Postage Rates
UPDATED FEBRUARY 2016
.
US Address - $5.75 Priority Mail
I can always fit 2 books (sometimes 3) in the US flat rate Priority envelope, so you save.  
If your order of 3 or more books will not fit in the flat rate envelope, I will contact you before mailing to approve extra postage. 
.
NEVER A HANDLING FEE
I am Canadian, but we are close enough to Niagara Falls NY that we can take advantage of the US postal service to send your books.

Address Outside of the USA 

  • Canada & Mexico $23.95 Global Priority
  • $22.95 First Class International Parcel
  • $33.95 Global Priority 
Until now, I have always sent overseas orders Global Priority, but there was a shocking increase in the price in January 2016, so First Class International is the default now.

The shopping cart will add $22.95 for a First Class International Package rate. If you prefer Global Priority for $33.95, please leave a comment on the order and I will contact you with details for paying the $11 difference.
If your order weighs more than 2 pounds (e.g. 2 Millefiori books, Global Priority is the  only service available. I will contact you with details for paying the $11 difference.

  • I refund the difference whenever the actual postage is less than the amount added by the shopping cart, 
  • Global Priority is usually the best price for multiple copies of Quilted Diamonds, Millefiori Quilts, The Patchworks of Lucy Boston, The Inklingo Handbook and others.
  • If the postage of $22.95 is not enough, I will contact you before mailing to approve the extra postage.

I hope quilters like the First Class International service as much as I expect, but delivery times may vary.

SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT POSTAGE FOR CANADA

Normally, all orders are mailed from Niagara Falls NY because it costs less and the delivery is about the same. However, I look at every order individually and I mail books in Canada when it costs less.

If you order more than one book, it is often necessary to mail from NY to get the best rate because Canada Post restricts the thickness and weight of Xpresspost envelopes. The American flat rate Global Priority envelope can hold 2 or more books.

  • At the current exchange rates (January 2016), for addresses in Ontario and Quebec, the postage and tax on ONE Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC) book works out to about $5 instead of $23.95 First Class in a white envelope, so I manually refund the difference. For addresses in other provinces, postage is slightly more. 
  • I will update this page if the exchange rate changes significantly.  
  • 5% tax is only charged on books mailed in Canada to a Canadian address and it is higher on two books, of course.
  • Heavier books like Quilted Diamonds, Millefiori Quilts, The Patchworks of Lucy Boston, The Inklingo Handbook and others must be sent Xpresspost or Global Priority.

Single copies of these 3 books can be sent First Class within in Canada instead of Global Priority for a significant saving compared to the amount added by the shopping cart:

  • Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC)
  • Jane Austen Patchwork Mystery (JAPM)
  • Jane Austen's Writing Table Quilts (JAWTQ)

All prices are in US dollars.
