"Fabric Mart, how can I help you?"

Did you know that if you call us during regular business hours you will always be greeted by a person on the other end? No voicemails, a real, live person ready to help you! 

We receive a lot of the same questions and thought it would be a good idea to answer some of them for you!

1. Why can’t I order swatches of the fabric offered on the Fabric Mart website?
Because we buy deadstock fabric from manufacturers and designers, we cannot guarantee that the fabric will be available once your receive the sample. We try our best to provide quality photos and descriptions to help you decide on the best fabric for your project. 

2. How is Fabric Mart different from other online stores?
We pride ourselves on offering quality fashion fabric at discounted prices, but we also price ourselves for our customer service! If you call during normal business hours, you will always be greeted by a live person. No voicemails, or pre-recorded messages! 

3. Can I add to my order after it is placed?
We do let customers add to their order as long as the order has not already shipped. During times of high volume orders, we do not allow adding or combining of orders. We post this on our site for your information. 

4. Can I return my fabric?
We accept returns on uncut, unwashed fabrics. We have a 30-day return policy and we do not refund shipping. If you wish to return any item, please enclose a copy of your invoice in the package for proper credit. Once we receive your order, we will refund your payment method. 

5. What is a mystery bundle?
We offer a number of different bundles. Our most popular is the 10-yard Fashion Fabric Bundle, which includes an assortment of beautiful fabric remnants. We also offer a few other bundles, depending on stock of remnants such as, wool bundle, silk bundle, Craft Bundle and more. Check out our site for the current selection. 

6. Why does my fabric come in a surprisingly labeled box that does not pertain to Fabric Mart?
Fabric Mart uses clean, new, recycled boxes. Not only is this good for the environment, but it allows us to keep our shipping costs low!

7. Sometimes items are removed from my shopping cart before I place my order. Why?
Yardage is pulled out of inventory when an order is placed and paid for. Occasionally another customer may buy the last of that item while you are still shopping. We know this can be frustrating, so we recommend finishing your order in one sitting to avoid missing out on the fabrics you selected. Items in your wish list and your shopping cart will not hold your quantity.

8. Why do “sold outs” occur in my order?
We try our best to keep our inventory as accurate as possible but yardage is a lot different than single items picked from a shelf. Fabric stretches, our cuts are fairly generous and sometimes we may run into flaws or multiple small pieces on a few bolts. All in all, our customers are happy with their orders and do not receive sold outs too often, but it is something that could happen.

If you still have a question that is not listed here, don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Dept: 610-678-1330 or email

Our office and retail store are open Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm ET.

Thank you for being a loyal customer! 


  1. I love the $8 flat shipping! It is always good to look at a total cost of a purchase versus focusing on just the shipping.

  2. This is really helpful. Thank you for sharing this with your customers.

  3. Good job with the whole post. Thank you so much for sharing the same.

Made By A Fabricista: Date Night looks for Valentine's Day

Happy New Year! I am excited to be back blogging in 2023 with Fabric Mart.  Over the past few weeks, I spent quite some time reflecting on what truly brings me joy and a personalized form of self-care. Sewing was on the top of the list and I truly enjoy making my own clothing.  During the winter break, I wanted to create some basic looks that I can jazz up for a wedding or rock on date night.  When I read Johanna’s  blogpost and came across the Vogue 1835 pattern that she made last month, I saw endless possibilities with the pattern.  I knew it was perfect to hack to make a mini, midi or maxi dress and a staple pattern to have. My original plan with the lycra foil printed knit ( here ) fabric was to make a formal infinity wrap dress that I saw on instagram.  I will be attending a formal event later this month and felt it was perfect. Knowing that I would only wear the infinity wrap dress once or twice per year, I decided to make separates that I can dress up or down and maximize the w

Made by a Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Marty - Let's Make Some Activewear!

Do you ever see a fabric, and it reminds you of a fabric in your stash, so you just have to combine the two and like... annoy the world? Now I'm not saying that these colors are horrible together, but I definitely feel like a high visibility vest while wearing them. The neon orange and hot pink are just that striking of a combination. And I still can't get over the pocket detail I did on the color-blocked pair. Along with everyone else I set a New Years goal to be more healthy. To improve my relationship with food, my body, and the world around me. And these leggings bring me so much joy. Not, go run a marathon in July joy. But maybe some Yoga and outdoor adventures in August kind of joy. From beginning to end, figuring out these legging patterns has been a lot of fun. Before this, it had been almost a decade since I had worked this seriously with knit, and I think I need to do more, to be honest. I apologize for the awkward photos. I just finished a cross-country move and am s

Made by a Fabricista: Youtube Edition | Dee & Dory

YouTuber's Dee & Dory are back on the Fabric Mart blog today with their most recent Fabricista Makes. Make sure to click play on the video below to hear all about their fabric choices & how their projects turned out! Dee Simplicity 9189 was the pattern used for the wonderful ponte knit of polyester lycra.  This is a medium weight fabric, perfect weight for cooler weather wear or layering when it is colder.  The fabric sews up easily and there were no issues with working with this fabric.  It also launders well. I used cool water and in the dryer a medium temperature.   Wrinkles were not an issue.   A great choice if you need a medium weight stretch fabric for a garment.   This fabric can be dressed up or down, looking chic with a pair of jeans or a topper for a dress. Do be careful though if the pattern calls for the reverse side showing, as the wrong side of this fabric is white! Dory I found this ITY Knit 58” wide perfect for Kwik Sew 3873.  It’s such a flowy fabric, 4 wa
