Shipping suspended

As of today, France is in lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

In order to minimize all risks, and not put a strain on postal services in the current situation, I am suspending all shipping of physical products.

This is a difficult and unprecedented situation, causing much anxiety. These past few days, I have found solace by knitting and crocheting while listening to podcasts and watching videos on fiber arts.

I’m planning to prepare some educational and hopefully entertaining content in the coming days and weeks. I will probably increase the publication frequency of my newsletter, to help those of you who so desire to take part in this. Feel free to subscribe to the newsletter (click here) to stay informed.

I will also continue to publish patterns. Pattern downloads continue to work as usual!

Take really good care of yourself and your loved ones.

Shipping dates December 2019

Shipping of physical products will be suspended from the 21st December 2019 to the 2nd January 2020. To have your products shipped before the Christmas holidays, you will need to place your order at the latest on the 19th December 2019 at noon (Paris time), so I can ship it on the 20th.

Postal services generally take longer than usual in December. Also, please be aware that a strike movement will take place in France from the 5th December and for an unlimited time, which may cause additional delays.

Unfortunately, for personal reasons, I also must suspend shipping from the 2nd to the 13th of December. I am truly sorry for this. I explain the reasons behind this decision in my latest podcast in English, linked below.

Pdf patterns are of course available via download 24/7 as usual. For gift-giving, please consider the gift vouchers available in the shop, also delivered as pdf’s.

Thank you for your understanding – I wish you a lovely December month!

New international shipping option

I am very happy to be able to offer a new, much more affordable international shipping option: Delivengo.

This option is available for shipping outside France up to 2 kg. It will work for most yarn orders, but might not be available for heavy books.

As always, I apply a standard shipping fee to your orders, so you know beforehand how much shipping will cost. For shipping with Delivengo, this fee is:

– 7.80€ for destinations within the EU (outside France)
– 8.50€ for Switzerland and countries outside the EU

If you have any questions regarding shipping and shipping fees, feel free to send me an email.

Delivengo is trackable, but the packet will be left in your mailbox or at your door, without signature. If you want a delivery with signature, please choose La Poste (French postal services).
