I reserve the right to change prices listed without notice. All orders for products are subject to availability.
I only accept Paypal payments. If you do not have a Paypal account you can also pay with your debit or credit card through Paypal without signing up. Please see this page if you don’t have a Paypal account.
When paying with a Paypal eCheque, please note that you will only receive links to download digital items once payment has cleared. Likewise for physical items, they will not be shipped until payment has cleared. This usually takes 3-7 days. Please read this for more information.
Discounts and offers
Discounts and offers are valid only as described in the blog post/newsletter/etc. If you see a discount or offer mentioned after it has ended, I’m sorry that you missed it this time around, but discounts and offers will not be extended. Do sign up for the Polka & Bloom newsletter, or follow my blog to get notified when there are any special offers.
Are the patterns really free? Yes!
Tip jar? Donationware? I’m confused! The patterns are free, but you can make a small donation for them if you like. There is no obligation to make a donation! Thank you very much if you do, though!
Why do I have to go through checkout to download the free patterns? It’s the way the shopping cart works. And it’s fun for me to see which free patterns are popular. I won’t use your information in any way.
Creating an account
Do I have to create an account to make a purchase. Nope, that’s entirely optional! But there are advantages: next time you want to buy something from my shop you simply log in and don’t have to enter your details again. And you can log in to download patterns etc that you have bought.
Why do I have to give you my address when I’m buying digitial files? This information is required by the shopping cart. Unfortunately, there’s no way for me to turn this off.
Will my name be added to a mailing or newsletter list if I create an account? Nope, never! If you’d like to be kept informed of news or offers from Polka & Bloom you can sign up for the Polka & Bloom newsletter. But you will never be added to any list without your consent.
