FAQ’S

Any replies that request you email Michelle please contact her at jodyridesigns@gmail.com

 

Q/. How long are your threads?

A/. All our skeins of regular stranded cotton are 6 ply and 8m long the same as DMC and Anchor skeins. This was done purposely so that if you have a skein usage for a chart there will be no difference using our threads.

Perle threads are also standard lengths for the industry. Perle threads are sold by weight we stock #5 which is a 5g skein and approximately 21m, #8 which is a 10g skein and approximately 78m and #12 which is a 5g skein and approximately 62m. Again if you know you need a certain number of skeins/balls of Perle thread for your design you will need the same amount of Jodyri Designs threads. Perle threads are single ply threads.


Q/. How long will my order take?

A/. Although we do keep some stock of threads with 300 different colours (as of May 2017) it is not possible to keep enough quantity of every single thread to cover any possible order and all fabrics are dyed to order. Michelle is the sole dyer and also the only person to cut and prep all fabrics and threads before dyeing and so all orders containing hand dyed items are subject to a 10-15 working day processing time. Working days are Monday - Friday not including UK Public Holidays.

At times there can be further delays for example due to illness or after holidays and this will be in the Announcements section on the front page of the website. If you ever want to check on your order progress please email Michelle.

 

Q/. Are your threads and fabrics colourfast?

A/. Although we try our best to ensure colour fastness we cannot guarantee that our threads and fabrics will not bleed if washed. If you wish to use them in a project that will be washed we recommend rinsing them through with cold water until the water runs clear. We would also suggest those most likely to bleed are those containing Black, Red and Dark Blue.

 

Q/. Can I order a custom thread or fabric colour?

A/. Yes we often make custom threads and fabrics for customers please email Michelle to discuss this. There is no extra charge for a custom dye they will still be the same price as those on the website.

 

Q/. What sizes of fabric do you provide?

A/. Our standard sizes are 9” x 13”, 13” x 18”, 18” x 26” and 26” x 36”. We can offer a custom size if you require it please email Michelle to discuss this.

 

Q/. What types of Monthly Clubs do you have?

A/. We offer a Monthly thread club at two levels 5 threads and 10 threads with the option to add the limited monthly thread to them. We have two different fabric clubs, the first is based on the monthly limited edition and the second is a Year Of either Pastel, Bright or Neutral fabrics with a different fabric in the palette each month you can also add the limited monthly thread to the fabric clubs.


Q/. How do your monthly clubs work?

A/. All the monthly clubs work the same way.

First you sign up via the website to the club/s you wish to join adding the monthly limited edition thread if you wish.

The following month you will be invoiced directly on the first working day of the month.

Please note you may receive an invoice for the next month before the previous months club depending on when you ordered/paid for the previous month and if you are UK or overseas. The invoice can be paid at any time in the calendar month so you can wait until the previous order is received.

The thread clubs work numerically for example July 2017 the 5 thread club will be numbers 1-5 then August 6-10 and the 10 thread club will be numbers 1-10 and August 11-20.

You may alter or cancel your club choices at any time by contacting Michelle.

 

Q/. How much is postage?

A/. We offer a flat rate of postage at £1.50 for the UK and £3.50 for outside the UK irrespective of the size of the order

 

Q/. Do you offer an insured postal service?

A/. We do not do this as standard but are happy to find a price for you and invoice you for the increased cost. If your order is especially large we will send it insured at our own cost.

 

Q/. Why do you not offer free postage?

A/. Unfortunately we are not able to offer free postage as we are a very small home based business and we simply cannot afford it.
