    Learn the fascinating story of the flax-to-linen process in history, legend, song, crafts, lesson plans, and recipes. With 414 images, this comprehensive book dates back thousands of years, from how flax was cultivated in the Middle East and Europe, through its beginnings in America, to its use in the twenty-first century. Guidelines provided for planting, harvesting, breaking, spinning, weaving, and other processes. If you're a collector, flax tools, spinning wheels, and flax-made antique fabrics and linen make great collectibles. Make a rope bed, a linseed oil lamp, and even bake buttermilk biscuits with flaxseed. Discover the many great uses of this plant and the role it has played throughout the world. This is a great resource for history buffs, collectors, educators, and planters.
