This option allows you to send your own material to be used in our custom manufacturing workroom.
Lead-times do not start until we receive your fabric.
The material you intend on using must be available commercially at competitive pricing and not handmade, used, or a fabric that we deem not to be applicable for the project or defective.
Please call 727.597.4134 to confirm all yardage estimates if you have any repeat* larger than 16 inches. The repeat* has a big part to play with how much yardage we estimate is needed for each project.
Remnant or leftover fabric will be either recycled or donated. We will not send it back with your order.

Understanding Yardage Requirements

Based on the information above, it allows us to adjust the estimated yardage accordingly.
One lineal yard equals 36 inches × the fabric width.

Glossary of Terms
*Fabric Repeat – refers to stripes, patterns or plaids and is the measurement between each element. Choose a point in your fabric and measure from that point until you reach that same point again. The distance between those two points is the repeat.
Horizontal Repeat - runs across the roll, railroaded
Vertical Repeat – runs down the roll
How repeats effect your estimated yardage – the fabric needed is calculated in multiples of your fabric's repeat. If you have a repeat of 15 inches and your cushion is 30 inches, you would need a minimum of 3 repeats as we would need a minimum of 31 inches to sew the project together.
