Shipping

We strive to ship most items the next business day after receiving a cleared payment, excluding weekends and holidays.  More specifically, if we receive your order by 6pm MST, it should ship the next business day (again, excluding weekends and holidays).  If we are especially busy, your order may be held up slightly, but rest assured we'll get it out the door as soon as we can.

If your order is received by 6pm MST on . . . . . .

We ship all packages through USPS First Class, Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express.

The shipping rates on this site are calculated based the value of your order.  With so many different fabrics at different lengths and price points, this is the most simple way to do it.  The system isn't completely exact, but this should give you a good idea of how much will likely fit into a particular package, and what that might cost to ship to your location.  If you would like to completely fill a flat rate envelope or box to save on shipping, please click here for more information.

If you believe that you have been overcharged for shipping (according to this chart) on your order, simply leave a note at checkout, or contact us after you place your order.  If there was an overage, we'll be happy to issue a refund. 

To receive our best combined shipping rates, all items must be paid for in one transaction. If you have paid for an order and wish to add more to the same package before shipment, there will be an additional 35 cent fee to cover the additional payment processing fees for the second transaction.

All shipping rates are based on regular quilting/fashion weight fabric that is 44" wide.

*Is is usually less expensive for Canadian customers to have large orders ship in more than one flat rate envelope rather than in a flat rate box.  You will have this option at checkout.  Please note that orders with any one continuous piece of 10 yards or more must be shipped in a higher priced box rather than separate envelopes.  If you select separate envelopes when you order requires a box, you will be billed for the additional shipping cost.

Please note that international packages are almost entirely untracked.  Aside from one or two initial scans in the US, packages are not tracked at all, either by the US Postal Service, or by any international postal service receiving your package.  Therefore, while we can provide proof of shipment on our end, there is no way for us to tell you where your package might be. 

Shipping insurance is included with some mail classes, and not included with others, as follows:
INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:
First Class Mail:
  Shipping insurance is not included.
Priority Mail:  Shipping insurance of $50 is included.  The insurance is only valid on theft, damage, or loss that occurs within the United States.  Any incidents after your package leaves the US are not covered. 
Priority Mail Express:  Shipping insurance of $100 is included.  The insurance is only valid on theft, damage, or loss that occurs within the United States.  Any incidents after your package leaves the US are not covered. 

If you'd like to add shipping insurance to your first class package, or add additional insurance for Priority Mail, you can add it at checkout.  Lost/damaged/stolen packages are exceedingly rare, but please note that Lily Bella Fabrics is not responsible for items after shipment.  By purchasing your order without insurance, you agree not to hold Lily Bella Fabrics liable for loss, damage or theft of your internationally shipped package. Shipping insurance is recommended for international customers, especially those making large purchases, because of the fact that international packages are not tracked.  Please understand that a package going missing or lost is a very, very rare event. Packages taking a long time to arrive, however, is not uncommon for international customers.

As per United States Federal Law, we are not able to mark international packages as gifts, nor are we able to misrepresent their declared value. Please note that some countries charge fees/duties/taxes on packages imported from the USA. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

You may upgrade your package to Priority Mail at checkout.  Due to fraud, we no longer offer Priority Mail Express at checkout for international customers.  However, if you are an established customer, we are willing to make an exception.  Please contact us before you order if you are an established customer who would like to upgrade to Priority Mail Express.

Shipping cost errors:
If you believe there was an error with the shipping calculator, and that you were overcharged for shipping (as per the prices on this page), please contact us.  If there was in fact a shipping overage, we'll be happy to issue a refund.  An example of this might be a situation in which you ordered 9 yards, plus one small pattern.  The shipping calculator will bump your package up to the next size shipping box, even though in real life, there was enough room in the smaller package to fit the pattern for no extra shipping charge.

Conversely, if there is an error with the shipping calculator that results in you being charged less for shipping than you should have been, Lily Bella Fabrics reserves the right to collect the balance of the shipping due before shipping your item.  For example, if you order a very large amount of fabric, more than our system is set up to calculate for, our system might return a value of no shipping charge.  We reserve the right to correct errors of this nature after the sale.  We will always contact you first, however.

In all instances, please note that the prices listed here are guidelines only.  In real life, what fits into a package depends largely on how heavy the items are, as well as the length of each cut or size of the item.
