How Do Fabric 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 fabric once all the pre orders have been shipped. These cuts and designs are limited and sell quite quickly.

We have a range of 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

Fabric Returns & Exchanges

Unfortunately we do not accept returns due to a change of mind or if the fabric was not what you expected.

We do offer the option to order fabric swatches, so please ensure you choose your fabrics carefully.

Please note that due to the nature of digital printing and cotton fibres, from time to time minor flaws may appear in the fabric.

We do our very best to inspect the fabric during the cutting process, if your fabric has a flaw please contact us whimsykaleidoscope@gmail.com with an image of the flaw and we can discuss your options.

Please note that the feel & colour saturation of the same design/substrate may vary if fabrics are from a different production runs.

Please note that colour saturation can vary on different fabric bases in the same production run. This is due to the manufacturing process and how the fabrics absorb colour.

If you wish to compare the fabric you have received with a sample, the cost of shipping the sample will be the responsibility of the customer.

We do our very best to ensure your fabric is provided in a continuous metre. Due to production processes/fabric flaws, we may not be able to provide you with a continuous metre. If this is the case we will contact you prior to shipping your fabric.

We cannot accept exchanges if you have changed your mind, washed your fabric, not taken note of the scale, colours or fabric type.

Fabric Care

We always recommended pre washing fabric on a cold gentle wash, prior to sewing.

Whilst our fabrics have minimal shrinkage some fabric bases have an approx. shrinkage of 1% – 2.5%
