How Much is a Yard of Material?

Answer

By literal definition, a yard of material will be nine feet squared - 36x36 inches. However, when you are buying fabric from a store, the length of the bolt of material will vary. One dimension of a store bought yard of fabric must always be 36 inches, or it cannot be considered a yard - but the other dimension could be 45, or even 60, inches.

The good news is that you almost always get more for your money when buying at a store; the bad news is that you will often have to cut the other dimension yourself if you do require a true yard of fabric.

A yard of material is the same as having three feet or 36 inches of material. Most places that you buy material from will measure it for you.
