Make a Statement with a One Yard Memo

written by Kaitlyn Green

When selecting the perfect fabric for a project, you want to find something that will make a statement. Whether it’s a bold print, a luxurious cut velvet, or a stunning multi-colored texture, you want to show off that fabric for a real “wow” factor. Sometimes, a small memo sample doesn’t do that gorgeous fabric justice, especially when it’s a pattern or print with a large repeat.

Anna Elisabeth and Greenhouse Fabrics offer a larger sample option in addition to free memo samples and free sample books: A One Yard Memo for $15, the perfect tool for client presentations. Sometimes you need a larger sample to see, touch, and inspire.

One Yard Memos are best used for showing off large-scale prints, but they make a major impact with patterns and textures alike. The larger sample size allows you and your client to live with the fabric in the space, to drape it and really see and get a feel for it as part of your design. Plush velvets and decorative prints come alive with the movement and feel of a One Yard Memo.

If you just want to use the One Yard Memo for your client presentation, or the customer ends up selecting a different fabric, you are welcome to return the sample for credit. If you return a One Yard Memo within 30 days, we are happy to offer $15 credit, which will be issued to your account once we receive the returned sample.

Here are the steps for a One Yard Memo return:

  1. Return the complete full-yard sample within 30 days of the original order date
  2. Include the packing slip from the original order
  3. Mail back to us
  4. A credit for the full-yard sample only will be credited back to the original credit card used once we have received the fabric return
