conformity of goodsaccuracy of images
We work very hard to ensure that the product photographs on this website are accurate representations. However, we must point out that the image you see on your computer monitor or mobile device may vary slightly in colour or tone from that seen on someone else's due to variations in computer hardware and software such as the colour, contrast and brightness settings on your screen or the ambient light in the place you are viewing it.
cutting of fabric
Images representing a fat quarter or a fabric panel show a typical sample. We cannot guarantee that every fat quarter will be cut in exactly the same place as the sample photographed. Similarly, when a panel is a pattern repeat cut from a continuous length of fabric we cannot guarantee that the top and bottom of the cut piece will be in exactly the same place as the photographed example.
disclaimers, indemnitycontent and information
All content and information published on this website is provided in good faith and, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate and correct. However, we accept no liability for any use of that content or information, legal or otherwise, by any person and we disclaim all responsibility for the consequences of any such use.
All goods are supplied in good faith to be used for their intended purpose and we accept no liability for the consequences of any use or mis-use.
goods not supplied
We endeavour to offer only products that we have in stock but, from time to time, a website order may be placed for an out of stock item. In these circumstances, before the order is processed, the customer will be contacted and offered an alternative product, a refund for the value of the out of stock item or the option to cancel the entire order.
By placing an order on this website you, the customer, are making an offer to Quiltessential to purchase the advertised products at the listed price and give Quiltessential authority to despatch those products and take payment from your credit/debit card.
When you conclude your order you will be required to submit your credit/debit card details and contact information via a secure server. Payment will be debited automatically from your payment card at this time and you will receive an e-mail from Quiltessential confirming receipt of your order. This e-mail is an acknowledgement that we have received your order: it does not confirm our acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer when we conclude the contract of sale by despatching the product(s) to you. At this time we will send you an e-mail to confirm that we have despatched the goods.
Quiltessential reserve the right to decline your offer to purchase goods from us without giving a reason. In these circumstances we will notify you by email of our decision to decline your order and any payment already taken from your credit/debit card will be refunded to the same card within 7 days of receipt of the order.
Quiltessential accept no liability for any consequential loss that the customer may suffer due to delays in shipping or should, for any reason, the ordered goods not be despatched.
14 day returns and cancellation policy
If you have any problems with an order please contact us and we will try to help.
If you change your mind about your purchase you may cancel the order and return the goods to us provided you comply with the conditions stated below and you do this within 14 days of receiving the goods. You do not have to give a reason for returning the goods but you must notify us in writing, during this 14 day period, of your intention to do this. You can notify us by post or by completing and submitting our online form.
Please include your contact details in any communications, including email address and telephone number together with details of your order and what items you intend to return. We will contact you to acknowledge receipt of your notification.
If you return goods, you are responsible for the full cost of returning them to Quiltessential. It is your responsibility to ensure that they are returned with adequate packaging and postage. Quiltessential accepts no liability for returned goods that do not reach us because they have inadequate postage or because they are 'lost in the post'. We therefore recommend you obtain 'proof of posting' and ensure the postage method you use includes adequate compensation for non-delivery.
Goods must be returned to us unused and in a good, re-saleable condition. We will only refund the value of the goods we receive back in a re-saleable condition plus the charge we made to despatch those goods to you.
Fabric and wadding is cut from large pieces specifically for your order. We do not therefore accept the return of these items unless we have made an error in processing your order and despatched the wrong item.
Once the goods have been received and inspected we will make a refund credit, as quickly as possible, to the same payment card account you used to pay for the purchase. We aim to process the credit within 14 days but have no control over the time it will take the card processing company to transfer the money back to your payment card account.
We do not accept returns of patterns.
If any item we despatch is defective or if we inadvertently send you the wrong item you may return these specific items to us unused and in good condition and we will send you a replacement and refund reasonable return postage/shipping costs provided you notify us in writing within 14 days of receipt of the goods. If we are unable to replace the goods we will refund the purchase price plus reasonable return postage/shipping costs.
To notify us of your order cancellation via our website, please use our contact form.
duty, taxes and VAT
All prices on the website include the applicable rate of UK VAT (sales tax). Our UK VAT Registration number is: 893110824.
All goods are supplied directly from our UK premises.
We do not send goods outside of the UK.
We aim to despatch orders within 48 hours of receipt. Orders up to 1000g will be sent using Royal Mail First Class Post. Orders weighing more than 1000g may be sent as 2 parcels and, to keep postage costs as low as possible, Orders weighing over 1000g will be sent either by Royal Mail Second Class post or with a reputable courier.
We calculate our postage and packing costs based on the weight of your order. You will find, therefore, that adding more items to the shopping cart will not necessarily increase the shipping cost if the total weight of the order remains within the same postage weight band.
The shopping cart will automatically calculate the cost of postage and packing and add this to your invoice for orders up to 3kg. For weights in excess of this, the shopping cart will not be able to calculate the shipping cost. In these circumstances, we will calculate the shipping costs manually and confirm them to you before processing your order.
We are obliged to charge VAT on the postage & packing and the prices shown in the tables below include VAT.
If the full order cannot be fulfilled because an item is out of stock, shipping costs will be adjusted accordingly.
Please note that Royal Mail do not accept that a package is lost unless it remains undelivered 10 working days after posting, We are therefore unable to attend to missing deliveries until this period has ended. If your goods do not arrive within 14 calendar days of placing your order please notify us.
The table below indicates the price bands for different weights of package:
|Weight||Cost £ (GBP)|
|Up to 100 g||£2.00 (approx 2 patterns or 0.5m fabric)|
|Up to 250 g||£2.25 (approx 1.25m of fabric)|
|Up to 360 g||£2.90 (approx 2m of fabric)|
|Up to 1,000 g||£4.70 (approx 5m of fabric)|
|Up to 2,000 g||£5.00|
|Up to 3,000 g||£10.00|
|Over 3,000 g||Orders weighing more than 3kg will exclude shipping costs. The shipping cost will be established and the customer will be contacted prior to preparing the goods for despatch so that the shipping costs can be paid.|
