    I just went online to callylillyquilt shop to purchase the pattern, the price for the table topper was 10.00, shipping was 9.95. The shipping cost is crazy. does anyone know of another site that offers this pattern ,with cheaper shipping? thank you for your help..........Michele

    i have in the past contacted on line shops personally when i wanted to purchase just a pattern but their shipping amounts are based on purchase price not weight. every time i have taken the time to make the call the shipping has been adjusted for me to be actual shipping cost (usually about $1)i have called them and said, this is just a pattern you should be able to just put it into a regular envelope...i would love to shop with your shop more but can not justify shipping costs so high for just a pattern.
    if you want the pattern it is worth the phone call to save $8-$9.

    lots of shops are struggling right now. Maybe google and see if you can find a better deal. That's what I do.

    Some online quilt shops are like eBay - they make plenty of money on the shipping charges. It's a great idea to contact them and get your shipping costs reduced to a fair amount.

    Seems like some of these online quilt shops are shooting themselves in the foot. If they keep it up, they'll be out of businesses in no time.

    They should go to MSQC and see how they do it!

    Shipping cost prevents me from ordering many things. The price some charge for shipping has got to be the most profit making.
    I would like this pattern also, but shipping price, no way.

    no, i ordered a ruler lately and shipping was high!! now i'm sorry i ordered it. usually a high shipping cost prevents me from ordering from a company.

    What changed? I would hate for a business to get a bad rep. if undeserved.

    If you are willing to pay full price for something, but the shipping is out of range, ask your LQS to order it. The price is the same and no shipping for you.

    Otherwise I look for it on sale or borrow it or swap with someone, this board is a terrific venue for making swaps and obtaining used items.

    I posted the correction, for some reason when I checked remove the ruler from the order it must have calulated both items. The ruler and the pattern were both on there, when I went back so I removed the ruler again and it showed 2.99 for shipping on the pattern.......Sorry for the misunderstanding! I surely did not intend to cause any trouble for the company.........Michele
