US shipping is included in the $5 price, whenever possible. International shipping is generally extra since it costs more than domestic shipping.
The specials are all sewing/craft related and I'm trying to keep it interesting. It's more fun for both of us if there is some variety. So it will be things I already know you like (patterns), supplies you might need or want, and a few things that might be fun to try out. Sewing is such a broad topic, it will be a good time to explore some areas besides accessories. I will try to keep it to shorter projects and patterns that allow for small scale production.
The easiest way to see what is going on for $5 Friday, is to be on the email list. I send an email announcement on Friday morning. Keep in mind I'm on the West Coast, so my time zone is pretty much behind everyone else. For some of you it will be close to being Saturday by the time the email is out! But it's coming.
Besides the email list, you can also stop by here, or follow me on twitter. I'm terrible at twitter, but I do tweet my blog posts.
You can sign up for the email list here:
For patterns, I will host the sale, so you'll order directly through me. I'll make sure you get the pattern, and you are all squared away and ready to sew. Questions about sewing with my patterns can be sent to me. For patterns from other designers, I'll pass the sewing questions along to them and ask them to respond to you.
For supplies, some offers will be from me and some from other sellers. You may or may not be ordering directly through me. If you have questions about your order, you should contact the person you paid. This information is available in your PayPal account and on your PayPal receipt. At the beginning of your receipt it shows the name of the person or business you paid, and their email address.
If you've ordered supplies and are waiting for a package, please be patient. At just $5 the seller might get a lot of orders, so allow some extra time to ship. Between the shipping costs, selling fees, and cost of whatever they are selling, this also isn't a highly profitable thing for them to do (but offers other benefits). So let's thank them for being generous and offering such a sweet deal!
