There are three main steps to adding a listing to your store:

  1. Naming your listing and uploading a featured photograph.
  2. Describing your fabric listing (this includes attributes such as: color, size, fabric company/line or any other information that would help a buyer to make a purchase).
  3. Setting shipping costs and rules.

For step-by-step instructions for setting up a listing check out our guide on How to List Fabric. And don’t forget to visit our tips for photographing fabric!

SHIPPING

Shipping is free to buyers. (i.e. all shipping costs are calculated into the price of the fabric as listed by the seller.)

The FeelGood Fibers shipping estimator will provide an approximate shipping cost based on USPS package weight and dimensions. Shipping costs will have a range depending on where in the USA the package is shipping to. Additionally, this chart can provide additional information regarding flat rate shipping and package weight/dimensions.

This is entirely up to you! We suggest taking the average estimated shipping cost for your fabric and building that into the price of your listing. For example, if you are destashing a bundle that you value at $25 and the shipping estimate is between $5-$9, we would suggest including $7 for shipping costs. Thus the bundle would be listed at $32.

WHAT TO SELL ON FEELGOOD FIBERS

FeelGood Fibers is your premier source for secondhand quilting fabric. We accept designer quilting fabric in like-new condition.

At this time, we do not accept any patterns, books, notions or items other than quilting cottons and the fabrics that the home sewist might use for garment making.

If your fabric doesnt have an identifying selvage but you know that it is quilt-store quality fabric, you can list it by designer (if known) or as “designer unknown” on the dropdown menu when prompted.

Vintage sheets (and similar items) that are primarily made of cotton and could be used as quilting fabric may be sold, but listings may be subject to approval. Email us at hello@feelgoodfibers to get a conversation started!

Yes, prewashed fabrics may be sold, but must be clearly designated as such in the listing.
