Sales Tax

Do I have to pay sales tax on my order?
Pacific Fabrics is required to charge sales tax in Washington State. Sales tax will be calculated at the time of checkout based upon the shipping destination of your order and will be applied to the total amount of the order including shipping and handling charges. If your order is being shipped to a location within the state of Washington you will be charged sales tax. If your billing address is in the state of Washington and your order is shipped to another state there will be no sales tax charged.

Can I have my order shipped to a different address than my billing address?
Yes! Please be aware that sales tax will be charged if the shipping address is in the state of Washington.

Order Status & Re-Orders

How do I check the status of my order?
You will receive an email confirmation when your order is received and a second email when your order is shipped. If you have any other questions about your order, please email or call our Web Order Department at 1-888-659-0929.

What if I need more of what I just received? Will it still be in stock?
Hopefully! We sell hundreds of yards of fabric each day through our stores and web site and sometimes we buy everything a manufacturer has left! So if you are in need of more, first check to see if the item is still on the website. Use the item number or key words that describe the product to search for it. If you can’t find it there you can use the Comment Form on our Find Us page to let us know what you need and we will do everything we can to find it for you.
