Shipping and Sales Tax:

  • Shipping for Applique Patterns is $2.60 for the first item, and $.75 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.
  • 7.375% Sales Tax will be added for MN residents
  • PLEASE MAKE ANY CHECKS OUT TO MARY MITTELSTADT or MITTELSTADT ARTWORKS.  DesignAndBeMary is strictly the name of the website, not the formal business name.
  • At this time, 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.

Wholesale Inquires:

Wholesale inquiries are welcome. Wholesale pricing – along with payment information – will be sent upon inquiry. Please be advised that you may be asked to provide evidence of your wholesale status.
