Welcome to our web site! We're glad you found us.

We are Pat and Violet, two friends who share a passion for cross-stitching and chocolate. We began developing a process for hand-dying linen in an effort to make our two passions compatible. We were having a hard time washing chocolate out of other linens without damaging them, and we weren't about to give up either of our favorite hobbies.

Lakeside Linens was born when we began developing linens that were washable and as color-fast and light-fast as possible. It was a natural step to begin creating designs inspired by our fabrics.

You can purchase our products from your local needlework shop. Local shops are the cornerstone of the needlework industry and we encourage you to support them. However, if you have difficulty finding our products please contact us directly and we can refer you to the shop nearest you.

We invite your questions, comments and suggestions about our products and web site. We also welcome ideas for new colors from stitchers, designers and shop-owners.

Thanks for visiting!

- Pat and Violet
