Our rates are based on the dollar amount of the whole order. When you place an order and proceed to checkout our shopping cart will calculate the shipping. This is an "estimated" rate. In some cases this may be too high. Your card is charged at the time of shipping so we can adjust, if needed.

Generally, we send patterns, notions and 1-2 yards standard weight/width cotton USPS First Class Mail. We can fit 6-8 yards of standard weight/width cotton in a USPS Flat Rate Envelope. In the US we can send using Regional Boxes. The price depends on the items, weight and the location. In many cases this is less than a Flat Rate Box. When it is less we will adjust your shipping at the time of sending. The Medium Flat Rate Box holds about 20-22 yards of standard weight/width cotton. The Large Flat Rate box hold about 30 yards.

The amounts listed above may vary depending on your order. It does not include flannel, corduroy, decor, 54-60" wide fabric nor thick fabric such as plush fabric, i.e. Minkee. Please contact us if you need any information on shipping rates and packaging.
