Who wants a fat quarter?

I am sure that anyone that has set up a business, whether large or small would agree with me that it is not an easy task.† For me it has been an incredible learning experience and Iím sure this will carry on as long as I am trading.† Taking decisions is a daily task, sometimes I get it right, sometimes not so right.

When I set up the Fabric Loft I decided to sell by the length and not by fat quarter.† Fat Quarters would only be sold in bundles.† The reason is simple, I never buy a single FQ.† I couldnít bear not knowing how the whole pattern of a fabric looks, what if I had missed the best part of it by only buying a fraction of the total width of the roll?† And if the pattern is small? Well, I just want the whole width of width of the fabric, even if is just to brighten up my stash.

But we are all not the same, and not everybody thinks like me (and sometimes that is a good thing believe me!).† So I have decided to make a few changes and sell both Fat Quarters and by the length to please you all!

Check the chart below to know what you would need to enter in the box depending on how much fabric you want:

fat quarter 0.25
1.2 metre 0.50
3/4 metre 0.75
1 metre 1
1 ľ metres 1.25
1 Ĺ metres 1.5
1 ĺ metres 1.75
2 metres 2

    I think with everyone being so short of money at the moment it’s easier to be able to buy small amounts of fabric, and allows you to try out fabrics without buying loads of it.

    Bet they’ll sell well for you :-)

  2. I understand totally why you haven’t sold them before, but like Fiona says, sometimes it’s quite nice just to get a bit of something. And of course, if you are making something small, or patchworking, then FQs are brilliant. I hope they do really well for you. I will try and remember to put your news in my fabric update tomorrow.. :)

    I’ve only recently started buying fat quarters and am surprised at what you can make out of one ! Hope you do well :-)

  4. Like you I feel like am missing something when I buy a FQ, but have started doing lots of interesting things with them. Maybe ask customers to post pix of things they have finished to help the ideas flow!

    I think it’s a good idea and so is selling it by length which some shops don’t do.
    I must say I like buying FQ’s when the print is small, it’s also a good way of seeing what a print is like before spending too much money!

Its the cutest thing!.Congrats again girly. I’m so happy for you guys and your new home. Jas and I may upgrade next year but I don’t plan on owning a home, maybe not ever lol. I’ll see if time changes my mind. Lolkrissy recently posted..[] Reply:March 4th, 2011 at 12:15 PMAww, that so cute! Her crib converts all the way to a (twin size, i think) regular bed, but we’re keeping her in the crib for now. I don’t think Izzy would stay in the bed if she has the ability to get out, lol! We might try it out in a few months though![] Reply:March 4th, 2011 at 12:37 PMJas gets out of her bed times but I make her get her tail right back in there lol. But a converter crib is a good thing. If I had one I would be using that lol. Can’t wait to see what you do with her room. I love makeover/home improvement/diy type things lolkrissy recently posted..[]

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope
    you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks

  11. This actuually could be far from the truth, and you could accidentally pay far too much for
    the printing supplies that you need. From the Brother you can expect to get good uality Laser Toners and Color Laser Toners.
    Toner is often selected over traditional ink because the cartridges are
    very large and hold a good amount of toner.
