    "Not intended for commercial use"

    What is up with fabric that is marked in the selvage "not intended for commercial use". I was going through my stash yesterday and found a piece of fabric with that marked on the selvage. I think it was given to me, or bought as part of a garage sale group of fabrics. It seems kind of foolish to me to have these kinds of limitations on cotton fabric. Many, many of us make things that are for sale. What was even more astonishing was the fact the the quality of the fabric was horrible. It did not have a nice hand, it was stiff, thin, and rough and that is even before I washed it. It also said something about Spring industries on the selvage. I saw another piece at Christmas time that had the same restriction on it, and again, the quality was less than desirable. Your thoughts?

    We have the smallest of small community fairs and 3 years ago someone associated with Disney had a woman's booth closed down and everything even remotely connected with Disney fabric confiscated. amazing.

    There are a million fabrics, just use something else...

    I don't buy anything with a Disney brand on it anymore. You think Walmart is the company to detest?
    Got fabric?

    then they shouldn't be selling it commercially! odd but new ideas on keeping quilters from profiting from anything I guess.

    I don't buy that fabric because I reckon that once I buy it, it is mine and I quite frankly resent the attitude of those who want you to buy their fabric but then want to tell you what you can do with it. It is not fair.

    I don't have any fabrics with that on it. If I noticed it, I would not buy it.
