Advice re. mending vintage tablecloths
Hope you all can help me.
I have some beloved vintage tablecloths (40’s, 50’s and 60’s) that I love to use for special occasions. Despite careful laundering, little holes appear, and in one case, a several inch area has only the threads in one direction and they’ve “disappeared” in the other direction. I’d like to mend these holes before they get bigger.
Tried iron-on bondex but the edges begin to come loose after a wash or two. It’d be faster to do something by machine, but if it’d be better for the tablecloth, especially the more heirloom ones, to do someothing by hand, I could. Your suggestions would be most welcome.
many thanks in advance, Susan
