Can you send samples?

We can send up to 5 Tana Lawn print samples, at a cost of £3 each plus postage. Each sample piece measures 10cm by 137cm (full width of fabric). Please contact us with your sample request, and we will email you an invoice for payment.

We also offer up to 8 plain Tana Lawn swatches for free. Each swatch piece is about 2 inches square. Please make your request for plain swatches in the notes section of your regular website order, or contact us with your specific request if you want plain samples but are not currently ordering.

Tana Lawn samples are usually cut and sent out within the same time-frame as the current dispatch queue (shown at checkout).

Interiors

Interiors samples: a sample piece can be ordered from within each Interiors fabric listing, charged at £2.50 per sample.

Do you do discount coupons or voucher codes?

Although we sometimes run specific promotions in partnership with magazines, most of the codes or vouchers you see on voucher code websites are not legitimate and will not work.
 
Unfortunately many discount/voucher code websites falsely advertise a range of codes for all sorts of companies, including ourselves, which are either made up or merely reflect an existing promotion on certain sale products. Our sale products are available to any visitor to our website, so a code is not needed to receive these discounts.
 
If you have an in-date code from a magazine and it isn’t working, please enquire with us and we will investigate any issues. 

The item I want is shown as Sold Out or Back Order. Will you be getting more in?

“Sold Out” means that we currently have no stock of that fabric or product. However we may be getting more. Please contact us to enquire about availability.

If the item is shown as *BACK-ORDER* or *PRE-ORDER* then you can order as usual but there will be a delay (specified in the listing) until this product is ready to be dispatched. Your whole order will wait to be dispatched until this product is available, so if you need the other items more urgently please place a separate order for them.

How do your Gift Cards work?

Alice Caroline gift vouchers are a great way to send a thoughtful gift to a keen sewer, without the stress of choosing something which they might not need. Our gift vouchers are fully digital and can be delivered to your recipient’s email address immediately or on a specific date, if you choose. Here’s how they work:

  1. Go to Gift Vouchers via the Gifts & More menu
  2. Choose the image you’d like to be displayed in the recipient’s gift voucher
  3. Choose the amount for the gift voucher
  4. Select your preferred delivery date
  5. Enter the recipient’s email address and name. If you want, you can enter your own email address if you would like to receive the gift voucher email and print it to give to your recipient in person.
  6. Enter your name and your message.
  7. Click Add to Basket
  8. Proceed through payment as normal. (NB: In your shopping cart, you can ignore the “Have a Gift Card?” section – this is where your gift card recipient would click, when they spend their card in future). Once payment has been completed successfully, you will then see an Order received screen with your order details and order number. At the same time, you should also receive an order confirmation email.
  9. The gift voucher itself will be delivered to the email address you provided for the recipient, at the time you requested.

The gift voucher recipient will receive an email gift voucher which includes a gift voucher code. This code can be used against any purchase(s) on www.alicecaroline.com, including P&P costs. It is valid upon delivery of the gift voucher email and does not have an expiry date.

Should your gift voucher recipient have any problems redeeming their gift voucher, they can contact us by phone or email and we will usually be able to reply and help within one business day (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm).

What size is a fat quarter/eighth?

In Tana Lawn, one fat quarter is 18” x 26.5” (45cm x 67cm) and one fat eighth is 13” x 18” (33cm x 45cm). We also supply other brands as fat quarters and their sizes are different so please check the listing.

How would you cut a multiple order of fat quarters (FQs)?

By default, fabrics will be measured and supplied as per your order. For example, three FQs will be supplied as 1 half-yard (which you can divide into 2 FQs) and 1 FQ. 

If your needs are different, please add a note in your order. For example, a three FQ order could be cut as a three-quarter yard piece, or a single FQ could be cut as a long quarter (9″ x 54″). 

Can I use Liberty Tana Lawn for quilting?

Yes, you can. Liberty fabric is wonderful for quilting. Super-soft, it’s wonderful to work with and the timeless prints will make your project an heirloom to pass down the generations.

What is the difference between Tana Lawn and Liberty Quilting Cottons?

Liberty Quilting Collections are printed on a 100% cotton Lasenby base, specifically designed for quilters. It is a little thicker and less silky-smooth than Tana Lawn, but shares the same detailed printing of finely-drawn floral motifs.

Can I use Liberty Tana Lawn for dressmaking?

Liberty Tana lawn is suitable for many sorts of dressmaking projects. It’s lovely to work with and behaves really well with a sewing machine. It’s great for dresses, tops, tunics, shirts, pyjamas, children’ wear, tailored linings, and plenty more.

Should I pre-wash Liberty Tana Lawn before I use it?

There is generally no need to pre-wash Liberty fabric before using it in sewing projects as the fabric shrinkage is negligible. However, if your are working with a variety of strong colours, or if pre-washing fabric is your personal preference, it is fine to pre-wash Tana Lawn.

How should I wash Tana Lawn?

Wash at 30 degrees (although I put mine in at 40 with my normal wash and it’s fine). To keep it looking its best use a laundry powder or liquid that doesn’t contain bleach.

Do you recommend any particular kind of thread or sewing needle for working with Tana lawn?

I mainly use Gütermann Sew-all thread, and size 70 sewing machine needles, perhaps switching to a size 80 for quilting.
