1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What kind of fabric is this? on: September 23, 2008 12:45:25 PM
I've come into a large quantity of fabric from what used to be several very large curtains.  Unfortunately, I don't know what kind of fabric it is.  It's slick feeling, and I'm pretty sure it's synthetic, but I don't know what exactly.  The edges fray easily into long strands lengthwise and fuzz widthwise, if that makes any sense.  The front is striped, but the back is white and has a weird, almost wood grain look to it.  Here's a link to a (bad cameraphone) pic of the back.  ADDED: Pic showing the front, back, and fraying edge.  Can anyone identify this fabric?  Thanks!

Hi!  Long time lurker, first time poster.  My name's Kate.  I've been interested in sewing for as long as I can remember, and am finally getting around to learning.  My goal is to be able to make my own costumes for Renaissance festivals and the like, and I love costuming in general.  I have a great admiration for anyone who can make things with their own hands.  Crafters are my heroes.   Cheesy

I'll probably just lurk around some more for a while, occasionally poking my head up to make a comment.
