Returns and exchanges
Buying fabric online can be tricky. Colors do not always show through the screen. As a quilter and sewer, I've been there and understand. That's why we offer a very flexible return policy.

If, for any reason, you are not 100% happy within 30 days of your purchase, you may return the product for a full refund (less shipping).

Sale fabric and patterns are final sale.

Thank you!
PayPal is presently our favorite form of payment.

Ohio residents will be charged 7% Sales Tax.

If you do not reside in Ohio but your package will be shipped to an address in Ohio, an adjusted invoice including 7% Sales Tax is needed.
Now for the not-so-fun part of our transaction... shipping policies :-)

-All orders placed by 3 p.m. will ship next business day. Orders placed on a weekend or holiday will ship next business day.
-If you'd like your package shipped on a special day or way, please convo me and we will work out a plan just for you!
-Swell Cloth ships to United States, Canada, and International addresses.
-Your order will be shipped to the address in PayPal, unless otherwise directed in the comments box during checkout.
-Like you, I don't like to feel that I'm being overcharged for shipping. If you think you are, please convo me to discuss.

Please note that US First Class Shipping to US addresses takes approximately 7 business days from the date of shipment to arrive. Only domestic packages will ship via First Class (see International Shipping notes below).

Please note that US Priority Mail Shipping to US addresses takes approximately 2-3 business days from the date of shipment to arrive.

Please note that all International (including Canada) packages will ship Priority Mail. These packages can be tracked until they leave the US. Once the packages leave the US, tracking is not available.

International Packages take anywhere from 14-21 business days from the date of shipment to arrive. Occasionally, a package will get stuck in customs, which further delays arrival.

Import fees and duties are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Under no circumstances can the value of the product contained in the package be understated to avoid or minimize fees. If an item is detained in customs, it is the purchaser's responsibility to work with their countries system to work out the release.

While I try very hard to set up the shipping costs to be as accurate as possible, occasionally I may need to adjust the shipping up to cover costs. This is especially true when multiple bundles or heavier weight fabric (like Echino) are being purchased. If this happens, I will send you a convo to work out an invoice adjustment. Thanks for your cooperation! :-)

Like you, I do not like to feel I'm being overcharged shipping. I make a special point to refund shipping over charges back to your PayPal account. If for some reason I miss doing this, please do not hesitate to contact me, and we'll get it straightened out. Thanks!
