In honor of my Great Aunt and the start of spring!!!
Last year, my Great Aunt Gloria gave me a large bag of fabric samples from a mill where her husband had worked. The mill was called Pontiac Mills and in the mid 1800's started producing bolts of cloth under the name of "Fruit of the Loom". There is little page of history about the mill here.
The fabric samples she gave me, that are pictured here, are dated 1963 and 1965. They still have their orginal "sample labels" and information label as well. You can click to enlarge the picture to see the words.
I would like to give away these 6 pieces of vintage fabric in honor of my Great Aunt Gloria who passed away last week. I'm not sure of her exact age, but I know she was close to 100. She is my father's aunt and he is 84! She was the cutest thing and still sharp as a tack. I think she would be tickled pink if she knew someone out there in the world was going to have some of her fabric!
The fabric is almost like shirting or material for sheets. The four striped fabrics are 18"x36" and come in peach, yellow, purple and pink. The purple paisley is 18"x43" and the blue flowered fabric is 36"x42". The last blue flowered material is kind of thin and has the most concentration of flowers at the bottom. They would make cute little aprons or finish the edges of the striped fabric for a set of napkins for Easter.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post to enter the give away.
If you would like to have a second chance, just link this give away on your blog any time this week...then come back and leave another comment.
That's all you have to do! I will pick the winner on Saturday, March 28th.
Good luck everyone and happy spring!!!
