Metric vs. Imperial Measurements
We are a Canadian store and sell in metric measurements.
Since you may order on our webstore in metric decimal increments of .25, .375, .5, .625, .75, .875, and 1, here are these conversions to imperial measurements:
1 meter = 39.37" (so you see a meter is 9.3% or 3.37" larger than a yard!)
.875 meter = 34.45" (the nearest measurement to 7/8 yard)
.75 meter = 29.53" (the nearest measurement to 3/4 yard)
.625 meter = 24.61" (the nearest measurement to 5/8 yard)
.5 meter = 19.68" (the nearest measurement to 1/2 yard)
.375 meter = 14.76" (the nearest measurement to 3/8 yard)
.25 meter = 9.84" (the nearest measurement to 1/4 yard)
We are also happy to cut and sell Canadian-sized fat quarters of our standard-width quilting cottons. A Canadian-sized fat quarter is larger than an American fat quarter, as it is cut .5 meter by half the width of fabric. So it is approx. 19.68" x 21". An American-sized fat quarter is cut 18" by half the width of the fabric. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-877-745-6445 for our current pricing on fat quarters.
If you need help with conversions or wish to order fat quarters (Canadian sized at 19.68" by 1/2 the width of fabric) of any fabrics, please contact us at email@example.com or phone 1-877-745-6445.
Ordering from our Website
You may place orders directly through our website, which is simple, convenient, and secure. All orders are processed manually (not automatically through a third-party payment processor), and your credit card is not charged until the order is filled and shipping and handling have been calculated and added.
If you prefer to talk to a person and place your order, you may call us during store hours at our toll-free number of 1-877-745-6445. Sometimes this is the best way to place an order if you have questions regarding quantities, matching fabrics, or availability of products not shown on the website. If we are unable to answer the phone, or if you call outside of our normal hours of operation, please leave a message, and we will call you back.
You may also print out our Order Form (available in the listing at the bottom of our web page), complete it, and fax it to (403)873-0707.
Please note that orders are processed manually (the charge does not go through your card electronically at the time you place the order). Charges are made once we have your order packaged, and all shipping and tax charges have been determined.
You may pay with MasterCard or Visa credit cards, or PayPal. Debit cards, including those issued by Visa or MasterCard, cannot be accepted.
If you select PayPal as a payment method, there is no "pop-up" screen for PayPal at the time you place your order. Instead, when your order has been packaged and shipping and tax charges have been determined, a PayPal invoice will be sent to the email address you provide in your order. As well, an email will be sent to you to notify you of this.
Please note, that you do not have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal. Selecting PayPal allows you to pay with your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards, Amex, or Discover. If you have an account with PayPal you can also pay directly from your bank account.
Money orders and personal cheques are not accepted.
If you do not wish to provide your credit card number during checkout, please select "Call Me" as your payment option, and we will phone you for your Visa or Mastercard credit card number.
All items in the store are sold in Canadian dollars. If you live outside of Canada, your credit card company will automatically do the conversion on the payment, and it will show in your country's currency on your statement. To get an idea of the conversion, refer to this conversion website: www.xe.com/ucc/
