How can I purchase an item?
  • Firstly you must select an item to purchase after browsing the website.
  • When purchasing items you need to let us know the quantity of the items you are buying.
    To do this you type in the quantity you would like to purchase, in the box where it says Add. You will first need to delete the number out of the add box so that you can type in the number you require.
  • On the left hand side of the page, under the photo of the fabric, there will be a number. This number indicates the amount of the fabric we have on hand. If it says 3 yards in stock it means we are selling the fabric by the yard and we have three yards of it on hand, available for sale. If it says 3 metres in stock it means that we are selling the fabric in metres and we have three metres in stock.
  • Under the Add box (where you type in the quantity required) there will probably be a message that says "min .25 units .25", This means that the minimum quantity you can purchase is .25 of a unit. The unit is the measurement that we were just talking about over on the left hand side of the page, eg .25 of a metre or .25 of a yard, depending on the unit that that particular fabric is sold in. Some of our fabrics are purchased pre-cut, in yards from the US and these are sold in fractions of a yard, and some are purchased on a roll in metres, and therefore are sold in metres.
  • Type in the quantity you need, next to each fabric or item that you would like.
  • When you have finished selecting your fabric or other items on a page, click on the button "add selected products to the cart" (). You need to do this before proceeding to the next page for your further selections. If you go to the next page, when you add to the cart, the first page selection will be lost.
