I prefer to starch my linens, this makes them easier to handle in the sewing process. Be aware that starch breaks down and gradually turns linens yellow and then a nasty brownish color. It can hasten the breakdown of delicate antique linen fabrics and all but ruin a fine organza or lightweight linen in just a few years. But, since I am not a purist, I don't care.
