Christmas Posting Dates

Posted by

I can’t believe it’s now just under 2 weeks until Christmas! So, there’s not long left if you want to squeeze in some last-minute Christmas sewing or maybe you still have some stocking fillers left to buy. We wanted to update you on the last recommended dates to place your orders in time for Christmas and we will also be taking a little time off to enjoy the holidays so we have updated when we will be posting over Christmas.

Last Posting Dates for Christmas

We post all of our orders via Royal Mail so we wanted to update you on their last recommended posting days to get your orders in time for Christmas. Below are the dates you will need to have placed your order with us by for us to post the next day.


UK:

Monday 17th December 2nd Class

Wednesday 19th December 1st Class

International:

Thursday 13th December- Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Poland, Sweden, USA and Canada

(Canada post may be delayed due to the backlog of post created by Canadian Postal Strikes)

Sunday 16th December- Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland

Monday 17th December- Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg

If the country for your delivery address isn’t listed above then that means the last recommended posting date has passed and your order may not arrive before Christmas.

All of the dates listed above are in line with Royal Mail’s recommended last posting dates, these are not guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas, unfortunately if your order doesn’t arrive in time it is out of our control. Obviously, we don’t recommend leaving your orders to the very last moment, so just to be safe we recommend getting your orders in early.

Opening times for our Christmas Break

We are going to give ourselves a little break over Christmas and New Year to spend some time with our families (and stuff ourselves with mince pies and drink plenty of mulled wine!) So the last date we will be posting any orders is Friday 21st December and we will start posting again on the 2nd of January. Our website will still be open though, so you can still place your orders (look out for our Boxing Day sale!) but they just won’t be shipped until 2nd of January.

We hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
