FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAQ

Where can I buy QT fabrics?

You will find our fabrics at any of your favorite Independent Quilt Shops or on-line stores.  If your Shop is not carrying the fabric you would like, just ask them to order it for you!  To locate a quilt shop near you, visit our “Where to Buy” section on the website.

I live outside the United States.  How do I purchase your fabrics?

QT Fabrics has a network of international distributors listed under our “Where to Buy” section on our website. 

Are there any special instructions for the care of QT Fabrics?   

Our fabrics are 100% Cotton.  Machine wash cold, normal cycle.  Use only non-chlorine bleach. Tumble dry medium. Use warm iron. Our fabrics are NOT intended for children's sleepwear.

Should I pre-wash your fabrics?

The decision is yours and depends on your personal preference and project type.  As a manufacturer with strict quality standards and experience in quilting cottons, we do recommend pre-washing your fabrics to ensure your finished project is as you intended.  Cotton fabrics are known to shrink (standard is 3-5%) and any excess dye from highly saturated colors (especially reds/purples) may transfer to other fabrics when washed.  QT fabrics meet and/or exceed industry standards for fabric quality.

Turn off “Page Scaling” or “Fit to Page” in the print dialog box to print the templates at actual size. Be sure to measure your templates to ensure they are the correct size before cutting.

Some of your fabrics mention on the selvedge “License is required for any use beyond individual consumption.”  Can I still make finished products with your fabric and sell them?
