Some of you have noticed that patterns are “100 lbs.” This is done for programing reasons; meaning to have the program be able to read when an order reaches three patterns. The shipping charges will be dropped once a quantity of three patterns are reached. Shipping charges are based on the amount of patterns ordered; not the weight of the patterns.
