Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
Pattern Stash specializes in vintage sewing patterns with all their charm, including the wear & tear of use and age. I sew with vintage patterns, and I’m a pattern collector, so I know how important it is to be specific about pattern condition and completeness.

Since pattern size measurements changed so many times over the 20th century, patterns are listed with bust or waist size, in inches, in the title, so you can search in my shop for your size. Children's patterns are listed by size number in the title. Contemporary patterns are generally listed by size in the title.

My home and workspace are fragrance-, pet-, and smoke-free, and if a pattern has an odor from its previous life, I'll include that information. Because of my own sensitivities, I never use dryer sheets or other fragrances to cover odors.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal
Returns and exchanges
Sales are final, so please convo with questions prior to purchase. If your purchases are not as I have described them, please convo me to arrange to return them for refund.
Payment
Pattern Stash accepts only PayPal and Google Checkout. PayPal payment is expected at the time of purchase. For Google Checkout, place a message in the Note to Seller requesting an invoice. If you are purchasing multiple patterns, make a single payment for all at one time. Please convo me if you need to request more than one day` to finish shopping.
Shipping
Patterns ship first class, and fragile very old vintage patterns ship in an archival plastic sleeve & backing board, and a cardboard mailer, for their protection.

PayPal requires that packages be mailed to the address they give me. If you have moved, give your new address to PayPal before making payment.

I ship patterns to many countries - see the listing for details. No purchases will be marked "gift" on the customs declaration. International buyers are responsible for any duties or customs on their purchases.

Wherever possible, I reuse clean bubble wrap or bubble mailers, to minimize the production of new plastic.
