Frequently Asked Questions
How long before I get my Treasure?
Because all of my items are made to order, you will need to allow 6-8 weeks for your item to be crafted for you. This may seem like a long time, but I believe it will be worth the wait!
If your item will not be completed in the 6-8 week time frame, I will notify you.
However, the good news is that if I complete your item sooner than the estimated time, I will ship it to you right away. This also applies if I happen to have your item already available in my limited stock-on-hand.
Standard Stain Colors We Use:
Golden Oak – Light Cherry - Red Oak - Dark Walnut
Do you have a color in mind other than the 4 standard colors we use?
I can accommodate any color you choose:
1. Go to your local hardware store (Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, OSH)
2. Choose the stain color you want
3. Write down the manufacturer, color name and color number
4. Contact me with the item you want to order and the stain information
5. I will purchase enough to stain your item and add this cost to your final price.
What kind of finish do you use?
The Quilt Racks and Ladders are each sealed with at least 3 coats of polyurethane. In-between coats they are lightly sanded with steel wool to make them smooth as silk.
The smoothness will prevent your quilt from getting snagged, and the multiple coats of polyurethane will prevent any transfer of the stain onto your beautiful work of art.
Shipping & Packaging Information & Personal Delivery:
All items are shipped via USPS or Fed-Ex and are insured for their full value.
Generally, we use USPS flat rate for our smaller items and Fed-ex for our Quilt Racks and Ladders.
Please allow 7-10 business days for your item to be delivered once it is shipped.
If you live within a reasonable distance of Manteca (35 miles or less),
I will gladly deliver your item (or multiple items) to you for a
single charge of $.50 per mile to cover gas and my time.
Anything beyond 35 miles and it will be cheaper for you to have it shipped.
California Sales Tax will be charged for all items shipped to a California address or purchased at a California Show. Local Taxes may also apply.
You can custom order any of the items in a wood other than pine, such as walnut, maple, oak, cherry or poplar. I will research the availability of the wood,
the cost to make the item, and provide you with a customized quote.
You can also contact me if you would like to change any of the dimensions of the quilt racks or ladders (narrower or wider, with more or less rungs, etc).
The cost to customize an item for you is usually the same or only slightly higher than what is listed, so please don't hesitate to email me with your particular needs.
