ALL SHIPPING RATES ARE FOR THE UNITED STATES ONLY.  I CURRENTLY AM NOT SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY. If you are an international customer and would like to purchase a pattern, I suggest you try the shops listed below.

Please check the Resources page for various information on materials, techniques, and links.

Shipping and Sales Tax:

  • Shipping for Applique Patterns is $3.95 for the first item, and $.65 for each additional pattern included in the order
  • Orders ship USPS with Delivery Confirmation
  • Kits vary in size and weight so shipping costs vary. Rest assured I try to be as economical as possible in configuring shipping costs: some kits will ship via USPS standard post while others may ship in a priority flat rate box.
  • Current Sales Tax will be added for MN residents
  • PLEASE MAKE ANY CHECKS OUT TO MARY MITTELSTADT .  DesignAndBeMary is strictly the name of the website, not the formal business name.  Any check made out to DesignAndBeMary will be returned to the sender as they cannot be cashed

PLEASE NOTE that due to the nature of the items I sell, there are NO RETURNS  except if the item is not as described on the site.
