FAQ Page

As stated in previous sections; Our inventory comes from a wide variety of different sources & seldom comes with any information about weights, washing, content, etc. That being said, we cannot guarantee how the fabrics will do when they have been washed. It is important to note that Cotton, Linen, Rayon, Bamboo, Wool, & all other natural fiber fabrics will always shrink some, whereas polyester’s & other synthetic fabrics will not. The best course of action would be to test a piece, wash with like colors, use cold water, etc. (basic common sense.) A good tip if you are concerned about the color bleeding, toss a bit of vinegar in with your fabric. It will help set the color.

Due to very high shipping rates, our site isn’t currently set up to ship internationally. That being said, if you live outside the US we will happily ship to you. If you are interested in purchasing some of our fabrics, please send us an email that includes the following information:

  1. A list of the SKU #’s
  2. The quantity for each fabric
  3. The email you use for PayPal

Once we receive this info we will create a invoice (via PayPal) & send it to you. After the invoice is paid we will cut, package, & ship your order out.

We ship USPS & use the Priority & Flat Rate options as much as possible. Your invoice will include a shipping estimate, but if shipping ends up costing less we will refund the difference back to your PayPal account.

You can redeem these points before you place an order anytime.

All of our fabrics have a weight listed, but it is just a very rough estimate. We get our fabrics from a wide variety of sources & most of the time they don’t come in with any information. We will cut a yard of one or two fabrics in a category, weigh them, & use that as a guide for the rest of the category.

For example:

  • 1 yard of Linen weighs approximately 6 oz
  • 1 yard of Wool weighs approximately 30 oz
  • 1 yard of Chiffon weighs approximately 3 oz

Weight information is found under the “Additional Information Tab” under the description.

We understand that purchasing fabric online can be quite a challenge & we are more than happy send swatches of the fabrics we have online. If you request less than 5 different swatches, there is no charge. Any additional swatches we will have to charge $5 for shipping, & our time. Some fabrics like to hide from us, so it may take some time to track them down. 😉

Please email the SKU#(s) of the fabrics you are interested in & of course your address.

Most line-good items are reorder-able, such as select colors of our solid Poly/Cotton, Gabardine, Gauze, 2-Tone Chiffon, & solid Charmuse & Bridal Satin.

Unfortunately, the majority of our inventory is “Promotional” or “Close-out,” so we are unable to reorder many of the fabrics we carry. If you see something you like, you should act quickly & order it, because once its gone, its gone.

The good news is that we are receiving other new items all the time & we do our best to update the site as often as we can, so you have access to all of the good stuff.

WHY ARE SOME OF YOUR PRICES DIFFERENT ONLINE AND IN-STORE?

TheFabricMarket will always try to provide the best possible value to our customers, but because of the different natures of a brick-and-mortar retail store and an online store (ie: shipping), we will have different pricing on some of our products.
