      Shopping & Ordering

      Is your fabric priced by the yard?
      Yes, fabric prices shown are per yard -- unless it's under the Bundles & Pre-Cuts section. Those are priced individually. 

      We cut our fabric-by-the-yard straight from the bolt, so if you order yardage of a particular fabric it will be a continuous piece.

      Can I order less than a yard?
      Yes. In fact, you can order as little as 1/2 yard -- and in 1/4 yard increments thereafter.  Keep in mind that fabric prices are shown by-the-yard throughout the site, unless otherwise noted, and prices will automatically be adjusted once added to your cart. 

      I'm trying to order "x" amount of yardage, but the dropdown menu doesn't go that high. Can you help me?
      Our dropdown menu only goes up to the amount we have in stock. So if you're trying to order 9 yards but we only have 7, that's all you can select and add to cart.

      Do you take pre-orders for fabrics listed under the "Coming Soon" section?
      If you'd like to pre-order any of our fabrics listed under "Coming Soon" please get in touch with us. We do accept pre-orders on some (not all) fabrics and can set up a custom listing for you. Once we've set up a custom listing, simply add the item to your cart and checkout as you would with any order.

      Since we are reserving the fabric for you, effectively removing it from inventory and preventing others from buying it, you have 3 days to pay for your custom listing or it will be removed and the inventory returned so others can pre-order or buy it.

      Can you cut a custom bundle for me?
      Usually, we can. Contact us by sending us an email. Please note that custom fat quarter cuts cost 50 cents more over the 1/4-yard price -- and not all fabrics are available to be cut as fat quarters.

      Do you have a brick-and-mortar shop? I would love to visit you!
      No, we do not currently have a brick-and-mortar shop. But you can still connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and our blog.

      I live locally. Can I pick up my order?
      Gosh, we love hearing this!  Unfortunately, we're just not set up for order pickups or deliveries.

      What forms of payment do you accept?
      You may pay with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) or via PayPal. All payments -- whether via credit card or PayPal -- are processed in a secure, encrypted environment. (Look for the https:// in your browser bar to show that you are checking out in a secure environment.) We should note that a PayPal account is not needed to pay with PayPal.

      I'm paying with PayPal but the yardage quantities for fabric are different on PayPal than what appears in my shopping cart on your website. What's going on?
      Yardage quantities that appear in PayPal show up in .25 yard increments. For example, you order 1 yard of fabric "X" and it shows up as 1 yard at However, when you checkout with PayPal it will show a quantity of 4 (because 4 x .25 = 1 yard). This is correct and nothing to worry about.

      I have a coupon code for my order. Where do I enter it?
      You can enter your coupon code during checkout, after you've entered your billing and shipping information.

      I'm trying to pay with my credit card but it's not going through. What's going on?
      The credit card information you enter on our website has to match exactly what's on file with your credit card company. Something as simple as a misspelling or putting your address in the right order (particularly for addresses with apartments or any that use 2 lines) can cause the transaction to be declined.

      I just placed an order but would now like to cancel it. Can I do that?
      We can cancel orders that have NOT shipped. We process orders pretty quickly here, though -- and if we have already cut your order (even if it hasn't shipped), a 15% restocking fee will apply since we now have cut fabric that is no longer available to sell straight off the bolt. 

      What is your 7-day price guarantee?

      You buy something, then it goes on sale the next day.  We know that feeling, too!  Well, not to worry -- you can still claim that savings. 

      What’s eligible for the 7-day price guarantee?

      Items purchased up to 7 days before a sale start-date are eligible for our sale-price guarantee program.  Note that the item(s) you purchased must be in stock during the sale to claim the savings. If an item is no longer available, it is not eligible.

      How do I claim my savings?

      Simply contact us by e-mail (donna[at]bloomeriefabrics[dot]com) and provide the eligible item info within 15 days of your order (name of items, date of purchase, invoice number).  Once the info is verified, we’ll issue you a cool savings code for the price difference. The savings code works like a gift card and can be used toward a future Bloomerie order.  Yowzah!

      How can I stay on top of Bloomerie sales?

      We send sale info and coupon codes to our newsletter subscribers regularly, so sign up today if you haven’t already!



      Do you ship internationally?
      Yes, we do. 

      When will my order ship?
      Orders ship within 2 business days of receiving cleared payment -- and often times sooner. If you're paying via Paypal's e-check option, please note that your order will not ship until after your payment clears. This can take an additional 4-7 days.  Shipping holidays

      I placed multiple orders within a short time frame. Can you combine shipping for these orders?
      If you place multiple orders on the same day, we can usually combine them. Please email us to see if this is possible.

      It's important to note here that combining orders for shipping may or may not reduce your shipping charges. Once we have all your orders packaged and ready to ship, we'll be able to determine if you're eligible for a shipping refund. (This is based on our cost to ship all your orders together.) If so, we'll edit your total shipping charge once your order is ready to ship, minus a 40¢ fee per order. 

      How do you mark international customs forms?
      International packages requiring customs forms will be filled out honestly. Packages are marked as "merchandise" to comply with US federal laws. Totals listed match the price you paid at checkout.

      Will I have to pay customs fees/duties/taxes on my package?
      Each country is different and sets its own rules, regulations, and fee structures. Please familiarize yourself with your country's rules regarding customs fees on packages so that you are not surprised once your package arrives. Buyers are solely responsible for any and all fees/duties/etc. assessed on packages.

      I'm an international customer and received a confirmation that my order has shipped, but there is no tracking information available.
      International shipments via USPS offer no tracking, aside from an occasional origination scan in the United States. This doesn't mean your package hasn't shipped or is lost. USPS just does not offer any tracking as part of this service.


      Returns & Re-shipping returned orders

      Do you accept returns?
      Yes and no. Read below for the details.

      - You can return your fabric purchase for up to 7 days after receipt for a refund. A 15% re-stocking fee will apply. Items must be in original condition. This means it must be uncut, unused, and stain and odor-free. (Here's a tip: When returning fabric, package it in the plastic bag it was sealed in when it was sent to you. This should help protect it from the elements during shipping.)

      - Due to copyright laws, patterns, books and magazines may not be returned. Sorry, but there are no exceptions to this rule.

      - Clearance fabric (that is, fabric priced at $6 or less per yard) may not be returned.

      - Customers are responsible for all return shipping charges (unless we made a mistake, in which case the customer can be reimbursed an amount equal to shipping the correct item.  Always contact us first, though).   

      Once returned items are received and deemed re-sellable, will we issue a refund via original payment method. Please allow up to 10 days after receipt for your refund to be processed.   MORE


      I provided an incomplete or incorrect address during checkout and my package cannot be delivered as addressed. What now?
      In most cases, the post office will simply return the package to us. Please contact us to let us know what happened and whether you would like us to re-ship the order back to you once we receive it. You will need to pay to re-ship the package and we will invoice you via Paypal for this.

      If we don't hear back from you after receiving a returned order, we will cancel the original order and refund 85% of your merchandise total. (Shipping charges are not refundable and a 15% restocking fee applies.)


      Lost or Damaged Packages -- or I didn't receive my package even though it was delivered

      We package orders with care, enclosing fabric, patterns and notions in plastic sleeves to protect them from the elements during shipping. Even though we take preventative measures on each order, things may happen that are out of our control. We do not assume responsibility for packages that are lost or damaged during transit. These are factors that are out of our control and USPS is liable for the delivery of your package.

      On most orders, you may file a claim with USPS for lost/damaged packages and be reimbursed for the value of your order. (If we file the claim on your behalf, they will send us the money for your order. This is why we recommend that you file the claim so you will receive the money.)

      If your package is lost or tracking shows that it has been delivered but you did not receive it, contact your local post office and let them know. Be sure to reference your tracking number. USPS is in possession of your package and only they will be able to access unique information and tools to help locate it. (Note: we have access to the same level of tracking and detail as you do through online tracking at Nothing more.)

      Feel free to contact us to let us know and if we can provide any additional information, we will. We will not reship lost or damaged packages. A new order must be placed.
