Love this as it is handmade and not bought. Beautiful work and a lot of time went into it. Elise is amazing and deserves a reward for her dedication to period sewing using linens!

So much quality hand work in this piece. It surely deserves to win. I think commercial enterprises should be in a different category/competition. The fairness of this contest is surely something that will reflect on the company. I know it will for me.
