Fabric Sizes

All fabric is cut from the bolt. We sell by the whole or part metre in 0.25 metre increments, that is 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1 metre, 1.25 metres etc. You will need to specify the quantity of fabric you wish to order in the Quantity field.

There are a few exceptions were the fabric is sold in specified repeats or lengths. This is done so you receive a full design. For example Owls Nesting by Saffron Craig is sold by 0.62 metre increments.

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 a 0.25 metres. 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 and by the increment size 0.25. 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 do sell some of our fabrics wholesale to manufacturers and retailers (

). If you are not a wholesaler or retailer but wish to buy fabric in bulk (10 metres or more) we are happy to discuss a discount with you. Please contact us regarding your purchase.


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.
