We do our best to ensure that the website is up to date. If there is an item you want that is out of stock, please feel free to call or email the shop to see when we expect to have it back in stock. A note of caution…although we strive to make sure our inventory numbers are accurate, due to theft and an occasional computer burp, inventory numbers are sometimes off. Should you place an order and it turns out that the item is not in stock, we will contact you to let you know and to see what your wishes are in regards to the out of stock item.
Please make your selections carefully, as we do not accept the return of any patterns, books, kits, fibers or fabric. As you know, online pictures do not depict the true color of fabric or floss. If in doubt, please call me at the shop before placing your order and I will be happy to assist you in choosing a fabric or floss color.
Similarly, all overstock, sale and special-order items cannot be returned.
You must contact us for advance authorization to return any other items. ALL returns must be authorized.
