Thank you for visiting Pieces of Contentment Etsy store, a new venture born out of my desire to continue creating beautiful and useful quilts and gifts as well as offering some resources for the home sewer.

As my primary focus is family (and homeschooling my children) there will generally only be a small number of items offered for sale, added to as time allows.

Returns and exchange details
My goal is for you to be delighted with your purchase, but if you are not satisfied you may return it for a full refund (not including shipping charges). Please contact me within two weeks of receiving your purchase to make return or refund arrangements.

In the case of all returns or exchanges, you will be responsible for return shipping charges. Your money will be refunded once the item safely arrives in saleable condition. Returns or refunds will not be given on custom orders.
You may pay via Direct Check Out (visa, mastercard, american express, discover), PayPal or Etsy Gift Cards.

Payment must be received prior to shipment, preferably within 72 hours of purchase in order to avoid cancellation of the transaction.
FLAT RATE shipping of $3.50 for ALL Australian orders.

Orders are shipped within 1-3 business days. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery within Australia.

Whilst I am happy to ship to the US, Canada and New Zealand, be aware that orders typically take 2 to 6 WEEKS to arrive. Items sent via Economy Air with Australia Post DO NOT have tracking.

Shipping costs are calculated by weight. Two units (a whole metre) of poplin fabric can usually ship for the same price as one unit (under 250g). The shipping cost for three to five units (1.5m to 2.5m) is usually the same (under 500g). Under 1kg is the next shipping tier (usually 6 to 11 units of fabric or up to 5.5m). Shipping charges more than $2 above cost will be refunded.

UPGRADE for INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING to STANDARD AIR is strongly recommended. For $24 AUD (around $17 USD) we can ship up to 3m (6 units) of poplin fabric in an Australia Post Satchel ($18 AUD to NZ). This comes with tracking and estimated delivery time of 10 days to 4 weeks. Insurance can be purchased for an additional $10 AUD. International Express Shipping is also offered (around one week delivery with email tracking updates and signature on delivery). The prices for shipping and upgrade options will appear as drop-down options in your shopping cart as you add items. Again, shipping charges significantly above cost will be refunded.

All orders are carefully packaged and sent via Australia Post. Fabric orders are usually wrapped in true biodegradable cellophane, most orders up to 2.5m are shipped in a large rigid Australian Post cardboard mailing envelope. Occasionally an order may be sent in more than one envelope/mailer/parcel, if it is more economical to do so. Most items ship according to weight, therefore packaging is usually kept to a minimum.

We cannot be responsible for orders lost or delayed.

Local collection can also be arranged.
