We ship via USPS Priority Mail to all 50 states (travel time is approximately 2-3 business days) and via UPS Ground to the 48 contiguous states (generally 3-7 business days). If you live in Alaska or Hawaii and prefer to ship via UPS, please select either UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Next Day Air. We will usually ship your order within one business day from the time we receive it. Shipping charges are determined at the time of the sale, using UPS or United States Postal Service online rate calculators.


The most economical way to ship larger international orders is via Priority Mail International. This is a good option if you're ordering 8 or more yards of fabric, but it's somewhat expensive for smaller orders. Delivery time for Priority Mail International is usually 6-10 business days. For orders of 1-2 yards, we suggest First Class International. Shipping time is slower than Priority Mail (actual delivery time depends upon the destination), but the price is very reasonable. Due to size restrictions, the maximum amount of fabric allowed for First Class International is 2 yards. Unfortunately, due to a large price increase by the US Postal Service, we no longer offer Priority Mail flat rate envelopes as a shipping option. (Sorry for the disappointing news.)

International credit card orders over $50.00 must be shipped to the cardholder's billing address. If you need to have your order shipped to a different address, please contact us for other payment options.


We do not charge tax on orders shipped outside of the United States, but your local Customs authorities may add additional duties, taxes and/or tariffs to the cost of your order (some countries tax the cost of shipping as well as the cost of the merchandise). In many cases, these fees can be quite high. Please be aware that you are responsible for the payment of any additional fees. If you're unsure about the laws in your country, please contact your local Customs office for details. We receive occasional requests to mark packages as "Gifts" or to undervalue the merchandise on the Customs forms. The penalty for knowingly falsifying information on a Customs form is $10,000 and/or 5 years in jail. So sorry, but no, we can't. *:o)


If your merchandise total is $50.00 or more, the shipping is on us! To qualify for free shipping, your merchandise subtotal (before shipping) must be equal to or greater than $50.00 and the order must be shipped to a single address within the Continental United States. In order to receive free shipping, please leave the shipping option set to Priority Mail at checkout. We'll determine the best shipping method at the time of shipment--either UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. If you choose a shipping method other than Priority Mail, the standard shipping rates will apply. This offer may not be applied retroactively to orders which have already been shipped. We reserve the right to modify or withdraw this offer at any time.

If you prefer to order by phone, you can reach us at (612) 823-5558 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Central Standard Time.
