Teal or Jade New Square Linen Tablecloth

Jade or Teal Square Tablecloth 75x75

Jade or Teal Square Tablecloth 75×75

This is a new tablecloth available now in my ArtFire studio. The color is a teal green/jade with a crème floral design. This handmade square linen tablecloth is designed for a 5′ table. Obviously and unfortunately, it is not being displayed on such a table since I don’t have that style of table. To give a visual of how much the drape is, I have positioned it on the corner of my standard height table as if it were actually placed on a 5′ square table.

This tablecloth is heirloom quality and something you would be proud to use and hand down to a daughter or granddaughter. The fabric is from the former Summer Hill Ltd collection of fine drapery and upholstery fabrics. These fabrics were not available in their day to the public but sold to high end designers, architects and upholsterers.

There are four yards of linen fabric in this tablecloth. The original wholesale price of this fabric was $45 per yard. The fabric could be considered vintage by some. Just depends on whose determination of what vintage is. Some say 20 years some say 25. This fabric was manufactured and printed in 1992, that would be 21 years ago. It was new still on the bolt when I purchased it. I have maybe 15 yards left and I will gladly consider making accessories to match this tablecloth if one so desires. Contact me through Artfire if interested. Use my link to Artfire on the top right of this page to contact me there.

Looking for the Red White and Blue?

Having a family get together this 27th day of May, Memorial Day?

Wikipedia has some interesting facts about how this day of honor for lives lost has come about.  Read about it here .

If you are looking to jazz up your home for the Memorial Day and, or upcoming Fourth of July, how about some red, white, and blue? Maybe a new handmade tablecloth and a spiffy new kitchen valance can brighten the atmosphere to a patriotic level.   Or, perhaps a new set of handcrafted placemats and a kitchen valance.

You have to be super careful not to burn your fingers pressing the handmade bias tape for the placemat set.

The woven plaid design fabric is upholstery grade 100% cotton. These items are machine washable; tumble dry; no bleach.

The fringing of the tablecloth is time consuming but I love that “homespun, Grandma’s house”  look.

All these products I have designed and created in a clean environment where no cigarette fumes of any kind exist.   I do not use formal patterns in my home decor designs.  When an idea strikes me for a valance, pillow cover or sham, tablecloth or curtain, my tape measure and scissors are valuable tools that get alot of use.  I get out the fabric, roll it onto my cutting sheet over the table, measure and start cutting.  Then it’s off to the sewing machine to put the pieces together.   Pressing every seam is the key to professional looking products whether they be home decor items or garments.  (I use commercial patterns for modern day garments.)

I have these products and more in other colors and fabrics at my studio on Artfire.  Click the link at the top left to browse all the products there.  Comments are welcome.

What’s the meaning of Snail Spit and Drama?

I received an email this morning notifying me that my lilac tablecloth was included in a collection by another ArtFire artisan.  The title of the blog post she wrote was baffling to me: “Oh Snail Spit and Drama”.   I copied and pasted the link to the blog site into a new tab and began to read.  And what a fascinating read it is.  Do you know where the color purple originated and how?  Take a peek at this blog post by Julie of Blue Morning Expressions on Artfire to be enlightened.  Many thanks to Julie for including my product and for the great article.

Medieval Looking Tablecloth

I am so excited to post my latest new tablecloth.  I’m calling it my Renaissance/Medieval Style.  So if you are in a re-enacting type group you’re sure to like this tablecloth.  It has an old world feel and look.  It is very heavy.  The yarn-like threads are very prominant in the weave.  The photo gives you an idea of the weave but the color is way off; it is an ochre color.  You’re probably saying I need  a real photographer.  See more photos with the actual color and get more info about this tablecloth on my ArtFire and Etsy sites.   Oh, and I’m also on MyBigFishBowl.com now as well.  Check it out!

Green Checked Tablecloth is Available

Take a look at my newest tablecloth on ArtFire and Etsy.  I can’t decide whether it should be called  “Retro” or ” Mid Century”.  Can anybody post a comment to clear the air on that one?  I really like the feel of this cloth; crisp yet drapes so perfectly.  Its a woven fabric not printed so I’ve fringed it which allows it to be reversible.

I’ve got another new one.  I’m going to call it a “Medieval” style cloth.  It certainly would be right at home in a renaissance kitchen.  Its heavy, its a very textured fiber.  It looks medieval.  Its wonderful; I like medieval stuff anyway.  Watch for this new tablecloth to be unveiled on my shops soon.
