Fabric Bundles and Fabric Lengths
Are fat quarters the same as 1/4 metre cuts?
No, fat quarters are different to 1/4 metre cuts. A 1/4 metre piece is a 25cm x WOF (width of fabric - usually 110cm for quilting cottons) cut, whereas a fat quarter is a 1/4 segment of a metre of fabric. To cut a fat quarter, we first make a half metre cut, then cut that piece in half. Our fat quarters typically measure 50cm (along the selvedge) x 55cm.
Can I order continuous cuts?
Of course! Most of our fabric lengths are sold per 1/2 metre and any quantities ordered greater than 1 are cut as one continuous cut. If you require a metre, the quantity you will enter is 2; if you require 2 metres, the quantity you will enter is 4 and so on.
Can I make a custom bundle?
Yes please! We LOVE playing with different fabrics and colours to create beautiful bundles. If you see something that you sort of like but would like to update it a bit to suit you better, please let us know and we will be more than happy to help.
Do you offer swatches?
If you live in Australia, we are happy to send you a scrap of fabric free of charge through regular mail. Unfortunately we cannot offer this service if you live outside of Australia due to high postage costs.
Are the colours in the stock images and listing photos true to life?
We do our very best to ensure that you know what you are receiving! We do use stock images by default, however if we believe that the stock image does not reflect the true colour of the fabric, we will take our own picture to more accurately represent the actual colour of the fabric and include this in the listing photos.
Please note that different screens and electronic devices may show colours differently and we therefore cannot guarantee a perfect match.
Do you offer custom quilts?
Yes! We would be absolutely delighted to make a custom quilt for you. Please have a read through our Custom Quilt information page to get started!
Can you recreate a quilt that has already been sold?
We will certainly do our best! A lot of the fabrics in the quilts that we sell are from our personal stash, which has grown over a number of years. Some of these fabrics may no longer be available to purchase, or may be a rare find and/or only available to purchase from outside of Australia. This may increase the overall cost compared to the original quilt that you may have seen.
If any fabrics are no longer available or are unattainable, we will work with you to find suitable alternatives to recreate the quilt as best as possible.
Do you offer paper patterns?
No, we do not offer paper patterns at present. All of our quilt patterns are available as a PDF download only.
What payments do you accept?
We accept payments through PayPal, as well as Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Shop Pay.
We do not currently have any lay-by or multiple payment options, but please do get in touch with us if you would like to discuss this.
All prices are set in Australian dollars (AUD). The Stitch Saloon is not responsible for any exchange rate differences.
Is GST (goods and services tax) charged on my order?
Yes, GST is collected on Australian orders.
Will I be charged duty or customs taxes?
If you are purchasing from outside Australia, you may be charged a customs, duty or tax fee. Any customs, duties or taxes are the responsibility of the customer. We cannot control whether a package gets delayed and/or charged duties and taxes by the customs office in any international country. All prices are set in Australian dollars (AUD).
