If you are out and about and happen to see the latest issue of Selvedge Magazine, be sure to pick up a copy! Our article, True Lineage: The Trials and Tribulations of a Ticking Collector (say that a few times fast!) was finally completed and published in the March issue. Written with details of how and why we collect ticking, along with a history of the striped cloth and some colorful tales of my friend, Elizabeth Baer from Bath - or Mrs. Ticking - as she's known in certain circles.
