I probably sound like a broken record on the subject, but what happened today proves my point perfectly why you should be ordering fabric samples before purchasing.
I have been looking quite a while for the perfect fabric for my kitchen windows and after looking at different colors and patterns, I decided a fabric with a white background with navy design would be perfect.
The two fabric samples above are pictures of the same fabric. The background looks plainly white, don’t you agree? This is the sample I received today in mail:
Even through the computer, you can see how OFF white it is. And the navy is plush and thick. Not what I was expecting. Here is another example:
Notice the white background. And here is the actual sample of fabric:
Can you see how OFF white the actual fabric is?
Imagine if I did not worry about getting a sample and ordered 14 yards of it for window treatments? What if it were for a client? You can not return it!
One more example to drive this info into your brain:
I love, love using fabric and do not want to discourage anyone from ordering fabric online. Just be sure to order that sample to save yourself from any headaches! Thanks everyone!
