Evening girls I need to ask for some help please.

I want to make a wall hanging in an embroidery hoop as a birthday card for my Aunt's 90th birthday.

The fabric I think I need is linen style, like the anti-macassers (sorry about spelling) another Aunt had, some where around boring beige in colour so I can machine appllique bits on there, it'll have to be machines as hand sewing is out of the question at this time.

Any ides what the fabric is called and where I can get some in mid beige? (Not white or dark linen in colour)

Last year we had a fabric shop at our quilt group that had quite a course fabric that is just what I want, but I can't remember the name of it.

Thanks

I think the fabric commonly used for this 'hoop art' is called osnaburg.

It is 100% cotton, but with a very loose weave, so that it resembles linen but is not as expensive. Linen, of course, is another good option.

I was going to suggest Osnaburg too, I think Marian is right. I think Cotton Patch sells it.

Ladies,

I knew you'd do it, as soon as I saw Osnaburg I knew that was the material I was looking for.

Thank you, I will get onto it straight away. The photos will be posted.
