COVID-19 UPDATE (7/25): YES! We are open and shipping on a daily basis. As of today, we are running at our normal speed of same/next business day shipping. Please note that if unexpected things occur, it may take an extra day to get your order out, but right now we are running as normal and hoping to continue to do so. I am almost caught up on email, if you have not received a response from me from a few weeks ago, please send me a friendly reminder email so that I can get back to you. We are washing our hands, as we always do, and continuing to clean the store on a daily basis which conforms with CDC suggestions. We are healthy and have zero contact with the outside world apart form the package carrier pickups and maintain over a 6 foot distance while working. Thank you for all the orders and supporting my store, it means the world to my business and allows me to stay IN business. Please take care of yourselves and stay healthy and know we are here if you need a little fabric! - Kristina
We happily cut in 1/4 yard increments, continuously. For example 0.25 = 1/4 yard, 0.5 = 1/2 yard and 0.75 = 3/4 yards, 1 = 1 yard, 1.25 = 1 and 1/4 yard; and so forth.
Standard quilt weight cotton is 44 inches wide and varies from 43-45 inches from manufacturer to manufacturer. Generally it is about 44 inches wide including the selvage (edge of the fabric).
Fabric will always be cut continuously. Bolts of fabric generally only have 10-15 yards on them; if you are ordering large cuts of fabric we will always cut continuous whenever possible but it may come in multiple pieces. For example if we have 30 yards in stock and you order 17 yards it will come in two pieces of the biggest piece we have plus the remaining yardage. We will always contact you first if there is any question on how to cut it.
+ What is a yard? +
1 yard is 36 inches long by 44 inches wide (width of fabric).
1/2 yard is 18 inches long by 44 inches wide.
A fat quarter is 18 inches long by 22 inches wide (a half yard cut in half the long way as opposed to a 1/4 yard which is 9 long x 44 inches)
For reference a meter is about 40 inches, so please order up or down for your sewing and crafting needs.
+ Fat Quarters +
We unfortunately are not able to cut custom fat quarters. We do cut fat quarter bundles, which are generally made up of an entire collections or our custom bundles and can be found HERE.
+ Can I Get A Sample? +
We consider 1/4 yard to be a good sample size, which you can order from any of yardage listings.
+ Color, Pattern Size & Material +
The pictures are provided by the manufacturer of the fabrics and are 'true to color'. But all monitors vary in color and so there may be some variation in what is on your screen and what you see in person. If a very specific color is desired we recommend buying a 1/4 yard first and then a larger amount later on. We know buying fabric online can be difficult at times and we try to provide our own pictures which we feel are true to color as well within the listings when possible.
The size of the pattern on the fabric should be in each product listing, along with the fiber content. If there are any questions please contact us we are happy to help!
+ KONA Bundles +
Most of our bundles are cut from the bolt and the manufacturer ribbons/tags may not be included. If this is a deal breaker please inquire prior to purchasing. Bundles are broken down in order to ship cost effectively. If the bundle is from the manufacturer and you'd like it shipped that way please contact us and we can quote shipping prices - they are usually double to triple the cost.
+ Can I Get A Discount +
Prices are as listed. We do offer sales from time to time via our social media networks and newsletter. So please follow along! If you wish to buy wholesale please contact the manufacturers directly.
+ Can I Follow You +
Yes! We have Instagram @fabricbubb, Facebook and Twitter Accounts. We also have Pinterest. And would love to see you there!
+ Do You Have A Newsletter? +
Yes! You can find a link at the bottom of our website or by going to 'about' and then 'newsletter'. You will also be automatically be enrolled in the newsletter with your purchase.

We occasionally will offer preorders of fabric that are likely to be highly desirable and will sell out quickly; thus ensuring that you get the newest released fabric as quickly as possible. We will cut the preorders the day the fabric arrives to our shop and ship it the next (or same) day. However, please note that it is a preorder and not in hand when purchased. Meaning it will ship when we receive it. The estimated fabric release date is noted in the listing but backorders do happen to the manufacturers and sometimes fabric will be delayed getting to us. Please understand that when this happens we are equally as frustrated as you and are doing everything we can do get the fabric in order to get it to you but it is out of our control. Also please note that sometimes when a collection ships we may be missing a bolt or a bolt may come short. While this typically doesn't happen it can happen. We will contact you if this is the case and will ship as soon as we have the fabric to ship.
+ Can I Add To An Order Already Placed? +
Yes! We can happily do that if the order has not already been packed for shipment. It is best to email us and not just put a note at checkout as we cut in order from oldest to newest so often we will cut and pack your first order before even seeing the second order. So please reach out to us if you place more than one order, so we can make a note as we'd love to help make it work for you. If two orders are placed and there is excess shipping a refund will be given via the original payment method, less a $2 processing and administration charge.
+ Can I Ship To A Different Address From My Billing Address +
Yes! If you are buying the fabric but having someone else make something with it, just enter their shipping address at check out. Your order will always be sent to the shipping address.
+ I Placed An Order But My Address Is Wrong +
Contact us immediately! We process orders FAST. And your order may have shipped before you contact us. If this is the case, we are sorry! We will contact you when/if we receive it back. A new shipping fee will unfortunately apply to have it sent to the correct address.
+ My Order Was Refunded, Why? +
We strive to keep our inventory up to date. But sometimes there are bolts that have holes or stains somewhere in the middle of them and we have to cut around them. Or we just get a bolt that is short and we don't find that out till we get to the end. We try to update as soon as we find out there is going to be a problem with what is showing available and what we have on hand but in reality sometimes we aren't as fast as our customers purchasing. So if we cannot fulfill an order we will contact you immediately to offer some options. If we do not receive a timely reply (i.e. within 24-48 hours) we will cancel and refund that portion/yardage of your order. We truly apologize and hope that it never happens!
+ Can I Cancel My Order +
It is best to make sure you want an order before you place it. If a cancellation is desired and the order has been cut but not shipped, there is a 20% restocking fee. If the order has not been cut there is 10% admin and processing fee to cancel.
YES! Please email us to set up an appointment! We would love to meet you! (please note that during the pandemic, for the safety of the owner and employee we have decided to not do appointments at this time, hopefully that will change in 2021)
+ Can I Pick Up My Order, I Live Locally +
In lieu of appointments, we are are offering local pick up in special situations. Please email me us to inquire but know that shipping is preferred at this time to minimize our interaction with others for our health and safety.
+ Exchanges & Returns +
+ Will My Information Ever Be Sold +

By purchasing from us you will automatically be enrolled in our newsletter that is fully managed by us (but hey its great so why not) but you can easily unsubscribe from that. Nothing will ever be shared. Ever.
