I remember going to the store with my Grandmother to buy chicken feed & getting to pick a feedsack fabric pattern I liked. So many of my clothes were made from feed sacks and floursacks in the 1940's & 1950's.
My husband & I are donating part of each feedsack pattern we have ever owned to preserve the history associated with the thousands of wonderful American feedsacks produced from the early 1920's to the early 1960's. I am cutting up most of my feedsacks to document as many as possible for the CENTER for AMERICAN HISTORY in Austin on the UNIVERSITY of TEXAS Campus. They are scanning a lot of their donated textile items into the internet for research purposes. They are one of five CENTERS doing this in the US. I love the history of designs printed on feedsacks, truly AN AMERICAN story. The first artistic designs on feedsacks came out about 1924 when my mother, Willa Rogers, was born. Printed cloth for food item sales is still being used today in some countries, such as Mexico, for foodstuffs.
We will be listing hundreds of different sizes & patterns of FEEDSACKS in the next few months. I have always loved feed sacks since getting a box full from my Grandmother Rogers shortly after I got married. My Grandmother had made a lot of my clothes growing up. She left me all of her scraps, but my most prized possession was the box of feedsacks she gave me in the late 1950's. There were singles plus 4 & 5 feedsacks of the same print. They were all washed, ironed, & folded with no spots or holes; except for the stitching holes. She told me her sister, my Great Aunt Nina (who did not sew & used the feed on their farm in TEXAS) had sent the feedsacks to her, and my Grandmother passed them on to me. .
