Vintage embrodiered pieces

Wall hangings, kitchen linen, clothes, sheets and even sacks were beautifully hand embroidered. Sometimes for the dowry chest, sometimes, as in the case of vintage grain sacks, for functional purposes and sometimes to decorate the home. Wallhangings, often with a slogan would be hung in the kitchen, on the wall alongside the bed to add warmth and in the best room for decorative purposes.
