Fabric Sizes

All fabric is cut from the bolt. The minimum order is 25 cms (quarter of a metre), with increments of 5 cms thereafter.  Some fabrics may have a higher minimum cut due to a pattern repeat e.g. 60 cms. You will need to specify the quantity of fabric you wish to order in centimetres in the Quantity Field. For a half metre of fabric you need to order 50 cms, for 1 metre you need to order 100 cms, etc.

There are a few exceptions where the fabric is sold in specified repeats or lengths. This is done so you receive a full design. 

Fabric Width

Fabric widths vary depending on the individual fabric and the manufacturer. The fabric width is given in the fabric description.

Minimum Cut of Fabric

The smallest cut we offer is 25 centimetres. This will be cut as a fat quarter, i.e. 50 cms x half the width of the fabric unless requested otherwise on ordering.


Prices are given by the metre. When you place fabric in your shopping cart it will automatically calculate the price of the fabric for you based on the length of the fabric you have ordered. All prices include GST.


We try to represent the colours of the fabrics as accurately as possible through the images on the website, however, they may appear slightly differently on different computer screens.
For most of our fabrics we are able to offer a small swatch to New Zealand customers to assist with colour matching.


We are happy to send up to 5 small colour swatches to our New Zealand customers. To organise colour swatches please send a message via the contact us button with the details of the swatches you would like, your address and contact details.
