restocking fee, as the online inventory must be corrected to return items to stock.
