We make every effort to ship our products to you using the most efficient carrier. We will let you know when your package ships, the carrier used and when you should expect it to be delivered. We provide this service at no cost to you. Very occasionally we ship items that are very heavy or need careful and extensive packing. Should this be the case, we may have to charge something for the shipping and will post the details in the item listing on our website. The only other time we will charge you shipping is when a large item, spinning wheel or loom, for example, is drop shipped from the manufacturer directly to you. We will let you know what those charges will be as quickly as we know.
