Our site features very detailed information on every fabric we carry. Weight,
stretch, care instructions, and numerous, large, full-color pictures let you
know exactly what you're getting. In fact, you'll probably find yourself knowing
much more about the fabric you purchase through our site, compared to what
you would find out by asking a representative in a store. Check out the screenshot
on the right to see what we mean, or just view one of the fabric product pages for yourself.
For all its benefits, however, buying fabric online does have two downsides.
First is that you can't feel the fabric. That's why we offer 5 free swatches to our new customers, and 5 more every time you place an order! Just create an account, select your swatches, and
checkout. They'll arrive by postal mail in a few days - it couldn't be easier.
The second issue is getting the fabric quickly. With a store you can walk out
with it the moment you buy it, and of course we can't match that. But we can do
the next best thing. All in-stock orders ordered and received into our system before 12pm PST, are shipped the same day. Plus, we ship
all orders via FedEx, who is the fastest and most reliable shipper in the
business. Customers tell us all the time that
were shocked to receive their fabric in mere days, or even the very next day,
after placing a purchase. And since you can use your own account number, you can earn even greater savings from whatever discounts you might earn!
The checkout process is 100% encrypted with SSL (secure sockets layer). Your
order is stored in our secure database, built by our world-class engineering
team who has secured databases for major corporations, banks, and the government.
There is no safer way to shop online. (Of course if you'd prefer to order by
phone, we're happy to take your order during business
We are completely committed to your privacy and do not share your information
with anyone. Period.
Ok, so shopping is totally safe - but what if you don't like the fabric after
receiving it? We provide tons of information and great photos for every
fabric, but sometimes it's just not what you were expecting. No problem! Our
generous return policy lets you return for an exchange
or a complete refund. How can we offer this, you might wonder? Well, we have
very few returns - everyone always loves their fabric! :)
But don't take our word for it. We served tens of thousands of happy customers
in just last year alone. Check out what they've
had to say about us.
