How to keep your bobbins shiny: the finest product you can use is the natural oil from your hands.  Therefore our best recommendation is that you use them often and they will always look like they did on the day you received them.   High quality HARDWOOD: our bobbins are not coated or varnished.   The wood is polished to its natural high sheen: the hallmark of excellent hardwood.   The types and sections of wood are selected for their durability and other characteristics: resistance to termites and other infestations.   Their high density permits finishing the bobbins without varnish or stain.  Not a single endangered tree has been destroyed for their manufacture.   PRICES and order information:  we will only charge (or process) your credit card at the time we are shipping your order.  The cost each is the listed price at time of processing minus the discounts at that time.  Prices and discounts are subject to change without notice.  The Lacemaking Circle DISCOUNTS may change daily.  The ORDER information you are sending uses a secure website and your Credit Card information will be encoded.  By using our online order system you agree with the conditions stated in this statement.  PRIVACY: Your name and information will not be sold or exchanged with any other company. COPYRIGHT: the Lace Magazine international, the bobbins and all images are copyrighted 1982/2005 by L&A, Palo Alto,  CA, USA. All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be duplicated in any form, even electronically, without the express written agreement of L&A. RETURN POLICY: If you are not completely happy, return your bobbins within 15 days in the same condition by USPS insured Priority Mail and we will promptly send you a refund check for the full amount (minus the original mailing and insurance cost). We even enclose a return label with your bobbin order. Sales of cut items are final. Return check fee $15 in addition to  bank fees. No returns on items sold at "Special Price". TRACKING: you will be able to track each order on line with a tracking number. We are only responsible for shipping your order.  Proof of shipping will be send  at your request.
