I will be at Fort Frederick this next weekend with some ‘leftovers’ at great prices! I’ll be down in camp...come find me!

12/17/2018

Many thanks to all of my customers these last 20 years.
It has been a joy to meet you at events and through emails. I wish for all a happy holiday season and a fantastic new year.
I hope to see you soon...casually!

My retirement sale is going on, from now till December 15th. 25% off Fabric and Patterns! Please email all orders to [email protected], and I will invoice you, using actual shipping.

Many thanks again for all of your support and friendship over the last 20 years!

10/10/2018

My dear friends,
After 20 years selling linen I have decided to retire. I appreciate all the support and friendship that my loyal customers have given me, and want to offer a 25% discount on all in-stock fabric and patterns. All orders must be emailed in, and I will issue a PayPal invoice charging exact shipping (unless you are picking it up). The sale will apply from Oct 15 through Dec 15, and orders will be filled in the order received beginning Oct 15.

I will miss the convenient opportunity I've had to spend time and chat with all of my customers
at events and hope we will continue our friendships as I am not leaving the hobby. You'll find me teaching, weaving, sewing and hearthcooking as well as supporting the 6th PA and the German Rgt. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your support and kindness through the years. I wish you all the best.

Sincerely,
Ruth Konrad

My patch of Black-Eyed Susans keeps growing year after year--so much so that I was thinking about the lovely patch of yellow in my garden while moving my linens around. In honor of my flowers, the sunshine, and the spirit of Summer, all of my linens with yellow are on SALE at $8.00/yd. Check out the website. Through August 31, 2016!

The new linens are on the website! All but the handkerchief linen...l only found a little bit that was satisfactory, so I have to measure it and put quantities on the website too. Maybe later today or tomorrow. If you'd like swatches on the newbies, just send a SASE to me. The full set is $3.

06/28/2016

Back from the big Apple with new linens! If you'd like a set of the 'newbies' (the 10 new swatches) just send a SASE to us at: PO Box 444 Bally PA 19503 and I'll send them out!

You should SEE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUES, MANY HAVING TO DO WITH SEWING, AND EMBROIDERY!!! Fantastic lectures too (though I have to man my stand....)

I hate being this cold for so long. Sorry, pulling no punches here. Soooo, I've just finished cutting orders and am mulling over the next potential weaving project. This is a pic of some 'creepy' fabric we saw in Rotenburg ob der Tauber in Germany in December. It is an over-twisted weft that is pulled out periodically to twist back on itself...and makes a 'hairy' cloak. It is what executioners used to wear (hence the 'creepy'). I've re-twisted some commercial yarn and am thinking about weaving a sample of this as a challenge to myself. What are your thoughts?

I'd like to offer all of you free shipping on orders over $50 through the end of January!! I LOVE completing projects--now I can start a new one! Happy sewing everyone!

Hi Everyone! For those of you who have admired my ladies' timepiece that I wear at events, I have them in stock! They are 1" in diameter and come with a chain (though I wear mine suspended from linen tape). The photo shows front view, open, and back. The price is only $20. Christmas orders must be in before 12/16, and I am offering free shipping on orders over $100!
Have a peaceful Advent (pre-solstice or just December) everyone!

I found a perfect stamp! It reminds me of the gowns & jackets with embroidered 'sprigs' scattered over them. I did a 'quickie' paint job (but 18th century painted fabrics were very sloppy!) but plan to embroider the next one. Maybe on pockets.....! What are your ideas? The ink proved to be very washable. These samples have been through the wash and dryer...

We have added some of the Kannik Pattern line! Check them out on our website www.libertylinens.com!

Ok, here is the shirt I made! (Really, it's been done a while now, I just HATE to have my photo taken. I kept hoping someone my size would visit...and I could say: Hey, could you try this on while I take a photo?" ) but it never happened. So, I finally broke down. I also washed enough to make a kerchief for my gown, so I really have been sewing! I figured this top would also make a nice bathing suit cover-up.

For those of you on my mailing list, watch for my Labor Day sale! If you'd like to be on my mailing list, please drop me an email: [email protected] or [email protected] and ask to be on the mailing list (we have to ask).

Weeding and sewing!
This time it is a contemporary top in (what else?!) LINEN! I'll post when It's done...shouldn't be too long-I'm using a SEWING MACHINE! (Go figure). Happy sewing to you, my friends :)

One more day of substandard technology! Tomorrow (fingers crossed) my domain shifts to a new server. YAY! So, if you go looking for the site and it is still showing bad cues, please let me know. Right now the 'name servers' are still not right, but the site is there. On my search engine, it shows that it 'doesn't exist' at the top of the screen, but down below on the listings, the site is the first one to come up after the paid ads! Thank you everyone for your patience with this. I will do a celebration SALE when this is all done!!

Well, another great time at Fort Frederick Colonial Fair! We had sun, rain, more sun...and took home DRY canvas (always a plus). We met so many old friends, put faces to familiar names, and made new friends as well. Thank you all for your kind words, your laughter, and your support of our small business. Please send photos of your finished projects, we enjoy seeing the ideas come alive!

04/07/2014

I spent the weekend with a lovely group of ladies taking a workshop on gown-draping, hosted by Pottsgrove Manor, and taught by Jenae Whitaker from Colonial Williamsburg.
If you've ever taken a class like this, you KNOW how stressful yet exciting it is! I was stressed and I wasn't even making a gown! After Fort Fred maybe we can all get together and finish them!

03/06/2014

Saturday Liberty Linens will be at Peter Wentz Farmstead for their School of the Soldier! Check out the newest linens!!

Greetings all!
For those of you who may not know, I had surgery on my right hand, primarily to repair a very painful arthritic joint, (and carpal tunnel while they were at it). Unfortunately the cast has left me unable to drive or use that hand at all, so I won't be able to go to the Battle of the Hook. I will offer free shipping on all orders over $50 placed between Noon on Friday Oct 18 and Midnight Sunday Oct 20. Best wishes to all.

Miss Kimberly Boice was so kind this past Spring in helping me at Fort Frederick....and what she wanted was a modern LINEN dress! This is the first mock-up of the bodice with a trial muslin collar. More to come :)

05/03/2013

I need to say a very special Thank You to Kimberly Boice who helped me at Fort Frederick. With my hand problems as they are, I couldn't have done it without her expertise and excellent humor! Kim, my heart-felt thanks!
