This ham was made to my specifications and stitchnerd was very very accommodating with my specific needs. I'd happily order this again if needed and could not be more happy with the outcome.

All items are shipped via the U.S. Postal Service. Depending on shipping service used, domestic packages will sometimes include tracking. Delivery of items should take less than 10 days to ship depending on your location, your local postal service, and weather conditions.

Most items in my shop, especially custom items, are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Delivery times with this service are shorter and can usually be tracked online. Shipping prices listed on each item in my shop will most likely be Priority Mail, except for small items such as trims like elastic, bias tape, etc. which are mailed via USPS First Class Mail. If you purchase multiple lightweight items, your package may be shipped via USPS Priority at sellers discretion.

Please keep in mind: my custom pressing aids (hams & seam rolls) are on the weighty/heavy side.

SHIPPING ADDRESS MISTAKES: I no longer remake or reship items at my cost for incorrect addresses given during check out. This has happened several times in the recent past and all orders were confirmed as delivered. If your package comes back to me for some reason then you must pay the additional shipping cost to have it shipped back to the new and corrected address.
****Please verify that you have given the correct address when you check out.**** Thank You!

PLEASE NOTE: If you prefer your pressing aid/s to be shipped via First Class, please contact me so I may create a listing just for you reflecting your shipping choice.

Unfortunately international shipping is pricey, you may contact me for a quote as international shipping varies by location. I usually ship Priority Mail on International orders because packages are insurable and because of the expedited delivery. There are more economical shipping services available for international orders however, buyer assumes all risks if a package is lost, stolen, etc.

Buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. As a seller, I cannot label your item "gift" on the customs label.

Please contact me if you would like the option of using a different shipping method as noted above.

All items are packaged carefully and I try to use recycled shipping materials whenever possible such as reusing like-new boxes, shipping peanuts, or bubble wrap. If you prefer brand new shipping material, please include a note with your order.

Most of my pieces are created by hand so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product! Some items are made with recycled materials, when this is the case, this information will be stated in the listing.

Everything I make is made with fabrics that I love. If you see something you like in my shop, buy it soon as the fabrics I use are sometimes no longer available and my existing supply is limited.
