Domestic bliss is to be found in a well-stocked linen closet. This book is about stocking that closet - and then using its contents to bring comfort and elegance into your home. The author, an expert on fine linens, tells us how to find and evaluate vintage household linens - the most intimate of antiques. We learn how to judge the age of a piece of fabric, how to spot darns and mends, how to tell machine-made lace from handmade. We learn how to care for our treasures: how to wash, iron and store even the most delicate scraps of lace. Most of all, we learn how use lace and linens at home. A thorough source guide tells us where to find these wonderful linens.
