Frequently Asked Questions

How do I place an online order?

There are two ways you can place orders online, either as a Guest or through your established Universal Sewing Supply account.

  1. To place an online order as a guest, visit the website and browse the available products and add them to your cart, review your order, and proceed to checkout as a Guest. You'll typically need to provide your contact information, delivery or pickup preferences, and payment (which is by Credit Card for “Guest” orders.)

  2. If you are a current Universal Sewing Supply Web customer there is a LOG IN screen for you to access your account.

  3. Any Item Number that begins with the letter “V” (EX: V20568-1296) is a NON-STOCKED/SPECIAL ORDER ITEM WHICH IS NON-CANCELABLE AND NON-RETURNABLE.  This message is noted on each “V” item within our online assortment.
