Shipping Details

We do our best to get your orders out as fast as we can, as we realize you have deadlines for your customers/students. 

For most town and cities, we ship by UPS or Purolator, so that you can receive your order sooner. Please be sure to include street address, if available. For rural area and box numbers, we use Expedited Post (for example, Canada Post).

**For orders with flat-rate shipping charges, we will choose the best method to ship your order.  If you request a specific shipping company, the actual shipping cost will be charged on your order.

For  orders with bulk items (quantities/price), the actual freight will be charged, as we cannot subsidize the extra cost of shipping.

We are not liable for stolen packages.  Please ship your orders to an address where someone is available to receive them.


We are now offering FREE shipping on most orders over $300.00 (before shipping and tax). This offer does not apply to bulk orders, or "Separate Shipping Item" such as hangers.

Clearance fabric bundles are first come, first served.  We will delete fabric bundles as they are sold.  In instances that multiple orders are placed for the same bundle, the first order placed will receive the bundle.

Please note that bundles are sold as-is and items cannot be changed or substituted.  Some fabric may have slight damage, holes, seams or minor marks.  Any major damage will be noted. Although the entire piece(s) of fabric may not be useable, these remnants are popular for small pieces to patch/repair, use for small projects, etc.
