Postage & Delivery

The vast majority of our deliveries are by Royal Mail. Second Class Post (2 - 5 working days) is our default delivery, but you can upgrade this to first class (1-3 days) for a small additional charge. We try to pack so that it will fit through a standard letterbox but some items are just too big.
Items which do not fit within Royal Mail's strict parcel sizes are sent by courier which can take up to 5 days - you will usually see a note on the item description which suggests courier delivery. Typically, frames over 15", stands, large fabric quantities supplied on the bolt and some storage items may be sent by courier - this list is not exclusive.

If you are stuck at home, there is nothing better than a bit of stitching!

As of today - 18 March 2020 - we are fully operating with presently good stocks of all items. Our suppliers are busy, but coping well.

20 March 2020 - Update

We have been informed by Royal Mail and Couriers that they are operating as normal however you may find that there are local difficulties - you can check with your local delivery office if necessary.
If your item is too big for your letterbox, it is useful for Royal Mail to know where to leave the items so we have changed the 'where did you hear about us?' at checkout so that you can input delivery details which will be printed on your postage label.

31 March 2020 - Update

We are still open and very busy. Our usual dispatch times are a little more erratic but still within 2 working days - unless we contact you by email (please check your junk!)
We are still receiving stock but deliveries are also quite erratic.

5 April 2020 - Update

We remain open and very busy. I was able to get most items out within 48 hours or so but we have had a change to our Royal Mail collection to mornings, so that is extending to 60 hours. Our next dispatch will therefore be the morning of 6 April.

Royal Mail Deliveries are now generally DELAYED - it continues to make regular deliveries but please have patience!

We will update as necessary.

We hope you remain safe and well.

Dispatch and Delivery Times
We dispatch on working weekdays - Monday to Friday

This year (2019) we are aiming to reduce the amount and type of plastic packaging we use to dispatch your orders so you may find that your threads and fabrics are now packaged together.
We are moving to using biodegradeable packaging where we have control.

2020 Update - where we have control, all packaging has been reduced, most of it is biodegradeable (some super-large bags are not yet) and we have been discussing packaging options with manufacturers.

I have not received my item
When did you order? Remember, we cannot dispatch at weekends and our default delivery is second class which can take 3-5 days so it is probably on its way

Did you 'Special Order' an item? If you did, we will have ordered it within within 1 working day, but we then have to wait for it to arrive which can take up to 10 days

If it has been more than a week, please doublecheck that your payment was successful - both of our payment providers will have sent you a payment confirmation email which is not the same as the order confirmation email that you receive from Cross Stitch Workshop. If you are unsure, please contact us here Didn't receive a confirmation email? Best to check with us here

Did you order a kit? Although most of our kits are in stock when you order so ready for dispatch, we sometimes have to order more stock if a kit has been particularly popular - these kits usually have an extended delivery date which you can see on the kit description but feel free to contact us here

Did you order a particularly large piece of fabric or one that is an unusual colour? We keep lots of fabric in stock (lots and lots and lots) but the bolt sizes are limited so if we have sold several metres - remember 100 cm is one of our standard sizes - we might be waiting for extra fabric to arrive - this usually takes a couple of days but we upgrade your delivery to first class

If there is going to be a long delay for any reason, we will usually contact you by email so please check your emails including your junk/spam box

If in any doubt, please contact us here
All of our items are tracked so we can check
