    These samples came quite fast, even to the Scottish Highlands, where things normally take longer to arrive. They were well packed, nicely presented and big enough to assess the fabrics fairly. Having just made a mistake in ordering from another supplier (who did not supply samples) it was greatly reassuring to see and feel these fabrics before ordering.

    I am so glad you offer this sample service even to Switzerland. As it happened, I liked all the samples and would have ordered all the fabrics would the purse allow it. It is invaluable to have a sample service! Thanks!

    Really great service, I really appreciate being able to see samples in the flesh and Fabric Godmother is one of the best value services available. So thank you very much.

    One 4"by 3" sample shouldn't be £2.50 to send.

    That says it all really. I needed the sample but it took time to arrive and cost far too much to post. You need a sliding scale of postage for one to five pieces. Not a flat rate.I was just a bit disappointed. I've got similar sized samples of £185 per m lamé being sent over free elsewhere.

    Sorry. I just had to point this out.

    FABRIC GODMOTHER: Sorry you were disappointed, our flat rate P&P fee of £2.50 is for any orders so no mtter how much you order from us in the UK we only charge £2.50

    Samples are grate, except their turn around time is way to long. Definitely won’t be ordering if in need fabric in a hurry!

    FABRIC GODMOTHER: So sorry for the delay Jessica, we have been very short staffed but we are up and running again now you should see a much faster turnaround.

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

    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.
