How many yards do I need?
Use our yardage converter chart below: Look at your pattern envelope, simply put your finger on the number of yards and width it calls for (ie, If your fabric is 45″ wide, you will need 3 1/8 yards for your size) and then slide your finger in straight horizontal line to get the yardage you need for a different width. So in our example above, if the fabric you love is 60″ wide, you will need 2 3/8 yards for your pattern. PLEASE NOTE: Not all patterns can be converted – some require a certain width or they won’t work. Check your pattern carefully before ordering.
I only need 2.5 yards, can I buy in smaller increments than 1 yard?
Unfortunately, at this time our system is only set up for 1 yard increments – this also helps us keep our prices lower for you! There are lots of ideas online of projects to make with your remnants.
I want to make sure my fabric is continuous yardage!
Don’t worry!! Unlike other online fabric stores, we are seamstresses ourselves, so we understand how important this is. All orders of more than one yard are cut as continuous yardage. In the event that there is a flaw in the bolt or the bolt is short (or long), we will make every attempt to contact you and see how you want to proceed rather than just making assumptions as other stores do. (So be sure to check your email or phone messages!)
Some of my fabric has a cut edge and some is torn, what did you do?!
Where we deem it possible, we tear the fabric so you can be sure the grainline runs true. For fabrics that cannot be torn, we do our best to cut along the grain.
