    Another Question about Aunt Grace/30's Reproduction Fabric

    What's the "generic" name for these fabrics? Do you just say "Aunt Grace" and that's an umbrella for all the different fabric lines/collections? Or do you say "30's Reproduction"?

    And, FYI, I just ordered some Feedsack, Aunt Grace and 30's Playtime from Etsy. Can't wait for it to arrive!!

    At our shop, we say "20's/30's". Aunt Grace is a specific label by Marcus Bros. However, some people incorrectly use the term to refer to all reproduction fabric of that time period.

    I too am in love with this fabric. Sad for me, my sewing machine died at the end of May and I have not yet replaced it....but when I do I am headed straight for the 30's repro prints. Show and Tell, don't forget to post a pic of your finished project

    I refer to it as 30's reproductions as it is a line of fabric by Marcus Brothers...30's repro's covers it all....I love it have a large collection going but only buying 1/4 yards so I can get lots of variations...have enough for a king but not enough for alot of left overs...60...1/4 yards so far..think I may stop at 100
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:
