PostSubject: Irish Linen Crochet thread...anyone want?   Wed Jul 29, 2015 3:44 pm

I've been wading through four boxes of sewing stuff from my elderly aunt.   She's had a stroke and is unable to sew anymore.  Neither of her daughters sew, so they gave her machine and "stuff".  Found five spools of 100% Irish Linen off white thread...look to be fairly old, so not sure if it's even good anymore.  I have no need for it...anyone here crochet lace or something?  I'll be glad to send it to you free of charge...just want it to go somewhere it will be used if possible.  Here's the pic:

Wow, that is pretty fine thread. Uses one of those hooks that have hooks too tiny to see. Guess that leaves me. With my eyesight, the bigger, the better! lol! Very generous of you to offer though.

Of course Sewn....I'd love to give it to anyone who can use it....I suspect my uncle brought it to my aunt years ago from Ireland. I'll be glad to mail it directly to her if she's ok with sharing her address with me.

Thanks TXM....he is getting big...at that really cute age!

I was given some linen thread that was over 100 years old. (back then I could work with stuff like that) It worked up just fine.
