Hello! I’m currently working to get my supplies and materials organized. Most recently, I tackled my fabric stash. I have some pieces of vintage fabric I’d LOVE to know more about. I thought your collective knowledge might be the best way to get some direction, information and answers.
.These fabrics are all marked, Peter Pan Fabrics, Inc on the selvedges. From what I can determine, they’re cotton. They’re also incredibly light weight and semi-sheer. In addition to being printed, they’re textured. The lines, or in some cases, grids are raised.
I’ve tried to do some research online to see if I could find more information about them, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot available. Based on what I was able to find, Peter Pan Fabrics, Inc. did file a series of copyright infringement suits against several clothing manufacturers, starting in 1960. And, it appears, they may still produce quilting cottons today.
I’ve found some listings on Etsy and Ebay selling fabric boasting the same maker’s mark, but they’re all flat finished, and heavier. I’m pretty positive these aren’t quilting cotton, but I can’t say for sure. Is there a name or classification for textured fabrics like this? Do you have similar fabric in your stash? Do share! I’d love to know more about them. If you have any leads, please leave them in the comments here or on my blog
I really appreciate your help on this one! You’re the best.
