Anne now weaves, lectures, demonstrates, and teaches, emphasizing the importance of a thorough understanding of weave structures. She is a Guild member of the Association of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers, and a founding member of the Braid Society. Anne lives in England.

Pennsylvania's new tax law: All items shipped from PA must charge PA tax (Point of Origin sales tax). At present, there is no tax on food, shelter or clothing. Yarn is considered a raw material for making clothing. Therefore no sales tax. Books and tools are taxable and have the tax included in the price.
Returns & exchanges
In order to keep costs low, most items are shipped first class international. Typically that means shipping takes a week or less to Canada, two weeks to Europe and three weeks to Australia. However, the US Postal service has no way to track it once it leaves US soil. Other airports are notoriously bad at logging the information into the database. If an item fails to reach you in 30 days, you have a choice of replacement or refund. And please don't be shy about letting me know if you are worried about a lost package.
If you need an item sooner, convo me to arrange Priority International, which does have tracking and will arrive much sooner for an additional price. Price is dependent on how heavy your order is. Convo me to get a quote and arrange it.
