Do I have to buy fabric by the metre?

Although we price per metre, in store you can buy from 10cm up to whatever you would like (as long as we have it in stock). We will also cut fat quarters of any of our quilting fabrics. Online we are switching over to a new system to make it easier to buy fabric. Previously we sold all fabric by specific increments but eventually we will have all fabrics available with a minimum cut of 20cm with 5cm increments and of course you will still be able to buy Fat Quarters of our quilting fabrics at no extra charge.

Can I get free samples?

We’re afraid we do not give out free samples but you can buy small amounts of fabric.

Do you have upholstery and curtaining fabrics?

We have a few canvas type fabrics and cotton curtaining fabrics but we are by no means a soft furnishings fabric shop. We do not stock massive amounts of upholstery trim or foam either.

If I order online, can I collect from your store?

Yes. However, as with online orders, you will need to wait until you’re notified that your order is ready for collection. Local collection orders will not necessarily be processed any quicker as we just deal with all orders in the order in which they arrive.
