Welcome, our international visitor!

We have had the pleasure of dispatching our fabrics and sewing supplies to many countries around the world. Some of the more popular destinations include the UK, USA, Austria, Belgium, Australia, Germany, Canada, Norway, Spain, Hungary, Gabon and New Zealand. All our clients appreciate the chic value of getting high quality hand-picked stylish fabrics directly from France, and so will you!

We are very happy to greet you

While our site is in French for the time being, you have an option to translate any foreign language site into your own language if you use Google Chrome. If you use a different browser, there is a language switch at the bottom left of every page of our site to achieve the same result. This will certainly make your navigation of our site easier. Admittedly, the translation is automatic and not perfect, but hopefully it will still help you to move around with less difficulty.

How to order and pay

Customers shopping for deliveries to Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and the UK are welcome to use the usual cart and checkout steps as in any online store. The cart page should be able to geolocalise you but just in case these countries can also be selected in the « Expédition » tab to recalculate you order.

If your country is not yet available, no worries. When you see what you like, or just have a question to ask, simply reach out to us at contact@coupdecoudre.fr. Once the list of items and quantities that you would like to order are finalised, we shall send you a PayPal invoice for you to review and pay. You will be able to pay our invoice even if you do not have a PayPal account. PayPal accepts most local and international credit cards in many currencies, even though our invoices are in Euros. PayPal takes care of all cross-currency conversions for you and for us.

We happily work with companies as well as individuals. The same quick and reliable PayPal procedure applies to all, yet for companies we can also issue accounting invoices and accept direct bank payments (such as BACS) in Euros and even cheques. In this instance, it will take longer to fulfil your order because we shall wait until your funds clear before dispatching your items. We shall not accept cheques unless drawn in Euros on a French mainland bank, though.


Delivery is very straightforward and reliable. We dispatch orders Tuesday through Saturday. We shall select the most appropriate international carrier to ensure safety and speed of your package (usually UPSLa Poste or Mondial Relay). Our international dispatches are always tracked. In our experience, international delivery times from France range from a few days within Europe to about a week to the continental US and to well under 14 days to Australia and even New Zealand. We shall agree delivery charge with you in advance (and in most instances split it up with you as well), so there will be no surprises there.

Taxes & Duties

Keep in mind that, if your order is being delivered outside of the European Community (EC), you may have to pay your country’s import duty or other taxes. This is not our responsibility and obviously is not included in the price. We also do not know what these duties or taxes could be, sorry.


We do not accept returns on any cut fabric, ribbons, elastics or trims etc as these are bespoke orders. Patterns, notions and other non-bespoke items can be returned for refund or exchange at your cost within 14 days of receipt of your order. These must be in a resalable condition, i.e. unopened and unused. Please contact us first to arrange return so that we keep looking out for your package and arrange its speedy reimbursement or exchange.

We take utmost care to ensure that no damaged product ever enters or leaves our boutique. Every single order item is carefully inspected before dispatch. Still, should you find a fault with your goods, please contact us within 14 days of receipt of your order and we shall advise you on how to proceed.

Getting in touch

Should you have any questions, please contact us at contact@coupdecoudre.fr or through the form below. We guarantee you a reply in under 24 hours 7 days a week.

We are fluent in French, English and Russian. For many other languages, there is Google Translate.

You are also welcome to give us a call on +33 (0) 9 81 98 99 79 during business hours Tuesday through Saturday. Please note that this is a standard French domestic number and so international connection charges may apply on your end. Please check if in doubt.

Contact us without delay – we look forward to helping you to get what you want, not what your local shop may have, for your next sewing project!
