Q: Do you allow local pickup?
A: Yes we do! Just select "Local Pickup" at checkout to avoid shipping charges. You will receive an email when your order is ready for pickup. We are open for pickups Monday-Friday 9am-2pm. The store address is:
So Sew English Fabrics
4040 Calle Platino Suite 118
Oceanside, CA 920586
Q: If I place multiple orders and pay multiple shipping charges, what happens?
A: We combine pending orders when possible.
Please note: due to how we print your order(s), cut & pack them, THEN make the label- if you place an order after we have initially printed, then any orders placed after we have printed may not be combined.
IF our processing time is fast, we are not able to hold orders for them to be added to, your order will ship as soon as it is ready.
IF our processing time is extended due to high volume (especially during sales), order combining may be limited.
We pack orders into the smallest package(s) possible. We refund ALL shipping over $1.
Q: How many yards can I fit into a package?
A: This depends on the thickness and width of the fabric you ordered. Here is a list of the MOST you can fit into each size box (depending on fabric thickness). For more specific questions about your order, please contact us.
PADDED FLAT RATE ENVELOPE (PFRE): up to 4 yards *$7.55 domestic
MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX (MFRB): up to 7-10 yards *$12.85 domestic
LARGE FLAT RATE BOX (LFRB): up to 14-20 yards *$17.65 domestic
*INTERNATIONAL RATES: We ship with USPS products. International shipping can be expensive, but please be aware that we only charge what USPS charges. We, unfortunately, do not make these rates or have control over them.
*PLEASE NOTE: Orders of 40+ yards are over our calculators max so shipping is not charged until we can get an exact assessment of the cost of shipping. In these cases, we will contact you when we have an exact shipping total for you.
Q: When does SSE typically stock new fabrics?
A: We have started having a regular stocking on Thursday nights at 6pm PST. Please join our Facebook group for further notifications and sneak peaks to our listings as they go fast. www.facebook.com/groups/sosewenglish .
Q: Do you offer wholesale pricing?
A: Yes, we do! We offer wholesale on any purchase of 10 yards of one particular fabric. The wholesale price varies per fabric and cannot be "stacked" with other discounts or coupons. If you would like to purchase bolt (80-110 yards- bolts vary by amount) of one particular fabric, please contact us for additional wholesale costs. We are working to update all listings with this information for ease of use. If you have a question about a particular fabric we have not yet updated, please send us a message!
Q: Do you offer military discounts?
A: Not at this time.
Q: Are your fabrics all CPSC lead and flammability compliant?
A: No, not all of our fabrics are compliant. We do carry a small selection of compliant fabrics. Look for the CPSC compliant icon on the listing photo, or under Knits http://sosewenglishfabrics.com/cpsc-compliant-certificiate-download/
