    Printable yardage chart

    I've come across a couple of online fabric shops that want you to use decimals instead of fractions.

    4 1/4'' = 1/8 yd = .11 meters

          Because in Canada we use the metric system. When I would shop in the US, I would automatically ask for a metre instead of a yard. Don't get me wrong, it is good to have the conversion chart when shopping Canadian/USA stores.

          I thought after that might be why. I looked and couldn't find a location, but her patterns are in US dollars. It's a a nice blog.

          I've had to learn metric because I've gotten into beads and everything is sold in mm. I associated at first. Like 5mm is the size googly eyes I bought for a kid project. So that size bead is too small. lol I have a cheat chart that helps like 6mm =a little under 1/4''. I don't mind learning it. They should of taught it in school a long time ago though.

        That is of course a conversion from inch to metric. I'm not sure why we are still using the "crude" inch system in this country, especially fractions. Metric system of measurement is so much more precise than the imperial system.

          I once knew a guy who was a machinist. He said that the metric system did not work well for machining, but that measuring in 1/1000 of an inch was more practical. My brain just doesn't understand measurements that small.

        This is from a FAQ on a site I visit

        Q: Can I order fractional yardage?
        A: Yes, use your decimals:
        Yardage Conversion Chart
        1/8 = .125 1/4 = .25 1/3 = .333 3/8 = .375
        1/2 = .5 5/8 = .625 2/3 = .667 7/8 = .875

        Q: Can I order just half a yard?
        A: Yes and no. Our computer system can't figure out why you don't want a full "unit". Please call Customer Service at xxx-xxx-xxxx for assistance.
