Local Pick Up/Shopping in Person
Local pick up for online orders or in person shopping is available at our showroom located at 229 St Clair St, Chatham, Ontario. Please order online and wait for the email that your order is ready.
Our showroom is currently closed for in store shopping. As Water Tower Textiles is run by a single mom, and staffing has been a challenge for everyone in 2021, us included, painting, setting up and staffing our new Chatham showroom is taking a while. We looking forward to seeing in store soon.
If you would like to add to your order that hasn’t shipped yet, there is an “Add to My Previous Order” option at checkout so you are not charged shipping twice. We are more than happy to do this for you, though during a sale, this option is not available.
If you would like to combine orders with a friend, please order everything on one invoice without requests for special cuts. Please note that although we charge flat rate shipping, we do not pay a flat rate ourselves.
We offer bulk discounts on most fabrics, calculated automatically when the qualifying amount is added to cart. Flat rate shipping applies, however wholesale order receiving greater than a 10% discount may be reassessed additional shipping charges. Bulk discounts are intended for a single buyer, not combined orders. We cannot guarantee a continuous cut on orders over 5 meters. Orders larger than 5 meters may be in more than one piece, or may include a flaw for which we give extra at the end.
We also offer full rolls (40-90 meters) at a greater discount. Please contact us for availability. Full rolls may incur additional shipping.
Please look over your fabric right away before you wash it to ensure there are no problems with your order. If you are not completely satisfied, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your order to discuss a solution to the issue. Cut fabric is not refundable except for our error, or previously unstated factory defect. Irregularities within an 2″ of the selvage edge, including small holes, are customary.
Colour Variation & Matching
We have done our very best to try to represent the colour as accurately as possible, but please remember that colours appear differently on each monitor or screen. We cannot be held responsible for colour variations due to different monitors or screens. If you have any questions about a colour, or would like to know if something matches, we are happy to help
Due to slight variation in dye lots, fabric from one roll may be slightly different than the next roll of the same colour. If the colour change is significant, we list it separately, such as “Olive 2”. Slight variation between dye lots is expected and will not be refunded.
Ask away and we will do our best to answer.
