Visiting the Shop during the Covid-19 Pandemic
  • Q: Is the shop open?
A: The shop is open for in person shopping during our normal hours of 10-4 Monday through Friday (closed 1st Fridays).

Shipping Charges

  • Q: What do you charge for shipping?
A: We have always tried to charge you the actual charges from USPS or UPS that are based on your package size, weight and location, so this can be very different each time you order.
There is a flat rate charged during checkout. If your actual charges are less than the flat rate, you will be refunded the difference. If you are purchasing just a couple of paper patterns please choose the $2.35 option.
International orders are charged at actual rates and there is an International choice at $80 (which is an average base rate), you will be contacted with the actual rate. If the rate is less, the difference will be refunded, if it is higher an invoice will be sent for payment before your order is shipped. If you prefer to know the cost before placing an order please send us an email with your shipping address and the items you wish to order. We will let you know the cost and send an invoice through PayPal or Square (your choice) for secure payment.

If you need an order expedited, please tell us when you need it by in the Delivery Notes during checkout. We may not need to use air shipping (which can be VERY expensive). If the order will incur extra charges to arrive by your deadline, we will advise you of this and send a secure invoice for payment.

Customer Number

  • Q: What is my customer number and what does it mean?
A: Please look on the upper right hand corner of your invoice/receipt. Your customer number will be printed right below the invoice number.
The customer number is made from three things: the first 4 digits of your last name, the last 4 digits of your HOME telephone number.
If you move or change your name, please let us know so that we may change your customer number and remain current.
We use this customer number to find you quickly in our files. If there is ever a problem with an order, we need your customer number to find you and the order information.
