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.

    Your petersham ribbon is awesome and so is the Sewing Place

    Posted by Marlene Kennedy on Sep 26th 2018

    The petersham ribbon is so beautiful and the Sewing Place is so very considerate. When I ordered the ribbon they gave me a discount which was really generous. Again, the ribbon is beautiful. Please note that #8 is a true red with some yellow in it. It is not orange by any means but it is not a Christmas red. No problem with that, just some red clarification as all of our computer screens display color differently. If you need to be sure on your color, order a colorcard :)

    This is GREAT petersham! Used the 3/8” to shape the inside neck edge of a boucle jacket, and the 1/4” for trim. Shapes very nicely and great weight!

    This ribbon is wonderful. It comes in a wide selection of colors and widths, is beautifully made (no hanging threads with this product), and has a lovely sheen.
    It washes well, is easy to sew and very pliable.
    Highly recommended.

    Petersham Ribbon - Sand Dollar

    Posted by Karen Lundgren on Apr 10th 2018

    I was struggling to find the exact color for my daughters wedding and had ordered ribbon from another site that was not the same color as the website. The ribbon color on Petersham Ribbon was accurate based on the web image, and the product came in a timely manner.

    Light grey

    The ribbon was advertised as perfect for wedding apparel. I purchased this ribbon for a flower girl dress I'm making for my 3 yr old granddaughter. I am hoping it will go well with natural Swiss cotton Nelona as a sash. The narrower ribbon will be used thru beading insertion applied to the bodice. Cannot comment on construction as I haven't started yet.
