VintageTrims.com of Fergus Falls, Minnesota recently completed the purchase of the fabric trimmings inventory at the old Trimtex factory in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Trimtex had a long history of manufacturing fabric trimmings in Williamsport going back to 1919. They had a large manufacturing facility and warehouse at 400 Park Avenue in downtown Williamsport, which was home to many textile companies including Scranton Lace Company in nearby Scranton, PA. Trimtex operated out of Williamsport for over 90 years until they ceased operations at the Williamsport facility. The brands of Trimtex included Carolace and St. Louis Trimming were sold and relocated. However, at the factory remained semi-loads of fabric trimmings going back decades. Williamsport was the center of the trimmings universe for a long period of time from the 1920s to 1960s when the fabric trimmings industry starting going overseas with the rest of the textile industry. At one time Trimtex boasted they had 60,000 patterns of narrow trims and lace in their library.
