UNDELIVERABLE PACKAGES
If you suspect your order cannot be delivered as addressed and you have not received confirmation of its return or refund after 4 weeks from the estimated delivery date, please contact us by email.

WHY WAS MY PACKAGE UNDELIVERABLE?
Couriers may deem a package undeliverable for one of the following reasons:

INCORRECT ADDRESS.
If the address is incorrect or outdated, the package is typically returned to us by the carrier or the
unintended recipient. Please double-check your address carefully when placing a new order. We will only be able to deliver to established home/business addresses.

CARRIER DOES NOT DELIVER TO THE ADDRESS.
The courier service may not deliver to some addresses. In any case it will be necessary to
resolve these issues with your delivery service.

FAILED DELIVERY ATTEMPTS.
Most courier services make three attempts to deliver a package. If the business address
designated is not open during business hours and able to accept your delivery, and the driver
cannot locate a secure drop point for it, he or she may make up to two additional attempts to
deliver your goods. We are not responsible if your designated business address was closed
during any of these delivery attempts during business hours and, as a result, the delivery service
returns the package to us as undeliverable. In such cases, an additional fee will apply to reship
your goods. If you choose to cancel your order after such an instance of non-delivery, we will
deduct the original shipping fee from your refund, as well as any additional applicable restocking
charges. Courier fees may apply for all repeated delivery attempts and return delivery service.

RETURNS AND REFUND POLICY

REFUNDS: Because we are very careful to accurately describe our goods, and in most cases the
buyer has had ample opportunity to examine the title and determine its appropriateness for their
use, returns will be accepted and complete refunds given only under very specific circumstances.
REFUNDS AND RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR BOOKS OR CD’S

DAMAGED DELIVERIES
All damages must be reported to Southlands Fabric and Sewing Centre within three (3) working days upon delivery. Failure to report any damages will release Southlands Fabric and Sewing Centre from any and all claims. It is the responsibility of the customers receiving personnel to check all shipping cartons for discrepancies (e.g., dents, punctures). All discrepancies to the shipping package should be noted on the carriers paperwork and documented. If, after opening the package, it is found that there is damage to the product, the carton is to be examined to determine that the damage was due to shipping.   Failure to examine cartons at delivery, and signing the carrier's paperwork, releases the carrier and Southlands Fabric and Sewing Centre from any and all freight claims.

LOST SHIPMENTS:
In the event an item shipment is lost, we will not refund until the post office or delivery service
completes its lost incident investigation. We assist clients in filing a lost-mail/insurance claim with
the post office or the delivery service and we will require the buyer's cooperation in
completing the paperwork and assisting in the claim process.

OTHER REASONS
Prior approval must be obtained for any products being returned.
All products, if accepted for return, other than damage, are subject to a 5% restocking fee and
must be shipped prepaid. The customer is responsible for properly packaging and returning the product in reusable condition. If not, additional charges may
be added to the restocking fee. If a customer holds a product for more than ten (10) days, a
return for credit will be voided.
All products being returned under such conditions shall be prepaid (unless they are being
returned due to damage), packaged in good condition and shipped to:
