I will ship your order within 48 hours of confirmed payment.
I live in CANADA! I use Canada Post Lettermail - Air (10-21 Business Days to the US), and do my best to keep costs low, yet keep your purchase safe on it's way. Please do not order from my shop if you cannot wait for your pattern.
I will definitely combine your purchases and charge as close to the ACTUAL shipping cost as charged by the post office as I can.
I use the address provided by ETSY to ship your package. It is very important that you insure the address provided is correct! I cannot be held responsible for packages lost or shipped to incorrectly listed addresses.
More expedient shipping is available, but it is often VERY expensive. Check http://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/personal/productsservices/send/lettersdocuments.jsf#Rates for more details.
International buyers are responsible for any and all import duties or customs fees.
I WILL NOT SHIP TO AFRICA. I have had too many expensive packages go missing, so will no longer consider shipping to Africa.
My favorite payment method is Paypal!
I will also accept Direct Checkout through Etsy.
I can also accept well concealed cash in an envelope, or cash payments in person. Contact me to arrange payment.

I cannot be held responsible when buyers provide incorrect addresses to Etsy. I use the address provided by ETSY, not Paypal, so insure it is correctly listed, or include a note at time of purchase.
Note that items are vintage in nature, and so expect them to have seen their years. I always do my best to describe the items honestly and accurately, to avoid any confusion.
Because most of my sewing patterns are vintage and pre-owned, I check each vintage sewing pattern for completeness, for the pattern pieces and the instruction sheets. ALL PATTERNS have all pieces and instructions sheets UNLESS SPECIFICALLY NOTED.
I live in a smoke-free home, and if patterns have a smokey smell I will disclose it in the listing. Feel free to contact me with any concerns at all.
I am happy to create custom listings upon request.
I can also RESERVE a pattern for you, at your request, for up to 2 weeks. After this time it will go back into my normal listings if it is not purchased.
