A good method before the linen, nap
kins particularly. Is cut, to wet It along
the hem and for about an inch on each
side with a small toothbrush dipped , In
soap suds. Not only will the thread draw

depth of hem. then turn back, crease, and
overcast neatly on wrong side. This makes
much neater effect than hemming In th
