I picked up this tablecloth at a recent estate sale and didn't really realize just how nice it was. There were a couple stains in it that I was able to remove after a bit of work on it but it was so worth it. There are two areas where the thread has loosened but I think there is enough there that I can repair it.
I don't have any books on just textiles but plan to go to the library to see what I can find. I'm thinking part, maybe all of this was hand "loomed" because the stitching in the solid area seems too tight to have just done that by hand. I figure it out.
It does work for the table here but most likely works best on a rectangle table. I love it and looking forward to finding out exactly what it is.
Some of my photos are taken with the wrong side up only because I wanted to see how much extra stitching there was where I need it to do the little repairs. Does anyone know about these. We don't often see them here...just wondering.
Thanks and enjoy! Next time I'll set the table ;)
