Ordering

Does the fabric come in one continuous piece?

All fabric is cut to order and will come in one piece provided whole and/or half yard increments are ordered.

Can I order linear 1/4 and 3/4 yards increments?

No, since we inventory all of our cotton fabric by the fat quarter, we do not sell 1/4 yard increments. 4my3boyz Fabrics was built on specializing in selling fabric by the fat quarter. This is a rectangle of fabric that is 18"x 22". A yard of fabric is usually 36" X 44", so there are 4 fat quarters to a yard of fabric.

What if you do not have the amount of fabric that I have ordered?

On occasion, if you order the last of what we have of a fabric it may be in pieces or we may not have the full amount that you have ordered. To avoid either of these scenarios from holding up your order, In the check-out you can choose the option to have us:

  • Contact you prior to shipping
  • Cancel and refund this fabric in your order, or
  • Send what we do have and refund the rest
How do I know how much fabric is available?
