    So far, I've had good dealings with Larry and Magna and will continue to buy from them. I received a material sample today that I asked for in an email late Last Thursday.

    Sorry to hear some of you had problems.

    Taz is being far from truthful. On the automated service we typically are providing same day or one day service. I am personally inspecting every roll prior to it shipping.
    On the roll of black cordura that he purchased I noted a defect and I did offer to return the payment in full. Taz did not want a refund and we did have to hunt down a different roll and he only $7 additional even though there we shipped about 10 yards additional.
    Admittedly, there was a lag in our response since we are very busy at this time, but we did ship him a lot more fabric than he paid for in order to make him happy and we see no reason why he so negative.
    If you look at the comments from all of the other customers lately you can see both our fabric and our response time has been excellent. Also, I want to thank the members of this forum for the continued support that they have been providing.

    I was recently a member of one of the group buys for the ACU 1.1 ripstop. It is great material and I have already made a double layer hammock with it. It took a while to get but I attribute this to the group buy with all the repacking / reshipping.

    I would be much more willing to buy from Magna if shipping were not so crazy expensive. For me its not important that it gets shipped on a roll. You can fit quite a few yards of material in a medium sized USPS flat rate box for $11. I have ordered from Noah Lamport and for a $5 cutting fee they were able to get 25 yards in one of these boxes. This seems reasonable to me.

    Larry I don't know what your inventory turnover is like but it seems like this may be an opportunity to move some goods out of the warehouse

    Welcome Larry! Seems your company has been mentioned around HF for quite some time, with high hopes of inexpensive fabrics for our burgeoning DIY community. Some of those hopes have been realized. I hope that more will be.

    I realize this is an old subject, but I just wanted to mention that I have had great transactions from Magna. All of the fabric I received is just what I expected, even the third quality stuff. Mr. Fink has always been a great help.

    Once you realize that these guys buy huge amounts of roll fabric and turn it right around to the public at great prices, it makes sense that they don't do custom cutting. That costs more and takes a lot of time to do. Working for one of the major upolstery suppliers to the wholesale market, I used to spend entire days cutting short pieces of yardage (less than a roll) for customers.

    Keep it up Larry, I have two more orders in the chute right now.
