How big is a yard of fabric

How big is a yard of fabric

When I visited a US fabric store (it was in New York) the first time (I was coming from Canada) I was really surprised to find out that they sell fabric by the yard, not by the meter. So I was staring at the fabric trying to figure out – how big is a yard of fabric? I asked the seller and she told me – “oh, it’s 36 inches”. Well, it really didn’t help because I had no idea about inches also. I was used to meters and centimeters. And I couldn’t even Google it then – there was no Google.
By now I am used to it but I know it would be helpful to have a conversion chart so anybody who is looking for answers can Google it and find the solution immediately.
