*Shipping larger packages from Canada to international destinations is unfortunately costly. We do not mark up our shipping rates and offer our customers the lowest rates we can find. We offer an economical “surface” shipping option in some regions, which can take anywhere from 4 to 16 weeks to arrive. This is a long time to wait, we know! If you require a quicker delivery, please select one of our air shipping options. 

Please note: We are not responsible for transit delays that may occur due to weather, customs, or other unforeseen circumstances. If you think your package may be lost, don't worry! Get in touch with us and we'll be happy to work with you to find it, or work out a credit or replacement. Please note that untracked 'small packet' shipping options are uninsured and are non-refundable.


We want you to love your new fabric order! If you have received an incorrect item or there is a mistake in your order, please email us at info@blackbirdfabrics and we will make things right.

All sales are final. Once an order has been placed and the fabric has been cut, we cannot accept refunds or exchanges for other products in the store.

We do our best to ensure the colour of the fabric online matches as close as possible to the bolt in the shop. We shoot our photographs in natural light and agonize over the the exact shade and colour description in our photos and fabric listing. However, due to the vast colour variances in every monitor and mobile device, we cannot guarantee the colour will be an exact match to what you see online. Requesting fabric swatches is free of charge and is the best way to make sure that you are getting exactly the colour and texture you want. If you are worried that a fabric will not last in the shop while you are waiting for the swatch to come through your mail service, just check in with us to confirm the shop quantity and probability of inventory when requesting your swatches.

Our care instructions come straight from our distributors or fabric manufacturers. Please follow the care instructions found on the label and in the product listing as we are unable to accept returns for fabric that has been damaged in the washing process or laundered incorrectly.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can email us at and chat with Laura, our queen of customer assistance.
