Our shipping is based on dollar amount, but if you only order a book or pattern and we are able to ship it in an envelope for less, we will try to do so and refund you some of the shipping cost. If you are wanting us to ship an International order, please call or email and we will work with you. We cannot accept returns on cut fabric. We are happy to accept returns for any items that are defective or any non-fabric items that are in their original condition and packaging. We will offer store credit for returns.
