Online Shopping

Q: Can I buy 0.5 meters?

While you can still only buy full meters through our Shopify store, we have created an awesome request form for 0.5m cuts. That means you can get any denomination of 0.5m (i.e. 0.5, 1.5, 2.5...) cuts that you need. We do ask that any full meter or other products still be purchased through our regular shopping channel. Find the form HERE.

Q: I ordered a pattern/product online for local pick up - when will it be ready for me to come get it?

If you order online, your order will be ready for pick up on the next day that we are open - easy peasy! A quick reminder that we are closed on Monday, so orders placed on Sunday will not be ready until Tuesday.

Please make sure you have received a ready for pick up notification email or text before heading down to the store.

Orders placed for local pick up will be held for a maximum of 1 month and may be subject to a restocking fee, please see Delivery Methods for more information.

Q: Your filters are acting kind of

Our filters are a bit different in that they only show one category at a time, so if you select two filters that don't overlap on a product it won't show you any products. Here are some tips if you get stuck:

  1. Hitting the reset button at the top of the left hand filter search section. Then select the 1 filter that you wanted to refine by.
  2. Using our search bar near the top right of our website to search for your term, with deadly accuracy! 
  3. If you are looking under 2 or more filters and nothing is coming up that probably means that we do not carry a product that meets your requirements or we are sold out of it. Feel free to give us a call or email us to double check and be added to our contact list for if/when more stock comes in.

Q: Can I use my gift card online? 

If you have an in store gift card and would like to switch it to use online please fill out this FORM and we can do a one time exchange to an online gift card.

Q: Which direction is fabric stretch percentage measured along?

If it does not specify otherwise, fabric stretch percentage is measured on the cross grain (from selvedge to selvedge). If it is noted that the stretch is along the straight grain then there is only stretch from the cut end to the cut end. 



Q: Can I return cut fabric or notions? What is your return policy?

We do not accept returns on any fabrics or other products that have been cut to measure (this includes end of bolt or roll fabric and notions). We understand that it can be hard to colour match or know the weight of a fabric when ordering online, so if you are unsure please get in touch with us before you order and our awesome team can give you more info. 

If you discover a flaw in your cut fabric please contact us and we will work with you to find a solution. Please note that once fabric has been washed we are unable to do anything, so please check fabric before washing it. 

Item in unopened, sell-able condition, with original receipt are eligible for a full refund within 90 days of purchase! All items will be inspected before we issue any refunds. Items that include printed patterns (i.e.: paper patterns, pattern magazines, books, etc...) are final sale. 

Q: I need to return a shipped order, what do I do?

First thing you need to do is send us an email with your order number and what item(s) you are looking to return. A RICK RACK team member will get back to you within 24 hours to discuss the return, please do not send back items before speaking with a team member.

Refunds will only be issued once the eligible item(s) has been received by RICK RACK - please note that return postage is not provided by RICK RACK.  

USA Returns: Any items returned must be shipped back through USPS and any additional fees (customs, brokerage, etc.) will be deducted from your return amount.



Q: I dropped off my sewing machine/serger/scissors for servicing. What happens if Jerry is unable to service my machine/scissors?

If Jerry isn't able to tune up your machine or scissors he will offer you advice on what steps to take next. We will offer you a refund for the servicing that was not completed; please note that refunds will not be issued until the item has been picked up or you have discussed the disposal options with a RICK RACK team member.

Q: I want to submit a print job. How do I know how many pages my pattern PDF will be?

Q: I want to register for a class, but I am not sure I have the required skill set. Where can I find the skill level descriptions?

Q: My friend and I want to register together for a class. Are we able to do that online?

Yes! Just make sure that you both fill out the class form so we have all the correct info for both of you.
