        I just bought 5 yards of bleached linen from fabric store for my
        underdress that will (someday) accompany my bliuat. I love the feel,
        look and smell of what I got from them. After I washed and dried the
        fabric it wasn't too much a pain to iron as I got the 2nd lightest
        weight. I will post pics of what it looks like finished. I plan to
        order from them again and if you havent checked them out do so soon
        if you plan of making garb with linen! Swatches are free (within
        reason of course) so thats a great bonus. I got a discount card when
        I ordered some swatched that went toward my purchase (i'm all about
        the bargain!!) They do run specials and have a mailing list for that.
        I like thier "doggie bag" specials which are pretty resemble a
        remnants section at a offline fabric store. So if you are not sure if
        you like (or perhaps possibly allergic?) or to just get a bigger
        sample than the swatch that is the way to go also.

        electric bill. then you would only have to dry it once. i have never
        tried this and was wondering if any one else has if not i will.
