    The samples arrived very quickly and were very like the images on screen, but obviously better to see them ‘in the flesh’!

    Free samples

    I have always been pleased with the samples I received from Fabric Godmother. If the requested sample was out of stock I was sent a similar fabric in a different colour which is a good idea. The only thing that puzzles me it is that sometimes it takes over a week for samples to arrive even though they are sent via 24 hour mail service but actual fabrics have always arrived within 2-3 days. However, this might be related to Royal Mail and not to Fabric Godmother.

    It's so helpful to be able to request free samples and if a retailer charges i generally dont bother. The selection I received from Fabric Godmother were of sufficient size to see the print and examine the handle of the fabric. I was able to confidently choose 2 fabrics to purchase and I was really pleased with the quality. Will definately purchase from Fabric Godmother in future.

    Came very quickly. Good size. When you dressmake you need to be able to see/feel the fabrics before buying.

    My purchase was samples for home sewing.
    The colours of the of the fabric samples when thy arrived were slightly different from thise on the website .
    I appreciate that this is a problem of soucing fabric over the internet - and not an issue psecificay for your company.
    I was very pleased with your sampling service and will use you again if I see some fabric I might like.

    Beautiful fabric

    Posted by wendy foreman on 21st Jun 2018

    The fabric was nearly an exact match to my outfit. It was classy and lightweight and doesn't create like linen. I purchased enough fabric to make 2 tops

    Great idea

    Great idea to have samples to see and feel before committing to buying several metres of fabric, only to find out it's wrong for what you want it for.
