    Default What does FBY Waiting Mean?

    Hi...I ordered some fabric recently. Three of the 4 items very quickly went from cutting to cut to paid in the order details. However one stalled in cutting for several days and now says FBY-Waiting. I am not in a terrible hurry for the fabric, but would love to know what that means. It would be great if your FAQ page had a list of abbreviations and what they mean.

    Fabric by the yard. Waiting to be cut. I think that's right.

    OK...i get that the abbreviation is Fabric by the Yard. However, I ordered 4 items...one precut and three different yardage pieces. Very quickly, two of the yardage pieces were labelled ordered, then cutting, then cut, and finally paid. However, one said ordered for a couple of days, then it said cutting for a few days. But today, it said FBY-waiting. I want to understand why it went from being cut to waiting.

    I hear your frustration. The girls don't really come in here. Maybe Al will stop by and clarify the wording.

    Did you every find out what it meant or did your order ship? I'm in the same boat now. One fabric is now FBI - waiting. . .

    All the other went through the whole cycle.

    Thanks
