We have shopping cart on our web
site which is available through our Online Catalog page.
You can check out using a credit card or even just
tell us to use information you have already
provided us. While our entire inventory isn't
likely to show up in the on-line catalog it will
make the most common things available this way. It
is not a real-time inventory system so if you need
to know if we have an item in stock, please call
or e-mail us.
Prices in the online catalog are
subject to change and we reserve the right to
charge the new price so your order total may be
different from the online receipt. We try to keep
the site as up-to-date as we can but that's not
always possible. Often when we re-order items
prices have gone up and we don't know that in
advance. If that is not acceptable to you, please
note that in the Special Instructions or give us a
call to confirm a specific price.
To use the shopping cart you'll
usually find either an button next to the item
or if it's a long list after the list (see the
screen shot below) so you can place items in your
cart. Most things they are displayed together and
you can either add them one at a time (each item
will have its own Add button) or it may allow you
to select several items and add them all at once
(there will be one Add button for an entire list).
Our fabric, threads and
embellishments are searchable databases so you can
make a selection vs. having to look at the entire
list. Click on the downward facing triangle to be
shown the list and then click on the one you want.
Click on Perform Search when you are done. You can
be as specific or as general as you need to be.
Your search results will return
something like the following and then you can
select what you need. In the case the search was
for Aida type fabrics (AidaWeave) in 11 count with
White as part of the color.
For lists with just a Quantity
pull-down list (see the above screen shot) you
must select a size BEFORE you click on the Add
button. If you click Add without selecting a
size/quantity you'll get an error message telling
you to select a quantity. For fabrics you can tell
us if you want your fabric serged (clean finished)
or your canvas taped by placing a check mark in
Many of the lists (mostly threads)
have items in a list with one or more columns and
an area to enter the quantity for a given size.
You can enter a quantity in any of the columns so
that if you want the same item in more than one
size you can do so by entering a quantity in both
columns (see the first item in the example below).
Most threads also have a check box you can check
if you want your thread in a single dyelot. Since
dyelots do vary we recommend you check this box if
you need a consistent color.
When you're ready to put this in
your cart, press the button at the bottom of
The shopping cart is set up so that
you don't see the items in the cart every time you
add something. I personally find this really
annoying if I'm adding a number of items such as
threads. You can view your cart at any time by
selecting the button, usually at the
bottom of a page. After you've added an item
you'll see a brief message telling you the item
was added then you'll go back to the page you were
just on. If there isn't a Clear Form button at the
bottom of a list you'll have to REFRESH the page
in your browser to clear everything in that list.
Nothing is charged until your order
is ready to be shipped so the actual shipping cost
will be added at that time - the cart will give
you an estimate based on your shipping address and
the method you chose. We currently have to
estimate the weight of individual items for the
shopping cart so it's not 100% accurate. Again,
your card won't be charged until the order is
ready and all of that is done by us at the shop
vs. on-line. So if you want to add to an order
you've placed and it's not gone out yet, you can
make a note of that in the Comments field
on the checkout form.
If you have any questions, concerns
or comments with our online ordering please
contact us. If you run into problems you're more
than welcome to call us to place your order.
