Shop FAQ

Ordering online

You can order most products in my Shop section directly from this website,  either for download or to be shipped. There are a few items, such as my early books, that are only available through other suppliers, noted on those product’s pages.

Your purchase will be handled by PayPal.  If you do not have a PayPal account, you may use a credit card via PayPal. All of your secure credit card information will be entered only on the PayPal website. If you are ordering products that need to be shipped, enter your address in the shopping cart and it will calculate shipping and any applicable sales tax.

Shipping Fees and Timing

Shipping prices is for the lower 48 states, items shipped to Alaska or Hawaii will be accessed on an individual basis.

Frankly Friends, this is a Mom and Papa organization, (Papa likes to be called the CEO, but don’t tell him that stands for Carries Everything Out). We base the shipping fees not on our actual costs, rather on what would be fair to you. To get the lowest rate, we ship the books, patterns and DVDs using media mail rate at USPS which usually arrive within 10 days. Other items are shipped First Class mail and only take a few days from the day they are shipped. So that brings us back to the schedule of the shipping department which is closed when the CEO’s services get outsourced to the HQD Transportation Department to chauffeur Joanie for teaching engagements.

Long story short, we will do our best to get your items to you in about two weeks and often a lot less.  Contact Joanie to ask if there will be a delay, items may be able to be shipped from a remote location.

Downloading and Printing a pattern:

Our patterns were designed with a colored front and back cover and a color photo of the project when available. You can read the document on screen and then print the entire document or specific pages. You may print in color or with a black only printer. Be assured that all of the instructional text is in black and all of the design pages use a heavy line weight that can be traced easily.

Autographed Books

Joanie will be happy to autograph a book and personalize it for you. When you “check out” indicate  in the “Order Notes” if you would like the book autographed and who to personalize it to. Personalized items may not be returned.

Sales Tax

The appropriate sales tax will be collected from buyers who reside in Wisconsin for shipped and downloadable items.
