Standard Ground orders take up to 3 business days (Mon.-Fri.) to process in our warehouse. If an order is placed on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, it will ship out within 3 business days the following week. You will receive an email once your order ships or if any status changes. Please allow up to 4 business days (Mon.-Fri.) to receive a shipping communication email or a status change update. While the order is processing at our warehouse, the status doesn't change and will remain "In Progress". Orders containing fabric that is cut by the yard, may take on the higher end of our processing time. Items shipping direct from the manufacturer will take additional processing time and ship separate from the remainder of your order.
Orders are accepted with the understanding that stock is available. In some cases, limited availability may prevent us from shipping the quantity you requested, but we will do our best to fulfill your complete order.

Q: Why was an item on my order canceled and will I be charged?
A: While we do our best to fulfill all of our orders, occasionally we have to cancel an item on an order due to availability. You will receive a separate email letting you know about this cancellation and your credit card will not be charged. When originally placing the order, we placed an authorization on your credit card or PayPal account allows Joann.com to make sure the account is valid and has the necessary funds available to process your order. An authorization is a pending charge or hold on a payment account and is not a true charge. Your payment method will not charged if we did not ship your order. The release of an authorization may also appear as a refund on a credit card statement, or the authorization may be deleted from the account entirely. The void may take 7 business days (or longer, depending on your bank) to appear.
Q: Why did my order come in multiple boxes or from multiple carriers?
A: We may ship your order to you in multiple boxes or via multiple carriers due to:
- The order size — large orders often are split into multiple boxes for more efficient delivery.
- The item's size — some items required special handling and packaging and thus a separate box.
- The item's source — some items will come to you directly from the manufacturer.
