Shop Policies

Quintessential Quilting reserves the right to make changes regarding the prices of the products offered at any time.

Shipping Policy

Quintessential Quilting ships physical products within the United States only. PDF download products are delivered online and do not require shipping. Downloads are available anywhere in the world.

For in-stock items, Quintessential Quilting will make every effort to ship within 7 business days of receiving your order. Orders are shipped on business days only. Business days are Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. The length of time required to fill an order will depend on several factors including but not limited to the size of the order; the time of the year; the number of other orders already placed; our out-of-town vending schedule.

Products are shipped in the USA via United States Post Office Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. When checking out, the shopping cart will show you the shipping cost, which is a flat rate based on your total purchase price.

Delivery time is calculated according to actual “business days” from the date shipped and does not include weekends or holidays. This estimate is also displayed in the shopping cart when you check out.

Priority Mail is generally listed as 2-3 days delivery within the United States, but may take up to 5 days depending on the distance and other factors. These delivery estimates are not guaranteed by USPS or by Quintessential Quilting. Sometimes delivery times are affected by internal factors at USPS that we cannot control.

Returns Policy

We hope that you are completely satisfied with your purchase from Quintessential Quilting. However, we have a no return policy on educational materials such as books and DVDs.

If your product arrives damaged due to shipping, you may make a claim with the USPS because priority mail is insured up to $50. All of our products are quality-inspected prior to leaving our store and if damage has occurred it did so during shipping.

Lost Shipments

USPS Priority Mail - if an order hasn't arrived within 14 days, please contact us. We will check the delivery confirmation status and have USPS investigate. If the delivery confirmation status shows the package as being delivered to the correct address, we cannot reship, refund, or replace the order. If the delivery status shows that it hasn't yet been delivered, we will send out a replacement order.

International Orders

Currently we only ship products to United States delivery addresses.

If you are outside the United States, you won't be able to create a customer account or purchase any products through this website. You may contact us. Tell us your country and the products you would like to purchase. A representative will contact you with possible availability.
