I am wanting to make a quilt using old embroidered table linens. Of course on a patch of eresser scarves, table cloths, runners, etc. I went to the local D.A.V. last week and found quite a few but all had a stain some where on the item. Of course right on a spot of nice stitching. I also got some nice tea napkins with cutwork, shadow embroidery an other nice stitching that no one does any more. The same day went to a garage sale of a 100 yr old woman who had tubs and tubs of this kind of stuff, selling for 25 cents to a dollar each. I tried soaking some of the items in Biz but didn't get any change. Then soaked them in Oxi clean and didn't notie any change. Does anyone know of a method other than lemonjuice,salt and sunshine? I don't have a place to lay anything outside. Thanks for any help.
