Terms of Sale
Just as in almost any fabric shop, all sales are final once your fabric has been cut. With online orders, that will happen early on the next business day--your credit card will be charged immediately after the fabric has been cut. If you wish to modify your order, send us an email before our business hours begin the next day--if we receive it in time, we will gladly make the changes you request. Otherwise, your order will be processed and no changes or cancellations will be accepted.

We make every effort to ensure that our product images are as accurate as possible, but we are not responsible for variations in tone or scale from what you see on your computer screen. The only foolproof way to evaluate whether a particular fabric is right for you is to look at it in person. We invite you to visit ThreadBear and do just that at any time during normal business hours.
