I have had numerous enquiries over the past few weeks since my epiphanous discovery of Oakshott shot cottons about how to buy Oakshott if you are not in the UK. To start with, you can buy from their website. Anyone outside the European Union will get the 20% value added tax deducted at the till (a deduction of 16.6% of amount you see on the website) because you are not paying our taxes. To the US, there is then a £13.50 delivery charge and the shot cottons tend to arrive within a very few days. So for any orders over £67.50, the tax deduction effectively pays the shipping for you. Shipping to Canada, Australia, NZ, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong is £15 and to Brazil is £20.
pinwheels and a verb for keeping warm and Oakshott are hoping to increase that as more quilters around the world discover their shot cottons. If you want to read more about these cottons, take a look at some what Rita, Chawne, Marianne, Elizabeth and a verb for keeping warm are saying about them.
