We sell our fabrics in quarter metres

We sell our fabric in quarter metres, this means that if you’d like half a metre (50cm) then select ‘2’ in the quantity box, if you’d like ¾ of a metre (75cm) then select ‘3’ and if you’d like 1 metre select ‘4’ and so on…

If you select ‘1’ for either our Quilting or Crafting fabrics, then we’ll cut you a fat quarter which is 50cm deep x half the width of the fabric. If you’d like your fabric cutting in a long or thin quarter (25cm x full width of the fabric) then simply make a note in the comments box at the checkout.

If you select ‘1’ on a dressmaking then we’ll cut you a long or thin quarter, which will be 25cm deep x the width of the fabric.

If you have any questions or there is a specific amount of fabric you are after then call 01455 698034 or email hello@thesewingcafe.co.uk

I can't find my cart...

On some mobile devices it can be tricky to access your cart - if you turn you phone on it's side, in a landscape position, then the basket should appear. Otherwise add an item to your basket, then you'll be able to access and edit your basket, removing the item you've just added.
