We aim to ship your items within 2-7 Business days, although at busier times this may be a little longer.  Shipping is by Royal Mail 2nd Class post and is calculated by order value, as detailed below.   You can choose either Standard Delivery or the Signed For option at checkout.  If you choose the tracked option, you will receive an email advising you of your tracking number when your items have been dispatched.  We have also added a First Class option at checkout so if you need your items a little faster, you can choose this option.  Where postage is free, this will be sent 2nd class.

We have decided to temporarily trial sending International deliveries.  We are aware that the Coronavirus Pandemic, as well as the after effects of Brexit, are still having a significant impact on deliveries being made in a timely manner and this is something that is out of our control.  Customs clearances do not seem to be as slow as they have been for the past couple of years so this has been one of the reasons we have decided to trial sending parcels Internationally again.

We aim to ship your items within 2-7 Business days, although at busier times this will be a little longer.  Estimated delivery time for International Orders is between 5-28 Working days.  From time to time we may use other courier services, such as DPD or UPS, to deliver your items but we will advise you of this by email when your items are ready to be dispatched and a tracking number will be provided.

All International Parcels will be sent tracked at a flat rate as follows:-

     °  Europe - £13.50

     °  USA - £25.00

     °  Rest of the World - £27.50

Please Note:  International orders may have additional fees applied by your Country's Customs Agency. Steel City Fabrics are not responsible for these fees, and we cannot reimburse customers for these fees. We recommend you contact your Country's Customs Agency for more information about fees and to find out if these are applicable to the goods you are purchasing.

Lost Parcels

Royal Mail does not consider a parcel lost unless it has been missing for 10 business days in the UK,  20 business days in Europe or 25 business days for the rest of the World, from the due date of delivery (1-3 business days UK, 3-5 business days Europe & 5-28 business days World Wide depending on destination).  If you believe your parcel has been lost, please send us an email, however, we ask that you to wait the specified number of days suggested by Royal Mail before contacting us.


Parcels must be reported to us as not being received within 1 month of receiving your shipping confirmation in the UK, and within 2 months worldwide, otherwise a replacement/refund cannot be issued.

Incorrect address disclaimer:


It is the responsibility of the buyer to make sure that the correct address is entered at checkout.  Please double check the address provided is correct, as Steel City Fabrics will not be responsible for parcels that have been sent to an incorrect address entered by the buyer, and replacement items/refunds will not be issued as a result of this.


Returns will only be accepted on items that are faulty or damaged.  Pre-cut fabrics (i.e. fat quarter packs, jelly rolls etc) and unopened haberdashery items can be returned for a full refund within 14 days of purchase (28 Days for International purchases), minus return postage costs, unless the item is damaged then we reimburse the return postage costs. No refund will be given on cut-to-order fabrics, unless they are faulty, as these are classed as personalised items.  All items are quality checked by us before they are despatched. 

Please get in touch if you need to return an item within the 14/28 day returns period.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept a return if you contact us outside of this 14/28 day returns period.  Your statutory rights are not affected.  All items must be returned to us in a saleable condition.  We would recommend obtaining proof of postage when returning good to us, or using a tracked service.  Steel City Fabrics cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged during transit. 

Our returns address is 5 Treswell Crescent, Sheffield, S6 2LE.

Refunds will be issued within 48 hours of items being received by Steel City Fabrics.
