To protect the copyright and hard work of designers: Digital items are not eligible for return, refund, or exchange. You accept and understand this policy by placing your order for such an item.

Any product you return, must be in the same condition you received it and in the original packaging.

NOTE on Free Shipping Orders: If you received our Free Shipping offer and then wish to return part of your order, please note that your order will be adjusted for the items you are keeping with a shipping charge added according to our shipping chart. After an order with Free Shipping has shipped, and the customer then makes a decision to return the entire order, the refund will reflect a deduction for the cost of shipping the original order.

The original shipping fee is not refundable. Return shipping costs wil be at customer expense unless the order/item being returned was sent in error or damaged.

Unless an item is received in damaged condition and reported to Sew Thankful prior to return...OR unless it has a manufacturer defect, the returned item(s) must be received in new re-sellable condition, including the original packaging, to receive a full refund of the product purchase price.  Pantographs are not eligible for return if it has been removed from the plastic packaging.  We have had these returned in the past and when unrolling found damage to the pantograph.  If a pantograph is returned and it has been removed and then reinserted in the plastic packaging the customers refund will be reduced for our cost on the pantograph as it cannot be resold.

Sew Thankful is not responsible for damage that may occur in the return shipping of items. If your order has fragile items or has a high dollar value, we suggest that your purchase postal insurance for your return package.

Eligible refunds will be made in the same format as the original payment and only to the person that made the original order. This means that credit card refunds will be issued to the same credit card used for the purchase. Paypal refunds will be issued to the same Paypal account used to place the order.

After an order has shipped, if a customer decides to "REFUSE" the shipment being made by the Post Office, the customer will only be refunded for the total of the merchandise in the order. (once we receive the order back through the Post Office.) The original shipping fee is not refundable in this case unless it has been determined that Sew Thankful made an error in the order.


We do not offer exchanges. If you would like a different product, you can return the the unwanted item per the return policy. Then you can place a new order through our website.
