We've used cloth napkins for many years. They feel nice and look pretty on the table. When I was in Boulder to film my segment of The Quilt Show I got to go to dinner with with friends. We went to The Kitchen – a trendy place with good food and a nice ambiance… and cloth napkins that looked a little bit different.
Upon closer inspection I realized that they use light-weight cotton dish towels for napkins. Isn't that a good idea!
