Linen Cottage evolved from a lifetime of collecting vintage and antique linens. Selling vintage in retail shops and online since 2003. The roots are deep. After years of repairing, preserving, buying and selling I have learned much about how we make our homes more personal by embellishing and caring for even the most humble things like embroidered pillowcases. I love history- not the school book kind but how things for the home were made and used. In these pages, I hope you will find pretty things that give you pleasure. Occasionally, a special old household “linen” will cross my path and I will offer it for sale.
Think of this- many of our treasured old linens, baby things and quilts are approaching 100 years old! We can no longer clean or store them like we did in the “olden days”, most of those methods are too extreme for old textiles. After many years of research and design, I have created Archival Quality Storage Solutions bags for storing your precious heirloom quilts, coverlets, baby gowns and antique handbags. These storage bags are a way for us average folks to store these things in the best possible way short of museum settings. I make these is small quantities in my studio using premium quality materials- they are my original design.
I will work with you personally to help you leave your legacy for the next generation with custom embroidered quilt labels, ways to safely store and care for your precious heirloom linens, bedding and baby gowns, and to clean and repair old linens as well as finish your handmade quilts.
