This pre-order item will begin shipping in September after the 8/28-8/30 Needlework Expo. Exact Shipping Date(s) TBD depending on the contents of your order- it may take anywhere from 3 days to 3+ weeks to ship after the event. Any non-pre-order items in your order will be held and shipped altogether at that time. Please reach out if you have any questions before placing your order. If you place multiple August Expo pre-orders, I will try to combine and refund shipping fees as much as possible. Thanks!
Designer's note: Created to celebrate (and respectfully poke a little at!) the quirky genius of Benjamin Franklin. Did you know he didn’t want the bald eagle to be the national bird? He wanted it to be the turkey! And he considered the letters C, J, Q, W, X, and Y to be unnecessary, and he wrote his own version of the alphabet without them! But he provided some significant contributions and special wisdom to our world.

Orders are typically shipped within 2 business days unless otherwise specified in the shop announcements or item description. If your order contains any pre-order items, your order will be held until all items are ready to ship. Consider placing separate orders if you would like to receive your in-stock items sooner. Multiple orders will be shipped together whenever possible and any shipping overages will be refunded to you.
