    Default Stupid question about ordering fabric!

    Can one of you sewing ladies please help me with a stupid question?

    If I am ordering fabric online by the metre, what is the standard width of the roll of fabric? So if I order 2m in length, how wide will the piece be?

    Thanks so much, couldn't find the answer on the website, I assume its common knowledge to most people!!!

    Most are around 112cm wide. You can get up to 150cm wide. The majority of the time it will state how wide it is.

    I have worked with fabrics for 30 odd years. (yes, i really am that old ) It really does depend and the website should tell you.
    There are usually 3 widths. 90cm, 115cm and 150cm.
    if in doubt contact the business.

    Thanks ladies. I did try to call but they are closed. Will have to wait until morning.

    I haven't purchased quilting fabrics by the m before, only fat q's, so I'm a bit unsure.

    How I long to be able to spend time wandering through the shops without a 2 year old!!!
