Cancellation of Order and Returns Policy

As a consumer, and in line with the Distance Selling Directive (DSD) you have the right to cancel your contract with us and receive a refund.  You must inform us of this decision within 7 days from receipt of your goods.  The goods must not be opened nor used and must be ‘as new’ when returned to us.
 
You have 28 days to return the goods to us at your own expense and ensure the goods are well packed and adequately insured during any return journey that you organise.  Once goods have been received at Cross Stitch Heaven we will issue a full refund for the cost of the goods to your original payment method, please note this refund will be less any postage costs incurred by us.
 
This policy does have some limitations, such as special orders.  If the products have been opened you will automatically be deducted 20% of the products retail value from your refund amount.
 
If your goods are faulty on arrival, you have 28 days to inform us of the fault.  When the goods have been returned to us and the fault has been verified, we will issue a full refund to you via your original payment method, or replacement item if available.  For all electrical items we will send the product to the relevant distributor for evaluation first.  This is to prove the fault is due to product failure rather than misuse or abuse.
