    I think it is so sad when I find things like this. I rescue quilts all the time and embroider items. Great find.

    Dang YOU are so lucky!!!
    I love the old linens!!

    Soak stained linens in Oxyclean.
    Be sure it is well dissolved first.

    I had an old piece that I took to a professional fabric restorer-- not sure of his correct title. He works with fabric thousands of years old for Chicago museums and he said the Oxyclean is similar type process to what he uses.
    That's a great endorsement for me!!

    Hope it comes clean for you! I would have snatched it too! I bought a quilt recently at a flea market for $20. It had stains and what I thought were mildew stains as well. I never thought it would come clean and I planned to cut it up if it didn't. To my surprise, it came out gorgeous! What a steal!

    There is a rust remover that you can buy at the grocery store. Ususally next to the silver, etc., polish. Great fomd.

    Ok, great find. The rust remover is for spots in fabric I think.

    If you have trouble with the rust stains.....soak them in lemon juice. We had some 100 year old christening dresses we inherited with rust and the lemon trick....worked wonders. They came out like new. Looks like you happened on a really lovely vintage piece.
