Pat on the Back

Speed of in stock items - one day
Fabrics, notions, patterns, and most everything in stock generally shipped within one business day.

My reputation for processing in-stock orders speedily is outstanding! (see reviews here).

Speed of handcrafted items - varies
Items created specifically for you, such as insulated bottle totes, and any other handcrafted creation are shipped generally within a week most often, but can take up to three weeks during holiday season September - December

How much to ship?
When you add items to your cart after signing in, the default speed is PRIORITY. When first-class is available (under 1 pound) you'll be able to change the shipping method when you check out. FYI, one yard of fabric or one bottle tote generally weighs 4-6 oz.

Flat rate Shipping may be LOWER than rate shown in cart. Flat-rate packaging may lower your cost, as well as first-class options for small orders. Tracking is available for ALL orders. The USPS calculator can't take into account all potential shapes and sizes, but Pat can!

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION - PLEASE READ NOW TO SAVE TIME LATER
I always find the most economic and and efficient way to ship. Shipping overpayments greater than $2 are generally refunded by me after you receive your package.
USPS' shipping calculator cannot possibly account for flat-rate and regional rate packaging used for packages exceeding 16 oz (one pound).

Tracking sent via usps.com, fedex.com or ups.com. You receive an additional shipment notification e-mail with tracking. Orders normally shipped within 1 business day. UPS, FedEx & USPS have shipping calculators.

EXPRESS SERVICE AKA RUSH
Need your handcrafted creations in a jiffy? If you need your handcrafted items created more quickly than my standard production time, seasonally up to three weeks from September through December, simply add Please rush!!!THIS LISTING to your cart, in the speed you need, for EACH made-to-order item in your order. 
Rush is not needed for ready-to-ship items - generally those with an "Add to cart" button. Custom handcrafted items generally have a "Pre-order" button.

MESSAGE ME FIRST, and if I'm able to ship your order out sooner than my posted production time, I will let you know.

When you pay this rush fee, I will work around the clock in order to guarantee your item will be handcrafted and given to the Post Office within the time frame* you select.

NOTE: Shipping rates will appear on the item(s) you order, when added to your cart. Please make sure you upgrade the shipping to Priority Mail on that part of your order. See below for one business day items - just about everything in stock.

* Orders must be received by 12:00 noon MST, Monday through Friday. Orders received over the weekend will be processed as if they were placed on Monday.


FULL BOLT AND WHOLESALE ORDERS
Actual shipping charges apply. Shipping based on weight. Message me for details. Generally the shopping cart will OVERESTIMATE your rate.


INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
Pat is NOT responsible for, nor is not aware of any additional taxes, fees, tariffs, or any other charges on International orders at your destination. Please make sure you are fully informed about any charges once your order reaches you. When you choose flat-rate or any other priority service, you are responsible for any loss due to postal service errors unless you have agreed to insure your parcel. Generally, parcels are insurable and trackable with the Express Service from the USPS. By placing your order you have acknowledged this responsibility. I have not yet had any international losses.
