I've never ordered a mystery bundle from FabricMart so I thought I'd give it a try. I got it really quickly. There's a nice black knit, a nice teal and black striped knit, a rather sheer black with tiny white polka dot some kind of polyester, I think, a funky big print that I would never use and a navy polyester type fabric that to me is more of a lining. Overall, for the money I'm pretty pleased with what I got.

Ooo. I just ordered one along with some sale wools. I'll try to remember to report as well.

(Teal and black would be perfect for me....)

Thought I would bump up this thread rather than post a new one. I got MY first mystery bundle today. Before ordering it, I spent a lot of time combing through threads about them wondering if I'd be happy with it. Fabric Mart put them half off- so I got 2 10 yard bundles for $15. I am VERY happy with what I got. A single piece of the quilting cotton they sent me (and I'm a quilter) would cost that retail...

I detailed (well, sort of a lot of it is unknown) what I got here.


A few of the wool cuts are too small to use, one of the fabrics is awful, the bright yellow WAY too bright, but mostly, this is good stuff.


I also got the $15 twenty-five invisible zipper bundle, they sent me 27!

Someday that bright yellow will be perfect for something. Something for a child, a costume, the lining of something. It will have its use.

Now you all have me curious. I've never ordered from this company before. What size samples do they give? Is there enough to sew a garment with?

Thanks!

The fabric cuts are all between 0.5 and 1.5 yards.

For me, this is enough for almost all tops, and some skirts.

There are some of the cuts I won't be able to find a use for - half a yard of wool for example, but then half a yard of a stretch knit can be a shirt.

My bundles were half price- $7.50 for 10 yards, so even being able to use one piece of fabric would make it worth it. At $15 for 10 yards, it is a bit pricier than I'm willing to gamble on. But if you buy $75 a lot of time (like now) they run a free mystery bundle special.

Lucky you, I recognize the Anna Maria Horner fabric you got in your bundle! :)

I prefer the 10 yard cuts, and generally buy those. Out of the last 6 I've got, only 2 of the fabrics were awful for me (but my mom loved them).

At retail price that piece of fabric alone covers the full cost of both bundles...

I am afraid to order the 10 yd with minimum of .5 yards I already have plenty of .5 yard peices I don't know what to do with. They used to have a bundle with minumum 1 yard peices and up to three I liked that one at least I can make something out of everything they send.
