Orders weighing more than 2lbs will incur surcharges.
International customers please note that the shipping costs quoted in your order are for packages weighing up to 2 lbs. If heavier items are ordered (eg needlework frames, multiple kits, and some heavier charts etc) additional shipping charges will apply. In those cases we will charge actual shipping costs. We will notify you if the shipping rate will be different to that displayed in the cart.
All packages are sent insured via Airmail unless requested otherwise. Once the package has left here we are unable to control the speed of delivery. Many times packages will arrive in Europe and many other overseas destinations within a week to 10 days. Packages can also take longer (3 weeks or more) and it is for this reason that we are unable to send a replacement package (for insured orders) until the insurance claim is processed (we are required to wait 45 days before filing a claim, and processing typically takes a further 2-3 weeks).
Insurance is not available to all countries. The following countries are excluded:
Abkhazia, Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola (including Cabinda), Bangladesh, Barbados, Benin, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Burma, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Chechnia, Congo, Cuba, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea - Bissau, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, truck/rail shipments to and within Mexico other than as a connecting conveyance, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Papua/New Guinea, Paraguay, Qatar, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Venezuela, and Yemen.
