Special Shipping Note for All Fabric Customers
Our shipping rates are 'close estimates' only, and are based on order-value. We may recalculate your actual shipping costs as necessary depending on the amount of fabric you order, the package weight and size, and the destination of your order. For instance, Coutil weighs nearly 1 pound per yard, so even 2 yards will have a higher shipping cost than our 'standard' shipping-rate.

'By-the-Bolt' Shipping Notes for International (non-USA) Customers
If you are ordering any of our fabrics 'By-the-Bolt', your shipping options may be somewhat limited. For all non-USA destinations, the USPS imposes package-size and weight restrictions, and other carriers may impose other restrictions. You should contact us for shipping options, estimated cost, and limitations.

For many non-USA destinations, it may actually be less expensive to order 'by the yard', at the 'per yard' price. But please note, the fabric will simply be folded into a box, as neatly as possible. For some destinations, we may have to cut the fabric into more than 1 piece, and ship in more than 1 box.

Coutil - Domestic (USA)
60- to 63-inch width, medium-weight, 100% cotton.
Herringbone weave, used for bodice and corset lining. Very high quality, made in the USA.
We have found that domestic (USA) coutil is better suited for ballet bodices than the imported variety. The domestic fabric has some 'give' to it, allowing for 'breathing room'.
Minimum Order: 1/2-yard, any one color
White, per yard $12.90
Black, per yard $17.50
Ordering more than 5 yards? Please note that coutil orders are cut into pieces of not more than 5 yards (ie, if you order 15 yards, we will cut 3 pieces of 5 yards each).
Available in Black, White only

Coutil By-the-Bolt - serious savings!
Rolled-on-Tube, full-width
100-yard bolts, +/- 10 yards (actual bolt length may range from 90 to 110 yards).
Full bolts only, allow an additional 2 weeks for delivery.
We have no control over the actual bolt length - depends on what the mill ships us.
And NO, we will NOT alter the length of the bolt as shipped to us.
White, by-the-bolt $9.34 per yard  -  ($934.00 per 100-yard bolt)
(range example: 90-yards = $841, 110-yards = $1028)
Black, by-the-bolt $12.74 per yard  -  ($1274.00 per 100-yard bolt)
(range example: 90-yards = $1165, 110-yards = $1402)
Shipping Notes - Please Read:
Coutil weighs nearly 1-pound per yard! A 100-yard bolt weighs 85-90 pounds.
Bolts are shipped rolled-on-tube, full-width (size is approx 62in x 9in x 9in). Bolts are wrapped in several layers of heavy-duty plastic, and heavily taped.
Regardless, you should expect some possible minor damage to the ends and/or outer layer (but not enough to affect use).
As of November 2012, UPS Ground
  to nearby Virginia is approximately $70;
  to across-the-country California is approximately $110;
  but to across-the-country Alaska & Hawaii is approximately $325 !!
International: As of November 2012, UPS Ground to Victoria BC (Canada) is approximately $125, but shipping to other continents is very expensive (several hundred dollars).
The shipping rates stated above are estimated examples only, as of November 2012. Your actual shipping cost will definitely be different. Shipping charges may change at any time.
