Making purchases

We aim to offer our customers a diverse range of products that they will love with all relevant information about products provided up front for customers to make an informed choice. If there is anything that customers want clarification on then they can make email an enquiry to [email protected].

While we strive to ensure high quality images of all our products, it can be difficult to get colours to accurately represent how they will appear in real life. Therefore it is not recommended to use the images on the website to colour match. Customers are asked to contact us for help and advice when trying to colour match products.

All prices are shown in Pounds Sterling.

When you select products you wish to purchase they will be added to your shopping cart. If you wish to delete any items or edit quantities this can be carried out at the checkout stage. When you are ready to pay you will be directed to the Paypal payment gateway.  

Once we receive your order we will send you an order confirmation email. This will indicate that a contract has now been formed between us, the supplier and you, the customer.

Purchasing fabric

All fabric is measured and cut using the metric system and is sold by the half meter unless otherwise stated, for example a fat quarter pack, charm pack or jelly roll. To order one full metre of fabric select 2 quantities, for two full metres of fabric select 4 quantities and so on.

Multiple quantities will be cut continuously.

Pre-washing fabric

Pre-washing fabric is really a personal choice but we do recommend pre-washing on a warm, short and gentle cycle with a mild detergent especially if the fabric is a bright or dark colour or if there is any linen content in your fabric. If you are combining several different types of fabric in the same project then it is defiantly worth prewashing. Felt and fabrics with any wool content should be washed as per manufacturers instructions. Please note that we cannot accept responsibility for any fabric shrinkage. Please take into consideration the possibility that fabrics can shrink when measuring up for projects.

Please note that you must be 18 years of age or older to purchase rotary cutters or scissors. By accepting our terms and conditions when you purchase our scissors or rotary cutters you are confirming that you are of the legal age to purchase these products.
