Fabric Check In and Due Diligence
When a new bolt of fabric arrives in the workroom it is important to roll it out and check in as soon as possible to see if it is the correct fabric, the yardage is correct and there aren't any flaws. As I am rolling it out I also measure and mark the cuts so that I don't have to roll it out twice.
Yes, it takes time to do this but it will save time and money in the long run. What if you don't do this and start cutting immediately? It could be the wrong color way, there could be flaws or the yardage isn't correct. Once the cuts are made, the fabric can't be returned. That's a costly mistake that could have been avoided.
