Last Ordering Dates for Christmas 2018

Little Conkers Last Posting Dates
Here are my current last ordering dates for delivery by Christmas 2018.

If you order by the date given below for your country/region, I will guarantee to have your item(s) in the post by the Royal Mail’s last recommended posting date for Christmas. Delivery time is not, however, guaranteed and they don’t always manage it, so please don’t leave ordering till the last possible moment!

If you have your eye on something, please check back, as things will change!

If I get busy, I may have to move the dates below forward, and you risk being disappointed if you haven’t placed your order.

If a fixed delivery date is really important to you, please contact me and we can look into a guaranteed service.

Please always read my full Terms and Conditions.

Last Ordering Dates for Christmas 2016

Don’t forget, I can always ship directly to your recipient to save time, and can include gift wrapping on certain items.

If you order after the last posting date for your country/region, or are not ordering for Christmas, that’s absolutely fine, please place your order as normal. I will continue to process your order in the usual timescales, but note that I will not be posting any items between 17th and 28th December inclusive, and the Royal Mail’s delivery schedule will be affected by Christmas and New Year Bank Holidays.


Digital Items

You can continue to download my digital crochet patterns through the holidays from all the usual places:

However, please note that if you have a question about a pattern or any other query, I will not be able to answer your questions whilst I’m offline between 17th-21st December and 24th-26th December.
