As we are an online only retailer we are still working as usual to send out orders.
However due to Royal Mail staff shortages at the moment they are collecting earlier than normal each day. Anytime after 12pm instead of the usual 3pm.
We will first ship all orders placed the previous afternoon / evening. We can no longer guarantee to ship any orders the same day they are placed.
Some orders are still being delivered the following day as expected but some orders are taking 3 or 4 days or longer to arrive, due to staff shortages at Royal Mail. This really just depends on what's happening in your area at the moment. Please be patient and only contact us if your order hasn't arrived after 7 working days.
We have stopped offering free shipping at the moment because this would have been sent 2nd class and we have noticed that this was taking 7 days or more to arrive.
Outside the UK we would encourage you to only order if you are confident your own postal service is operating as normal as well as any Royal Mail delivery partners, such as GLS which is a common one in the EU. All orders may take longer to arrive due to postal staff shortages at this time. Occasionally some international orders are taking between 10 - 30 working days (excludes weekends and bank holidays) to arrive. Please do not order if you can't wait this long for your order.
UK Mainland Shipping.
There is a £3 shipping fee per order.
We aim to ship your order within 1 working day. Most orders are sent via royal mail.
Items that qualify as a large letter, that is less than 35cm x 25cm x 2.5cm and less than 750g will be sent first class. Delivery should take 1-2 days. This size package should easily fit through a normal letter box.
All other items, including free shipping items will be sent second class. Delivery should take 2-3 working days.
Depending on the physical size of your order it may not fit through your letterbox. If you are not available at the time a sorry we missed you card will be left or it may be left in your safe place such as, porch, shed, recycling bin, with a neighbour etc as agreed with Royal Mail.
Depending on the value of your order you may be required to sign for your delivery. If you are not available at the time a sorry we missed you card will be left.
Large orders, over 2kg or over 45 x 35 x 16 cm when boxed may be sent via courier which should take 2-4 days to arrive. If this is the case once dispatched we will provide tracking so you know when to expect your delivery. You will normally be provided with a one hour window for your delivery as well as alternative delivery options. You must enter your mobile number during checkout so that you receive the text messages about your delivery from the courier.
Large complicated orders such as 20 fabrics or more or upwards of £150 can take an hour or more to process, this along with the cut off times to book a collection can often mean that your order might not get collected by the courier until the following working day.
We try our best to ship the same day any orders placed before 3pm, but it is not always possible. If your order is time sensitive please use the contact us page, to discuss if we can post the same day, before placing your order.
At this time we do not offer different options for shipping such as next day or economy shipping.
