Fun Fabrics for Quilting, Crafting and Sewing!

Palatine, Illinois | 4,904 Sales

Announcement    Hi Friends, I'm taking a short break this week. I'll be back on Tuesday September 30th. Look for the shop to open back up the weekend prior so listings will re-index. All orders in the queue currently will ship by Tuesday September 22nd. Thank you!

Stashtraders.com Fall 2020 Update:

It's Back to School time, but maybe it's just back to a new desk in the office as we continue to quarantine and social distance to help stop the spread of this virus. It might be time to think of updating your mask wardrobe, or maybe you just want a fresh jump on some new clothes. We have new patterns and some new fabrics.

Coming in this month are new patterns from Liesl + Co, Friday Pattern Company and the Sewing Workshop.
New Fabrics from Robert Kauffman - knits, linens and chambrays!
As we sew, sew shall we shop!

From our last few updates, the Etsy Advertising policy is still in effect so please know that our prices here on Etsy may be a bit higher in order to cover this extra cost. You are welcome to visit us across the internet and choose your venue of choice. We are the same company here on Etsy as we are across the internet. Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19 Update: We've had just one major change this month; we are now dropping off our packages directly at the distribution center. This has been a great change for us since we have absolutely no contact when we drop off your package, they go directly into distribution! Yay!

Thank you for your orders and thank you for your patience!

=========================================================================

We LOVE fabrics! We LOVE to sew, and quilt, and craft and sometimes we just stop and love to gaze at our own collection of fun, colorful and sometimes whimsical collection thinking about all the projects we'll create!

What will you create?

Welcome to Stash Traders!

We carry mostly quilt weight cotton fabrics, but also flannels, knits, linens and chambrays. Our inventory changes frequently as new fabrics are introduced by fabric manufacturers and seasoned fabrics are retired. If you don't find it here on Etsy there's a good chance it's on our Website.
We are constantly on the lookout for great fabrics we can offer for great prices and we continue to increase our basics inventory.

Our favorite fabric brands are: Studio E, Wilmington, Free Spirit, Timeless Treasures, Gallery by Choice, Red Rooster, Henry Glass, Michael Miller, Art Gallery Fabrics, James Thompson, Susybee, Windham, Kanvas, Robert Kauffman.

We also carry Books, Patterns, Batting, Thread, Notions and Rulers. Look for Creative Grids and EZ brand rulers, Superior and Aurifil Thread, Hobbs Batting, and many notions to help you with your sewing!

BRANDS AVAILABLE but not listed: Below is a list of BRANDS we carry but not all items are listed in our etsy shop. Feel free to contact us to order a non-listed item.
*Hobbs Batting
*Clover notions
*Creative Grids Rulers
*Aurilfil Thread
*Superior Thread


Use the SEARCH bar or links within our listings to help with coordinating fabrics within the shop. Combine fabrics virtually by either favorites, your shopping cart or pinterest. Of course I'm always here to help you if you need it!

PLEASE NOTE: Our fabric listings are By-The-Yard for the majority of all of our fabric that is sold on bolts. Our apologies in advance as we no longer custom cut Fat Quarters off the bolts. Our minimum cut is 1 yard, unless otherwise available in a listing, so if you require a CUSTOM CUT beyond 1 yard that is not in whole yard increments please send a convo and we'll create a custom listing (a custom listing beyond a yard would be something like 1-1/3yard, 4-1/2 yards etc.), otherwise the available quantity in the dropdown is the amount of yards we have on hand and you can order in whole yard increments.

WEBSITE: We also have a website at Stashtraders.com so many items you cannot find here in the Etsy shop may be available direct.

SHIPPING: Most of our items use the calculated shipping feature here on Etsy. It's not an exact science and sometimes we see shipping fees that don't quite match up with what's being ordered, so if this is happening to you please Convo us and we'll make you a custom listing.

But GENERALLY, this is how things ship from our shop:

Fabric:
-Up to 15 ounces (approx 2 yards) of Quilting fabric are packaged in a Tyvek Mailer and shipped USPS First Class Mail.
-Over 15 ounces are shipped in a size appropriate package/box and typically will be sent via USPS Priority Mail, unless it weighs so much that Priority Mail is just too expensive, then it will go via the best rate. Hawaii and Alaska customers please make sure you select Priority or First Class unless you don't mind waiting 6 weeks to a few months to get your order by container.

Patterns:
-Thin patterns less than 1/4" thickness- if you only purchase 1 pattern and it is less than 1/4" thick I send these as letters in a manila envelope. Sending these as letters ensures a great chance they won't be crushed by a box or package.

-Thicker patterns, greater than 1/4" thickness, or more than 1 pattern purchased at the same time will be sent as a package. If less than 15 ounces combined will go First Class Mail, if over 15 ounces than these will go Priority.

Notions:
-Notions are typically greater than 1/4" thick and are shipped as packages. If under 15 ounces they are shipped as First Class, over 15 are shipped as Priority.

Batting and Large Rulers:
-Batting is no longer offered in this Etsy Shop due to the shipping. We do still sell batting through our website where shipping can be more accurately calculated.

-Large Rulers are no longer offered in this Etsy Shop due to the shipping. We do still sell rulers through our website where shipping can be more accurately calculated.

International shipping; I ship to select countries but not every item I offer in the shop. You should be able to see shipping prices once you add the item to your shopping cart.

Thank you for choosing Etsy and shopping my humble little fabric shop!

    Frequently asked questions
    Will you cut a custom order?

    YES! We'll cut just about any length of fabric and combination there is beyond a 1 yard cut! Our minimum for a custom order is 1 yard off of our bolts. Just send me a convo and I'll put together a custom order for you.

    Do you cut less than a yard?

    Yes we do, but our minimum is 1 yard. Please just send a convo of which fabrics you'd like and we'll put an order together for you. So if you want 2 half yards, 4 quarter yards or a 3/4 yard and a 1-1/2 yard just let us know. This policy helps us keep our fees at a minimum.

    Arbitraged orders Shipped as 'Gifts'

    What is Arbitrage? Loosely defined, this is when, let's just say... you order from one marketplace (such as Amazon) or another shop here on Etsy, but your item arrived from another marketplace as a 'gift'. Please know our products are physically here in our shop and we ship from our own inventory. We will never arbitrage your order to a 3rd or 4th party. This causes great confusion to the original purchaser and we do not condone the practice. If for some reason we cannot fulfill your order we will contact you.

    Fabric Donations

    Etsy has a very strict policy that protects their Sellers from solicitations. During this Covid-19 crisis we've seen a thousand percent increase in the inquiries for fabric donations. Please know that this business is my livelihood and I don't apologize for trying to make a living. Please look through my Clearance and Scrap sections, there's always something there that can be had for sometimes half of what I paid for it. I run Sales too so there again...good stuff! If you buy from me and wish me to top off a box with off-cuts just let me know in the note to seller section on your order.
