You will receive a confirmation e-mail to indicate that your order has been received. If there is a problem in processing your order or any items you have ordered are currently out of stock, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss the situation.
If you contact us regarding your purchase in advance we can send you a digital invoice that will allow you to complete payment once we advise we can ship your order.

FLOOR LOOM PURCHASES
The price we quote you is valid for a period of 8 weeks unless otherwise stated. To place a floor loom order we require a minimum 10% non-refundable deposit with the total balance to be paid before the loom is shipped. Alternatively you can pay the full amount at the time of placing the order and we are also able to split payment up to 3 instalments. The full balance has to be paid before the loom can be shipped to you. For floor loom orders final payment should be made by direct bank transfer (BACS) if possible. For confirmed orders we will send you an email invoice that contains details of all the items ordered, total prices and instructions on how to make a BACS secure payment. Alternatively, card payment can be accepted. If you wish to make payment by debit or credit card then please let us know and we will send you a link to a secure payment page on our online store. Unfortunately we are unable to accept PayPal for floor loom purchases.
Delivery timescales: We will need confirmation with the factory what the current timescales are for shipping your loom. As the looms are made in batches there are periods when we have to wait for production to be completed before orders can be fulfilled. Please note that floor loom delivery may take up to 14 weeks, but can also be quicker than this if orders are placed part way through or at the end of a production run. If delivery is delayed due to factors beyond our control for a period of 22 weeks or more then we will offer you the option of cancelling your order and will refund all payments made by you up until that point, including the 10% deposit.
If for any reason you are not happy with your order please contact Weft Blown in the first instance to discuss the matter and so that a resolution can be sought. We strive to provide you with the highest quality equipment and will work with our suppliers to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
