Well I decided to venture into knits and heard this was a good place to buy them

As a New Customer you get a 10% discount code when signing up for Newsletter - I did but was Unable to get the code to process in my shopping cart.

Thinking I would check out and send them the code and info for them to take OFF my order - They replied that they would ONLY do it for my "next" order -- Well I'm very disappointed and probably should NOT have checked out in hopes they would FIX it - BUT I know that there will BE no 2nd order as I'm so mad on the first.

Is this an ongoing issue with them??

Very disappointed

I had the problem in the past with another coupon, and I never finished the order with them.

There's too many other companies I can shop with IMO, and at the time, I found the same fabric I was looking for somewhere else.

I did just try the code since I never had an account made there and it worked fine on my end this time. (I'm still not going to place an order today though, lol).

I bought from them once, and won't do it again. The knits were really crummy. They came pretty stiff, and I decided to wash them, thinking there was too much sizing. No, they were that stiff.

As a serious lover of sewing knits and constant knit-sewing wannabe-enabler, I am sorry to hear your first venture into purchasing knit fabrics was so poor.


I highly recommend Emma One Sock's 11oz rayon/lycra knits. Fabulous customer service. She even accepts returns if your order isn't what you expected, and her fabrics are simply superb.

Please don't give up on your venture i to the wonderful world of sewing knits!

I, too, have ordered from Girl Charlee and have had great success. The knits were wonderful and no problem with customer service!

Well I was MORE unhappy they wanted to apply my discount to my NEXT order -- Got my knits preshrunk - and trying to squeeze time in to join Lynn in her New to Sewing Knits!! 2 Dresses and 1 top I've planned

Just an FYI I was NOT happy they wouldn't do the discount on my original order -- Silly I should have cancelled out - Called and fixed the problem before finaliing oh well even when you are uhh Older lessons learned eh?

They do feel nice, one is nicer than the other so we'll see!

Very excited to learn on this type of fabric.

and thanks for the other Website rave reviews! If I get to loving knits, that is where I'll give my business!

My experience with Girl Charlee has been limited but I'll throw it out there. I'm constantly looking for knit prints so I took a look at the website. I found some cotton lycra solids that I was searching for and asked for swatches to check the weight before I bought any. They promptly sent the free swatches (4) and didn't charge for shipping which I was really pleased about. Unfortunately, the cotton lycra was too thin so I never ordered any.

I hear PR members talk about the website and so I'll occassionally have a look around. I simply look at it as another source for knits.
