My beautiful fabrics have arrived today. I love them, thank you. I just sat and looked at them for ages. Gorgeous wrapping also. I will turn them into hexagons for a little bag. As soon as I can I intend to order more. I am new to Internet shopping but you have made it so simple for me.

Hi Sandie, Thank you very much for sending the parcel with my fabrics in so quickly. I received it on Tuesday but haven’t had time to let you know until now. They are lovely and exactly as they appear on the website. I’m very happy with them! Thanks again, Kirsty

Thank you for my lovely order, so beautifully wrapped as always. You are lovely to do business with, Amanda.

Dear Sandie, For the first time I bought a large item from you, the wonderful trade box. It arrived today, brought to my house by a jolly messenger. No harm has come to the box, since you had wrapped it in several layers of bubble plastic and a sturdy cardboard box.
It has been, as always, a pleasure to do business with you.
All the best to you, I shall return,
Lise Kirk

as always the best place for really beautiful vintage fabric.

Lovely fabrics. Very prompt service! Rag Rescue is always my first call when I’m on the lookout for quality vintage or antique stuff. Thanks again Sandie!

Thanks again for another fantastic selection of fabrics! Completely stunning with super quick delivery and fantastic service! Thank you so much!

Thank you for the gorgeous fabrics and the reminder of my childhood (the Bambi coat hanger!) that arrived the very next day after I ordered them this week! Great service, and the fabric is even prettier than it looked in the photos – I’m delighted!

Thank you again for my beautiful fabric. The fabric arrived the next day, as always beautifully wrapped, and as always wonderful condition.To me this is the best website for vintage fabric. Jo

The French senses fabric is gorgeous! So sumptuous! It arrived on Thursday with the other fabric, which are also lovely. It was like unwrapping a present and service was really quick.

Sandie My package arrived today and it is so much more Christmassy in reality than on the website. Can’t wait to use it at my Embroiderer’s Guild Christmas meeting. We’re making a crazy patchwork cushion. As always delivery was prompt and it was like unwrapping a present! Clare

I’ve just received my third parcel of fabric from Rag Rescue; like the previous two orders two, the fabric was beautifully wrapped, fresh, clean and just as delightful as their pictures on the website. I have many happy hours browsing Sandie’s treasure trove – the hardest thing is limiting myself to what I buy! Sarah

I was delighted with the lovely package of fabric that arrived today. Beautifully wrapped, extremely fast service, and the fabric were exquisite. Will definitely visit your site again and purchase some more lovely goodies.

Dear Sandie
I was delighted with my order of fabric and laces. They are exceptional. I design wedding headpieces and these antique laces will add that “something old” for the bride. Your presentation of the website and your sent parcels are a joy. All the special touches are greatly appreciated. I look forward to ordering again with you. Maggie from the beautiful Blue Mountains, in NSW, Australia.

Absolutely delighted with the beautiful fabrics I have purchased from Rag Rescue. Brilliant website and excellent service too. I am so glad to have found you and will definitely be back for more! Thanks Sandie,
Best wishes,
Helen D.

The subject field only allows me to choose one Subject; however, my feedback is relative to all…. I cannot praise Sandie highly enough for the absolutely wonderful product portfolio, service and easy website. It is a total joy to find a site like this on the Web. A niche market that provides an eclectic mix of fabulous fabrics and other superbly top quality products. I am in love with Rag Rescue and fully intend to be a very regular visitor and buyer! Thank you Sandie!

Thank you so much, yet again, for such lovely pieces of material. They will be used in a project in the future but in the meantime I am enjoying the different possibilities they offer. Your service is second to none! Have a Happy Christmas. Kind Regards – Pip

I’m delighted with the beautiful vintage fabric scraps. It is not always easy to find vintage fabrics where I live (or even online!) and I’m delighted to have found this online treasure trove. The price was reasonable. The shipping was amazingly quick – I received it the next day after my order (placed late in the day!) I will definitely be returning to shop at Rag Rescue! Thank you.

Just received my order and I am absolutely delighted with everything. The vintage pieces of fabric are gorgeous and I am looking forward to making a quilt with them as the central panel! Many thanks for the prompt delivery too. Maggie

Very belatedly, I am leaving a BIG thank you, Sandie, for the gorgeous items that I purchased a few months ago. They travelled promptly and safely across the world and were packaged as usual with such loving care. It is always such a treat to receive your treasures. I appreciate the efforts you make to track down such lovely pieces of history. Your site gives me endless pleasure – I will be back – Pip, New Zealand.

They’ve been chosen and freshened by someone with an eye for beauty and a willingness to restore what inhabited other eras to where it/they can find yet another life in those of us around the world who discover on Rag Rescue the perfect “ingredients” for our creative visions.

Sandie, Thank you for such a quick and efficient service. Such a well presented and easily navigatable website – so much choice. Received my purchases this morning – such care has been taken in the presentation so intricately packaged. Most definitely worthy of repeat custom.

Hi there, As a fashion/textiles student, I was thrilled with this website…so handy for fabric sampling and ideas! Everything was fantastic, from the website, the service and quality of goods…beautifully presented and sent with care. Will definitely use this website again and have recommended it to all at my uni. Thank you so very muchly x

The quality of the goods was fantastic and absolutely ideal for my crafting needs. Promoting recycled or vintage materials is the way forward in ecologically sound crafting too. The site is well laid out and photos are accurate as they can be, no qualms. The service is wonderful and the goods delivered in lovely packaging, a bonus being I can reuse that too! Looking forward to a long future with Rag Rescue. Fantastic.
