How to Use ByAnnie's Website
Whether you’re a first-time buyer, or a long time customer, we want to make sure you feel comfortable navigating through our website, and that you’re aware of all the great features it has to offer. Watch our tutorial video above, or keep reading below for some of the highlights to set yourself up for success!
Set Up an Account
Although you don’t have to have an account to shop on ByAnnie.com, there are some great benefits to setting one up - here are just a few:
- Faster and easier checkout! Having an account allows you to store your shipping and billing information for faster and easier checkout the next time you shop. You will also be able to look up a detailed history of previous orders placed while you were logged in.
*Please note that ByAnnie.com is a secure, encrypted website. No personal information is ever shared with a third party, so you can feel confident that you’re shopping safely!
- Access to your Digital Library! The digital library is a place where you can save all the PDF patterns you’ve purchased, access the free patterns you’ve downloaded, view an array of helpful tutorial videos and where you’ll find any add-on videos that you’ve purchased. If you’re not familiar with add-on videos, they’re a new feature for our latest patterns! In them, Annie walks you through some of the more challenging aspects of the pattern, so they’re a nice resource for helping you through your project!
- Keep a wish list! If you see something you want, but aren’t quite ready to buy, click the little heart icon under the “Add to Cart” button to save it to your Wish List. Then, at a later date, you can go back and find the items you’ve saved by clicking “Wish List” at the bottom of the page! This saves you the hassle of having to search for all those great items again in the future!
ByAnnie is dedicated to supporting local quilt shops, and we recommend that everyone shops locally when possible! Do you own a store or business? Make sure to sign up for a wholesale account!
