Dampened a few to speed up the process! It takes a good ironing session to reacquaint oneself with fabric again - the good cotton, the linens, searsucker that doesn't iron and the delicate nylon organdie that required steaming.
Sorting, can't take them all....props to use...this is Mom's 1960s metal clothes hanger and she still uses it!
Then they have to dry before we cover and pack in van.
With help from a good friend and #2 son, we finally get packed, unloaded and set up.
I didn't know I had this many aprons either!!

Remember the first sewing and embroidery class in Home Ec class?! I think our aprons are now parts of Mom’s quilts but fortunately there are many, many gingham aprons out there that survived the scissors. What was left of the scraps...an apron made for Barbie.
Attend the Wild Rose Antique Show to see the final display…and it is a great place to shop for all things antique and vintage!
