I have been ordering fabrics from you for a few years now and I have always been amazed at the speed of delivery to me in the States. So I shouldn’t have been surprised that you’d already prepared my first order! Thank you for indulging all my second guessing and changes of mind. I’m making a skirt upin your fabric and I have been obsessing over the lining colour! I’m sure the navy will be perfect.I do want to say a big thank you to you all for your beautiful quality fabrics and excellent service - I am a big fan!!
Very excited to be returning to making my clothes again, aged nearly 68, with a new Bernina. It is giving me such an enormous lift to start again on something that I thought I'd given up.... returning to my youthful clothes sewing is such a JOY!!!!Thank you for such great patterns that seem to be easy to make and easy to wear and full of zest for life!!!!thank you x 1.000.000!!
Must say I am extremely impressed with your service.
I ordered your pattern as I have such fun making your garments, following your instructions. I realise I am an average sewer, but after I finish your garments I realise they are a cut above my usual results.
My Arkie Shirt and Bailee Shorts bundle arrived today. Cannot believe it came so quickly, I only ordered it yesterday. Fantastic service again.
I just wanted to say that I'm from the uk, and was on holiday in Sydney over new year. I've previously ordered a few bits and pieces from you to be shipped to the uk over the last couple of years, and so took the opportunity to pop into the Surrey Hills store while I was there. I'm so glad I did. What a lovely shop - so airy and light, with great funky music playing and really helpful folk working there. I bought a pattern and some gorgeous fabric and can't wait to get stuck into them when I get home. Thanks.
I cannot thank you enough for your amazing service. The material arrived on Tuesday morning and is perfect!
I bought some wool in July for an Oslo Coat and I am just so impressed with the quality of the material. Thank you for your commitment to quality sewing supplies and pattern making. It's an absolute pleasure to work with your materials!
Hi there,Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful selection of fabrics you have in your shops. It’s always a pleasure to come to your shop :)
I just finished making the TessutiOslo Coat. It looks great! I want to thank the pattern maker and instruction writer for providing clear and detailed instructions - including the photos for your patterns - it was a delight to make this coat! Greatly appreciate the effort and energy that must go into providing patterns for the home sewer.
Thank you very much indeed for responding so quickly, I shall now cut the dress out later on today. I'm going to do them both as both versions are very practical. To-date, I've made up five of your patterns, some of which I have done more than once. For me personally, your styles are absolutely perfect. Elegant and easy to wear. I have lost count of the number of compliments I have received for each of your styles. I haven't bought a ready-made dress for years and I doubt if I ever will. I am 70 years of age by the way and your styles are timeless.
Not an inquiry, just wanted to tell you how much I love your patterns and excellent instructions. Thank you!
My package with awesome patterns and notions arrived at record speed!I'm excited to plunge in and test the patterns; I'm sure I'll be ordering again soon!
Hello! I'd just like to send you many thanks for the Tessuti Apron pattern. I tried it out and it turned out beautiful! Thank you so much for leaving free patterns on your site - it is very much appreciated!
I’ve been meaning to drop you a line for ages to say how much I love your patterns. I’ve made lots of clothes from Tessuti patterns and I think they’re all brilliant. They’re easily the best instructions of any pattern company out there and the designs could have been made for me. I live in the UK but if I ever had to up sticks I’d head to Sydney to be near Tessuti! Many, many thanks for your wonderful products.
Oh thank you so much! What a gorgeous package, with minimal packaging and everything looking so tempting to dive straight into sewing!Now I know you guys send stuff so quickly and so beautifully, I may never need to leave my house again!
I want to thank you so much for your patterns, specifically for the clarity and detail that you have put into the instructions. The step by step guides, along with photos of what it should look like, are so, so helpful. As someone who has never formally learnt garment making, I feel that I have learnt transferable skills from each Tessuti pattern that I have made. It feels like you are sitting with me talking me through each step as I sew. They have been great for building my sewing ability as well as my confidence. My very favourite Tessuti pattern is the Milenda Dress- I now have four - two in linen and two in a cotton print - as well as two sleeveless pinafore adaptations. So - thank you! You do a wonderful job.
Thank you for the quick process of my order received today! I continue to love all your fabrics and can only say how appreciative I am of your personalised support. I placed an order for some linen and received a phone call to say you didn't have the amount I ordered available. I was then contacted by a lovely lady to offer a substitute. Well I just love what I received and so quickly! I will continue to shop with your store. Thanks so much for such great customer service.
What a fantastic service. I ordered my fabric and patterns on Wednesday, got a call from you on the same day to clarify address details in New Zealand, and my parcel arrived this morning (Friday morning). Love the fabric and patterns. You make online shopping so easy - I will definitely be shopping with you again. Thanks so much.
I just had to write and say what a pleasure it is to work on this pattern. I am not the most advanced sewist in the world and everything is communicated so beautifully and clearly. I’m using fabric from some old curtains I found in a thrift store and velvet to line my hood and pockets. I’m putting the cuffs on my sleeves now and have to go back to it. Just wanted to drop you some feedback mid-sew!
Yet again you have proved to be very efficient with my order to NZ which arrived this morning. That's why l like to order from you apart from the fact that I like your fabrics!
Just wanted to say THANKS for your fantastic service and for using DHL to deliver mail order parcels. Ordered yesterday morning and arrived in Auckland from Sydney 24 hours later – as have all of my recent purchases.
I have just completed my fourth pair of Tamiko pants and I wanted to let you know how excellent they are in every way. The fit is perfect, the pattern goes together so well, and your instructions are a joy to behold! Although I've been sewing for over 50 years, I always learn something from each Tessuti pattern I try. Other favourites are the Rae top and the Athina top. Your fabric is also beautiful and your service - second to none. I recommend you whenever I have the chance. Thank you for a business you should be very proud of.
Thanks so much! My LOVELY fabric arrived today; I am so pleased with it! Thank you for the speedy postage.
Thank you, Tessuti! My parcel arrived already today and the linen material is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m so excited and can’t wait to start. As soon as my Milenda Dress is finished today I’ll start on the Felicia (long-sleeved) pattern in this gorgeous fabric.
Keep up the good work! (I’ve already recommended you from Europe to the US). Warm greetings to you and the beautiful city of Sydney.
And many thanks for your fantastic service. Ordered my parcel late Tuesday, it was shipped yesterday and I received it today a day ahead of schedule. That is just amazing. So thrilled with the fabric and pattern too.
I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my 90 year old mother. Mum recently placed quite a substantial order with you for some beautiful fabrics. She was delighted to receive them so promptly, beautifully wrapped with a lovely note enclosed. She has asked me to pass on her thanks & to say you have won a loyal client. She is already researching her next order!!!
I'm emailing you today to share with you what a great job your team is doing with online orders. I placed an order Saturday 19th June and it arrived at my post office on Tuesday 22nd ready for pickup. Super fast delivery which is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the email regarding my order. I received my order was very surprised at the boiled wool I ordered. The colors are so much deeper, richer and just beautiful in person! I am very pleased and will definitely order more fabric from you in the future. Your patterns are very detailed and look easy to follow; can’t wait to make the Amara Vest out of the rich cranberry red boiled wool I purchased and the Verona Jacket out of the beautiful deep teal boiled wool. I love the patterns and the boiled wool this winter will look stunning. Thank you so much!
I am SO glad I stumbled on your patterns! I had been looking through traditional pattern books for over 2 years for this type of a silhouette, to no avail. When I typed "lantern dress pattern" into Google search for the umpteenth time your store finally came up! (Technically what came up was a blog post of a woman who combined this pattern with another where she mentioned your store was the source of her original patterns. Google analytics picked it up and pushed it out. Scary in a way but good for me.) I bought the Eva and the Lily patterns immediately.
This piece of washed linen had been sitting in my fabric pile for 2 years because I felt it needed a pattern with more pieces since I wanted to "engineer" some of the less desirable pieces out of the print. It's 100 degrees already here and that called for an over-the-top splash print summer dress. I also have several other pieces of washed linen, all good choices for the Lily. But I would make this again as a jumper for fall/winter in a lightweight wool, as suggested in your text for the pattern.
I technician for an engineering firm so I have access to large format printers. Everything was perfect. The pattern fit perfectly in an XL. Not so much as a thread of alteration. Thanks again. I'll be back.
Thanks so much. Your shipping is always blazingly speedy but this is pretty remarkable! I can’t wait to make the shirt.
Hi there, just want to say thank you for the fantastic service. My patterns, thread and gorgeous fabric arrived in Perth today- only three days after I ordered it. Amazing! Can't stop - got some sewing to do!
Just wanted to say that during lockdown I have been re-acquainting myself with dressmaking. I recently bought your Bella Dress pattern and I am so pleased with the result. The instructions were super easy to follow (particularly the bias binding tutorial - an area that I have never quite managed to get right before!) and I have an almost professional looking complete dress. Thank you so much. I shall be looking out for more of your patterns now.
I was in Sydney today happily wearing my Rae Dress in a beautiful teal linen also purchased from you. Anyhow, was wandering through the QVB to Town Hall to catch the train home...... and a woman stopped me and apologised for staring at my dress, loved the beautiful fabric and the style. I explained that it was a Tessuti pattern and fabric and she said.. ah, that explains why I have never seen it anywhere in the shops! So thank you Tessuti, I felt gorgeous, looked fabulous, was wearing a designer original and that is as good as it gets!
I would like to thank you for sending my order so promptly What a service! It was invaluable as I was having to self quarantine. I have finished my dress and love it! And am now making one for a friend. I’ll be looking for a new project for myself very soon. Once again, many thanks.
A big thank you, not just for the beautiful fabric I ordered, but also the way it was packaged! The compostable bag is in my green bin, the paper wrapping is recycled and the ribbon is in the sewing notions box. So often, when ordering online, goods come with way too much packaging, especially plastic. Well done!
Hello Tessuti Fabrics!!! I just received my first order of fabrics from your Australian website facilities and let me say.....ALL the fabrics are as weighted as they suggested on your website, are as vibrant in color as they looked on your website, are as high a quality as they were presented on your website, and are as beautiful as they looked on your website!!! I am so so very pleased. Also, thank you for the labels and ribbon - they won't go to waste. Thank you.
I received my fabric this morning, shockingly fast delivery! I am still waiting for some items I ordered with Canada to arrive. The fabric is stunning. I'm so looking forward to sewing with it. I hope to visit your store in person someday. Many thanks.
Thankyou for my very prompt delivery. I’m extremely impressed with the quality and price of my purchase, not to mention the speed and beautiful way the fabric was wrapped. I’ve even signed up for your newsletters (which I never do!). Very impressed. Thank you.
Just to let you know that my fabric arrived today. Not only are your fabrics the best, so is your customer service. Thank you so much.
I wanted to thank Tessuti fabrics for a fast delivery and very good customer service. The descriptions and colors are very accurate. It is my second purchase and both times my expectations were perfectly matched.
I have attached a photo of my latest creation with some of your beautiful linen in the Lisa Dress pattern. I wore it today - 37 degrees in Adelaide, so a good test, in which it performed admirably. Lovely & light, & lack of creases -perfect.
I am constantly amazed at the speed at which you respond to orders, and how quickly they get to me in regional NSW. But, I think this response to my query re Tokyo Jacket hits the “super service” level!! Thank you so much for the downloads, and the incredibly fast response. I appreciate your service and look forward to the new pattern and fabric. Thank you.
Just a note letting your team know that there is one more happy customer here. By the way, the delivery was super fast!
I have received my hard copy patterns and could not be happier with them. They arrived beautifully packaged and the day after I ordered them. Thank you so very much.
I just had to write and pass on my thanks to your staff for the excellent service I received last week when I ordered a Point Presser and clapper online. I received this parcel within a couple of days and it was exactly as I wanted, not only that, but it was wrapped with bubble wrap and paper with a lovely touch of ribbon and label. It was such a surprise, as it is rare to receive such excellent service and a little bit of something extra. I just had to write and let you know that I appreciated what you had done. It made my day. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
I just want to say thank you for being so great. A few months back, I downloaded the apron pattern and it was so fun to make. The directions were clear enough for a beginner to follow. I was able to knock it out in a weekend. Then I ordered some fabrics from you on September 29th and they arrived TODAY (Oct 5th)!! Even without the time difference, that is so amazing!
Anyway, thankyou very much for my beautiful fabrics. I am sure to be back again. Stay safe!
Thank you SO much. Only ordered two days ago. The patterns arrived this morning and are brilliant. You obviously take great pride in your product - the clear patterns, the instruction books and the presentation. It felt like my birthday! Can’t wait to get started with them.
I have just started sewing again after 35 years and as I live in Hobart there is a limited choice of fabrics, I started to look online for somewhere to purchase quality fabrics. I bought some ponti fabric and was impressed by the quality of the fabric. The ponti pants pattern which I used is a perfect fit for me as well. Today I received my second order of five fabrics and again very happy with them. In addition the service is spot on, deliveries arrive within a few days, so thank you Tessuti, I only wish I could visit your shop personally.
I can’t begin to explain how excited I was to receive this beautifully wrapped package filled with gorgeous fabrics, threads & pattern today. I am absolutely over the moon! Thank you so much for your exceptional service & quality products (as always).
My parcel arrived, and even faster than anticipated. I can’t thank you enough for the amazing service! Much appreciated and wow, do I ever LOVE these linens.
I ordered some fabric from you four days ago. It arrived in California today. The colors and quality are all perfectly beautiful. Thank you so much for your prompt and service. I ordered some buttons 17 days ago from a vendor in California. I still have not received them. Now that I know how easy it is to order your fabric, I will be a loyal customer.
Got my order today. Thanks for having it delivered so quickly. Love my new beautiful linen prints.
Thanks so much to all of you providing an online service to us here in Melbourne. I ordered only a few days ago, and received my beautifully wrapped pattern and fabric today. It’s amazing how COVID can make you more appreciative.
Hope you all stay well and know that your work is appreciated.
I just wanted to let you know that I am thrilled with my order of fabrics and patterns that arrived in the post today. In particular the Into The Forest technical polyester is gorgeous and I can’t wait to make it up!
Thank you for brightening up my life in semi-lockdown,
I just want to say how beautifully packaged my online order that arrived so fast today. I commend you all on the care you take. You are all so wonderful.
Dear Staff at Tessuti,
What a treat it has been to shop with you! Thank you very much. I just loved the packaging in the compostable bag, the brown paper wrapping (reused from your end and now by me too!),
all finished off with the flourish of the ribbon and little tags to put on my completed garments! I must also commend the person who added the elastic so effortlessly at the last moment - Matthew!
Well done all!
A huge thank you for such wonderfully efficient service, I have just collected my beautifully packaged parcel from my mail box. My expectation with the current delays due to covid-19 were that I should expect to have to wait at the very least a week to receive this parcel. I recently ordered items from a major retailer and paid for their express courier delivery and waited three and a half weeks for the single item. Just goes to show that small independent retailers such as Tessuti can time after time deliver far better service than big nationals and multinationals. Thanks and well done and hope that your team are all keeping safe and well.
To be honest I was doubtful my gift certificate would arrive to its recipient in a timely manner…all things considered, and a delay will have been totally fine.
However, you moved the unmovable and, transported as if by magic, the gift vouchers arrived at her door last Friday less than 48 hours after purchase. She was super excited and very happy.
Thankyou Tessuti people.
I’ve been a long-time reader of your blog and recipient of your newsletter, but placed my first order from Tessuti just this past weekend. I’m really happy with my purchase. The fabric is beautiful. It was so well packaged and the delivery was incredibly fast, particularly in this time of Covid-19 - three days from Sydney to Canada!
Thank you so much! The order was amazingly fast! It arrived at 9.05am this morning, even though I ordered at 3.30pm yesterday. Thanks for all your efforts in ensuring people get their 'fabric fix'.
Just a quick note to say thanks for my order; again, your delivery is blazingly speedy (particularly if the US Customs folks are on their game). It looks like someone added a piece of Vilene to my order; if you need me to add some payment for this, let me know. I love Vilene and we can't get it here in the US. In the meantime, please know that I've bought many of your hard-copy patterns and I love all that I've made. Indeed, my biggest problem is tearing myself away to make any other patterns. I hope you'll continue to keep hard-copy patterns in stock, and I look forward to any and all additions to the line. If you eventually find a US firm to handle marketing for you, that would be great. But frankly, I enjoy ordering directly from you in Australia.
Just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You ’for my order which I received in double-quick time and which is perfectly lovely in every item. So glad I found you on my visit to Sydney last autumn, when I was able to browse in person both of your outlets there. Happy memories as I sit and sew. Your service is impeccable and your goods of highest standard!
Just wanted to give you all a big wrap....ordered my fabric Tues afternoon, arrived here for collection Wed morning....sewing by Wed night!! As always the fabric is of supreme quality. I have never been disappointed yet. Thanks for the amazing service.
I just wanted to thank you for your lovely patterns that arrived last week and which l am just about to start on now. I am very impressed not only with the super fast delivery but the quality is second to none ! The explanations are excellent as is the quality of the paper, cannot sing your praises enough and just to say once again Thank you for your patience with me and all my enquiries.
I just want to say thank you so much for your great service and incredibly fast shipping. Normally when I order fabrics from abroad it takes weeks and weeks before I get it. This time it shipped in a couple of days, it is unbelievable, and a very positive shopping experience for the customer.
