Shipping Information

Domestic International

We ship most orders via USPS Priority Mail (delivery time 2-3 days.) Large orders (multiple batts, etc) may be shipped via Parcel Post.
Item Subtotal*Shipping & Handling
$0.00 to $9.99$2.99**
$10.00 to $49.99$5.99
US orders of $50.00 or more Shipped Free!
This includes Alaska, Hawaii, APO/FPO.
* Excluding tax & shipping charges

Pattern Shipping: We can fit about eight regular-size patterns in a First Class mailer for the $2.99 rate, and any number of patterns not qualifying for free US shipping will fit in a Priority Mail envelope at the $5.99 rate. Orders of $50 or more will, of course, be shipped free in the US.
These reduced rates for pattern-only orders will not be shown in your cart or when you check out, but totals will be adjusted before we charge your card. (The web site's dumb, but we're smart.)

(Domestic shipping rates, including all free shipping offers, are for USPS 1st Class and Priority Mail ONLY. If you desire another carrier or service level, you will need to pay the full shipping cost regardless of subtotal.)

** Orders in this price range will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail. If you prefer Priority Mail even for a small order, please indicate that in a note when submitting your order. Note that you will be charged $5.99 shipping if you choose that option.

International shipping costs are variable and will not be quoted when ordering, but will be charged. We use Priority Mail International (PMI) whenever possible (or First-Class Mail International if it's cheaper.)
We can ship to these countries...

If you have a preference for Priority Mail International or First-Class Mail International, or if you wish to be contacted about the shipping charges before your order is shipped, please let us know when you place your order.

Important: We will not falsify official customs documents to avoid required duties & taxes. Any requests for this will be ignored and the order will be sent with correct information on all forms.
