I received today some fabrics ordered on line.
To my surprise the quality of some brand name/ designer fabrics are very poor. I got a roll of Kaffe Fassetīs prints that are very thin label says "made in Korea".
R Kaufman also low quality. Is there a way of knowing who sells seconds before paying for fabric and shipping ?
I have never had quality problems with Fabric Shack or Thousands of Bolts ! Iīm very disappointed : $90 on fabric put away ... :thumbdown:

Can you return it and get a refund?

I would definitely contact the merchant to see if you can return them.

Soooo sorry, Is this the future of quality fabric? When you have things shipped from over sea the shop is stuck with it. Good or bad there is no return.

I am afraid there is going to be more and more of this issue.

Agreed, and I really don't think that this is all Hancock's fault. I have noticed quite a variation in quality from the so-called better brands and, as Sadiemae posted, this will only get worse as the cost of cotton keeps going up and manufacturers try to maintain their profit margins.
