Applique and hand embroidery are big around here. Because of that, we stock several tea towels so our quilters and crafters have something on which to work. In addition to using them for applique and embroidery, we have also used them as the center of placemats, the background for an appliqued pillow, and aprons. Towels are 100% cotton and measure approximately 20"x28". If you take the seams out, as I did when making placemats, you gain at least an extra inch on each side. Of course, you can always use them as is. They're hard wearing and look great in a vintage kitchen or even a more modern one.
NOTE: The checks are approximately 1/8" wide. The actual color isn't quite as bright as it appears on the photo and definitely more turquoise than blue.
Shipping: The cost of shipping will be adjusted for smaller purchases, i.e. fat quarters vs. half yards. Nothing extra is charged for handling. Purchases of two to four yards can be shipped via flat-rate Priority at $6.65. Excessive overcharging on shipping will be refunded after the package has been shipped. If you live within driving distance, you can pick up your order during normal shop hours to save the cost of shipping.
Tax: 9.5% will be added to items shipped to a Tennessee address.
