It’s easy to put a beautiful cloth on a table.
It’s a way to see and enjoy and touch fabric.
It’s a way to make a small and fleeting still life in the kitchen or dining room.

Tablecloths are a way to weave beauty into everyday life.
My mother gave me my love of tablecloths. She always did and always will have beautiful fabric on the table – sometimes several cloths at once. A table without a cloth would be naked. Here is a table at my parent’s home, between meals.
Tablecloths remind me of the people who gave them to me, such as this favorite one from my sister Karla.
They also remind me of places where I have traveled.
They are a way to celebrate the colors of the seasons.
Tablecloths look beautiful before and during meals.
I love to set the table. And of course the best part is sitting around, enjoying life with friends and family.
