Delivery & Returns

We accept all major credit and debit cards through PayPal and Stripe, and including Google Pay and Apple Pay. All orders must be placed through the website. Unfortunately we no longer accept telephone orders.

Postage & Shipping

We usually post your order on the same day if your order is received by 1pm (Monday - Thursday). Sometimes this isn't possible if we are very busy, but we will do our best to ship your order on the same day or the following working day. Please allow 48 hours for your order to dispatch.

Each order is carefully packaged inside a protective recyclable bubble envelope or cardboard postal box and a certificate of posting is obtained for each order. We'll also send you an email to let you know your order has been processed and your stitch markers are on their way!

UK Customers

For delivery to a UK address, we offer the choice of Royal Mail 1st class or Royal Mail Signed For. Although we dispatch orders daily, if an order is placed after 2:00pm it's unlikely to be sent off that same day.  

UK - First Class - £1.50  Free shipping on orders over £6

UK - Second Class - £1.10

UK - First Class Signed For - £2.50 

Choose your postage service when you checkout. The free postage excludes any wholesale ordering, which has a fixed shipping cost per item.

Europe, US, Canada, Australia and other international customers 



Due to increased handling charges and demand for trackable shipments, we now offer an insured service for all orders that is added automatically during  checkout. Unfortunately we have to pass these costs on to our customers. If you prefer not to have your order tracked and to be sent by Airmail to Europe and North America destinations we will dispatch your order at your own risk, and we cannot be responsible for missing/lost orders unless they are tracked.
