Dispatch times - we aim for same day or next working day dispatch every time
We aim for same day or next working day dispatch every time you order from us. We do not make you wait. Dispatch times are very important to us and we treat your order as a priority.
It is very, very rare that we do not dispatch an order within 48 hours during the week, Monday-Friday.
We dispatch using Royal Mail business post services - Royal Mail Tracked 24 and Royal Mail Tracked 48.
Royal Mail collect from us in the mornings, Monday to Friday, (we do not dispatch on Saturdays), but we also cut fabric and process at the weekend - so if you make an order any time on Saturday, or before 6 p.m. on Sunday, it will go out on Monday morning.
If you make an order after 6 p.m. we will try hard to dispatch it the next day but this may not always be possible.
We will always let you know promptly if we anticipate a delay in dispatch longer than 48 hours.
Delivery prices for address in the UK
We have FREE UK DELIVERY as standard for addresses in the locations below by Royal Mail Tracked 24/48 and very occasionally, for orders weighing more than 2kg, DPD Next Day service:

Delivery prices for countries outside the UK
We also deliver to addresses in the following EU countries:
Royal Mail International Standard, Tracked if the order is over £20.00, or for larger parcels DPD courier: £10.00 - (Ireland £8.00)
Free Royal Mail International Tracked or DPD courier for orders over £70.00
PLEASE NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL DELIVERIES: Royal Mail cannot deliver international parcels weighing more than 2kg, so I will contact you if your order weighs over this maximum and let you know that I am sending it via DPD courier.
Over the coming months we will expand the number of countries to which we can send orders.
UK delivery of heavy, bulky parcels over 2 kg in weight and high-value orders
Royal Mail collect from us and we use Royal Mail Tracked 24 and Royal Mail Tracked 48 for all deliveries, depending on the type of fabric and the value of your order.
However, where a parcel is over 2 kg in weight and/or bulky we may, occasionally, decide to use DPD to deliver your item - this service will also be FREE to you.
Normally we only consider using DPD if, for example, you've ordered more than four metres of a heavier-weight fabric or you have spent more than £100.00 in total.
Our first choice, and preferred option, will always be Royal Mail. They are the best at what they do.
How can you offer free UK delivery? No one else does this as standard
We are ambitious and want to grow rapidly so we sell on Ebay and Etsy alongside this website. But we have to pay big fees on there so it means we must keep our prices higher on those platforms - which is very annoying.
After we'd been up and running for a few months, and had enough data, we could crunch the numbers and it became apparent that it would make sense to mirror these outlets and offer free delivery on our own website. Plus it gives us the opportunity to offer lower prices than we can on these other sites.
But it's driven by something bigger.
I'm particular passionate about making lovely, high-quality fabric accessible to all. I've always believed that fabric plays a big role in how we feel about ourselves, our lives and our environment.
A single half metre of gorgeous fabric can lift us up and make us feel more positive about our lives and the future, especially when our lives can sometimes be complex and difficult.
Therefore I want to ensure that no matter how small your budget you can afford to buy something beautiful, unusual and useful - and be proud to live a simpler life!
While we want you to receive your products within a very maximum of 5 working days of you placing your order we cannot guarantee that this will happen under every circumstance.
For example, we cannot control, or take any responsibility for, Royal Mail, any courier or the weather. However, in all circumstances we will try as hard as possible to stick to these delivery times.
Please be aware that we are not liable for items that go missing in the post and we do keep proof of postage for all deliveries. If you have concerns about your parcel please contact us.
As a small business, it’s inevitable that occasionally we will take a break. When we are on a break, we will ensure that we make this clear on the website so that you know before you place an order that it may not be delivered within the maximum of 5 working days.
Packaging materials we use
The plastic bags we use to send out orders are 100% recyclable either via curbside collection or by taking to recycling points. The note cards and all other stationery including packaging tape we use is made in the UK or EU from 100% recycled paper from post-consumer waste.
