What is "Fabric width"?
Fabric width refers to the distance across the fabric perpendicular to the selvedges, not including the selvedges. For Fat Quarter, fabric width will be halved, overall size is usually about 18"x22"/45cm x 55cm.

If I buy more than 1 unit, will my fabric/ribbon be cut as one continuous piece?
For fabric, if "a quarter of a yard(FQ)" is chosen as the basic unit, it will be cut as individual Fat Quarters; if "a half of a yard" is chosen as the basic unit, it will be cut as a continuous piece.
For ribbon and trims, it will be cut as a continuous piece, except for precut pack.

Will there be restock for fabrics?
Usually there won't be restock, as Japan textile manufacturer usually print limited amount of every design, once the quota is reached they will stop printing that design. So do check out the "almost gone" section for fabrics that you like and grab them before they are gone.
