    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

    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.

    Goof quality fabric samples

    Posted by Chris on 12th May 2018

    I sent for samples in various materials. I was looking for specific colours to make up and match outfits. Unfortunately turquoise/teal is described differently by different companies so none of the samples matched the fabrics I already had. However, the service was very good and the samples well presented and packaged. A couple of the samples gave me ideas for some new designs after I have finished my current projects as they were lovely fabrics. I will certainly use Fairygodmother again.

    I love being able to see fabrics before I buy and this service is brilliant - free samples just pay p&p or add to an existing order! Saves expensive mistakes when buying.

    It is difficult to tell what a fabric would look like online, and The provides samples for the simple cost of postage.

    An amazing part of their Customer Service

    Fabric Godmother provided several samples for me and were very helpful while doing so -- it has been of great benefit in getting just the weight and color of fabric I was after. Even though my samples were all black, they'd been labelled so I could easily tell them apart.
