I haven't tried it yet, but I love this idea. The explanation and demonstration was very well done and the finished napkins were beautiful.

This was very interesting. I have never heard of Heirloom napkins. I have made one of the quilts, she was talking about. It was a rail fence design and we sold rails of the fence for $5.00 and they wrote their names on it. Then I embroidery their names and made the wall quilt. It was for a lift for our medical center here in Millbrook, Ontario. I have also heard of heirloom table clothes and I have always wanted to start one. But that is one of those, "I will do that someday:. I enjoyed her instructions very much and I wll tell my friend who is just getting into embroidery. I know she will enjoy your instruction. Thank you so much.

I was hoping for making the napkins as well as the signature part. But it was still good.
