    Amazon and Ebay might be worth a try.

    The last time I saw antimacassars was in Fleetwood market-near Blackpool.They weren't tapestry tho' Perhaps they are not so washable.
    How about making some? Plenty of washable tapestry fabric in Birmingham rag market.

    Thanks Cathidaw, I may give it a last try and pop into Laura Ashley, sometimes they do end of roll reductions on fabrics, so I might get something decent to make antimacassars myself. They may even have ready mades.


    Lex, I try to avoid buying on Amazon or eBay.

    Clicky thingy

    Traditional, and I thought quite reasonable on pricing

    Wonderful idea Cathidaw, we could start a little industry making antimacassars. I think doing the rounded shape for the arm caps might be tricky, but I can practice with left over fabric I have from curtains I made.

    I used to make themfor my Mum using the fabric inside out and pinning them to shape.Interestingly, with rounded arms I found the right fitted the left , and vice versa when turned the right side out.
    Big Yawn ...I hated doing them!.
