One Woman's Personal Belongings Her Linens

Once considered an important part of a woman's personal belongings, vintage cotton and damask table, bed and bath linens are often wonderful examples of the loom and needle arts. Textile weaving, lace tatting and embroidery could take craftspeople hundreds of hours; the resulting pieces were treasured, loved and passed along through families. And sooner or later, some are given up to the marketplace, for new owners to enjoy.

These are some of the pieces from my husbands family.
