FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Do you offer fabric and trim swatches?

Fabric and trim swatches are available for purchase on our website. Prices start at $1.75 each. Sample orders ship free (U.S. 48 contiguous states only).

Unfortunately, samples are not available for all fabrics. However, we want to do all we can to get you the fabric you want. Most fabrics that don't have samples are available in one yard cuts. If you want to order a yard of a fabric that is not sampled, we will refund the cost of that yard when you place and order of five yards or more. Since we refund at the time of purchase you will need to contact us for instructions either at support@buyfabrics.com or by phone at 877-625-2889.Swatches ship via USPS First Class Letter usually within two to four days or less of the date they are ordered. Most swatches are approximately two inches by seven inches or about the size of a dollar bill. Please keep in mind that swatch sizes may vary depending on the size of the pattern and the value of the fabric.

Although we cannot guarantee every product's availability, we work very hard to exceed your expectations on every order. Every product is meticulously inspected for defects prior to shipping.

Am I ensured receipt of every item on my order?

It is important to us to ship you a complete order, and that's why we keep a running account of our inventory. In the unlikely event that our inventory is in error and we cannot ship a complete order, we will contact you for instructions prior to shipping. We do NOT guarantee product availability or quantity. Please feel free to call our toll free number (1-877-625-2889) to check the availability of a fabric or trim.

Will my fabric be shipped in one continuous piece?

We make every effort to ship your fabric in one piece. However, yardage is limited by bolt size. Most fabrics we carry generally come to us in 30-yard bolts and are then sold down. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that we will have the yardage you desire in one continuous piece. If we cannot provide the fabric in one continuous piece, we will contact you for instructions before processing your order.
