Where will the pattern ship from and what method of shipping do you use?
I ship the patterns from Western North Carolina and use USPS first class shipping. During the winter months, I occasionally ship from Florida. Most single patterns are sent in a bubble mailer envelope, inside one of my Pattern Protectors; an acid & lignin free, archival quality, resealable plastic envelope. Patterns priced $6.99 and higher also include an acid free backer board. Multiple patterns may be sent via envelope or box, via parcel post or first class, depending on weight and thickness. I will endeavor to ship to you the most economical way possible.
PURCHASE 4 or MORE PATTERNS and US Domestic SHIPPING is FREE!
How long does shipping take, when will I receive my order?
I ship within 24-48 hours of payment, not including weekends and holidays. Most packages take between 2-10 days to reach you, depending on where you live.
International shipments can take 5-21 business days, depending on where you live. (This of course is in a perfect world, and does not take into account natural disasters, postal strikes, or any other thing that may further cause delay of the shipment. These things are out of my control!)
