Fabric is Priced Per 1/2 Metre
All fabric in the online fabric store is in Australian dollars and is priced per 1/2 metre.
Adding a quantity of "1" to the cart is adding 1/2m. Quantities greater than 1 will be cut in continuous lengths directly from bolt. (E.g. to order 2m continuously - select a quantity of 4)
Metres vs Yards
Some people like quilters are used to buying their fabric in yards. A yard is slighly less than a metre. To calculate use the following formula.
1 yard = 1.093 metres (therefore to convert yards to metres times by 1.093.) This works for cost as well. Something priced at $16/yard is the same as $17.50/metre
To convert metres into yards you need to divide by 0.9144.
So 1 metre (100cm) = 1 yard (91.44 cm) or 1m = 39.4 inches, 1yard = 36inches
Fat Quarters (less than 1/2m)
Fat Quarter Bundles are available for selected fabrics. Please ask if you would like a bundle made up of your choice.
