Posting Your Quilt

Having lived for many years in an area that had limited shopping facilities I understand the issues involved in shopping by mail order.

If you send me a photograph of your quilt and include the measurements, I can advise you as to potential quilting options and estimated costs.

Prior to commencing any work on the quilt I will send  you 2 – 3 detailed written plans, including illustrations, so that you can confirm your preferred quilting style.

I have many mail order clients from all areas of Australia, and internationally, and I always try to give them the same quality of service as is received by my face to face clients.

Procedure for the Delivery of a Quilt to Always Quilting:

  • I ask that quilts be delivered to me 2 -3 weeks prior to the scheduled booking date to allow time for a quilting plan to be prepared for your approval.
  • I recommend that you send the quilt to me in “Post Preferred” packaging, sized to hold the quilt on return eg: a large Tough Bag will hold a finished quilt up to a queen size bed topper.
  • Always wrap the quilt securely inside a plastic bag before inserting it into the postal packaging.
    • Attach a sheet of paper detailing your name, postal & email address, & telephone number to the quilt with a safety-pin.
    • Upon receipt, I will remove the quilt from the plastic bag and hang it for storage.
  • Please advise me of the date that the quilt is posted so that I know to expect its arrival.
  • It is recommended that you insure your quilt when shipping. I carry insurance, limited to the value of fabrics, while the quilt is in my care but it is not covered while in transit.

Procedure for the Return of Quilts:

  • If you are unable to collect your finished quilt in person, it will be returned by Australia Post.
  • Postage & packing charges are at cost.
  • When we post your quilt we will add the following Australia Post “Features” to the standard postal service to cover your parcel against any loss or damage during transit.
    • Signature on Delivery so that the parcel can NOT be left in your letter box
    • Extra Cover
  • You will be advised of the date that your quilt was posted so that you will know to expect its arrival.

When you are ready to send your quilt to “Always Quilting” you can go to the Australia Post site for more information about postal rates.
