PLEASE NOTE : THERE ARE NUMEROUS LOCAL DELAYS WITH DELIVERIES. PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST AN EXTRA WEEK FOR YOUR ITEMS TO ARRIVE.
The vast majority of our deliveries are by Royal Mail. Second Class Post (2 - 5 working days) is our default delivery, but you can upgrade this to first class (1-3 days) for a small additional charge. We try to pack so that it will fit through a standard letterbox but some items are just too big.
Items which do not fit within Royal Mail's strict parcel sizes are sent by courier which can take up to 5 days - you will usually see a note on the item description which suggests courier delivery. Typically, frames over 15", stands, large fabric quantities supplied on the bolt and some storage items may be sent by courier - this list is not exclusive.
CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR DELIVERY 2020 Our last Order Date for standard Pre-Christmas delivery within the UK is Thursday 10 December 2020 and we recommend you select first class post. If you wish to order after this date for pre-Christmas delivery - please consider Courier (2/3 days) or RM Special Delivery (Guaranteed Next Day) as I can make no promises otherwise. I'm sure you will understand the special circumstances of this year.
Our last dispatch before Christmas will be Tuesday 22 December 2020 but WE DO NOT EXPECT THIS TO BE DELIVERED PRIOR TO CHRISTMAS UNLESS YOU USE RM SPECIAL DELIVERY.
We are closing for phone orders from 7pm 22 December 2020 until 3 January 2020. Online ordering and queries will remain active over the Christmas period but we will not be dispatching.
All orders placed during the Christmas and New Year period will be processed as soon as possible and in the order they are received. Please have patience during Royal Mail's busiest period.

GOING GREEN This year (2019) we are aiming to reduce the amount and type of plastic packaging we use to dispatch your orders so you may find that your threads and fabrics are now packaged together.
We are moving to using biodegradeable packaging where we have control.
2020 Update - where we have control, all packaging has been reduced, most of it is biodegradeable (some super-large bags are not yet) and we have been discussing packaging options with manufacturers.
