Question Machine Embroidery blanks

I'm new to embroidery, and am wondering where everyone gets tea towels, aprons, napkins, etc. to embroider on. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

I have gotten a few at Michaels...but beware of the quality. I would prewash then before embroidery is done as some bags and T-shirts have shrunk and also some towels. There are also some online places if you do a search but I haven't tried them.

I get my tea towels from Amazon. I usually prewash, starch and iron before embroidering.

I love to embroider kitchen towels and I usually buy mine on EBay. I buy the Irish Linen ones. They are so much nicer and will hold up for many years like new.
I also have ordered from Amazon on line the striped ones. Now, there was a thread where some gals were getting them from a Tractor supply store that they swore were the best.
Also I have bought from Martha Wahington who sends me e mails

I am sure most of the big stores would have napkins. Like bed bath and beyond or J C Penny's, Even Wayfair.. They are on line.
