EllynAnne had not wore an apron until 1999 when she was writing an article about a vintage apron. But after her awakening to the history of "the apron" she became THE Apron Goddess though her research about them and by collecting vintage aprons. EllynAnne has over 400 aprons in her collection!!
The Apron Book is wonderful to look at with it's many color photographs of aprons. It features new and vintage apron styles so you can catch up on your American apron history. Also, included in this book are stories and pictures from other "Apron Goddesses. I wrote up a full report on this book HERE.
The Kitchen Linens book gives us an up-close look at tablecloths, dishtowels, and napkins with details and histories as fine as the stories themselves. Embroidered or hemstitched, linens or oilcloths–these are the fabrics and the memories of our mothers and grandmothers. And each one has an endearing story and a vivid history.
