Frequently Asked Questions

If you have questions regarding products in my store, or any store policies, I hope that you'll find your answer here. Please contact me if you can't find your answer here.

Privacy Info:

Your privacy is extremely important to me. I will not share, rent, or sell your personal information to anyone outside of Purple Daisies, LLC. Any personally identifiable information shared by you (our customer) with me (Purple Daisies, LLC) will only be used to fulfill orders, contact you about your order if we need to, or send you emails if you give us permission to do so.

Payments:

I accept payments via major credit cards, PayPal, ApplePay, GooglePay, and checks. International checks (banks outside of the US) are not accepted.

Sales & Discounts:

Sale Item = an individual item is available at a temporary, reduced price (look for the pink Sale price/label)
Automatic Discount = available for a limited amount of time and automatically applies a discount to an item or order at checkout (no code required)
Discount Code = available for a limited amount of time and applies a discount to an item or order after it's redeemed by the customer at checkout.

No more than one discount ever applies to any single item (regular or sale price) in an order. If two discounts are applied to the cart, the best discount for your cart will be applied. For example, if there's an automatic discount for "15% off Patterns", but you have a discount code for 20% off your entire order, then the 20% off discount will be applied because it is a better deal for you. The cart will not apply 15% off Patterns plus an additional 20% off.

Discount codes cannot be applied to an order after it has been placed.

Preorder Policy:

Purple Daisies, LLC will make some upcoming fabric collections, pattern, and quilt kits available as a preorder.  These will be available under the menu option: Shop Fabric >> Coming Soon-Preorder. When you place a preorder, you are reserving the item/items by paying at the time of purchase, before Purple Daisies, LLC receives this items in hand.  All preorder items will be shipped immediately after they are received. I (Cristy Fincher) will keep you updated every step of the way, as I receive updates from distributors/manufacturers. The estimated date of arrival/shipping is clearly noted in the listing for each preorder item. There are occasions where a distributor/manufacturer experiences delays or mis-shipments. Please understand that these situations are outside of our control. If, for any reason there is an unexpected issue with your preorder (ie: delays, missing item, etc), I will contact you immediately to make you aware of the situation, and proceed to find a reasonable solution.  Please know that all preorder sales are final.

A:  Yes, I wholesale all of Sharon Schamber's designs and products. Please visit our wholesale information page {here}.  

Product FAQ's:
Q: The disc I purchased isn't "playing".
A:  Please check to make sure the disc is a DVD, and not a CD.  DVDs will play on any TV or computer DVD player.  A CD is a pdf file, which can only be opened via your computer with a program like Adobe Reader.  Click here for a free download of Adobe Reader.

Q: How do I use the freezer paper patterns that come with some CDs/DVDs?
A:  The freezer paper patterns are meant to be used in several ways.  You can use them with a light table to mark your practice piece or quilt top, or with any other marking technique you prefer.  They can also be used as inspiration and/or as a guide as you quilt.  Whether you mark with them or use them as reference, they are meant to support and help you with your quilting.

Q: The rubber on my Quilt Halo cracked, can I exchange it?
A:  As long as it is a defect from manufacturing, we will exchange it.  We have seen Quilt Halos where the crack is a direct result of use and occurs when the quilter bumps the Halo with the screw of the machine's foot.  In these cases, we cannot accept a return.  Please remember to pause your quilting when the Halo gets close to the foot, and move the Halo.

Q: How do I use Sharon's Applique Foundation?
A:  Following Sharon's instructions in her Piece-by-Piece: Machine Applique book, or in one of her patterns will give you the best and most detailed instructions.  For basic instructions see our Applique Info area.

Q: Can I use Sharon’s quilt designs on my own quilt or a customer’s quilt?
A:  Yes, but...  If you will be competing your quilt, in local and state competitions, please give credit to Sharon for the pattern and designs.  As well, please give credit to Sharon for any designs used on a customer’s quilt. Sharon’s designs are copyrighted. If you, or your customer, intend to compete a quilt, that include any of Sharon's designs, in a regional, national or international quilt show, you must seek permission directly from Sharon Schamber.

Downloadables:
Q: How do I download the digitized pattern that I purchased?
A:  Products with a digital download will be delivered automatically to you, via email. A link to your download will be included in your purchase receipt (look for a link that says "Download") as well as in your online account. If you cannot locate the link to download on your receipt, search your inbox for an email from SendOwl Downloads. This is the server that I use for my downloadable files.
