Default Amazon fabric

Has anyone ever ordered fabric from Amazon? Is it good quality fabric and how does it come delivered....that is does it come packaged good or haphazardly?

Never ordered from Amazon. Probably shipped from some other sub company?? Can't see fabrics working in their warehouses.

can you give us a sample link?
I'm guessing it is from various amazon merchants, not Amazon itself. Anyone can sell anything on Amazon, working out of their spare bedroom
Even I am a Amazon merchant. Just not fabric.

Amazon has many, many merchants selling things. It all depends on who you buy it from.

They are just a middle man. Read closely to see where the fabric originates.

The seller doesn't really affect the quality of the fabric it's the MANUFACTURER so I only buy fabric made by mills I'm familiar with.

I forgot to answer this part of your question. I've been an Amazon customer for many years. Packaging varies, but i have never had a problem with customer service in either replacing my order or refunding my money. My experience with their customer service has been very satisfactory.

I have made many purchases through Amazon and have never been disappointed. Packaging has always been very good. Amazon purchased fabric.com several years ago.

i generally have a great buying experience with amazon and it's 3rd party vendors. however, i'd bought a butter dish that was on a friend's registry [otherwise, would have purchased locally]. it arrived broken and the vendor was not totally cooperative. i eventually went to amazon customer service and they resolved it with a free replacement and a refund of the original purchase... so free was great!
