Shipping & Return Policies

Shipping & Delivery

Domestic Shipping inside the United States:

Prickly Pear Quilts (PPQ) strives to get your order to you as quickly as possible. Our standard (default) shipping method is USPS (United States Postal Service). Delivery is typically 1-4 days, excluding Sundays and holidays, but is not guaranteed. We do our best to process and ship same day or next, but please understand that 20 different fabrics verses a pattern may take just a little longer to process. Weather and conditions due to Covid, etc. may impact arrival time as well.

We try to keep shipping costs to a minimum. Our charges include shipping & handling, meaning not only will you be charged for the actual cost of shipping, but also for the other costs associated with shipping. These costs include but are not limited to, postage fees, envelopes, boxes, packing materials, tape, labels, equipment necessary for processing your orders (scales, software, dedicated printers etc.), and labor to process and package your order. These are just some of the costs directly associated with shipping your orders in a timely and
cost-effective manner. If you are ever in question of any of our shipping rates, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Customers are responsible for providing correct shipping addresses, phone numbers and email addresses when placing their ordering. If an order goes to a wrong address we will ask for your assistance in tracking down the package, such as contacting neighbors or your post office. We do not replace or reimburse for lost merchandise due to an incorrect address provided by the purchaser.
  1. Through our shipping program, there is $100 insurance coverage for lost or damaged merchandise. Merchandise that is reported as never arrived or stolen is not covered by insurance, nor will PPQ reimburse you or send new merchandise. If your order is lost or damaged, email us right away and we will submit a claim with USPS. USPS will conduct an investigation to determine if an order was delivered or lost and/or who is responsible for damage. Insurance reimbursement is at the sole discretion of the USPS and based on their investigation, not PPQ.
  2. PPQ may change standard shipping methods at our discretion if a shipment results in oversize charges. This most often would apply to orders that include sewing machines, batting, cutting mats, or other large items. Products noted as being shipped by a third party get shipped various methods, not always under our control.

This is beyond our control, and we suggest that you research Canada's policies. We understand that packages can be delayed going through customs, so we do our best to see that all rules are followed, and your packages arrive at your doorstep as swiftly as possible.
