Shipping & Refunds


Fabric Godmother aims to pack and dispatch your order within a 1-2 working days of it being placed, providing payment has gone through. Although it may take longer during busier times, such as during or just after promotions.

You will receive a confirmation email when you order is placed and when your order is dispatched. Please check your junk/trash folders if you’re unable to see ‘order confirmation’ or ‘order dispatched’ emails in your inbox.

If for any reason, there is likely to be a delay in dispatching your order, such as stock availability, Fabric Godmother will notify you by e-mail.

With the most recent Covid-19 lockdown some of our staff are only working part time due to childcare responsibilities and some of our staff are working from home, this means there may be a slight delay with sending your order out or responding to your enquiries.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Leaving Parcels in a Safe Place

If you choose to instruct the mail carrier to leave your parcel in a safe place such as a shed or porch please note that this is at you own risk as we cannot claim for items that go missing that are not securely delivered.

International delivery rates and information.

All international orders are sent via Royal Mail Business tracked or DHL courier tracked.

Please note: All international orders require a working phone number and valid email address to be entered when the order is placed. This is so the courier/postal companies can send you tracking numbers and can contact you to ensure a speedy and accurate delivery. We will have to email you to obtain a phone number if one isn’t entered when the order is placed.

Sadly, we have had to raise the International shipping charges due to a huge increase from all providers as a result of Covid-19 and Brexit that we cannot fully absorb.

If your delivery address is a non-residential European address, please enter an EORI number in customer notes when placing your order. Without this there may be considerable delays.

International delivery rates can vary – especially for very large orders. We’ll notify you of any changes in the delivery cost before the order is dispatched, and there is then the opportunity to cancel the order should you wish to.  

There may also be additional import duties or customs charges levied in your country – these can sometimes affect delivery times and overall costs. Please check with your local authority for up to date information regarding import taxes and duties.

Please note: We may sometimes send your order in more than once parcel to reduce the cost of postage.
