Announcement    My printer recently went on the fritz. Currently, I can print the black and white shipping labels but I cannot print invoices to send with orders because they are in color. If you need an invoice printed, you should be able to print one yourself or take a screenshot with your phone. Sorry.

🚚 We are moving to our .com website. Many of our items are already available there with more added as time allows: www.thepalmcottage.com. Check there for what you are looking for and if it is not there yet, please feel free to request it.
You will get the same fabrics and esteemed service that we have provided through Etsy for the last 8 years. We can offer great prices and a better shipping platform that will not require refunds because there will be no overages. You can use PayPal or credit cards through Shopify to check out. Your credit card info can not be seen by the seller on either platform. You can also request custom listing just like on Etsy.

Sadly, for us, Etsy is not what it used to be and our profits were cut over 50% in 2019 with their new increases in fees. We finally raised prices in June 2020 when it became apparent we could not sustain a business on the drastically reduced profit.

🏢 Every fabric manufacturer is behind on projected new collections arrival dates due to mills being shut for the coronavirus. One fabric brand's mill went out of business because of this stupid virus. I hope the fabric brand can survive... Every single thing and person in the world has been affected. Be patient and kind to one another and stay safe.

❤️ Thank you so much for all the orders!! We actually anticipated sales stopping but many of you are making masks and sales increased. Art Gallery fabrics are 205 thread count (133 X 72) made from a fine weave that is nice and tight for masks and multiple washings.
An FYI to those who question: most of our fabric is from South Korea and a few are from Pakistan.

📍 Please note that it costs the same to ship 1/2 yard and 1 yard of fabric because they fall in the same weighted price range.

🗺 We are located just 8 miles from Art Gallery fabrics. If there is an AG design you would like but do not see, please request it. If it is in stock with AG, we can likely pick it in a day. We are happy to do this for larger orders. It is not cost effective to drive there daily for 1/2 yard orders.

🌎 International shoppers: Etsy is collecting a 10% tax on the total including shipping to Australia. I have not had other recent international orders, so I can not be sure of what any others might be. It will show up in your cart automatically.

🇬🇧 The United Kingdom seems to be holding packages until you pick them up and pay duty. This is not something I can control. I can not collect duty in the US for the UK government. It must be collected there.

🔜 Some upcoming collections will be added to the Pre-Order sections. Read listings carefully for release dates! Some are over 6 months away.

✔️ Check the PRE-ORDER SALE section for sale pricing on upcoming collections. Buy early and save!! The Pre-Order section shows pre-orders where the sale has ended but the fabric has not yet arrived.
If you do not see one or both of these sections on the left, then that means there are no current pre-orders. Check back!

📫 USPS Priority Flat Rates for quilter's weight cotton fabric:
Envelope $7.65 (1-4 yards)
Padded Envelope $8.25 (5-9 yards) (8 yds International due to weight)
Medium Box $13.35 (10-18 yards)

*If you are in Australia 🇦🇺, your best deal is Priority because I can ship 8 yards for $35.35. 3 yards standard shipping is $24.

Remember, I always refund excess shipping over $.50 or you can request a listing with exact shipping cost.

💳 You can now use Apple Pay and Google Pay at checkout!

🛎 Current turnaround time is 1-2 business days. Thanks for stopping by! Have a seat on our porch, browse our goodies and hopefully you find just what you were looking for and maybe even a goodie or two you didn't know you "needed."

The Palm Cottage

I have a deep love for fabrics. LOVE I tell ya! So, it made sense that while looking for a business I could start at home and grow with time, this would be the one.

    My dear, sweet mama. Taught me to sew along with MANY other crafts. She loves sewing and quilting. She’s a former teacher & daycare worker. She even homeschooled us for 5 years back when it was “hush hush”. I learned so much more from her 1 on 1.

    The love of my life. My first dog. She barks and tells me when the mailman is here picking up your orders. Gives the poor man a hard time. :O She is a hypoallergenic, non-shedding Yorkie/Shihtzu mix and she does not touch any fabrics.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
At this time we do not accept returns unless you were sent the entirely wrong item, but we believe in making and KEEPING our customers happy. If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, please let us know and we can arrange a solution to meet your satisfaction.
Payment
Pay at checkout with Paypal, major credit cards, Google Pay and Apple Pay. FL residents: 7% sales tax will be automatically added to your order.

Customs and duties in other countries is to be paid by the buyer if your postal provider requires it. The UK is hitting people hard with customs fees lately. Do your research first to find out what it could be. Sellers in one country have no way of knowing who "might" be charged extra by customs in another country. It is usually random and like rolling the dice. You may not get a fee one time but will another.
Shipping
📬 We ship with the United States Postal Service. Mail pick-up is around 11AM (EST). So, your order will likely go out the day after it is placed but please allow up to 2 business days for processing, especially during the Holidays.
📦 First Class Shipping takes 4-6 business days and is only available up to 16 oz. (2.5 yds. of fabric) and anything more is shipped Priority or parcel if it is a very large order. If you have overpaid actual shipping by $.75 or more, you will receive a refund. If you would like insurance for 1-2 yards, please request a custom listing for it. All orders 3 yards + have Priority insurance included up to $100.
✔️ Delivery confirmation is always included, even with First Class. You can upgrade a 1 or 2yd. purchase to Priority 2-3 days yourself by purchasing the Priority Upgrade listing in our shop. 3 yds or more is ALWAYS shipped Priority. The USPS does not "guarantee" 2-3 days.
If you need Express 1-2 days, please ask for a private listing. Prices start at $14 and must be ordered by 3PM EST to go out the same day. The further you live from Florida, the higher the cost. The USPS does guarantee 1-2 days and extra shipping will be refunded if delivered late. I do not know how long that refund can take.

It is the buyers responsibility to ensure correct address with your payment, when checking out. Please, double check!! I ship to the address shown on your Etsy payment receipt/invoice. Items that are shipped to a wrong address can be diverted in transit to a different address for a fee of $15.

Assume that items purchased after 12PM EST on Friday will ship the next Monday. It will probably ship Friday or Saturday but it is not guaranteed.

NOTE: When you see a shipping label has been created, that means your order has just been packaged up and IS going out the door that day. I do NOT print labels ahead of time like other businesses do. The post office does not update very well, so it can take two days to see movement in the tracking. On a very rare occasion I print a label, miss my carrier and can not make it to a drop box or PO before last pick-up/closing.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have a request for additional yardage than is shown available or if there is a fabric you want but don't see, please, feel free to ask! There is a chance that if there is enough interest, we can order it or it might just already be on order and you'll be one of the first to know.
At this time, some older listings are for 1 yard amounts only but smaller amounts can also be accommodated down to a fat quarter. Please ask for a custom order for these or any half yard amount, like 2.5 yards. The shipping on Etsy is not a great system to sell in many sizes/weights for the same item, so it makes the most sense for us to list in 1 yard amounts.
