Lots of wonderful things in there that I will definitely put on my holiday wish list! Can I make a plea for left-handed instruments in the future? I don’t know how difficult they are to source, but I would snatch up left-handed pinking shears in a heartbeat.

Very impressed, so much work and thought must have gone into this. All the alternatives for the Cooper!

Colette team, you guys have hit it out of the ballpark with the shop and the new patterns! Brilliant brilliant! I want everything…

The Cooper kit sold out before I got home from work, will it be restocked???


November 12, 2013 #

They were limited edition and we are not planning on restocking at this time. We will have a resource list for Cooper materials on tomorrow’s blog post.

Where can I find how much shipping is and about how long what I purchase should take to reach me? I live right outside of DC and would like to know before I place an order.

Shipping cost is calculated just before you place your order. Shipping is about a week for US customers, and could take 2-3 weeks for others.

Awesome! Thank you.

Wonderful choices! I was so glad to see some pattern drafting tools included in the goodies! One thing very high on my wish list would be the very large sheets of carbon paper used for transferring markings. I’ve looked and looked but only found a couple of sites that sell them in bulk, which is too expensive for me, not to mention how long it would take to use them up … Any chance that you folks might buy some in bulk and sell them a couple sheets at a time? That would be just wonderful and I’ll bet many of us would be thrilled to see them offered. Anyway, thanks for the thoughtful choices, they’re much appreciated.

I have looked and looked, and I can’t fint any terms and conditions listed in your shop, no FAQ, no return policy, nothing. Very unlike the Colette pattern shop…. So I’ll ask here: Do you ship globally and if so, what courier do you use? Will you be adding a customer service page to the shop with the info mentioned above? Or have I simply overlooked it?

The shipping and ordering information is pretty much the same as the CP shop. We ship anywhere, and we use USPS, which usually passes it off for local delivery.
