Returns for damaged or defective products
We take every care to properly protect our items from damage during shipping. That said, should you receive a package that was damaged during shipping we will replace the item for you. Simply go to our returns portal and we will issue you a no-hassle returns label. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or ping us on chat for help. We will do our best to replace the damaged item you ordered at no cost to you.
Please note that specialty items like fabric with limited availability, may no longer be available. In that case, we will contact you with a recommendation for a comparable substitution or give you the option for store credit.
For items damaged in shipping, we require a photo of the damaged box and corresponding damage to the product as a result of the carrier’s mishandling of the product. This will serve as proof of shipping damage. This is required for all exchanges due to shipping damage to help us file a claim with the carrier should we need or want to.
Before returning the item, please be sure to take and provide photos of both the box and the product. For your convenience, you can send us photos through chat on our site or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Exempt from returns
Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned. We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases.
Additional non-returnable items:
- Gift cards
- Downloadable software products
- Some health and personal care items
There are certain situations where only partial credits are granted:
- Book with obvious signs of use
- Items that have been opened.
- Any item not in its original condition is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error.
- Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery
Due to the nature of our business, we don’t offer refunds for returned purchases. It can be very tricky rehoming fabric, threads, and other textile items from a quilt shops, therefore we want to offer the best possible solution for all of our customers.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of store credit and in rare cases, a refund.
If you are approved, then your credit will be processed, and will automatically be applied to your account within a certain amount of days.
Only regular-priced items may be returned. Sale items cannot be returned.
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.
If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send the store credit to the gift giver and they will find out about your return.
To return your product, please mail the items to: 5100-B1, #318, Clayton Rd, Concord, CA 94521.
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund or credit, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund or credit.
Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you may vary.
We recommend always using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item so these measures help protect your return.
