More Suggestions for Threads Articles
As I was doing my laundry today, I remembered something that I have often wished to see an article about. How to tell vintage hand sewn articles from vintage machine made. I picked up a lovely cutwork tablecloth for 25 cents at a yard sale and just can’t tell if it was hand or machine done. The guy selling it had said it belonged to a very old lady and that was all he knew about it. I also have a lot of vintage hankies and can’t tell which was hand and which was machine done. They are so well worked, it is puzzling. I do hand embroidery myself but none of what I do is as good as the work in these items, yet I’m not sure that machines were up to that kind of work either.
Started this as a new thread as the other was getting rather long, and I think I sent it a bit off topic. 🙂
