By placing an order at Q|A Fabrics, you are agreeing to the policies set forth, conditions, and the terms of sale.
Ordering- To order, please visit qafabrics.com. The preorder dates can be found on the website as well as the albums section.
Pricing- Depending on the fabric base, preorder prices per yard will range from $19-24 , retail prices $20-26. Adult Panels are $9-$11, retail $11-$13 & child panels are $7-$9 retail $8-$11.
Payment methods- All transactions are taken place on the website. We offer secure checkout through Shopify Payments, Paypal, and Sezzle. If paying with a Paypal E-Check, tour order will not be shipped until the payment is recieved. These type of payments take 3-5 days to process.
Timeline- The current turnaround time per round is 8-12 weeks. This timeline is based on my printer so I cannot guarantee this turnaround time each round if there is a delay in printing.. After the fabric arrives to me, please allow 2-3 weeks for cutting and shipping. I will have status round updates posted in the files section and the group wall, for your convenience.
Quality Check- As soon as the fabric arrives, it is thoroughly examined for flaws. However, due to the process that comes with digital printing, flaws are likely to occur. I will inspect each yard/panel I cut to make sure you are receiving quality before packing your order.
Order Fullfillment- During this time, we will be batch labeling so you may receive a shipping notification before your order has been packed/shipped. I will keep the group updated
daily during this period.
Combining Orders- During the order fulfillment process on your Pre-order, I will combine and refund shipping overages if you placed more than one order. Retail orders are fullfilled promptly and ship as soon as the same day order combining is only available for Pre-order fabrics and not Retail Purchases.
Returns/Refunds/Cancellations- To ensure each customer is receiving “fresh from the printer fabrics” we do not accept returns. If your order has not shipped or been packed, cancellations are permitted. A 25% cancellation fee will be imposed to cover the time it takes to process the order changes, issue refund, and restock the fabric. **BEFORE WASHING, if there are any issues upon the arrival of your fabric please contact me in 7 days of receiving your order, at firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes flawed fabric, holes larger than a dime, missing fabric, or wrong fabric sent.
Currently I am running 2-3 week rounds. Seeing as this is a new shop I plan to keep each round pretty small for the time being to see how things go. I do hope to run a new round every 1-2 months. As my children become older, I will be able to do much more. So just bare with me as I start this journey!! ;)
Retail Pre-Cut yardage- Please note all yardage is pre-cut during the order fulfillment process for the pre-order. The remaining pieces are listed on the website as pre-cut yardage. For example, our listings will say 1 yard, 2 yard etc, so when you click 1 yard twice, you are receiving 2- 1 yard cuts.
Due to the nature of different computer screens and devices, please expect a 10% percent fabric color variance when viewing the stock photo and finished sewn items. Natural lighting and artificial light sources will affect how the color is perceived as well. I encourage you to review the stock photo and multiple strike off seamstresses photos before placing your order. Also please note due to the nature of different fabric bases, the coloration may vary.
Wash and Care Instructions- Due to the handling of fabric from printer to packaged, it is important to wash your fabric before sewing. I recommend machine washing the fabric on a gentle light cold cycle then drying on hot.
U.S. Shipping Estimates-
As of 2019, here are the current USPS rates, (please note these prices are tentative and may change with the coming year; due to different bases these yardage amounts are estimates):
