added. Line dry the linens, and
then safely iron them on a non-steam,
low-heat setting, testing a corner first.
In the event the staining is resistant to
subtle cleaning, it can be sun
bleached. Do not, however, starch
these items. It is safe to hang the
linens over a padded hanger, interleaving
with acid-free paper and covering
with an additional sheet of
paper. If a stain persists, simply enjoy
the piece as it is-with its evidence of
use and natural age.
A great deal of information exists on
the Internet regarding care and storage
of these items. Search "vintage
lace" to view thousands of interesting
items for sale, including cleaning products.
Some of these sites will offer
more instruction regarding care and
storage of linen and lace items.

The PAC award is a White House initiative
that encourages and supports community
efforts to preserve the nation's
cultural and natural heritage.
Nearly 250 communities in the
United States have received the designation,
which is based on commitment
to several principles that include:
strengthening regional identities and
local pride, preservation of important
assets, and support for the economic
vitality of the community.
According to Robert Oliver, banner
coordinator, many businesses, individuals,
building owners, and shopkeepers
partnered with the Cuero Development
Corporation in the historic district banner
One of the noteworthy efforts that is
being undertaken in Cuero is the
preservation of its 1903 Knights of
Pythias Hall, which when complete,
will be used as a heritage museum. The
restoration project received a grant
from the Texas Historical Foundation's
Jeanne R. Blocker Endowment in 2004.
Oliver reports that phase one of the
seven-step plan has been completed,
and that the group will soon move into
the next part of the project.
