Great Canadian Fabrics

Fabric Antiques: By far the largest numbers of antique items created, in pioneer Canada, were made of fabric: hats, shirts, coats, breeches, dresses, shawls, shoes, mitts, socks, stockings, etc. not to mention sheets, blankets, coverlets, ticks, mattresses, and quilts. Of quilts alone, a woman might make hundreds in her lifetime, both "utility quilts," which wore out from constant use, and "good" quilts, which were only trotted out for special occasions. But of all the antique materials, fabric is the most fragile, and is why fabric antiques were the first to disappear and are so hard to find today.
