Shipping Policies

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, USPS is experiencing delays, particularly for international shipments. Please allow extra time for your package to arrive. If you are concerned about delivery, consider upgrading your shipping to Priority Mail or International Priority Mail. Priority services include further tracking and insurance.

Current Turnaround Time

Currently, we are shipping orders out within 24 hours of purchase, if all items are in stock. If your order will take longer to ship, we will contact you.

Local Delivery Option

If you live in Corvallis and would like your order delivered to your house, please use the Local Pickup option at checkout (change "Ship To" information to choose this). If you have any special instructions for delivery, please let us know, otherwise items will be left at your front door within 24 hours. This is restricted to Corvallis residents only; anyone outside of Corvallis will receive their order via USPS.

Please be sure your shipping address is correct!

General Shipping Info

DOMESTIC:
Packages will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail (delivery in 2-5 business days on average) unless you choose to upgrade to Priority Mail (delivery in 1-3 business days on average) for an additional shipping charge.

Insurance and tracking are included in the cost of Priority Mail.

INTERNATIONAL:
Packages will be shipped via USPS First Class Package International Service (delivery time depends on the destination; please allow up to 4 weeks) unless you choose to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail International (delivery in 6-10 days on average) for an additional shipping charge.

Please note that First Class Package International Service does not include tracking outside of US borders. If you want tracking once your package leaves the US, consider upgrading to Priority Mail International.

****Please note that the buyer is responsible for any customs charges, taxes, and additional postage fees incurred on their packages.****

Because the US Postal Service is a fickle creature, please allow 2 weeks for domestic packages and 6 weeks for international packages. And due to that fickle nature, The Starlight Stitchery cannot take responsibility for packages once they have been mailed. If you are concerned about your package going missing, please consider purchasing postage that includes insurance and/or tracking.
