How we treat your order

Thank you for coming this far. You are more than likely thinking of placing an order on our site.

Your question is how do we process your order.

  1. We do not take any payment from you until we have started to process your order in situ.
  2. If there are any missing items we will contact you.
  3. Once your order is ready to go we will work out the postage so that you get the best deal. We use Australia Post for most of our deliveries.
  4. Bulky items will cost more! Unfortunately we can’t do anything about that.
  5. During COVID lockdown we are sharing the cost of standard postage to our Australian customers if you place an order over $50.00 of product (excludes sale items & sewing machines). Express postage is extra if required
  6. Your credit details are held offsite in a Safe Depository and held for a limited time only. If you are waiting on back ordered goods we may have to call you for these details again as they will have been cleared from the SAFE.
