Postage information and delays

Due to the overwhelming backlog of parcels at Royal Mail
Just a note to let you know there is a lot of Royal Mail Strikes this month January 2023

We are so sorry for the inconvenience this maybe coursing and the delayed of your parcels. We have contacted other delivery companies to see if they can take our parcels elsewhere and they are so far behind on there Collection and delivery services too.
This is taking a hit on effort for our business and coursing a lot of problems for us as well as other businesses. So please be patient with our service at the moment as this is out of our hands.

We have changed the days we post out. So all weekend orders (Friday to Sunday) are packed on Mondays and taken to the post office on Tuesday. Then in the week orders (Monday to Thursday) will be packed on Fridays and taken to the post office on Saturday. Everything is 2nd class, however if you want to upgrade your postage to 1st class please message us at but these will go on the same postal day as 2nd class to the post office.

For customers outside the UK please scroll down to see the information for oversea postage.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience this has coursed but please once again keep supporting small businesses.

There will be videos linked to each pattern showing you how to make each row (the blocks as well) this is designed so only pattern buyers get the videos.

Becky has wanted to bring a mini sewing course to for ages. The quilt will have loads of new and old style quilting technique and Becky will be holding you hand along the way.
