If a fabric is sold out, will you be restocking it?


We would like to offer a rotating selection of fabrics, but we will be restocking our most popular basics. If you would like to know when fabric has been restocked or new inventory is on it's way, sign up for our newsletter.




Do I have to follow the care instructions you provide?


Our care instructions come from the manufacturer and should not be ignored (i.e. don’t place wool in a dryer, it will shrink!). If you plan to ignore the care instructions and go rogue we highly recommend washing and drying a test swatch first. Treat your fabric the way you would a store bought garment (i.e. Dry clean silks & woolens and wash most cottons, rayons and knits).
