FAQs

Can I have a swatch of the fabric?

We have a swatch service, to allow you to check the colour and feel of fabric. We charge £2.50 to cover postage and packaging and you can get up to 6 swatches per £2.50 charge.

How should I care for my fabrics?

We advise that all fabrics are pre-washed before you use them. It is normal for fabrics to shrink slightly when first washed, so pre-washing them before sewing with them, will lessen the chance of your lovely handmade garments shrinking.

We recommend that fabrics are washed on a 30 degree wash as standard, however, if a fabric requires special treatment, we will advise of it in the description. We do not recommend tumble drying your handmade garments – treat them with the love and care they deserve!

As all washing machines vary, it is your responsibility to test wash your fabric purchases from us.

Scissors & Rotary Cutters

You must be over 18 years of age to purchase rotary cutters or scissors. By choosing to purchase rotary cutters or scissors you are confirming you are over 18 years of age. Please note, we are unable to post scissors or rotary cutters to international customers.

How much fabric can I buy?

Our fabric is sold by the half metre to give you more options when it comes to quantities. For example, if you only require 2.3 metres, you have the option of buying 2.5 metres, rather than 3 metres. If you require 1 metre of fabric, please enter 2 in the quantity box.

Can I visit you in person?

Like Sew Amazing is an online shop only at present, we will let you know if we do open a real life shop!
