    out of flour sacking in the late 1800s and early 20th century. Waste not, want not. Once mills figured that out they began selling flour in bags of printed calico.

    It is still possible to find quality fabrics, such as Guatemalan hand wovens or Harris tweeds, by the yard but they will cost you. And you certainly will not find them in JoAnn, Walmart or any other big box store.

    You forgot about the cost of lace when it was hand tatted rather than machine made.
