Sharing with you ideas for using vintage fabric strip rolls

There are lots of strip rolls on the Rag Rescue website in the 'stash bags' section. Here are the ones I have listed today.

I thought I would share with you how you can use strip rolls to make a beautiful Christmas wreath. I found it at You could use this idea for any event not just Christmas. See the strip rolls above that I am listing today at the Rag Rescue website

If you have made anything with vintage fabric strip rolls, please let me know by leaving a comment. I often wonder if there is anyone out there reading this blog of mine.

I've just listed four pieces of 19th century French red toile fabric onto the website. The designs on them are timeless although the modern versions just don't have the correct feel or tones of the antique pieces.

Antique whitework embroidery samples at Rag Rescue

Dreadful weather here in Morecambe today. Rain, rain and more rain. I suppose that we should be grateful for small mercies and glad that we aren't in Australia with the shocking fires. I hope my customers in NSW are safe, we are thinking of you.

Here are some Antique whitework embroidery samples for you to have a look at. I listed them on the site this morning. They look great added to journals, bags, pillows, cushions and any of your projects.

Antique lace, vintage lace and lots more at Rag Rescue website

Wonderful antique and vintage lace at the Rag Rescue website today.
I recently bought a lot of lace which was acquired from 'The Hermitage' Country House in Northumberland. This house had been untouched for at least a century in fact it was a time capsule. The Morant family had thrown very little away and items were stored very well in attics etc. Some of the lace below came from that Country House.
