Some products say they are available for purchase in your etsy shop, but can I purchase them from you here?
Yes, you can get in touch with me and let me know what you'd like to order. I'll prepare a PayPal invoice for you and email it to you.
It's a challenge to split inventory between etsy and my website and means a lot of manual updates on my end. Then of course, I might miss updating the quantities and end up overselling something! So I'm experimenting with posting shipped goods in my etsy shop and then you can order them by request here.
The main difference between buying here or through etsy is that etsy is required to collect a sales taxes in many states, VAT, GST, etc.
I'm not required to collect any of these taxes, so what you'll pay here is the price you see x the quantity ordered + any applicable shipping fees ($5 flat rate and free for orders of $35+).
What forms of payment do you accept?
Electronic payments are securely processed through PayPal. I never see your cc card or other sensitive financial info. You do not need a PayPal account to pay and can use a debit or credit card. Just look for the button that says "pay with debit or credit card" (below the log in button).
How much is shipping?
PDF patterns always "ship" free since they are delivered digitally.
For physical products the shipping cost is a flat rate of $5. Orders of $35+ ship free.
When will my order ship?
Your order will ship in 1-3 business days. Most orders ship the next business day, but sometime I need more time. Just drop me a note if you'd like to know what day your package will ship.
What do I need to use the patterns?
First, you must have a PDF viewing program installed on your computer. Almost all computers come with one of these programs now, so you likely already have it installed. If not, you can download Acrobat Reader from Adobe for free here.
Then you'll also need the supplies listed in the pattern description.
What are "Basic Tools & Notions"?
Scissors, thread, sewing machine, hand sewing needle, ruler, fabric marking pen or chalk, and a seam ripper.
Where else can I find your patterns?
This site is my main shop and you can also find many of my patterns on etsy. The main difference is here you pay the amount shown, while on etsy you may need to pay additional taxes (VAT, GST, state sales taxes, etc.) based on your state and/or country.
If you see something in my etsy shop that's not listed here, or vice versa, and want to combine these orders into one to combine the shipping, please just get in touch by email, or using the contact page.
Do you ship outside the US?
Patterns are digitally delivered, so they can be sent anywhere in the world and there is no shipping fee.
For shipped goods, I currently ship to US mailing addresses only.
While I'd love to send packages all over the world, shipping internationally comes with its own set of unique issues, and as a one-person business, it's not something I have the resources to handle at this time. Please consider using one of the many package forwarding companies that would be happy to handle your business.
Do you offer discounts?
Yes, and current offers are listed on this page and also with a banner across the top of each page.
Where do you get your fabric?
I buy from a variety of fabric shops online and a few local shops. If you like my fabric choices, follow my Quilting Cotton Fabric pinterest board.
