I found this ticking, which used to be used for pillowcases in a shop in Horsham.
A friend tells me that new ticking has the pattern printed on, rather than woven in.
The long length of old lace was being sold as a scarf in a charity shop in Petersfield for £3.
My friend Ann has just been to Bruges. She says even the tiniest bits of old lace are sold there for lots of money so I want to use and appreciate old lace with more reverence.
