  1. Hi there!
    I am *not* researching genealogy but am searching for a tablecloth of needlelace made in Bologna, Italy for “Mr. Vanderbilt of New York” between 1899 and 1929. I have been unsuccessful in discovering if this still exists somewhere in the U.S. Any information is much appreciated!
    There are more (all I have!) details posted here on my embroidery blog:

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Jeanine,

      I’m not familiar with the tablecloth you mention. It certainly is absolutely exquisite! I myself cross-stitched for years and one of the pieces I did featured italian stitches. Of course, it was amateurish compared to the tablecloth 🙂 – you can see it at http://is.gd/bgl1e. Best of luck finding the tablecloth. I say contact Anderson 🙂
