More Frequently- Asked Questions

Q: What if I receive two orders for one item?

A: This rarely happens, but we add a "Sale Pending" to quilts in the process of being sold. However, if more than one purchase request is received, the sale goes to the first customer to request and pay for the purchase. Sellers should keep all inquiries. If the first sale fails, a quilt can be offered to the next in line. Once a quilt has been sold, the Seller must inform Quilts for Sale immediately and inform everyone who made inquiries about it. They can be encouraged to look over the Seller's other quilts or, the Seller may wish to arrange to make a similar quilt for the client.

Q: What about taxes, State, Federal, Provincial, etc.?

A: Sellers are responsible for any applicable taxes as designated by their State or Province/Territory and finding out if they pertain to their situations (registered business or hobby business).

Q: What about textile label requirements?

A: Quilters are responsible for looking into the requirements required for their areas, if needed.
