A Huge "Thank you" to Karyn for the prompt delivery of my fabric. This was my first order with Dance Fabrics Direct 2015 Ltd since they were under new ownership and are now based in Renwick (I am in Auckland) I was unsure how long my delivery would take. Well I ordered my fabric yesterday afternoon and I have received it this morning. Very happy. Beth

Morning Sam,
 I am so impressed with your service and product.  My friend tagged me on Facebook on Friday your new shipment of stretch lace.  I firstly face booked you asking how much per meter? I got instant reply.  I then phoned about how to purchased and got excellent instructions.  I joined your VIP club and made my purchase in Friday.  I also received $5 off my purchase.  I am more than extremely impressed.  Everything was easy when purchasing on your website thank you.  Got home Monday and there was my order WOW!!! Exceptional service.  Love love the three laces and colour.  And thank you very much for the samples.  Can't wait to purchase again.  Highly recommend. 
Kind regards Carolyn

Thank you Sam.
The fabric has arrived and my gymnast is every bit as thrilled with it and the thought of the leotards it wil be made into as I hoped she would be.
The colour match between the two purples is fantastic. I know the comments on the website said they matched, but the proof is in the seeing, especially with the fabrics being so different(crushed velvet and dotty foiled lycra) :-) .
Regards, Kathryn

Hi Sam,
Fabric arrived the day after I ordered it…. Stunning service, but that is what I have come to expect when dealing with you.  You have set yourselves a hard act to follow!  Since I have used the same fabric (220gsm cotton lycra) for my daughters’ leotards for some years, I know that the quality is great – garments keep their shape, in spite of many washings, although I do dry them indoors so that they don’t fade.  The original ones are still going strong, but we need more now that the girls are dancing 6 days a week.  Have recommended you as a fabric supplier to several people in the past, and no doubt, will again.
 
Thanks,
Marcia

Hi Sam
 Received my eagerly awaited parcel Saturday morning - not too bad I guess seeing it came from New Zealand to Aust!  The fabrics were gorgeous and i have already completed the nominated costume with them.  I cannot find fault with anything at all to do with the service - from the outstanding website, easy transactions, postage, notifications and the fabric itself.
 I'll definately be using you again.
 Thanks

Hi Sam,
I like the fact that you emailed me when my order was shipped.
I was delighted when my package arrived speedily.  The fabric is lovely, and I am pleased with my purchase.
I also liked the email followup to check the parcel arrived.
One thing I found useful on another website is where there are fabrics/colours that would work well together in a costume are listed on the website to make it easy to put a costume together.
Do you know whether you will have teal/dark turquoise stretch velvet in stock?
Regards
Shannon

Thank you so much
 we received our order a day after putting it through to you and as it was to a rural address we were extremely surprised and grateful for your prompt service and delivery. Also that the postage was adjusted accordingly and not as much as what the website said!!! Overall it was an excellent product and excellent service and we were very appreciative and have already been sharing with our friends about your online service.
Kind regards

Hello Sam
 
Apart from a couple of minor hiccups last year concerning your shift and new staffing I can't think of anything bad to say about your service !
 
Service is always efficient , prompt and above all reliable . Because I do my business with you on line I need to know when I am busy and perhaps working to a deadline that the fabric ordered is actually on its way . Every step is monitored and if there is a problem you let me know .
I also appreciate the fact that I can check the web site while the client is here for availability  and I know it will be up to date.
 
The lycra fabric that I am buying from you is always neatly and squarely cut . The cost of the fabric per metre often means that I am buying the absolute minimum that I need ( having prepared my pattern pieces ) and a poorly cut piece can present serious problems .
 
I make a lot of gymnastic training leotards and the girls , particularly the younger ones , like to choose your brightly patterned lycras.
 
I have had a number of occasions over the years to ask questions seeking advice and have always had clear and helpful replies .
 
I hope you find this reply helpful and encouraging , keep up the great service !

Hi Sam,
 My order arrived this morning. Thank you so much for the prompt service and also the contact between order and delivery. Thank you also for your flexibility regarding my order.
I am delighted with the fabric - exactly what I wanted!
You have a new committed customer!!

hi there
The fabric arrived safely and very promptly.  I will be happy to shop online this way again.
Two things, however:
The parcel was sent to the billing address, not the delivery address; the mesh is nice and strong so will be ok for most of my needs, but it isn't as fine or soft as I was hoping for so I'm still on the hunt for a finer, full 4-way stretch mesh to match the mesh already on I'm halfway through making.  Do you have anything softer?  It really has to drape... 
 thank you
Kathryn

Hi there,
 
I find Fabric & Things to be reliable and efficient; I know I will get my order promptly and that I will be called within a day or so if there are any problems. The fabric quality is always of a high standard, and there is a good range to choose from. The one thing I'd love to see improve is a greater selection of stretch lace, as at the moment it's only black and white, and I find it quite difficult trying to source other colours. 
 
Kind regards,
Charlotte

Hi Sam,
 Thank you, I have received my order and the sample of the power mesh. 
 The fabric is lovely and just what I wanted. The delivery time was fantastic and I think that your delivery charge is good.
 I will definitely be ordering more fabric from you as your pricing and selection is very competitive.  I was originally referred to you (a few years ago) by Pauline Boyd and each time that I have had fabric from you I have been impressed with the quality of the fabric and friendly, helpful service.
 I will recommend you to anyone looking for fabric.
 Cheers

Hi Sam

My order arrived safely this morning, thanks.  As with my previous purchases, the speed of the delivery was fantastic, because I only ordered it on Tuesday afternoon.  I made a leotard for one of my daughters in this fabric some time ago, and she loves it so much that her twin demanded one too.  Now they both want more so they don't have to wear their shop-bought ones.  They say that the fabric is more comfortable than their bought ones because it is highly stretchy, moves with them well, and doesn't get as sweaty.  It is good quality, stands up to all the washing, and still looks good after lots of use.
Thanks very much.
Marcia 

 

Hi Sam
Yes material received the very next day!   I was amazed as we live in the country, but then I always get your parcels straight away.   I wish everyone was as efficient.   I am very happy with your products, website etc and enjoy receiving your emails.   Your service has always been spot on.

Cheers Pauline.

 

Thank you very much.  My order arrived this morning and I'm stunned at the speed of your service.  It is faster than if I had bought at a shop because I wouldn't have been near a shop before this afternoon.  The product looks great and my girls are pleased with the colours.  A better colour range would have been good, but they didn't both have to have the same colour (they are twins), so that was enough.  Next time they need new swimming togs, I'll look at your website first.  Now I just have to find the time to do a pattern and make it up.
Thank you,
Marcia

 

Hi Sam
 You're a star!!  Thank you so much I have contacted Sharon this morning. Wonderful service above and beyond! Especially when I see your email came through at 11.44pm last night when you should have been sleeping!
Kind regards

Jen Needed a sold out fabric so we put her in touch with another customer who had bought it previously.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for your prompt response!

I did receive your email about the free shipping & it definitely did encourage me to make the purchase through Dance Fabrics today.

I would love to receive more gift offers in the future. I make ice skating costumes for my grandkids and as orders occasionally and would love to be able to offer clients more variety at more reasonable prices (some of my clients are not able to pay very much for their costumes & end up choosing cheaper options). Any savings I can pass on would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Dear Sam,

Today I received the chiffon and organza, fantastic, only ordered it yesterday! I would just like to take this opportunity to say what a fantastic service you have provided. We were having trouble sourcing the fabric for wedding drapes and big bows for decorating the aisle and needed to think outside the square, your dance fabric website appeared on a google search and the rest was too easy.

Again, many many thanks. I will have no hesitation in using your business again and recommending you to others.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Sam and Ron Whelan for the last 3 years.

It is lovely to deal with business people that (as corny and old fashioned as it sounds) are willing to, and do ‘go the extra mile’ for customer satisfaction.

They are very supportive and helpful when I require advice about fabric.

I look forward to visiting their updated website.
