Is everything you stock on your website?
No, we have lots of other products in store. If you are looking for something in particular, please contact us and we tell you if we stock it. Equally if you are looking for a bigger quantity than what is listed online, please contact us and more than likely we will have a bigger quantity in store.
What are the fabrics suitable for?
Nearly all fabrics are 100% cotton and are suitable for clothing, bags, quilting, and craft work such as appliqué, lightweight upholstery and lightweight decor.
What is a Fat Quarter?
A fat quarter, sometimes referred to as an FQ, is the measurement we use to sell fabric in our shop. It is half a metre of fabric cut in half again, creating a square of fabric approx 50cm x 55cm. The reason we sell in fat quarters is because historically it was a measurement adopted by quilters. They found it a more versatile cut than a ‘long quarter’, where a metre (or yard) would be cut only lengthways.
If you require more than one FQ then we will leave your fabric uncut. For details of measurements see below...
Number of FQ’s
50 x 55 cm
50 x 110 cm
75 x 110 cm
100 x 110 cm
125 x 110 cm
150 x 110 cm
175 x 110 cm
200 x 110 cm
If you would like your fabric cut differently just put your requirements in the 'notes about your order' box when checking out and we’ll happily supply it as you wish.
Do you send out samples of fabrics?
Yes, we can send you samples. Just send us an email with your name, address and which samples you would like and we can pop them in the post.
How can I be sure that the fabric I buy will be the same colour as on your website?
We display the colour of our products as accurately as possible but precise colour depends on your monitor settings. You are able to return fabric and receive a refund if you are in any way unhappy with your purchase. Our pictures are either taken in natural light or taken from manufactures to make sure the representation is at its best.
Do you sell fabric by the yard?
No we only sell in metric units, we start at ¼ metre units so it should be possible to get the requirements that you need. If you are unsure just
get in touch with us and we will try and solve your problem.
