"Fabric Mart, how can I help you?"

We receive a lot of phone calls at Fabric Mart and have noticed our customers have the same questions and concerns. 
To help you we made a list of our most frequently asked questions: 
http://www.impactlearning.com/telephone-etiquette/


1. Why can’t I order swatches of the fabric offered on the Fabric Mart website?
Because we buy relatively small yardages from designers and manufacturers, our fabric sells out very quickly. Therefore, we would not be able to ensure that the fabric you requested would still be available. We try to provide the best description possible of the fabric instead and offer a 100% guarantee if you are not satisfied with the fabric.

2. How is Fabric Mart different from other online stores?
We buy overstocks from manufacturers and designers. This allows us to keep costs down on great apparel fabric.

3. Can I add to my order after it is placed?
This is discouraged due to how quickly the fabric moves. Adding to your order will delay your processing and may result in items no longer being available.

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 original order in the package for proper credit.

5. What is a mystery bundle?
A mystery bundle is a 10-yard assortment of beautiful fabric remnants, many being end-of-bolt pieces from our website. This is a fun and exciting offer! However you do not have the option to choose what color, print, or fabric you will receive. Bundles are not available all the time as we must accumulate remnants to create these bundles.

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. The “maybe later” list and your shopping cart will not hold your quantity.

8. Why do “sold outs” occur?
We try our best to keep our inventory as accurate as possible. We not only have a website but also a brick and mortar retail store. Our local customers are welcome to shop our website inventory. Sometimes we do not have a chance to update our inventory from store purchases quickly enough. Other factors could include flawed fabric, or fabric that came in small pieces instead of one continuous piece. If you would like to be notified of sold out fabric on your order, please check the toggle on the checkout section.
If you still have a question that is not listed here about our online website, placing your order, or a recent purchase, please ask. 

You may call as at 1 800 242 3695 during our office hours of Monday-Friday 8-5pm EST
If you are not able to call during those hours, please email our customer service desk at chris@fabricmartfabrics.com

  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.

Made By A Fabricista: Completing My Handmade Cruise Capsule

I was lucky to go on a weekend cruise to the Bahamas with my husband! For the occasion, and for this April post, I initially planned on doing two versions of the Wanda Wrap Dress: a colorful sleeveless one for daytime excursions and a darker mid-sleeved one for nighttime outings. Thankfully, I did the black one first and realized I preferred to sew something else with the other fabric. Why? Indeed, the dress is very comfortable to wear. It is flowy, elegant and a good option for day or night, depending on the chosen fabric. But, with its six panels full skirt, its faux-wrap top, and its extended waistband, this dress took almost two yards of fabric to make, even in a small size! With this jersey knit elastic fabric, it ended up being bulky and heavy to pack. Knowing I am used to traveling with very minimal luggage (backpack forever!), bulkiness and weight do not work for me. I will wear this in Miami, but it won’t travel much with me in the future.  Also, making the Wanda Dress wasn’t

Made By A Fabricista: Spring Ahead

Happy Spring!  We have finally made it into my favorite season which happens to also be my birthday season.  I feel like the New Year really starts in the spring season as everything comes back alive, and we all feel refreshed. So, for this post I created two separate looks to encompass my spring vibes. This first look I dared myself to create a look using two different prints.  I don’t work with prints often, but I had been really inspired lately by fellow Fabricista Marcia (keechiibstyle) who just has a magical way with mixing her prints. For this I used two different print jersey knits of 2yds each and McCall’s Pattern M8238 which allows for easy color blocking but in this case print mixing.  The fabric requirements call for a 2 way stretch but this knit worked just fine for the pattern. I love the contrast between the two prints.  This is the perfect spring style but can also but transitioned into summer as well. I did view C which had a high slit in the center.  Initially I planne

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Brunch looks just in time for Mother’s Day

Happy First Friday of May! I am truly excited that I have 22 more work days left before the summer break.  This school year has been a roller coaster ride and I have enjoyed some high moments and dealt with some low ones in between.  I wanted to start my summer looks early and decided to focus on looks I can wear when I visit Jamaica or other tropical places. These looks made are both great for Sunday brunch as well. This set is my first faux romper for this year and I love the fact that I can rock it as separates. When I came across this yellow graphite gray polyester fabric , I knew it was perfect for summer.  To top it off, I found the perfect matching earring from Purple Paradise Studio in lime (Rise stud in lime) and knew I wanted a chic summer faux romper set.  I decided to hack  McCalls 7943 dress pattern and create another top.  I have made it several times as I truly love it and plan to use this pattern as one of the beginner patterns for my summer sewing class. I have made it
