Firstly, I want to apologize the sending of a discussion in a private
e-mail to the digest - I was in a hurry to leave the house and didn't
realize until seconds too late what I had done, and I think another whole
message that seems now to have been repeated three times got on again.
Sorry! I personally don't like this software that keeps the whole message
when you press "reply."
Back to drawn thread -- Melinda -- I'm now very interested! You mentioned
that you are using the DMC broder and LINEN THREAD-- ah, the magic words!
Where do you get it? I did get some from a company on the web, but can't
remember where -- but it turned out to be 50 weight and 30 weight stuff --I
need 40 weight. I've also gotten a couple of very helpful e-mails that
will lead me to some places on the web to look.
They have damask/looking linen fabric for tablecloths here -- it's quite
lovely, and when you are lucky you can find it in widths wider than 150
cms. But you know, the material is not "treated" for our US washing
machines -- or rather it is not processed in the way true damask/German
damask is. The German damask would never "fluff" after washing like the
Russian stuff does -- it's as if the material has "bearded" somewhat after
our sturdy US washers get done with it. On the other hand, I can't afford
German damask and with a little magic sizing spray the Russian stuff is
just fine. We have a conference length dining room table for "guests" --
the tablecloth has to be 350 cm. US tablecloths that size are hard to
find, expensive and often made of blends that seem to resist getting the
stains OUT -- red wine spillage is a big problem. My husband now calls me
the "red wine police" -- after the last dinner guest leaves I'm always
running to the table w/the soda water and salt to check the "red wine"
Thanks for the discussion on copying. It's a little more clear but still
somewhat confusing. How in the world does a company like Dover get/find
the stuff, print it, and then claim copyright because they have now
printed it .. interesting. Does that mean anyone of us could do the same
type of thing <g>? On the other hand, thank goodness that Dover does print
what it does, as it would be lost to most of us, for sure.
