|Shipping Rates and Methods|
|How are shipping rates calculated and what carriers do you use?|
|Shipping is automatically calculated prior to submitting your payment information. Simply add items to your cart and proceed to the Checkout page where you will be offered Shipping Method choices and their prices. Costs are calculated based on averages for order amount and weight.
International customers: In almost all cases the shipping shown in the cart is what will be charged, however some international rates are estimated and may be more or less than what is shown when you order, particularly on heavier or bulkier packages. If the actual cost is lower we will adjust your payment accordingly; if it is significantly higher we will contact you. If you wish to get a shipping quote ahead of time just contact us.
Please note that there are discounted shipping levels which may apply on your order. The rate discounts increase when orders exceed $25, $50, and $100. Free shipping applies to all orders over $100 in the United States (unless otherwise noted on specific products).
The majority of our shipping is done through the United States Postal Service with some larger packages shipping via UPS. Shipments for larger items such as floor looms ship via an appropriate LTL freight service.
Priority shipping is available on many orders in the United States for a few more dollars. This is typically USPS Priority Mail and does not carry a guaranteed delivery time frame. Orders with priority shipping will be processed before orders without priority shipping and generally arrive within two days after leaving our shop. Please keep in mind that we are a two-person operation, nothing ships on Sundays or holidays, items that need to be dyed still take a few days to dye and dry, and we do actually take a day off here and there...so if you absolutely need something by a specific date please contact us and we will do our best to make it happen. :)
