    I would prefer that the manufacture put its name on the selvage instead of in the main part of the fabric.

    Sometimes I forget that it's where it is, and then I have the name where I don't want it.

    I have noticed that too... I don't like having to cut that much extra off the selvedages...

    I don't mind cutting off a little extra because I save them. I'm planning a Rocky Road to Kansas using all selvages. Perhaps if I wasn't doing that I'd mind, yeah, I'm sure I would.

    I noticed that for the first time last week.. I just thought I was using older fabric . I have so much I don't remember when/where I bought it :oops: Maybe this is a new thing :roll:

    I noticed that the lable side of the selvedge is often quite big now. I think I cut one off a Joann's bolt that was at least 1" that was not usable. Fortunately, the other side was ok so I only lost 1/4" there. On top of that, the fabrics are seldom more than 42-43 wide anymore.

    That's a big selvage! I love, use and collect selvages, but I see your point. Tell David and his textiles to calm down.

    Is it this particular brand? I have never seen that on any of mine, but I do not have this brand.

    I've seen it on other brands. This is just the one I came across today.

    i wish they would put their name on their fabric at all. half of them print all the way to both edges and you don't know who the heck made it.

    I have some like that. VERY annoying when you really need as much as you can across, like planning on getting seven 7" pieces out of it and then you run into THAT.

    I do want the maker and the collection on the selvedge too. If I get things mixed up I can see that a certain piece goes with the rest of the collection I have.

    I have some fabric with the name printed randomly in the design, I didn't notice it until I was piecing the top!
