As times change, so must we. The USPS has raised its shipping rates, which affects us both on incoming and outgoing parcels. So, starting March 1st, 2021 we will return to our regular pre-pandemic threshold for free shipping: most items in most US orders over $50 can ship free.
As always, some over-sized, heavy, and/or fragile items that require special packaging are not eligible for free shipping. Also on March 1st, we will add books and other media to that list of exclusions. To ship them with appropriate packaging so we're confident they'll arrive to you in good condition, well, they're just too dang heavy.
Never fear, though! Yarn, needles, and notions (the vast majority of the items we carry and that our customers order) can still ship free as part of most US orders over $50.
