    Where can I buy / order good quality tea towels

    Hi...would anyone know where I can buy / order white, cream or solid color quality tea towels so that I can sew strips of fabric on them to give as gifts? I ordered some from one place and the quality was not good, so thin and wrinkly that all I could do is use them as rags.

    Thanks so much!

    I have seen them at Joanns and Hobby Lobby. They are in the embroidery/cross stitch section. My friend orders his from here http://www.herrschners.com/searchpag...k=tea%20towels

    Missouri Star Quilt Co sells them but I don't know the quality. I found some nice ones at Walmart. I've washed them many times with hot water and bleach and they are still nice.
    Got fabric?

    Those flour sack towels are huge aren't they? I didn't even look at the individual towels. I just knew my friend bought them there and I did a quick "tea towel" search! Guess I should either a) stick to stuff I know a little more about or b) get the right information!!!!!

    Miller's Dry Goods in Charm, Ohio (Millersdrygoods.com) has Moda toweling by the yard. They may have what you want.

    Try AnnTheGran.com and AllAboutBlanks.com I think these are 2 embroidery sites that carry the nicer tea towels. There is another site but can't think of it. If I find it, I will post again.
