Payment & Shipping

Payment Details:
Payments are gladly accepted online by Visa, Mastercard or Pay Pal.

For our customers who are not comfortable with submitting payments online we do accept money orders.  Shipment will be delayed until payment is received.  We will also accept telephone orders.  Because we are based in a private home & hate telemarketers as much as everyone else we do not provide our telephone number on the website.  Customers may email us to request a phone order & we will provide a telephone number via email.  We will process your credit card manually.

For our Canadian customers we will accept email money transfers in Canadian funds.  Please send us an email stating the patterns you wish to purchase.  We will send you an updated invoice in Canadian currency using the exchange rate posted online.

Our checkout page is secure for your safety.  We use secure servers for your credit card & payment information.

Please note that orders are processed in US funds.  If you use the currency converter that is displayed at the top each page your payment will be converted into US funds once you reach the secure checkout page.
