Orders and Returns
We package your order in flat rate envelopes and boxes. If you'd like us to wrap your order in plastic prior to shipping, please let us know by email when you place your order.
If you order one quarter yard of fabric, it will come to you as a FAT quarter (approx 18" x 22"). If you want a regular quarter yard cut from the bolt (9" x 45") please let us know by email after you place your order.

*We may need to charge more for shipping if we can't fit it into the packaging that you've paid for. In this rare occurrence, we will make contact with you and discuss the options.
We do not offer express mail. Our post office picks up from our location, and because we are on the West Coast, it misses the cut off times at the airport to ship overnight. We ship Priority mail on all orders, so you should receive within 2-3 business days if there are no customer service issues with your order.
Shipping & Handling (International)
International Customers - please read!
International shipments are sent via Priority Flat Rate through the United States Post Office. Our site calculates the shipping/handling fee based on the dollar amount you have in your shopping cart. So if you have 9 yards of regular priced fabric it could be $103.50, it is much higher than 9 yards of sale fabric which could be $26.91 - therefore it is difficult for us to determine your shipping costs. We can generally fit 9-11 yards of flat (not flannel) fabric into one flat rate shipping envelope. Because we don't know if you are buying regular priced or sale fabric we base our shipping algorithm on a lower priced fabric. We always try to fit it into the cheapest flat rate that we can, and we ALWAYS refund the difference in shipping back to you.
We want you to get the most for your shipping dollar. Please email us and we are happy to add to your order if it fits. The International flat rate envelopes have a maximum weight of 4 pounds, so we do need to stay below that weight limit. Our shopping cart does not capture your credit card information so we are unable to charge more to your order to add something.
You can order up to 10-11 yards and have the shipping go up to the higher amount and email us and let us know that you only want it to ship in one envelope and we will work with you to take items out or change quantities to make it work for you.
If our site does not calculate enough shipping/handling we will notify you and ask if you'd like to remove items, or if you'd like to pay more for shipping. We will email you an invoice for additional shipping charges if they apply. Sometimes we don't know how much shipping will costs until an order is actually cut and packaged. We will estimate high for the invoicing, and if we can get it into fewer flat rate envelopes/boxes we will refund the difference.
International customers are responsible for any additional customs fees or taxes if applicable in their country. Please do not ask us to be dishonest on customs forms. We put the value you pay for actual goods on the form (minus shipping costs). We will not mark it "gift" as there are monies exchanged, and we value our integrity.
You have a choice of how you order with us. You can order online securily through our website in two ways. You can create an account so you can track your purchases from us, or you can checkout as a guest. We've added a payment gateway so you can pay directly with your credit card, or if you prefer, you can pay via Paypal by logging into your Paypal account. And like always, you can always phone your order to us during normal business hours.
We use Facebook to promote our company. If you have Facebook please "Like" our facebook site. We often give coupon codes or specials to our Facebook customers.
If you would prefer to receive a sample before purchasing your fabric, we would like to offer that we do sell fat quarters or regular quarter yards cut off the bolt. Samples are only offered for fabrics that have the option of a quarter yard sales. (IE: no samples on sale fabrics). If you'd like a sliver off the bolt for a color match, we'd be happy to do this, but we do charge a shipping/handling fee for this. The price is $1.50 for shipping/handling (domestic), $5.00 shipping/handling (international), and $.50 per sample of fabric. Remember these are slivers cut off the bolt .25" in width. Please email with the style numbers you'd like, then we'll email you a paypal invoice to pay.
Please also remember that if you are asking for a sample, it probably means you are needing a larger quantity of the fabric, please tell us how much you will need because there is no reason to check color if we don't have the quantity requested and it is not re-orderable. Most newer fabrics are re-orderable, but when a mill prints, they only print x quantity, and when it is gone it is gone! It is the nature of the business!
We hope you are 100% satisfied with our products and service. If you have an issue please email us and we would be happy to work with you to find a solution. No packages will be refunded without a Return Authorization Number. Refunds (if necessary) will be issued once items are returned to us. Refunds will not be given for shipping & handling charges, and in the event there was free shipping, the shipping costs will be backed out of the refund. Patterns and books may not be returned because of copyright laws. All returns must be in original condition and packaging. Returns that have a smoke odor will not be refunded.
