    Question Please help me, who makes these fabric? Have picture, no info on selvage...

    Hi all,
    I was wondering if anyone can tell me who is the maker of these fabrics? Or any info? Unfortunately no info on selvage...I am thinking its probably from the 1990's..but not sure.

    Thanks for the info...I actually have some with just the stripes and hearts, too...but forgot about them until you mentioned it...This should be my sign that I have too much fabric!! I am thinking I have 2 yards of each one of these (haven't officially measured them yet). I am doing a clean out of my fabrics and am thinking I will sell them...I have thought about what to make with these for a while...I just don't think I will be getting to it, tho. Maybe someone will come along who can tell me the manufacturer...or if Wal-mart just made their own back in the 90's...Also I need to go and see how much I have of the stripe/heart and if it coordinates to see about selling it with these..Thanks so much!

    I believe it is a Cranston Fabric. I have the navy with red hearts and that is what it is.

    I would guess VIP, Peter Pan, Marcus Brothers, or Springs.

    Thanks to you all. If i decide to sell them, I am thinking I will post the pics and the info I have; making sure to say I am not certain of the maker, etc.. I really appreciate all the help!

    Do a burn test on a scrap to see if it's 100% cotton or a blend.
    If it contains poly, the smoke will be black.

    I used to have the stripe with hearts, and I believe it came from K-Mart and I think it was VIP fabric. There is a slight chance that it was Cranston. I say this because I didn't shop at WalMart in the 90's. I did shop a lot at Minnesota Fabrics also. Does anyone else remember them?

    A lot of the nicer fabric I have purchased at Walmart thru the years has been Cranston VIP.
