Canceling or Modifying an Order Order

Changes can only be made over the phone. You may call us to make changes to your order only if your order has not yet been sent to the warehouse to be cut and packed for shipping. An order cannot be modified or cancelled after the fabric has been cut. Adding additional items that will increase the original total amount will require a new credit card authorization. The original authorization will automatically expire in 2 to 10 business days depending on your financial institution, but until that time will reserve a portion of your total credit. You will receive a new order confirmation reflecting the change(s) via email and a ship confirmation when the order ships. Your credit card will not be charged until the order actually ships.

Fabric Disclaimers is engaged in the business of only selling first quality fabrics. In the fabric industry first quality fabrics will still have a few flaws. Glen Raven, Inc. who is the manufacturer of Sunbrella fabric permits up to 6 flaws per 60-yard roll to still be classified as first quality fabric. This averages out to 1 flaw per every 10 yards. will make every effort to avoid sending a flaw with fabric orders less than 5 yards. If longer cuts are required, recommends ordering additional fabric to compensate for the occasional flaw. Manufacturer flaw tags can be found on the edge of the fabric so the flaws can be avoided or inconspicuously placed when patterning your projects.

We strive to make our colors and other characteristics as accurate as possible, but screen images are intended as a guide only and should not be regarded as absolute replication of the product color and other characteristics.
