Time to Shine - Gingham Glory

Gingham Glory

For years Linda has collected vintage table linen but it spent most of its time stored in boxes.  So she came up with the idea of rescuing the best parts and giving them a new lease of life.  So the first range for her shop was Linda's Linens, handmade cushions from vintage embroidered table linen and trimmings such as ric-rac, bobble fringe, buttons and ribbons to ensure each one is unique.  She also made other items such as drawstring bags, pin cushions and seasonal gifts throughout the year.   

Linda has always loved vintage items and although a lot of her collections have moved on she has always kept her linen, some of which came from her grandmother.  Having been inspired by the increased interest in crafting and sewing Linda looked at what she could do that was different.  She had forgotten how much pleasure sewing gave her and double so as it gives me a good excuse to go out hunting for old table linen, retro fabrics and lovely trimmings!
