Publisher's Comments

Steeped in traditions and memories, holiday textiles have long been a part of the magical fabric of Christmas. Grandma's festive tablecloth or Mom's holiday apron are vivid reminders. Greeting cards in a special Santa Claus mailbag, or presents on a felt-trimmed tree skirt can bring glowing holiday memories flooding back. Illustrated with over 440 festive color photos, this book captures the beauty, charm, and whimsy of a wide-range of Christmas textiles, both mass-produced and handmade, from the 1920s to 1970s. Included are handkerchiefs, tablecloths, tree skirts, tea towels, table runners, and aprons. Some packaging is shown and values for each item are provided in the captions. If you love Christmas fabrics, as well as poinsettias, Santa Claus, candles, and Christmas trees, this book is for you
