Orphan fabrics are pieces that have already been dyed our most popular colors. They are typically end of the bolt pieces that are odd sizes. They are NOT seconds - they are the same quality as our made to order fabric.
They will be shipped rolled.
Orphan fabrics are NOT returnable.
Color may vary between lighter and darker depending on screen resolutions and pieces may have more or less mottling/shading than seen in the image.
3-5 business days
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We use 100% cotton Charles Craft and Zweigart Aida, 100% cotton Zweigart Evenweave and 100% Zweigart linen. Our base fabric is white or Antique White, depending on availability. Our fabric is cut to the requested size and then dyed to order. Shrinkage does occur so please consider this when calculating your needs. All of our hand-dyed fabrics are colorfast and can be washed.
Our shipping time varies depending on how busy we are. Our fabric is dyed to order and the processing time can be anywhere from 2-10 business days. We try to ship as quickly as possible and most orders ship within 3 days. If we are very busy (usually before holidays and after trade shows) I will update the shipping to reflect the delay. Please contact us if you are concerned about the actual shipping time and we will give you a more accurate time frame.
Dream Big Little Mermaid - the floss list is incorrect on some charts. Please use the following information: A is E3949, B is 793, C is 4030 and D is 3810. All are DMC colors.
Willamina's Woolens - the fabric color used in the model should read Ocean Traditional not Midnight.
We do offer custom sizes. Please contact us for individual pricing. At this time, we are no longer doing custom colors.
Every computer, tablet, phone - represents color in a different way. Typically, this is no where near what the color actually looks like in person. Please do not base your fabric choice on the image you are seeing - for every listing, there is a DMC floss reference. Please use THIS information when deciding on a color for your project. But also remember that even this is just a reference. The hand-dyed fabric is just that - it is dyed entirely by hand - not mass produced in a factory some where. Each and every piece will be slightly different. We are also available for help and suggestions, please contact us and we will be happy to provide assistance.
There were two things we considered when experimenting with different dyeing techniques - the stiffness of the fabric that we wanted to use and the desire for a virtually wrinkle free product. After much experimentation, it became apparent that the traditional dip-dye technique would not work for us when it came to the Aida and Evenweave. We decided to go with a brush-on technique that results in a beautiful, muted finish with subtle shading. To achieve a wrinkle free product, the fabric is laid flat to dry. While either side may be stitched on, there is generally a right and wrong side. We roll and package the fabric with the "right" side out. Our linen is dyed in a traditional dip dye and laid flat to dry. It is shipped folded.
We ship on the same day that the shipping label is printed. We cannot control how long it takes for USPS or Fed Ex to get the item to you. Since Covid, there have been delays in customers receiving the orders. However, items are rarely actually lost in the mail. We will not issue a refund or mail a new item out until at least 30 days have passed with out any updated tracking information. After 30 days, we will assume the item is truly lost in the mail and a new item will be shipped or a refund will be issued.

This reminds me of what was once called Robin Blue or Denim Blue. Great shade of blue, nonetheless.
