Deep-dive into a beloved fabric from the past: Feed Sacks is here! (+ giveaway)

Feed sacks are the perfect example of a utilitarian product turned into something beautiful. Author Linzee Kull McCray explores the history of the humble fabric in her beautiful book Feed Sacks. This is a reprint of a previously out-of-print book from our friends at UPPERCASE—now back in print by popular demand!

Feed sacks range from plain cotton sacks to exuberantly patterned and colorful bags that were repurposed into frocks, aprons, and quilts by thrifty housewives in the first half of the twentieth century.

In this softcover volume, extensive imagery and at-scale reproductions of these fabrics create an inspiring sourcebook of pattern and color—544 pages of images and information offer a welcome visit to the days of yesteryear. Take a look at the table of contents to see what’s in store!

    

Patterns not included.

We’re thrilled to introduce Linzee as our guest writer today:

———————————————————————————————

Linzee McCray here. I’m a writer, quilter, and fabric designer. I first learned about feed sacks 10 years ago, and not long after I wrote a blog post for Etsy, where I was a regular contributor. The post got more than 200 comments, and I realized that I wasn’t the only one interested in feed sacks.

I did what writers do when they’re fascinated by a topic: I kept researching and writing about it for various publications, including UPPERCASE magazine. A few years later, UPPERCASE publisher Janine Vangool and I decided to collaborate on a book. (Janine is in Calgary, Canada, which accounts for the spelling of “colourful” in the book’s subtitle.)

I interviewed people who had sewn with and worn feed sacks in decades past, and Janine and I identified vintage photos, newspapers, and advertisements for use in the book. We also worked with collectors and museums to gather images of items made with feed sacks and took photos of our own growing feed-sack collections, as well as those of other collectors. And then Janine worked her design magic: we had so much to share that the book wound up at 544 pages!

Feed Sacks: The Colourful History of a Frugal Fabric covers topics from picking cotton to the patriotism of sewing with sacks during World War II to feed-sack sewing competitions in the 1950s. Throughout, there are interviews with people who remember feed sacks as a part of everyday life. Talking with them was my favorite part of writing this book, and I love the stories, quilts, and items of clothing that people still share with me. One friend told me about her 90-year-old grandmother poring over the pages, looking for fabric prints she remembered from childhood. (That takes awhile, as there are more than 850 images in the book!)

I am delighted that Martingale is reprinting this book—it’s been out of print for more than a year. If you missed it the first time, I hope you’ll ask your local quilt shop or bookstore to order you a copy. And if you have stories to share, I always love hearing them!

Here’s what quilters like you are saying about Feed Sacks:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“I love this book. It has a good history of the feed sack. There are pages and pages of them and also many photos of women and children wearing their feed-sack clothing. I make 1930s reproduction quilts as a hobby and this book makes me want all the fabric!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This lovely book was so fun to read (and to look at). If you love coffee-table books or cultural history books, you’ll enjoy this sweet one. There are 850 different fabric patterns printed in the book, and I could just imagine all the clothes made by mothers in the 1930s and 1940s and beyond. There is information about all the companies that produced feed sacks—to hold grain and corn to voting ballots. Crazy to think that these were used ubiquitously in our past. I also loved all the advertisements printed throughout the book, which would highlight the products being sent out in the bags. There’s a lot to learn from this book, so pick it up and start reading!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I’ve been a fabric person all my life. But I knew very little about the history of printed fabric used to package goods before reading this wonderful book, which is a compendium of feed sacks as a reflection of the culture of rural America in the first half of the 20th century. The book has dozens of clippings from newspapers, industry magazines, advertisements, and clothing patterns, which are fascinating windows into another time. The book is full of photos throughout, and the last section has hundreds of pictures of different fabrics. So this is a coffee-table book for those among us who cannot resist fabric. Do not miss this!”

  • I love Civil War reproduction fabric but would like to learn more about Feed Sack….especially like what is featured on the cover. It’s so important to pass along things from the past for future generations and it’s interesting learning about it.

    —Tina B on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabric reproduction? What a difficult question! Is "all of them" an authorised answer?

    Sophie on November 27, 2019
  • I’d go for 30s.

    —Carol W on November 27, 2019
  • Definitely feed sacks. My Mom was a farm girl & told me stories of sewing using feed sacks. Even though my Mom passed several years ago, I still feel that connection to her when I see feed sack material.

    —MaryB on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks are definitely my favorites!

    —Jean on November 27, 2019
  • I love all reproductive fabrics, but Civil War is my favorite!

    —Sharon Morton on November 27, 2019
  • My stash is almost totally comprised of Civil War and 1930’s. I love both! Presently, I’m working on an Edyta Sitar, which is only slightly out of my norm. When I get that one finished, I’ll be working on my 1930’s sampler quilt again.

    —Linda M Hahn on November 27, 2019
  • I think I am drawn to feed sacks the most.

    —Cindy Fraher on November 27, 2019
  • I had clothes made from feed sacks, curtains, pajamas. My mom was an excellent seamstress, but always had to go along to town when they purchased the feed so my dad wouldnt get the wrong fabrics!

    Carolyn on November 27, 2019
  • Simple florals, like feed sacks, work best for me.

    —Lynn Clogston on November 27, 2019
  • I love it all, but civil war reproductions would be my first love. I have a bag of feed sack fabric a friend gave me and I would love to have some fun ideas with what to do with this fabric!

    —Patty F. on November 27, 2019
  • Definitely the 1930’s fabrics – I love the small prints!

    —Sandi S on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War reproduction fabrics!

    —Kathrine Davis on November 27, 2019
  • I have never really cared for 30s fabric or the Civil War reproduction fabric but I like feed sacks. I think it is more what they represent; using what is available to you.

    —Colleen Terry on November 27, 2019
  • I have been wanting this book for months! It’s Beautiful!

    —Johnna Padgett on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War reproduction fabrics. I have som feed sacks that were my mother’s and am looking for a special project to use them in. Thanks for offering the Giveaway.

    —Bobbie Mentzel on November 27, 2019
  • I used to have a feed sack collection. I never wanted to use them since I loved them so much. I finally gave them to someone I knew would use them and love them. I guess my favorite reproduction fabric is 1930’s. It makes me feel good.

    —Barb Walsh on November 27, 2019
  • I like the feed sacks, but I love 💕 the 30’s fabric best. I think that’s because Grandma used so many. I’m not old enough to know where sh got the fabric, but it would have had to be cheap. She didn’t have much

    —Judy Thompson on November 27, 2019
  • I love all things reproduction, especially feed sacks! What a great looking book!

    —Alice on November 27, 2019
  • I love 30s prints, but my favorite is Civil War fabrics. I’m 67 and my mother wore feed sack clothes. I have actually seen some of the feed sacks, but have not sewn with them. They are a little thicker than quilt shop fabric and not as smooth. When I first started sewing, fabric was 36 inches instead of 45. There wasn’t as much selection back in those days. We have come a long way. My grandmother would have loved to have all the fabric I have. I must admit I have a little too much. 🙂

    —Kay of Cincinnati on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1930’s fabric, as my Great-Grandmother was a quilter, and i grew up with her quilts and her fabric scraps.

    —Tricia Hoffmann on November 27, 2019
  • I love to make quilts from the 30’s reproduction fabric!

    —Kathleen Young on November 27, 2019

  • It is hard for me to choose. I love feed sacks and have made and gifted one made from old sacks. I also love civil war and 1930’s fabric. I am just an old fashioned girl.

    Nancy Norris on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabric is Feedsack

    —Susan on November 27, 2019
  • I love the civil war fabrics. I’ve never been much for pastels.

    —Brenda Hulsey on November 27, 2019
  • I do love Civil War fabrics, but also have a collection of vintage feed sacks. I rarely sew with them though, because I hate to cut into them.

    —Judy Smith on November 27, 2019
  • I would love to read this book. As a history lover and quilter, I know it would be wonderful.

    —COLLEEN A BASILE on November 27, 2019
  • I have always liked 30s prints. I think because they are cheerful designs and colors.

    —Arliene Zeigler on November 27, 2019
  • While I remember my grandmother and mother sewing with feed sacks, I think my favorite reproduction fabrics are civil war era.

    —Marilyn Fite on November 27, 2019
  • I love all feedsack prints but if I had to chose I’d pick civil war.

    —Christine Elkin on November 27, 2019
  • I have collected a few feed sacks from antique dealers. So pretty!

    —Sylvia on November 27, 2019
  • I am currently sewing a lot of Civil War Reproductions, but love the feed sacks, just don’t have much in my stash.

    —MaryAnn Mairs on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sack, 1930 fabrics. This book looks like an excellent addition to my collection.

    —Peggy on November 27, 2019
  • Although I have a few feed sacks and am astonished at the number of patterns , civil war fabric is my favorite!

    —Sue Perry on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War

    —Louise M Haddon on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabric is Civil War but I have a small collection of Feed Sack fabric waiting for inspiration. I love the different texture of this fabric and would love to know more of it’s history.

    —Peggy Simpson on November 27, 2019
  • I’m a quilter and love feed sack fabric as well as the 30’s reproductions!

    —Barbara Bellinaso on November 27, 2019
  • I don’t know enough about reproduction fabrics. I would love to learn more! It sounds wonderful to see history from this view.

    —Nadja on November 27, 2019
  • I love both feedsack fabric and the 1930’s fabric and really can tell the difference when I am out there buying it unless a label tells me what it is. This book certainly would help my education in that aspect.

    —Jean Gerretsen on November 27, 2019
  • I love feedsacks. As a 6-9 year old was so jealous of my farm family friends who had these colorful fabrics as dresses. My "city" Mom, couldn’t find fabric like those in the fabric store and my dresses were plain. So envious and asking for chickens so I could have the fabric. Not to be (sigh).

    Mary Anne Romanowski on November 27, 2019
  • I like feed sack designs a lot. Some are so weirdly interesting you wonder how anyone came up with them!

    —Emma Thomas-McGinnis on November 27, 2019
  • I am in my 80’s and wore feed sack clothes when I was young. My mom had a few chickens so got feed in printed bags. Seems like I remember flour coming in printed bags also.I would love one of those books to look at. Would bring back memories. Thanks

    Gracie Adams on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproductions are civil war prints with 30’s a close second.

    —Janice Mc Laren on November 27, 2019
  • Thirties and Feed Sack fabrics are my favorite ones!!!

    —Sue on November 27, 2019
  • I have at least ten vintage feed sacks. Love the colors, patterns, the history, the memories of time past. I am addicted to reproduction fabric. I have only used the 30’s fabric (so far.)

    —carol on November 27, 2019
  • I love the idea of a book of our fabric history’ House wives have always to be frugal in the care of the family. It is really a shame that the feed sackes are no longer in use. with all of the talk of helping the planet, I would think that feed sackes would be a tremendous help with the care of the planet. Even for the folks that don’t sew there would be plenty of ways to trade the material with other items. Just think of all the garbage that would be elimiated with the use of feed sacks. I do believe that this book should be in the library of every sewer.

    —Diane Russell on November 27, 2019
  • The older reproduction fabrics always catch my eye and heart.

    —Robin on November 27, 2019
  • What an interesting book!
    I’ll be looking at old family photos with a different eye now!

    —Jetta on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1930’s fabric. I remember a bed covering with all kinds of prints that I had as a child. I used to look at every one and decide my favorites.

    —Paula on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabric right now is the 30’s fabrics, but I’m dying to learn more about feed sacks.

    —Jane on November 27, 2019
  • I have an extensive collection of 30’s fabrics! I think I currently am drawn to the reproductions! I really love them all!

    —Barbara Kelly on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabric has been Civil War or earlier. Lately though I’ve been thinking about more contemporary i.e. Kaffe Fassett. Haven’t worked yet wth that though.

    —Pat Clark on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite is Civil War prints. However, I have some feed sacks from way back and remember my mom making us dresses from some of them. That’s why I find this book fascinating.

    —Linda Pickenpaugh on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 30’s prints. The colors are so cheerful and prints are whimsical. My first quilt was made in the Dresden motif with the 30’s prints. Still my favorite quilt!

    —Leah Pupp on November 27, 2019
  • I love reproductions, my favorite is the 1930’s prints.

    —JAMA CARPER on November 27, 2019
  • As a collector of primitive antiques, I love quilting with Civil War fabrics and rustic farmhouse looks, like feed sacks. I also like blue & white and red & white quilts and have found room for batiks as well.

    —Laurie on November 27, 2019
  • Love 30’s feedsack prints! I have a drawer full! Thanks for the chance to win this great book!

    —Kerry Linklater on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War reproduction fabrics are my favorites. Love them. I did go through a phase where I bought 30s fabric. I made several quilts for my guest bedroom using those fabrics.

    Would love to read about the history of the Feedsack fabric.

    —Charlotte Schindler on November 27, 2019
  • When I was about eleven, I found some feed sacks. My mom said I could do any thing I wanted with them. I made them into summer nightwear.
    My favorite reproduction fabric would have to be Civil War.

    —Cindy on November 27, 2019
  • I thoroughly enjoy all repro fabrics — huge stash here! I’d love to add this book to my library.

    Jeanne on November 27, 2019

    Thanks for the give away of this wonderful book!

    —Piper on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War prints but 1930s & feedsacks are a very close second & third favorite!

    —Vicki Sprain on November 27, 2019
  • This book sounds SO interesting! I’ve only ever seen feed sack fabric in pictures and I would love to learn more about it. I don’t really have a favourite reproduction fabric. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —MoeWest on November 27, 2019
  • I really like reproduction and especially civil war. Sounds like interesting reading!

    —Lois J on November 27, 2019

    —Bev Hutchison on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 30’s reproductions because they are so cheerful.
    I also love the Civil War reproductions as well, because of the rich colors.

    —Lois on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabrics have always been civil war but that was before I knew anything about feed sacks!! Now I cannot choose.

    —Kathy Kranenburg on November 27, 2019
  • Born in 1937 on a farm in Maryland, I am very interested in feed sacks and the time period they represent. I love to sew and taught my self in 1965 and at one time made most of my clothes. Although I no longer make many of my clothes I do belong to a quilt guild and love making quilts and gifts for others. Our guild members support many different organizations that help those less fortunate. It is such a blessing to belong to a guild that continues to grow and help others. We started with five members eight years ago and now have over seventy-five members and usually have monthly attendance of fifty to sixty. Thank you for this opportunity to share about my love of all things to do with sewing, especially all the beautiful fabric.

    —Ellen Nickle on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War

    —Sharon on November 27, 2019
  • When I was a little girl in the ’40’s, my mother made me clothes from feed sacks purchased with feed for our animals on the farm. I have so many good memories from that time in my life. I would love to have a copy of this book!

    —Linda from IN on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabric is feed sacks; I’ve known about them since I was little, when my mother and grandmother used pieces of them in cotton crazy quilts- although they called them "grain bags" in Maine. I love looking at a quilt that my mom made for me and picking out the genuine grain bag or feed sack fabrics that came from her scrap bag.

    —Dottie MACOMBER on November 27, 2019
  • Haven’t settled on a style so much as a color palette. It all gets thrown in if the color is right!

    —Cathy B. on November 27, 2019
  • The 1930’s reproductions are actually my favorites but I love the feedsack reproductions, as well. I have a few scraps of my grandmother’s that I treasure!

    —Connie Passaro on November 27, 2019
  • I model vintage garments with a charity. I also do some of the sewing and repairing, and have always been fascinated by the clever women of the 30’s and 40’s who were able to dress so stylishly using feed sacks. We women are so resourceful!

    —Gail Mackay on November 27, 2019
  • I love the happy colors of the feed sacks.

    —Janna on November 27, 2019
  • I am a fan of reproduction chintz. It is less common than Civil War and Feed sacks, but very pretty. I love feed sacks and reproductions of them, too. My mother hated them – she had bad memories of wearing feed sack underwear and said it was scratchy. I always told her that if the underwear was scratchy her mother must have made it out of burlap feed sacks instead of the pretty printed cotton ones!

    —Terry on November 27, 2019
  • when I learned about this lovely book, I wanted to get it ASAP! I would love a copy for my quilt library, thank you!

    carol Klippstein on November 27, 2019
  • 1930’s…I love the tiny prints and the sweet colors.

    —Teri N on November 27, 2019
  • I love all of it, but feedsacks are awesome!

    —Becky Bynum on November 27, 2019
  • What a great book! I would love to share this book with my Mom, as she remembers garments from feed sacks. We buy feed sacks when they turn up at thrift stores, but we are reluctant to cut them up for a project – They don’t make them anymore!

    —Lin on November 27, 2019
  • I am always drawn to feed sack prints, since it reminds me of my grandma. I have a few aprons and some doll clothes made from feed sacks that I treasure. I would love to browse this book and share it with my mom.
    I do tend to purchase more Civil War fabrics though for my projects. they work better in my house.

    —Maria L Zook on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War is my favorite and Feed Sack is a very close second. I have made quilts from Feed Sack Reproductions and love every one of them.

    —Myrna on November 27, 2019
  • I have worked with both civil war and 30’s reproduction prints. I love them both. I would like to explore feed sack reproductions fabrics. Learning the history of feed sacks would enhance the quilt.

    Kristie on November 27, 2019
  • My husband’s old auntie, a tiny Chinese woman who never learned to speak English (but could mimic swear words) had a collection of worn pillowcases made from the cloth sacs she bought her rice in. I have used some of the unused dry good bags we found when she passes as the feature fabric in cathedral window blocks and turned them into small totes to hold small craft projects. I hope to find other projects to use these colourful fabrics to remember her by..

    —TJ Leung on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 1930’s fabric, So playful and fun. It takes me back to a more carefree time as a child.I think that’s good for all of us, to go back to playtime.I find I’m able to do that in my quilting/sewing.

    Patty Warner on November 27, 2019
  • I would kill for this book. I fell in love with 30’s repros 25 years ago and still love them the most for quilting! Feedsacks are certainly part of these fabrics. I LOVE thEM!

    —Arden on November 27, 2019
  • Our grandmas really never wasted a thing!! We should all be that frugal! 🙂

  • Do I have to pick??? I like them all. Depends on the project as to which is most suitable or pleasing.

    —Janice on November 27, 2019
  • Love the look of feedsacks but have no regional source to buy them, so I have a Civil War repro fabric shop that I patronize about 30 miles from my home.

    —Martha O. on November 27, 2019
  • I love feedback fabrics. I have a few feedbacks, don’t want to cut into them. I remember my grandma making aprons & quilts from them. Thank you!

    —Colleen H Ferber on November 27, 2019
  • I love feedsacks, and have been saving my collection for the perfect quilt.

    —Sally Howard on November 27, 2019
  • I love ALL reproduction fabrics. My favorite reprints are pre-civil war era.

    —Diane Smith on November 27, 2019
  • What an adorable look to a book that’s sure to be popular among quilters, fabric lovers and historians.

    —Jacqueline Maslowe on November 27, 2019
  • My fave is definitely feed sacks! I remember as a child thinking my grandmother’s guest bed had the most wonderful "canopy" covered with feed sacks, until I saw her lower her quilting frame from the ceiling and continue on the quilt it held.

    —Denise on November 27, 2019
  • I have a lot of my favorite fabric, 1930’s reproduction.

    —Maryanne Lucas on November 27, 2019
  • I love the feed sack and 1930’s fabric. They are so bright and cheery!

    —Stephenie Kyser on November 27, 2019
  • it would be hard to pick a favorite out of the four choices, I love them all!

    Sharon Curry on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabric is 1930’s; although, I like the other reproduction fabrics as well. I like many things from times gone by.

    —Judith Graham on November 27, 2019
  • My #1 favorite fabric Is feed sacks. My mom always told us girls about Grandma having to wait to get some feed sacks to sew herself or my mom a new dress. Plus the women would trade bags to get what she wanted.

    —Lisa on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics but also search every tag sale, flea market, everywhere for really old material. Love to make "old looking projects" – pillows, quilts, dolls, anything. Thrilled to see your Feed Sacks material.

    —Kathy O'Neill on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all. I have an extensive collection of Civil War fabrics and a few shelves of 1930’s fabrics.

    —Diane Linker on November 27, 2019
  • I love feedsack reproduction fabrics. My very most favorite nightgown of all time (and I’m 76 years old!) was made from feedsacks. It was blue with little flowers, and it was ever so soft and comfortable!
    As my sisters and I grew older (and bigger), our dad was instructed by our mom to buy 2 sacks that matched when he got feed for the cow. That way there would be enough to make something for us to wear.

    —Elizabeth D Smith on November 27, 2019
  • I am really anxious to get a look at the lovely feed sack book. Winning the book would be my ultimate Christmas present. Good luck to me!

    Cynthia Schwekowsky on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1930’s reproduction fabrics! The colors are so cheerful and the prints are fun!

    —Theresa Brooks on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War repros, with feed sacks a very close second.

    It’s so hard to find a variety of feedsack repros so I’d love to see the popularity of them return.

    This looks like such an awesome book, I can’t wait to read it!

    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and I really hope I win!

    —Susan on November 27, 2019
  • I like feed sacks. I think my grandmother used them for some of her quilts. When the quilts started disintegrating, I would find another layer of patchwork fabric underneath – some of the prints were so interesting. The quilts were very thick so there were many quilt tops pieced and patched on top of each other.

  • Love 1930s..remember my Mom ‘s clothes..

    —Betty Sue Antonetti on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics, but also have a large collection of 30’s/feedsack fabrics, which I use quite regularly in my little quilts. The history behind these fabrics is so interesting and the colours really make my quilts pop. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

    —Judith Hogan on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sacks and 30’s fabrics. I have inherited a number of both those kinds of quilts from my husband’s side of the family. I especially treasure a wedding ring quilt made out of feed sacks made by my husband’s Great Grandmother. I really cherish it!

    —Ann West on November 27, 2019
  • I would love to wind the feedsacks. This looks like a wonderful thing.

    —Michael Bancale on November 27, 2019
  • When I signed up for Hotmail (over 27 years ago, my son definitively picked ‘quiltmom’as my name, since I was an avid collector of vintage quilts. My collection of Depression-era scrap quilts has become more of a passion – to the point that I have written a book about them! And most of the quilts include precious scraps of feedsacks. 😃

    —Mary Ann Haak on November 27, 2019
  • I have stacks and stacks of feedsacks.
    I have stacks and stacks of civil war.
    I have stacks and stacks of 1930s.

    Maybe I just like all vintage fabric types!

    —Deborah K on November 27, 2019
  • Just finished a 30’s basket quilt. I guess I love any reproduction fabric paired with a pattern true to its heritage

    —Joan Baylor on November 27, 2019
  • I have to admit I like the Civil War reproduction fabrics but the flower sack fabric can just be fun. The book would give a a a wonderful look at history and how resourceful folks were.

    —Linda Brennan on November 27, 2019
  • This is a hard decision. The only fabrics I don’t collect are batiks.

    —Lisa Sweet on November 27, 2019
  • My favorites are the 1930’s florals!

    —Linda on November 27, 2019
  • What a great idea for a book! I am so impressed because I love feed sack prints. I have bought some over the last few years, but now I can’t bring myself to use them. I feel them, organize them, but never cut them. With the book I could look at them and never cut them up. Great!

    —Janet Reynolds on November 27, 2019
  • Honestly, I don’t know much about Feedback fabrics, but would love to learn more. I do love Civil War reproduction fabrics.

    Ginny D on November 27, 2019
  • I grew up in the fifties in a rural family where nothing was wasted. Flour sacks were saved to make my skirts and pajamas. If there was not enough of one print for a whole outfit, plain fabrics were used with prints as accents on hems, cuffs, etc. Also, cotton strings from chicken feed sacks were saved, wound into balls, and used to make crocheted lace trims for pillowcases and dresser scarves.
    I personally love Civil War prints which have a timeless beauty that is still inspiring after more than 150 years.

    —Pam on November 27, 2019
  • How do I decide??? I’ve made quilts using feedsacks, civil war and 1930’s reproductions and currently starting one with Liberty of London fabric. I am in a ‘bright’ mood right now so probably 1930’s are my favorite at the moment. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Terry Royer on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War reproduction but 30’s is a close second.

    —Diana O on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sack material. My mother made dresses for me out of feed sacks and without a sewing machine!

    —Margaret Dalmer on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics ,patterns, and feed sacks and would love to win this contest

    —Rebecca Wright on November 27, 2019
  • I love 30’s and Civil War reproductions. But it was the feedsack quilts we had on our beds growing up that brought me into quilting. There was the “Dolly” quilt. Who knew her name was Sue? And the “Flower” quilt. Who knew they were Dresden plates? And finding an unfinished “Dolly” quilt top in my mom’s closet when cleaning out the house, was the exact encouragement I needed.

    —Betsy on November 27, 2019
  • We used feedsacks for sewing when I was a girl. (I am now 85.) They were nice for making quilts and children’s clothes but not enough fabric to make a dress for my mother. Some were quite lovely.

    —Marjorie Avery on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite is civil war reproductions.

    —Sherri on November 27, 2019
  • My favorites are 1930s reproductions.

    —Judy B Bowers on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sack reproductions! I have a coverlet that my Vovoa(grandmother) made for me when I was a little girl and she made my dresses out of feed sack.

    —Mary-Betty Sylvia on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks..
    Because they remind me of looking on Grandma’s towel drawer.

    —Melody Lutz on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War,1930s and feedsacks are all great.

    —Sharon on November 27, 2019
  • I am a big fan of civil war prints.

    —Brenda C on November 27, 2019
  • I have a few feed sack quilts from my GREAT grand mother. I think this book would be a great addition to have. Would love to know the history to go along with the quilts.

    —Charlotte Jones on November 27, 2019
  • My sisters and my school dresses and underclothes were made from feedbacks in the early 1940s. Mom and grandmother kept busy on the farm, and sewing for 4 fast growing girls. The ‘grain man’ made sure to select as many as possible of same prints, because each bag gave us about 1 yard of fabric. Needed 2-3 yards for a school dress. I’ll always love feed sack prints for the warm memories that they evoke.

    —Cynthia North on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all! I am a little more partial to 30’s prints though.

    —Susan L. on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks are an all time favorite. They evoke such precious memories for those of a certain generation.

    —Bettina Kesteloot on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks is my favorite, but I love them all. I am old enough to remember some of them and clothing made from them. So wonderful.

    —Deborah Urich on November 27, 2019
  • When I first learned how to sew it was using feed sacks

    —Hilda Krebs on November 27, 2019
  • I go back and forth between 30’s and Civil War when feeling nostalgic.

    —Gloria Fradsham on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sacks.
    My mother made dresses for me
    from sacks that my grandfather gave us.
    I really love 30’s prints;
    They make me happy!

    —Sandra Avery on November 27, 2019
  • There is no way I can choose, I love them all so much.

    —Sue Cahill on November 27, 2019
  • I Love all the feedsacks for various reasons but mostly the flowers!

    —Marion Lisko on November 27, 2019
  • Feed Sacks

    —Hildy on November 27, 2019
  • When I was a girl, my sister and I were cared for by a lovely woman, Annie, who was born in 1900. She shared her fabric scraps with me and taught me how to sew, untangling the knots I made and un-sewing my mistakes. Thinking back, many of those fabrics were feedsack pieces, and they were so colorful and pretty. So, of course I love reproduction feedsack prints as they remind me of my “Nana” Annie and how she patiently and lovingly passed on her love of sewing and quilting to me.

    —Cindy Sakala on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sacks and some 1940’s reproduction fabrics.

    —Karen on November 27, 2019
  • I want to read this book cover to cover. I remember my mother and grandmother saving the feed sacks. My mother
    would wash and save the sacks all winter, usually trying to get 2 sacks of the same print. Come spring my sister and I would choose our favorite prints and she would make our summer clothes with them. I also have a quilt my grandmother made and backed it with feed sacks.

    —Donna K on November 27, 2019
  • My first sewing experience was a ‘broomstick’ skirt on a treadle machine. The skirt was made out of pink flowered Feedsack material. My Grandfather raised chickens so we made good use of the feedsacks!

    —Jane DelVitto on November 27, 2019
  • I enjoy both old and modern quilts. The feed sacks bring back memories of my Grandmother’s quilts from the 1950s.

    —Melody on November 27, 2019
  • I have lots of fabric but I love theCuvil War fabrics best. I love the shirtings-and scrappy is so easy using them!

    —Susan on November 27, 2019
  • It’s a toss up between feed sacks & 1950’s fabric. Love them both!

    —Carol Gearey on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all but the 1930s prints are my favourite.

    —Joann on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all! Yardage is easier to cut into than those beautiful feed sacks. I’m currently working on a 30’s repro EPP project.

    —Rose Haury on November 27, 2019
  • Girls, I am 82 years old so I lived the feed sack time. All my dressed were made of feed sacks. I was nest to the oldest of five girls, so we used a lot of sacks

    —Fern Baker on November 27, 2019
  • I love all the reproductions, but probably my favorite is Civil War .

    —Cinda Thompson on November 27, 2019
  • I thoroughly enjoy reading about the history of fabric
    s and quilts. I enjoy Civil War repro fabrics the most.

    —Gail M Kling on November 27, 2019
  • I like the brighter colors, so probably the 1930s prints.

    —Susan on November 27, 2019
  • Yes,
    I love them all!
    1930’s & Civil War…those colors just speak to me.
    Why do I not know the difference between "feed sack fabric" and 30’s prints????

    —Carol B. White on November 27, 2019
  • It is hard to choose, but probably Civil War.

    —Dixie on November 27, 2019
  • I mostly use Civil War repro’s, but have a pretty good stash of 30’s prints also. I wish I could afford more feed sacks–I only have a few authentic ones so I can’t bring myself to cut them up!

    —Karen D Martin on November 27, 2019
  • I like feedsacks and civil war. Feed sacks are so sweet looking.

    —Linda Lee Ahn on November 27, 2019
  • I like all of the reproduction prints, but I especially like the ones from the 1930’s. I have two drawers full of them. I repair old quilts and I’ve had the honor of repairing several that were made with original feedsacks.

    —Robbin Golden on November 27, 2019
  • I currently am loving feed sacks. I have some old ones from my grandmother.

    —Kathie L on November 27, 2019
  • Definitely feed sacks. Not always the best quality fabric but it INCLUDES the 30’s stuff by the way! tiny florals and geometrics, and memories of the stack of clean sacks on the back of Grandma’s couch, and the tops of hers I’ve been working on… had to go to eBay to find some old blocks and fabrics to fill in on them! Watch out: eBay can be addictive for those of us w/o the time to go estate sale-ing! love it all

    —Sharon S on November 27, 2019
  • I like them both but would really like to make a quilt out of the feed sacks.

    —donna bach on November 27, 2019
  • When I started quilting I just bought what I liked, now I love the 30’s, Feed sacks, and civil war.

    —Linda Gidos on November 27, 2019
  • I have collected a few and my favorite has a bluebird on it. I will add it to an apron I think.

    —Marlene Schurr on November 27, 2019
  • I like the flowered feedsacks.

    —Jeanette S on November 27, 2019
  • All reproductions are wonderful, but feed sacks have a special place in my heart. My Mother bought flour in feedsacks in 25 pound bags as late as the 70’s. I still have a pillow case on my Grandmother’s feather pillow in a red floral design.

    —Nancy Shepard on November 27, 2019
  • It’s a toss up as to which I love the best – Civil War fabrics make beautiful quilts but there are so much you sew with Feed Sacks.

    —Susan Bean Mandibles on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks! My grandmother made me dresses made from feed sacks.

    —Virginia in AK on November 27, 2019
  • My friend, Zylpha, was a fine quilter and wonderful storyteller. She was in her 90’s when she passed, more than 10 years ago. A requested speaker at many guilds until then, always including, with great humor, tales of feedsack, used for her clothing, as a child. One of her favorites was her feedsack bloomers made with the printed product label showing on the backside.

    —Mary Porter on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 1930’s prints! I can’t look at them without smiling!

    —Teri Gailey on November 27, 2019
  • When I was a little girl,I wore feed sack dresses that my mother made. That makes me a Feed Sack Fan. But the first quilt I ever made was with Civil War Reproduction prints so that is a favorite too.

    —Barbara D. on November 27, 2019
  • I tried to purchase this book when it was first published but missed out. I’m so glad you brought it back. I love all types of repro fabrics. But the feed sacks were so colorful. Looking forward to reading this book.

    —Robbi Imhoff on November 27, 2019
  • I have none of these fabrics in my stash! This book would be a great introduction to feed sacks. Happy Thanksgiving!

    —Rose C on November 27, 2019
  • When I was very little – about 75 years ago (I’m 78 now)- my dad raised rabbits and chickens for our consumption in our back yard. My mom turned the feed sacks into cute little dresses for me. Feed sack nostalgia reigns!

    —Judith Carlon on November 27, 2019
  • I have a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt made by my grandmother in 30’s fabric and hope to one day make one of my own. My quilting buddy collected feed sacks and is in the process of making a quilt for herself. Thanks for the review of the book and giveaway HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

    —Rita S on November 27, 2019
  • I really like 1930’s, but I’m not very good at putting them together in quilts. Civil War repros are too drab for me.

    —Sharon on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all!! I have a stash of civil war repros that I started collecting to make a Dear Jane, and I can’t seem to stop. I also love the 30’s, they are so happy. I’m currently making a Sunbonnet Sue with them. I would love to read more about the history of feed sacks, and would like to extend my stash to include them. This book sounds wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

    —Sue H on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 30’s fabrics — but would love to learn more about the Feed Sacks. Thank You

    —Marianne Barta on November 27, 2019
  • I love the thir 30s . The fabrics bring back many happy memories of the clothing my mother made us from the feed sacks. my granddaughters always pick out 30s fabrics for their quilts. Is there any thing better for a sunbonnet Sue?

    —Sandra Corrigan on November 27, 2019
  • Ohhhh…what memories of the feedsacks! Loved going to the Mill with dad as he bought chop for our hogs. My job was to pick out the sacks because my mamaw would make me dresses😍 fond memories !

    —Retia Shealy on November 27, 2019
  • I love early chintz reproductions but there are few available. I also enjoy 1930s and am interested in reading about the history of feed sacks.

    —Gale W. S. on November 27, 2019
  • All the fabrics are lovely. I just acquired a bunch of vintage fabric from the 30’s and I am looking forward to using them

    —Karen A on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks, for sure

    —Cristina on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks are by far my fave. I am planning a new quilt using feed sacks from my husband’s grandmother’s stash!

    —Janet Klockenga on November 27, 2019
  • I confess I am partial to 30’s repros with feedsacks a close second. My Missouri grandma sewed with feedsacks, but my Nana did crochet and embroidery – the best of both worlds.

    —SandyMay on November 27, 2019
  • I think I like the 30’s fabric best. I do have some rice sack cloth from years ago.

    —Kathy A on November 27, 2019
  • I like the Civil War prints. Although recently I made three of my granddaughters quilts from 1930s prints.

    —Anne L. Rightler on November 27, 2019
  • I like all three, but Civil War reproductions are my first choice, followed by 1930’s prints.

    —Barb on November 27, 2019
  • My problem is I love just about all fabrics! I’m a historian and am glad to see another book devoted to the history and use of feed sacks.

    —Wilma on November 27, 2019
  • I love the Civil War fabrics! This would be a great book to have.

    —Susan J Stein on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War, post-CW William Morris prints and 30’s reproduction fabrics. I have two more projects to go to finish my"deep dive" into the CW Repros and history and then want to make a series of quilts with my 30’s stash (although I do have one Aunt Grace line BOM top waiting for quilting!). I was glad to see this book is being released again. I missed out on it during the first run so look forward to getting it this time around!

    Vivian B. on November 27, 2019
  • I can’t say I have a favorite, I love them all! If I have to choose one I guess it would be 1930s simply because that is what I have more of in my stash!

    —Linda M on November 27, 2019
  • I Love feedsacks!!! My Grandmothers both left me a great supply to start with and I have used them in many quilts. Can’t wait to see the book!

    —Kathy Timmons on November 27, 2019
  • I love 30’s and Feed sack prints–they look great in a quilt and they all go together! They remind me of my Grandma’s aprons!

    —A Clark on November 27, 2019
  • feed-sack and the 30’s fabric are my favorites!

    Carolyn on November 27, 2019
  • I remember sewing with feed sacks when I was in 4-H. Mother always had to buy more than one sack of feed so I would have enough fabric to make my project.

    —Jan Horn on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics and 1930’s fabrics. Civil war time period is my favorite part of history. I don’t know why but I feel connected to that time period. Thirties fabrics are just so colorful and cute.

    —Stacey Mitchell on November 27, 2019
  • I am currently making a quilt from feedsacks – it’s a pickledish. If only goods came in feedsacks again – it would help save the planet reducing waste, and keep us sewing ladies happy!

    —Pauline C on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabric are the Mid-Century Modern Fabrics. Maybe it is because I was born in the 1950’s (just barely!). Although, I do have 2 large bins of 1930’s fabrics.

    —Melissa Gerber on November 27, 2019
  • I LOVE the repro fabrics, especially the 30’s prints. And as a history major, I love any kind of info that delves into history.

    —Geri on November 27, 2019
  • Would love to win. Love all fabric

    —Sandy on November 27, 2019
  • I love the feed sacks and the history that goes with them. I have several to make a quilt.

    —Patricia Draa on November 27, 2019
  • My most prided possession is an 80 year old Cathedral Windows quilt made by my Grandmother,s sister…made with a huge variety of feed sacks

    —Sharon on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1930’s fabrics.

    —Donna V on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks

    —Diane Beavers on November 27, 2019
  • I love history, and Civil War quilts are a favorite — but I also collect feedsacks (which I’ve thus far been unable to cut!). I grew up with quilts made from feedsack fabrics–including a one-patch quilt of kite-shaped pieces that include one of the fabrics shown in the book.

    —Lucy Slaich on November 27, 2019
  • This looks like such a wonderful book. I so glad you have worked to compile such a rich and loving history.

    —Theresa Mumaw on November 27, 2019
  • What is my favorite reproduction fabric? Feed sacks for sure! I love the prints of feed sacks. :o)

    —Cheryl R. on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sack fabric! I love making tablerunners out of scrap feed sack fabric. I enjoy reading about women who sewed with feed sack fabric. I would love to own this book!

    —Judi Rizzo on November 27, 2019
  • I love all those types, it is hard to find a fabric I am not fond of. My favorite
    fabric is 30’s reproductions.

    —Stephanie Woodward on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1920’s – 1940’s feedbacks!!! My late mother used to have dresses made of feedbacks in 1930’s West Virginia. They are a lovely connection to my memories of her.

    —Tuxedocat on November 27, 2019
  • I LOVE feedsacks especially those that would be classified as "conversation prints"

    —Darlene Schrag on November 27, 2019
  • Loved hearing stories about sewing with FeedSacks. Feed Sack fabric is something I would love to sew with.

    —SherryG on November 27, 2019
  • Civil War reproductions are my favorite; however, I would love to know more about the history of feed sacks!

    —Ann Brassell on November 27, 2019
  • I grew up wearing feed sack clothes , Mom and I both. We would go to the store with Daddy
    to pick out the prints we wanted him to buy. This was in the late 30’s and early 40’s. When
    I started Home Ec in 7th grade, our first sewing project was an apron and took a pretty feed
    sack for the fabric for my apron. It turned out very pretty but it wore out years ago so I no
    longer have it.

    —Jean Dunn on November 27, 2019
  • Right now I am sewing dollies from my grandmothers feed sacks…love, love, love that fabric!

    —Karen S. on November 27, 2019
  • This book looks like it would be fascinating to read and look at the pictures! I love Civil War repro prints. We live in a 200+ year old house near Gettysburg.

    —Gail on November 27, 2019
  • I like all old fabrics. I like being able to identify fabrics from my first quilts made in the 70’s and 80’s in current quilts I see in shows, museums, restaurants, etc.

    —C Davis on November 27, 2019
  • Civil war reproductions are my favorite, but feedsacks would be second. I even have some quilts made by my grandmother and great aunts that used feedsack fabrics

    —Robin M on November 27, 2019
  • Feed sacks and 30s fabrics are special to me as it reminds me of my grandma who inspired me to make quilts and I am blessed to have a few of her creations that used several of the feed sack fabrics. I still have a few of these fabrics in my stash!

    —Jeanne on November 27, 2019
  • I was born in 1940. My mother sewed all my school clothes (attended country school until 7th grade.) I have tons of feed sack fabric leftovers from her stash which I continue to use for quilts, potholders, old-fashioned sun bonnets and aprons as gifts to give my relatives and friends! I also still go on "feed sack hunts" in thrift stores and antique shops. The memories I have are as vibrant as the fabrics!

    —Carrie Ott on November 27, 2019
  • I love the 1930’s fabric because the colors are so vibrant and the patterns, children, ducks, dogs, etc. make you smile and remember when you were a child. The innocence of youth in fabric.

    Libby Clem on November 27, 2019
  • I don’t think I have a favorite era for repro fabrics but when I look at my stash, _it_ says I like 1930’s best.

    🙂 Linda

    —linda s on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite (favourite?) reproductions? It’s hard to choose between feedsacks and 1930s prints. I once saw a beautiful exhibit of vintage British quilts – I so wish someone would reproduce some of those fabris as well.

    —Melody on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics. I am getting ready to make a log cabin quilt with my Civil War collection.

    —Joanne L Wilson on November 27, 2019
  • I love Feedsacks, 30’s and Civil War. I work with all 3 and grew up with 30’s quilts on my bed. I love the history of the fabrics and reading about the women who used them. It would be so much fun to win that book.

    —Sharon Lowy on November 27, 2019
  • It looks like a fun and very interesting book.

    —Clara Haessig on November 27, 2019
  • I love 1930’s prints, but I think I could easily get hooked on feed sacks! The book looks great.

    —Linda B. on November 27, 2019
  • Feedsacks are hands down my favorite!! So glad this beautiful book is being reprinted.

    —Janine on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction is the feed sacks. How original and resourceful was the previous generation. They would take the tethered rags and turn them into something else, mend socks, and reuse multiple items. Current generation is all about how it looks and has the use and then toss mentality.

    —Jennifer Galindo on November 27, 2019
  • I love my stash of 30’s reproductions! I would love to read this book from cover to cover!

    —Shellie on November 27, 2019
  • While I love reproduction fabrics, I would have to say my favorites are feed sacks and 30’s!

    —Ann L. on November 27, 2019
  • I love the Feedsacks! Reminds me of childhood as my mom had collected them on our little farm, but dad had a store in town with stacks of feed in sacks stored in the back area. We were supposed to stay off the stacked sacks as to prevent damaging them…But, My brother and I would get in trouble climbing on them, playing hide and seek as we tried to aim and use pea-shooters on each other! 🙂

    —Janet Hieber on November 27, 2019
  • Gosh, I don’t know what type of reproduction fabric would be my favorite. In all honesty, I think the psychadelic prints from the late ’60s and early ’70s would probably be what catches my eye. I was in high school at that time, and I can remember everyone competed to see who could find the wildest print. I even made boxers for some of the guys!

    —Linda H. on November 27, 2019
  • I loved my great grandma’s quilt made from feed sacks and 30’s fabric. Now that I’m a great grandma, I hope to pass on that love to mine. It would be neat to be able to win this book!

    —Dorothy Borders on November 27, 2019
  • Love all the reproduction fabrics but have a special affinity for the 1930’s prints. Feed sacks have a wonderful history.

    —Betty on November 27, 2019
  • It’s definitely the 30s fabric.

  • My mother made me clothes from feed sacks when growing up. Still have a few of the original fabrics. My granddaughter loves the fabric and made a skirt from feedback fabric. Would like to win book for her

    —MARY OVER on November 27, 2019
  • I am really drawn to Civil War reproduction fabrics but I have to admit that feed sack fabrics are very inviting. I never knew much about them until this book. I think the history behind this fabric line would be a great read.

    —Lynn Darcy on November 27, 2019
  • I’ve always loved feed sack fabrics, plus anything from the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s! This looks like a wonderful book!

    —Susan Stanton on November 27, 2019
  • In the early 1950’s in Montana, I was the lucky recipient of several feed sacks saved by my Grandmother for me. I remember that they were a border print that I used to make a tiered skirt and a blouse from them. It was my favorite outfit for several years.
    Many years later, in the late 1980’s while living in Alaska we ordered our flour in cloth bags, I made my granddaughter a tiered skirt from them.
    When I moved I left some behind and have regretted it since.
    I would like to have the book. Great to remember this.

    —Nancy Alley on November 27, 2019
  • I loved my mom’s stories of clothing made from feed sacks. The favorite one was of her having a pair of "bloomers" that said 50 lbs. net weight right across her bottom!

    —Debra Miller on November 27, 2019
  • I lean to the vintage look of the 1930’s fabrics and the softer colors.

    —Yolanda on November 27, 2019
  • I like the flour sack fabric. It is so cheery and the prints so cute.

    —Cynthia on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabrics are the 1930’s, although I have a few feedsacks and tend to hang on to them and not use them. They are so pretty and make me feel happy!

    Sandy Claessens on November 27, 2019
  • I can’t choose just one era as I have some of each including some original feed sacks.

    —Cassy L. on November 27, 2019
  • I had sunsuits made out of feed sacks in the 40’s. I remember them as being soft to the feel. I would love to win a copy of this book so that I could learn more about feed sacks.

    —Katherine on November 27, 2019
  • It’s great the book is being reprinted. My favourites are 1930s and Feedsack. They seem to compliment each other. My Mum grew up wearing underwear made from flour sacks in Australia. They weren’t colourful over here, though. They just had the brand printed on them, so we’re bleached before using for garments.

    Janice Hope on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabric is the civil war reproductions. I have a number of feedbacks from my grandmother waiting to be used some day.

    —Jacque on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabrics are probably Civil War but I also love what seems to be a light-hearted cheeriness of 1930s and feed sack prints

    —P. Wentworth on November 27, 2019
  • I love my Civil War Reproduction fabrics, but my mother won first place at the County Fair – Marshalltown Iowa – in the 1940’s. I still have her picture, the ribbon and a scrap of the fabric she used!

    —Susan M Putman on November 27, 2019
  • Feedsacks. My mother in law gave me her feedback collection. The colors and prints are awesome.

    —Judy Paulsen on November 27, 2019
  • I love them all but 1930’s might be my favorite. However, I am interested in feed sacks and have heard many stories of shirts and blouses made from feed sacks. I know of several people who came from large families who worked the land to survive. The kids all had feed sack shirts/shorts/blouses. One of my college roommates told me her stories of how as kids they would argue over who would get the next shirt. She told me as kids they would spend an inordinate amount of time picking out the flour based on the pattern of the cloth. This was not in the 30’s either – it’s in the 60’s in Maine. Things move a little slower in upper Maine. Also, in Hawaii they used colorful patterns to hold not just flour but beans and other food items. Again, I knew several people who told me their stories. In the 50’60’s there were many people who did not have money for store bought clothes. It was common to sew your clothes. THis is a great idea writing about the flour sacks…

    —Val on November 27, 2019
  • I love feed sack fabrics. I have some feed sack kitchen towels my mother in law gave me the first year we were married and I have several other pieces I have found in vintage shops. This book seems amazing and I would love to have it.

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on November 27, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics because of the warm colours, but use feedback type fabrics for sewing my Raggedy Ann dolls! I would truly enjoy reading this book about feedback history!😊

    —Dianna Michie on November 27, 2019
  • My favorite fabrics in the reproduction group would be the feedsack fabrics. I also grew up wearing little dresses made of the feedsack fabrics. Then as I began my life-long sewing journey, I made aprons, kitchen curtains, potholders, blouses, and many other household necessities from these fabrics. They were a sewing mainstay in our home. This book would be a treasure to own!

    —Margaret Chambers on November 27, 2019
  • I love feedsack fabric. Reminds me of my childhood. My mom would let me have a piece of fabric so I could sew for my dolls. I guess that started my love of sewing and quilting! Oh, the memories.

    —Kathy Crooks on November 27, 2019
  • I have a lot of civil war fabrics in my stash, but the feedbacks intrigue me. What a lovely part of American history!

    —Bonnie on November 27, 2019
  • Yes, I love those feed sacks, the colors and designs. I would love to have this book. I wore dresses made from feed sacks mainly in the 40’s as I was born in the late 30’s. My mother would tag along with my dad when he went to town to pick up feed, then she would pick the bags with matching fabrics to to sew dresses for my sister and me.

    —Althea Klosterman on November 27, 2019
  • Hmmm. It’s a toss-up between 30’s and feedsacks!

    —Kathy R on November 27, 2019

  • I adore the 1930’s character prints. They are just so adorable.

    —April Lopez on November 28, 2019
  • Feed Sacks are special to me as I have many items from my Mom-Mom made out of feed sacks. My Pop-Pop knew to look for certain colors or prints when buying feed & seed. My baby quilt was probably the 1st item I received & I still have it. We all slept under feed sack quilts when visiting & I know have 2 of those. After both grandparents were passed & my mom & uncles were clearing the house I asked for what we called the Lone Ranger or Cowboy quilt. I was told no such quilt was found even with my description of size, colors & print. Then a boy cousin asked for the same quilt. It never was found & I think that Mom-Mom gave it away so there would be no problems after she was gone cause every grandchild wanted to sleep with it. Eventually my Mom found a piece of the fabric & gave it to me. I also have some other scraps that I just look at for memories. I have a Barbie ball gown we made from solid feed sacks. And my husband still uses chair pads that were used originally on rockers & kitchen chairs on his tractor seats. They may have a few tiny holes now & stains but that material was woven to last. I remember curtains & aprons made from the feed sacks & all was sewn on a treadle machine. How we have progressed in fabrics & machines. So I would love to have a book showing the history & manufacturers.

  • LOve anything with age. I remmeber my grandmother making a many of things out of feedsacks would love to learn more.

    —Nancy Foland on November 28, 2019
  • This sounds like an amazing compilation. I’m one of the folks who sewed and wore feedsack clothes, dried dishes with feedsack towels, slept on feedsack pillowcases and still treasure them as a marvelous part of our heritage.

    —Connie Harrison on November 28, 2019
  • I’m getting an error message so hope my original comment went through the first time and the warning about "already said that" is just a computer hiccup.

  • I have quilts from my grandmother with feedsack material and would love to learn more about them. I love the prints used in feedsacks.

    —M. Burnette on November 28, 2019
  • Feed sacks! As a child, my mother would make us 5 girls scarves by cutting squares of fabric from the flour sacks and hemming the edges. I remember being teased on the school bus for wearing rags on my head and I hated those scarves. As a quilter, I now love the fabric and wish I could tell my mom that I am sorry. She worked so hard for our large family.

    —Judy Patrick on November 28, 2019
  • Feed sacks!! My mom would tell me about the feed sack dresses she used to wear that her sister would make her. In my young mind, I was thinking of brown burlap socks, and being so confused, asked why on earth would she wear something like that! Only from a book did I see a lot of different colors and patterns on these sacks, and realized that these were perfect for dresses. I instantly fell in love with those fabrics …

    —Bethni Lee on November 28, 2019

  • I like both the Civil War and the Depression Era reproduction fabrics.

    I made 70″ square and
    36″ square tablecloths a few years ago, using feedsack repro. fabric. They turned out to be very cute, using the "stack and wack" method.

    —Pam Fritz on November 28, 2019
  • I like all kinds of reproduction fabrics, but am so intrigued by the history of feedsacks. The prints are so pretty and how wonderful to be able to use the fabric as feedsacks and then repurpose them as clothing.

    Shasta on November 28, 2019
  • My favorite fabric to collect is feed sacks. I have several pieces and love the prints and the feeling of life in a simpler , less wasteful time. I would be thrilled to have this book in my sewing library!

    —Shauna Moulton on November 28, 2019
  • Feed sacks are first, with 1930’s, and reproductions in second and third place.

    winning blocks made with feed sack fabric at a quilt show many years ago, peaked my curiosity about them, and that still continues, so..winning the book would be the icing on the cake continuing my quest with all the information about those fabrics. Thanks!

  • Feed sack prints are my favorite. These sack prove that our ancestors were forward thinking. They created a consumable product placed in a multi-use, high quality recyclable container that keep their customers coming back for more. Today we get a paper sack that often leaks. We could take a lesson from their great marketing skills! I would appreciate owning this book. I’m positive it would be a wealth of information and provide me with hours of great reading. Thanks for taking the time to print it.

    —Angela on November 28, 2019

  • Civil War reproductions are my favorite, with feed sack prints a close second. When I was a little girl in the early 50s, my granddad tried to choose flour/feed sacks of the same print so Mother would have enough to sew dresses for me. My favorite was a dark blue and purple on white print of grapes and vineyard scenes. Mother added a blue top with large scalloped collar to the skirt.

    —Barbaraben on November 29, 2019
  • I like the colors and designs in Civil War reproduction prints. However, feedsacks hold many memories for me as I grew up in a rural area and wore many things made from feedsacks. Sometimes I would go to the mill/feedstore with my Dad to try to find another bag to match a print so there would be enough to make a dress for my Mother who sewed most of our clothes. She and other neighbors would trade prints. Feedsacks were used for many things: tablecloths, dish towels, aprons, kitchen curtains, dresses, blouses, pajamas, and of course the scraps used for quilts.

    —Nan Hobbs on November 29, 2019

  • I’m hand quilting a feed sack quilt right now having used a collection of about 30 different prints. Like many others, I also had feed sack clothes as a child. Would really like to win this book.

  • I find all reproduction fabrics interesting, but I think the history surrounding the use of feed sack fabrics is particularly fascinating. The variety of fabric patterns is incredible.

  • My favorite is Civil War fabric, although I enjoy them all. Thank you!

  • Today it would be civil war. 10 years ago I would have said feed sacks. Needless to say I have a stash of both.

    —Renae on November 30, 2019
  • I quilt the most with Civil War fabrics, but I have very tender feelings about feedsacks. My mom was born in 1934 and grew up on a farm in Iowa. She used to tell me stories about Grandma sending Grandpa to town with stern instructions about buying feed in all the same designed bags so she could make dresses for the girls for school and church, or with swatches so he could match what she already had. And I have my mom’s baby quilt, which is a crazy quilt made from feed sacks. I love the practicality of the medium and the determined optimism of the designs.

  • I love 30’s reproduction fabrics but I can’t seem to find feed sack fabric in my area. I need to find an online source. The book looks amazing!

    —HelenT on November 30, 2019
  • I guess I would have to say 39’s and feedbacks because I don’t know the difference. Probably what I have been using is a combination of both. LOVE the sweet prints!

    —Lynn on November 30, 2019
  • All of these fabrics fascinate me. I love the history that each brings. Quilts made from each era the 30’s fabric would have been my favorite a few years ago, but now the civil war fabrics are at the top of my list. love the book.

    —Darliss on November 30, 2019
  • During WWII, we had very little money to buy clothing so I was always excited to get to pick out the flour sacks that my clothes were made from. I had brothers and my mother didn’t sew for them so I got all of the flour sacks. I still have my ration book and remember helping her figure out what all we could buy at the local grocery store (nothing like the big stores we have now). I love the feed sack fabric, don’t care much for Civil War.

    —Sue Webb on November 30, 2019
  • Love the 30’s, feedsacks, and civil war fabrics. The quilt I am making often determines which fabric I love in that moment. Love the book.

    —Darliss on November 30, 2019
  • I love them all, but have made many quilts from 30s reproductions. I have a large bin filled wit feed sack fabrics, and would love to get started on them! I wore dresses, shorts, and blouses made from feed sacks when I was a kid….all made by my grandmother. I loved them! 💕

    —Sharon Linders on November 30, 2019
  • I love feed sacks, and I have quite a collection! I would love to win your book!!

    —Pat White on November 30, 2019
  • Hard to pick just one as i like all three, but i guess my favorite would be Thirties as they make such happy quilts.

    —Theresa Kennedy on November 30, 2019
  • I love reproduction fabrics. They recall the past while maintaining the integrity to last into the future. I have collected more Civil War fabrics than the others, but my favorite is designed by William Morris.

    —Linda Towers on November 30, 2019
  • Hands down it is civil war. Have made a few quilts in the past with repro fabrics, love it. Thanks!

    —Lisa Timmer on November 30, 2019
  • I like civil war fabrics. But is have a soft spotthe 30s fabrics as well.

    —Renata on November 30, 2019
  • WoW! Must I choose? ;-b I do love civil war and 1930s fabrics as well as feedbacks.
    Sounds like an amazing book! Definitely one for the wish list.

    Great giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  • I’m a history buff, so I particularly love the civil war prints.

    —Debbie on November 30, 2019
  • Feed sacks have always been my favorite, and I just don’t know why. They’re comforting for some reason, and I just plain LIKE them!

    —Denise Yanus on November 30, 2019
  • I love feedsacks and 1930s repros – I’ve been collecting them forever! They make me smile!

    —Paula on December 1, 2019
  • Civil war reproduction fabric is my favorite, but I also have a large collection of 30’s fabrics which I love. This book looks so interesting as my own Mother made several dresses that my sister and I wore from feed sacks. It would be fun to read up on them and perhaps I could identify some as the ones I wore as a girl!

    —Marie Eddins on December 1, 2019
  • Love reproduction fabrics but feed sacks come a close second!

    —MJ on December 1, 2019
  • I would probably say the 1930’s but I really like them all.

    —Paulette Dorland on December 1, 2019
  • I love Civil War era and have some reproduction fabrics. I would love to find out more about feedback fabrics too. Thank you so much.

    —tina on December 1, 2019
  • If I had to pick just one, it would be feedbacks or 1930s!

    Daisy on December 1, 2019
  • Love the idea of the book. Civil Was quilts are my favorites. I have started quite a few—think that will be my–Yes, I will, for next year and finish them all!!! Wish I had some feed sacks. Thank you for the books your company produces.

    —elizabeth on December 2, 2019
  • It’s hard to choose but I think I like civil war fabrics the most and 30’s coming in a close second.

    —Mary on December 2, 2019
  • I love civil war reproduction fabrics but especially love them when the colors are more bright as in Kim Diehl’s fabrics! I know about feed sacks but have never seen real ones.
    I think reading this particular book would be informative and enjoyable… I love to learn new things!

  • Feed sacks. It immediately brings back memories of my Grandma. I would love this book.

    —Emma W on December 2, 2019
  • I’m still a fan of the 30’s fabrics!

    —Barbara Beernink on December 2, 2019
  • My favorite reproduction fabrics are the feedback 30s prints. My grandma made my clothes from her chicken feed sacks. I loved them then; I cherish them now. I would love a copy of this book. I wonder if there are dress prints in it from my past? Thank you!

    —Miriam on December 2, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics and my non-quilting sister loves 30’s so I have and love both!

    —Jody Marker on December 2, 2019
  • I love Civil War reproduction fabric but still waiting for the psychedelic fabrics from the 60s to make a comeback!

    —Ali on December 2, 2019
  • I am in love with all of them. Choose just one? If I had to maybe 1930’s would be the one.

    —Christi on December 2, 2019
  • I love them all!!

    Sounds like an interesting read!! Looking forward to it!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!!

    —Nina E on December 2, 2019
  • I love Civil War fabrics. I suppose because I have been involved with my son and husband for many years in civil war reenacting. I would love to learn about feed sack fabrics. Thanks for sharing this.

    —Lori Smanski on December 3, 2019
  • I like the feed sack fabrics. I have a 1930s era quilt that used the feed sack with description of product being sold as the backing fabric. I also found a feed sack print of a little cowboy and his horse that I worked into a baby quilt! I wish I could find more feed sack fabric. It is so different and historical!

    —Liz VanSickle on December 3, 2019
  • I have loved feedsack reproductions because of the connection to my grandmother. I see feedsack fabric and I see Grandma B.

    —Carol L on December 3, 2019
  • I like anything that looks vintage, but gravitate toward Civil War fabrics in the majority of my quilting.

    —Annette F. on December 3, 2019
  • I absolutely love feed sack designs. They bring back such wonderful memories of my grandma and her pretty printed aprons!

    —Mary Vitelli on December 3, 2019
  • I love 1930s fabrics. I have made some quilts with these fabrics.
