Question picot edge ribbon

I am looking for chocolate brown 5/8" or wider picot edge ribbon for a wedding cake. I have been all over the internet searching and am unable to find retail.

Welcome to the DIY forums Ladyred

Have you tried any local craft store? I've been in a craft store and they have A LOT of colors (more variaties vs. the internet). I think you might find better luck going to a local store rather the internet.

Yes I have tried all the local craft stores and sewing stores and they do not have it.

Try www.thesewingplace.com
Look under Petersham Ribbon and see if that's what you're looking for.

Thanks. But Petersham ribbon isn't what we are looking for. The ribbon needs to be picot/loop edged. It is to put on a wedding cake.

Petersham does have a picot edge, but maybe smaller than what you're looking for.

Annette, you did that too? I did too! Drove me nutts! Wonder why they don't make that! A LOT of colors but not brown nor chocolate or anything close to it!!!!

I'm actually really curious about this so I'm gonna drive over to a local craft store and take a look and if I can't find it I'm going to give the workers a piece of my mind and tell them to just give it to me! ha ha...no really, I'm gonna go check it out b/c it's bothering me A LOT!

Well...on a sad note...I did stop by a craft store and with one whole complete isle of ribbons...there were none. There were hardly even any ribbons at all that were brown or chocolate. Even checked another isle full of wedding stuff and there were ribbons...just no dark colored ones.

Sorry...no luck here.
