"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: A Wardrobe Staple for Spring - A Denim Coat

Hello Sewing Friends! It’s Sharon with Sharon Sews with my latest Fabricista make – a denim coat  for spring.  Denim is a wardrobe staple for many of us, and even more so this year with denim on denim looks coming back in style.  The denim I used is a medium weight cotton/lycra blend with about a 20% stretch selvage to selvage.  Fabric Mart always does an amazing job photographing and describing their fabrics, yet I still gasped in delight when I opened the package containing my denim.  It was even better than I had anticipated. This fabric would have worked well for a traditional denim jacket – one with button front closure, chest pockets with flaps, and a collar.   However, I have wanted to sew this open front coat with kimono inspired sleeves and big patch pockets since February 2021.  I saw it in that month’s  BurdaStyle Magazine, bookmarked the page, and promptly forgot about the coat.  It’s coat #105 if you’re interested in sewing one for yourself. Fortunately, I went on an organ

Made by a Fabricista: Revving up your style in the Dana Marie Moto Jacket

Hey friends - I am so excited to have been invited to participate as a Fabric Mart Fabricista this month!  This year is the year I challenge my sewing skills.   I have wanted a moto jacket for some time.  Not just any moto jacket but one that has a classic and timeless style. I saw the Dana Marie Moto Jacket pattern on the Fabric Mart website and knew that was the one.  The fabric I used was a beautiful porcelain white/black/silver 100% polyester plaid weave boucle suiting.    Remember when I said I wanted to challenge my sewing skills?  😉 This fabric was beautiful but fragile to work with.  It was a great mental challenge that had me problem solving before sewing to avoid any potential problems.  I first traced out the pattern onto tissue paper to determine the fit.   I used scrap cotton fabric to sew up a “practice run” of the jacket.    I was pleasantly surprised at how easily the jacket comes together.   I sewed up the muslin in one evening.  It was time to cut into the beautifu

Made By A Fabricista: My Version of the Infamous DVF Wrap Dress

Just in case you are not aware, the iconic Diane Fustenberg wrap dress has turned 50 this year.  In celebration, Vogue has re-released the DVF Wrap Dress pattern, which now comes in extended sizes.  This dress is so classic and fits many different body types.  I got a hold of this pattern and decided this would be my birthday dress this year. This pattern is categorized as a Very Easy Vogue pattern, and I would have to agree with that. Wrap dresses are usually relatively simple to put together since there aren’t that many pattern pieces to sew together. I made View A in a size 22 and the only modification I made was to shorten the hem by 6 inches.  I will say that since I used a Ponte Knit , I could have gone down to a size 20.  I didn’t read the fabric suggestions before picking my fabric.  I’ve always remembered seeing the DVF Wrap dress in knits. After reviewing the fabric suggestions, they do say that you can use soft fabrics, like a Challis or a Chambray. As I mentioned, I’ve alwa
