    I'm trying to finish a quilt I stopped working on 2 years ago. Theres 2 diff. fabrics I need more of.
    I looked in the local fabric stores and couldn't find any.
    So I came home and looked at the selvedges for the manufacturer info and got on the computer.
    One I found, at Bernatex.com, although their website doesn't have a way to buy the fabric. So I'll have to find it in another store online hopefully..
    But the second fabric I need has no info along its selvedges. No color dots, no manufacturer, etc.
    I'd never noticed that before.
    How can I find out who manufactured this fabric?
    And I thought all fabric makers put the info along the selvedges?

    I have several that do not have any info, and a couple that only have a name and "printed exclusively for" but not enough info to do a easy search if I needed additional pieces.

    Good luck looking . Is it possible to add another fabric since you can't find any info ?

    Maybe post a pic and someone can help you

    The Bernatex fabric's info is:
    the Classically Home "Aspen" collection by Marianne Elizabeth.
    #2916-72 Poppies Pumpkin
    That's what it says on the selvedge.
    (although the website says that's the old item number.
    The new # is 291672B)
    I sure wish I could just buy it through the Bernatex website. How odd that they don't let you.

    I'll have to try to upload a picture of them (easier said than done...lol)
    Here's a pic I found online of one of the fabrics but I can't find anyplace to buy it!!!
    Apparently they only sell to stores. Grrr!

    I have a ton of fabric that doesn't have any selvedge info. Gggggrrrr!!!

    I hope you can post a pic and someone here can help. Even with info, if it's so out of date, by manufacturers timeline, the strongest possibility is someone may have it in their stash. Hope it turns up. Wish I had some to help.

    I always start all my fabric searches with Quiltshops.com. I have ordered online from a bunch of these shops. Since the search always returns a bunch of shops that have a fabric I am looking for I can quickly compare prices. Here's the link-
    http://www.quiltshops.com/

    Don't use the "item search" on the page that comes up, that one will give you thumbnails of just fabric. Click on the "item search" on the top of the links on the left of the page, that will give you a list of shops and all the fabric within your search criteria. I find it gives me a greater chance of hitting what I am looking for. Just put in Aspen and see what happens.

    Good Luck. :)

    Try this or just do a Google search to see if you can get it at a lower price elsewhere.

    I guess after looking at this again the real issue is that some selveges have no info. I don't have an answer for that. I have run into that problem a couple times. Makes me crazy!

    why don't you write Benartex and ask if they know a shop that carries the fabric and where you can get it. Or send email to Marianne Elizabeth.

    Thanks Holice, I hadn't thought of that.
    I guess I'm just too angry for not buying more at the time. thump, thump, thump.... Hear that noise? That's me kicking myself...
    Edited---just sent an email to her. Thanks again for the idea.
    Edit #2---just sent email to Bernatex. Now I'll just have to cross my fingers. (thump thump thump)

    And here it is again a bit cheaper per yd. I can vouch for the first shop. I don't know anything about this one.

    I just bought 2.5yds. (I'm waiting for an email confirmation saying they have that much in stock).
    If I could I'd send Tom Selleck to your house to give you a big kiss!

    You guys are amazing! :thumbup:
    Rachel, how on earth did you locate an unknown piece of fabric?
    Anyway, I've already put a bid on the ebay fabric. It's not long enough but it's a start.
    I guess my "searching" ability leaves a lot to be desired.
    I googled different words, diff phrases, etc. and I never could find either fabric.
    But thank you both a thousand times!
    I'd send Tom Selleck to kiss you too if I could!

    :) Happy to help!! Hopefully you can find more of the green, the seller says it's Marcus Brothers Textiles, but it looks like an older line as I can't find it anywhere by googling them ....

    Yes I've already gone to the Marcus Bros Textile website. Can't find it there. Bad sign I'm afraid.
    But now that I know the mfr. hopefully it'll help.
    thanks again!
