Is your fabric first quality?

Yes. Sailrite is committed to bringing you only first quality fabrics. However, even first quality fabrics will have a few flaws. For example, most mills permit up to six flaws per roll on their first quality fabric (roughly one flaw for every 10 yards of fabric).

In light of this policy, Sailrite will make every effort to avoid sending a flaw with fabric cuts under five yards. If longer cuts are required, Sailrite 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.

What is a "Yard" (Yd)?

Fabric is sold by the linear (running) yard. For Example, if a fabric is 60 inches wide and 1 yard is ordered, you will receive a piece 60 inches wide by a length of 36 inches. 

Is fabric shipped in pieces?

We always try our best to send fabric in one continuous piece. If you order more yardage than what is on a factory roll, you will receive one factory roll plus the remaining fabric needed. If for any other reason we cannot ship your order in one piece, we will contact you before shipping your order out. To see how many yards are in a factory roll of a given fabric, look under the Specifications for “Yards Per Roll.” Actual “yards per roll” may vary up to 10 yards depending on manufacturer.

How is fabric packaged?

Larger fabric orders will be rolled for shipment. Smaller yardage orders will be folded to save on shipping. If multiple fabrics are ordered, they may be rolled together on a common roll.

What size are fabric samples?

Most samples are either 6" x 6" or 3" x 12". Samples of striped fabrics are approximately 3" x 12" while patterned and solid fabrics are approximately 6" x 6". Samples may not show all of the colors or the full pattern in a fabric. To see full colors and pattern repeats, we suggest ordering a yard of fabric.

How do I order samples?

You can order samples of most fabrics by going to the product page for the fabric of interest and clicking on the “Order Sample” button. Sample books are also available for some fabric brands.

Does Sailrite have sewing machine dealers?

No. We sell all Sailrite machines directly. This helps keep prices down and also allows us to maintain direct contact with customers who purchase a sewing machine.

How do I request a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) or additional documentation on a product?

Send an email to info@sailrite.com and we will send you the requested documentation, if available.

Do you have retail locations?

Sailrite does not have retail locations.
