  1. Good morning. This is probably a dumb question but I thought I'd ask anyway. There was a woman on stage selling a few hanks of what she thought was linen. I was wondering if anyone knows who I'm talking about and if she still has it for sale. I'll check back often for a reply. Thank you for reading.
