I did get a response from Style Arc. Now to order - but what a price for postage!! Ouch!
Any idea how I can obtain a promo coupon code? That might reduce the burden of the postage.
LOL..... I know what you mean.
We Aussies get burnt by postage all the time. Unfortunately it is the price of Worldwide business. I have purchased fabric from EmmaOneSock, Gorgeous Fabrics, Sawyer Brooks, Vogue Fabrics, Denver fabrics and it costs an arm and a leg to get the fabric down under..... Strangely enough Fabric.com is not as expensive.. maybe it is where they are situated in the US??? But with Fabric.com it still cost about $25 for my average order and I have paid almost $100 with some of the others at times. With the patterns, it is rarely less than $20 for postage as you have to buy a few to justify the postage.
And yet - I still buy a lot from overseas as the actual cost of the patterns is so expensive here (about $18 - $25 each for Butterick etc and about $30 for Vogues) .... let's not get started on fabric. I would love to buy more fabric from OS ---- see drool marks on my laptop all the time ---- but can't afford the postage.
