Shipping and Handling Costs

Once we receive your order, it will be processed within 48 hours. If your entire order can be filled, it will be shipped immediately. If any items ordered are not in stock, your order will be held until it can be filled in its entirety. No order will be held for more than two weeks. Items that are back-ordered (i.e. out of stock) or special orders will be shipped as soon as those products arrive. We have implemented this policy in order to keep our shipping rates as low as possible. Please be advised that we order from many different distributors and designers and in some cases a special order may take up to a couple of months to arrive in our store depending on what the product is and how often we order from that distributor. We do our very best to get your order in as soon as we can and will keep you updated on the status of your order. Our present ordering cycle is every 5-6 weeks.
Shipping costs are continually on the rise. It is definitely not a money making proposition for us but we need to cover our costs. Your shipping and handling costs are based on your pre-tax total as follows:

Estimates Only
Canadian Shipping & Handling – Minimum Charge $5.00 (Oversized items that need to be sent via Expedited Parcel through Canada Post are going for between $10-12)
US Shipping & Handling  – Minimum charge $9.00 (Please see note below for Oversized Packages)
International Shipping& Handling – Minimum charge $11.00

*Oversized * Overweight Packages will be charged actual shipping plus a $2.00 handling fee.

*The oversize package charge will not appear on your online bill – we will inform you by email when required. Oversized packages include bulky items like pearl cotton balls, multiple packages of beads, multiple skeins of floss, spools of thread, accessories and hardware. Unless your order can be sent in a flat envelope first class please be prepared to incur the oversize package charge. Please also note that large, heavy items like lights or stitching stands, scroll rods and side bars will be charged according to actual shipping costs plus a handling fee and we will contact you prior to shipping to confirm that cost.
We also reserve the right to reduce the initial first class fee if the package is small enough to ship at a cheaper rate.
We do not ship back orders separately to the United States or overseas.

Payment Method Policy

We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard and Visa Debit since Visa Debit is treated like a credit card when not present. Just input all your information as you would a Credit Card. We also will accept a money order in Canada only (in the case of a money order your order will not be shipped until we receive payment). Please note that we only accept online orders from Canada, US, Australia and the UK.

Return Policy

We give no cash refunds, only store credit. There are no returns or exchanges on any thread, printed (copyrighted) material (that means all patterns), canvas, cut to size fabric, opened/used items, special orders, lamps, stands and sale items.  Items like Qsnaps, stretcher bars that are pre-packaged must be unopened and in original packaging. Some items may be subject to a 15% restocking fee. Please check with us before placing an order to confirm how the policy relates to your specific request. And all approved returns must be made within 14 days of purchase and are at customers expense if to be mailed back to us. We are not Wayfair, just a small mom and pop shop without the buying power of giant online corporations!

All items must be in sale-able condition, original packaging, undamaged and things we currently sell.  We are unable to accept returns on lamps and stands unless there is a manufacturing defect, so choose wisely. We do not guarantee lamp bulb or LED length of life.

We’re always happy to answer questions on any item before you make a purchase to ensure you order the correct item.
