Final Stock Check

Why is a final stock check required?

To offer maximum availability some fabric is shipped from the manufacturer so we need to check that it is in stock. We check availability and then organise a direct shipment to you.

What happens if the fabric is out of stock?

In the rare event that the fabric is out of stock we will contact you within 24 hours at which point you will be informed when it will be delivered.

You will be given the choice of waiting or cancelling the order and receiving a full refund.

Cancelling the Order

You may cancel your order if:

  1. We contact you and inform you that there will be a delay in fulfilling your order and you do not wish to wait.
  2. For Online Orders you MUST contact us before 2:00 pm on the day of ordering. Please call the shop on 01202 479695.


After this time your order shipment will have been booked and may well have been cut, packed and shipped and therefore it cannot be cancelled or refunded.

We highly recommend that you order a sample before committing to purchase larger amounts (samples are available for most fabrics).
