I will update this page each Friday, This will let you know which fabrics are in stock/out of stock, and which fabrics have a long wait on them.
Please note that the time waiting periods listed are an estimate guide only, not a strict timeline.
Due To Corona Virus, We are finding that our supplies are coming in much slower than normal, fabric stocks are running low, and our suppliers are doing the best they can to keep up, but will send what they have until they can restock from overseas when things go back to normal. At the moment, most fabric stock is coming in from Zweigart (Germany) via Seamail as most planes have been cancelled, which can take 2-3 months to arrive. Expect longer than usual delays.
From the 31st July:
In Stock fabrics:
14ct Easy Count Aida (No dyeing required)
18ct Easy Count Aida (No dyeing required

28ct Easy Count Lugana (No dyeing required)

Fabrics in Stock, but being cut now and could be out of stock after this dyeing session (I will amend this when the dyeing has been completed)

16ct Opal Aida
28ct Opal Lugana
28ct Opal Cashel
36ct Edinburgh Linen
40ct Newcastle Linen
Awaiting Delivery of these fabrics: (Sorry for the delay, the Corona Virus is causing delays in deliveries of fabrics, it is taking a little longer than usual for supplies to arrive) US stocks are experiencing up to 6-7 weeks for delivery to Australia).
28ct Cashel Linen
Fabrics that are out of stock, but not expecting a long wait time once they are here: (I expect these will return to the In Stock fabrics list very soon, But please note that we are experiencing delays in getting fabrics as suppliers are waiting for shipping containers now instead of planes until the planes start flying from the US and Europe again).
14ct Opal Aida
18ct Opal Aida
20ct Easy Count Aida (No dyeing required)
25ct Easy Guide (No Dyeing Required)
32ct Belfast Linen
32ct Lugana Opal
Fabrics that I am waiting on stock to arrive and have a longer than usual wait due to stock availability and the amount of orders that are waiting for these fabrics. You can still order these fabrics if you are happy to wait for your order to go through the waiting period, which could be anywhere from 4 -16 weeks at the moment (this time will be amended each week as the fabrics are cut and orders are processed).
18ct Aida (4-6 weeks)
28ct Opal Lugana (approx 4-6 weeks)
28ct Lugana (approx 4-6 weeks)
32ct Belfast Linen (approx 4-6 weeks)
PLAIN WHITE FABRICS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE UNTIL STOCKS RETURN TO NORMAL ~ WE ARE EXPERIENCING HIGH VOLUMES OF HAND DYED FABRIC ORDERS WHICH WILL BE OUR MAIN CONCERN UNTIL THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC IS OVER AND PLANES ARE FLYING BACK INTO AUSTRALIA AT NORMAL RATES.
BLACK FABRICS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AND MOST ARE IN STOCK
Does your fabric of choice have quite a long wait and you are in a hurry? Check out these Zwigart pre-dyed and cut fabrics, maybe something in here is more suitable and you won’t have to wait! The Pre-cut range comes in 19 x 27″ (evenweave and linen) 19 x 21″ (aida). Please note that these fabrics are not in stock, and are backorder items, but the turnaround is usually around 2 weeks.
ORDERING FABRICS FOR OTHER DESIGNERS SALS?
As we are not associated with Designers SALs, we do not keep our dyeing times to their start dates. If you are ordering fabric for a SAL We recommend you order the fabric at least 3 months in advance. We can not guarantee we will have your fabric done by the SAL start dates as we are not in any way associated with their SAL sales. We do not take responsibility for having fabrics out for the beginning of Stitch A Long start dates. If you check this page and the fabric you would like is out of stock or has a longer than usual wait period, there will be delays in getting the fabrics out.
POSTAGE: Colour Cascade Fabrics only posts twice a week (days vary). All tracking numbers sent are at time of packing, not at time of posting, please allow up to 48hrs for tracking numbers to register with Australia Post. Australia Post does not deliver on weekends and public holidays (except around Christmas time). Part Orders will no longer be sent separately, the whole order will be sent when the fabrics are dyed and ready to go, or any backorder items come into stock. If you would like your DMC or general stock before any hand dyed fabric are ready, I would recommend doing 2 separate orders, that way postage is paid for both lots to be sent. This will be strictly adhered to from now on. If you have paid parcel postage and I think I can get away with sending the order in 2 parts at letter rate, I will be happy to do that, but keep in mind that will eliminate the tracking. Non tracked letters that go missing are non refundable, as I am not responsible once it is in Australia Posts hands.
PLEASE CHECK NEXT FRIDAY 7th August 2020 FOR ANOTHER UPDATE
