We are changing the order process for Cheema Gear.

The online order form has been temporarily removed from the web site. 

The new order form will be available in the next 2 weeks with NEW Cheema gear to replace items that have been discontinued.  A few items will be back by popular demand. 

This new order process will effect the times of year that orders can be placed.  

PLEASE NOTE: We will have THREE order dates a year, if you want items for Christmas, Florida or early spring you will need to place your order on the NOVEMBER Order Date, we will have a 2nd order date in late APRIL and the 3rd order date for late JULY so it is back in time for Nationals.  The actual dates will be announced when the order form and art work are released

Payment and sizing options will stay the same, you will still be able to pay/try on samples for your order with your credit card or cash by calling or dropping by Tall Ships.  

Please contact laurelleanelson@hotmail.com if you have any questions.
