Terms and Conditions of Sale
As of June 2014 the Distance Selling Regulations have been replaced by the UK Consumer Contract Regulations. The most important details are as outlined below.
All orders placed through the website now use the PayPal service to process your payment. This is completed through the PayPal servers, and as such we are not in direct contact with any of your account information. We do not store any payment details on our servers.
Occasionally we may get a price wrong online or discounts incorrectly applied. We will always try and honour the price displayed, however this may not always be possible. Acceptance of an order contract does not occur until items are shipped. If we are not able to honour the displayed price we will always contact you and ask if you would like to pay the difference or cancel the order.
Cancelling An Order
Your right to cancel starts the moment you place your order and doesn’t end until seven working days from the day after you receive your goods. Goods to be returned must be unused. The cost of returned unwanted goods must be paid by the customer.
Orders for tailor made items, such as personalised blends, may not be cancelled once the blend has been made. However, we will always check to see if we can resell the blend. If we can we may refund payment.
Return of Faulty or Damaged Goods.
Please contact us as soon as the goods arrive if damaged in transit. If a fault is found on unpacking please report this as soon as possible. We will pay for the cost of return and either give a full refund or replacement, depending on your preferences.
Return of Unwanted Goods
If you order incorrect products, or change your mind after seeing them, we will refund payment upon their receipt if they are in good condition.
In this case the customer is liable for the cost of returning the product(s).
Guarantee of Goods
If any item fails to work or appears to not be working or does not meet the description of sale please contact us.
As the retailer we are responsible for the items we sell and will never pass the responsibilty for replacement or repair to the customer or manufacturer. For items less than 12 months old it will be normal practice in the event of failure to replace the item or to give a full refund. Over 12 months old we will consider repair or replacement depending on the individual circumstances. In law it is considered that an item has a working life, depending on what it is and how used. For example a spinning wheel would be expected to have a life of several years. If it fails during this period due to faulty manufacture then you have rights in law for refund or replacement. This does not include wear due to normal usage.
Courses Terms and Conditions
A non returnable deposit of 10% is required at the time of booking. This is detailed on the booking form. If we are able to fill the cancelled place 50% of the deposit will be returned.
The balance is due on completion of the course. In the event of cancellation the person booking will be allowed to transfer the deposit to a booking on an alternative future date. The participant booking a course will not be allowed to transfer their booking to another person.
In the event of us not being able to run the course due to unforeseen circumstances a full refund of the deposit will be made. No additional compensation will be made.
