At 6pm on Friday 23rd of October Wales will re-enter a national lockdown! This will initially be for 2 weeks but is subject to change as with everything to do with COVID.
All non essential businesses are being asked to close I.e clothing shops, hair dressers, beauty salons, etc and work from home where possible is key. Post offices are to remain open but ours have restricted working hours. As such I will be posting on Tuesdays and Fridays only currently.
I am seeking guidance on where I stand with local deliveries! So please keep checking back for more information on this.

As many of you will be aware things are not improving on the COVID-19 Front. Currently Rhondda Cynon Taff remains in local lockdown and the chances of another national lockdown are increasing.
At the moment I'm facing delays in fabric deliveries and other materials, currently I'm on a 2-7 working day turn around (this doesn't include Saturdays or Sundays). I am constantly re-assessing my lead times based on material availability as well as the local situation.
Should we enter another national lockdown I may be forced to use a courier collection & delivery service, as I have at risk family members in my household. If there is a mileage restriction put in place I will also need to seek further advice for local deliveries from the council.
Again depending on the overall situation I may need to change my last posting dates for Christmas. I don't want anyone to be disappointed, so I will adjust accordingly to try and ensure I do everything within my power to get orders out in time for Christmas.
Please note that once I have handed over the parcels to the delivery provider it is beyond my control. I will be unable to make guarantees on their service, or speed it up.
16th September 2020:
Things are still running behind with some postal services, international orders are still very much affected by delays. Rhondda Cynon Taff will be entering a local lockdown at 18:00 (BST) on Thursday 17th September, this is my county.
Due to these delays I am trying to prioritise orders for birthdays/special events within the next few weeks. After all no one wants a birthday tshirt after their birthday! Christmas orders are starting to come in and I am doing my best to get these posted within 7-14 working days, this is subject to change depending on volume of orders and any further restrictions due to COVID-19.
I will only be posting a couple of times a week, so if you need your order urgently please get in touch before ordering to make sure I can meet your needs.
I’m aware that due to COVID-19 postmen & women are currently signing for deliveries. Most of my items are able to fit through a standard letter box, however, for larger orders please consider having someone available to take delivery.
