How Do Fabrics Releases Work?
Whimsy Fabrics are perfect for home sewing projects and for businesses looking to create products with our fabrics. Our fabric releases happen as a limited pre order, which makes them exclusive and special. We always release our new collections as a pre order, so you can secure the fabric base and design that you’re after without the stress of missing out. We do release any remaining once all the pre orders have been shipped. These cuts and designs are limited and sell quite quickly.
We have a range incredible fabrics and our collections are growing, so to stay in the loop with pre order release dates, pre cut releases and restocks, sign up to our newsletter and follow us Instagram and tiktok. All the release details including all the fabric details can be found in the listings in our shop when pre orders are open and on our Instagram.
