        Thanks for sharing - I knew most of that but did learn a tip or two! While reading the comments, I never thought to take a photo of the end of the bolt. Good idea!

          Sometimes you take small things for granted. I was a fabric manager for 20 years for a major chain store (now out of business) so those bolt tops gave me all my ordering info, not to mention important info for customers. I do remember teaching new help how to read those tops.

            Thank you for this info on reading the end of bolts of cloth. Much appreciated. Sourcing for fabric I have gone to good will or thrift stores and bought sheets and pillowcases and very large clothes and jeans for fabric use. It is such a lovely luxury to have the bolt of fabric to tell me the info. I am grateful though that the decision to pre wash or not wash was moot with the previous sourcing of fabric-- I will find something to be thankful for in scavenged, recycled and used and loved finds. Thanks so much for this helpful info. I think the idea of taking a picture of the end of the bolt to put with your fabric is awesome. Let me add that the receipt you get tells you how many yards you bought as well... but make a copy of the receipt to put with the picture because receipts fade rather quickly.

              Making a copy of the receipt is an excellent idea. Thanks, Luanna.
