Ordering Information

First, thank you for stopping by our website!   We've been in the fabric business since 1978, when we first opened our doors as The Fabric Garden in Madison, Maine.  We look forward to helping you find just the right fabric or product.  Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need assistance with anything.

The Fabric Garden is a live quilt shop. There may be a rare time that the product you order is sold out in our store. When placing your order, you will be given an option to either cancel your order, ship what we have, or have us contact you. 

Fabric may be ordered online in minimum 1/2 yard cut.  Use drop-down menu to put "0" in left drop-down, and "1/2 yard"  on right drop-down.  After 1/2 yard minimum, fabric is ordered in 1/4 yard increments for your convenience.  Fabrics are 100% cotton, unless indicated otherwise.

In-Store Pickup
If you live local to our store and would like to save on shipping, click "Pickup In Store" at checkout. You will not be charged for shipping, and your package will be waiting for you at The Fabric Garden for pickup after two business days of ordering. We will alert you when your order is ready for pickup. 

Cancellation / Return Policy
We process orders as soon as they arrive to us.   Cancellation of orders is not guaranteed - especially if your fabric has been cut or your package has been shipped.  If you would like to request a cancellation of your order, you must contact us as soon as possible - no later that one hour after placing your order - by emailing  That is the only method of communication for requesting a cancellation of orders.   Again, this does not guarantee cancellation of your order if it has already been processed.  Once fabric is cut it may not be cancelled or returned.
