Petersham Ribbon

$1.49 - $29.95
(74 reviews) Write a Review

The world's finest woven edge Petersham ribbon. 100% Rayon, washable, dry cleanable, colorfast, less than 10% shrinkage. Petersham is often confused with grosgrain ribbon but the important difference is that the Petersham has a scalloped edge which allows you to shape the ribbon. See Sandra Betzina's book Power Sewing Step-by-Step for a neat, easy to make waistband facing using Petersham.

Be sure to preshrink where necessary before use with steam or by spritzing with water and pressing with iron set for rayon.

Priced and sold by the yard. Order minimum is 1 yard.

All of our ribbon is sold in increments of one yard. So if you order “1”, you’ll get one yard, “2” and you’ll get two yards. Our website does not calculate in fractional yards (for example: 1 ½ ). Be sure to choose Color and Width, then how many yards you’d like.

Actual Ribbon Color Card Available - $29.95

When ordering the Color card: You need to select the Color Card option in BOTH the Color and Width drop down menus. It's the top item in the list.

    This ribbon is of great quality and silky softness. I have ordered many yards of this petersham ribbon in several colors and have never been dissatisfied. I am very happy with my purchase!

    Great quality ribbon with excellent color selection

    Posted by Susan Monaghan on Jan 30th 2021

    This is perfect ribbon for jacket trims or to be the base for jacket trims. Heck, if there is any left, it can be used to wrap presents! The quality is so much nicer than you the grosgrain one finds in fabric stores these days, and the Sewing Place has a very wide range of colors with a color chart available to aid in the correct choice. This is my go to store when I start assembling the notions for any sewing projects.

    Petersham Hatband

    Posted by Paul Poche on Dec 14th 2020

    I bought this ribbon to put a hatband on a western style hat I shaped. It turned out nicely! I was amazed with the ease I could work with this ribbon. I am glad I found it here!

    Wonderful quality ribbon

    Posted by Susan Monaghan on Dec 9th 2020

    I buy this ribbon for any jackets I make where I will be designing trim. The quality is excellent and is real gros grain ribbon--not the rayon junk you find in craft and fabric stores these days! I have bought several colors, and it is great to have an excellent color table on the website so one can check ribbon colors against the fabric.

    Petersham Ribbon

    Posted by Lisa on Sep 12th 2020

    The ribbon is high quality and arrived quickly. I sewed it on the back neckline and shoulders on a t-shirt to keep its shape. Worked out well. Nice selection of colors.
