Ordering & Shipping Questions
Linda Carr is the owner of The Catnip Cafe and she hand-makes every order. You can read more about her in the “about” section of this website.
Taking into account that every order is handmade, you’ll usually receive your package within 7-10 days (toy & quilt orders will often be sent sooner). Also, Linda sews on a first come first serve basis and will notify you when she’s finished your order and ready to ship it. *December is a VERY busy month for Linda, so please be sure to place your order well in advance of the holiday season!
If we don’t have enough fabric to make a large order, we’ll notify you as to how long it will take to re-order it and if it is available. If it’s a fabric that is impossible to get, we can work with you to find something that is similar.
