I want to embroider some handkerchiefs for my wedding party. Does anyone know where to get good quality ones that would work for hand embroidery?
Thanks!!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I have, they are pretty thin and you can see some of the stitches on the back. I may have a few at home (I'm at work now). If you you want,  PM me your address and I will send them to you to try out (and if I still have them). That way you don't have to pay for any and you can see if you like using them

Traditional handkerchiefs are pretty thin, and any embroidery on them was reversable (partly to stop the back showing through, but mostly because both sides would be seen).  If you want to just make a piece of embroidery to stick in the pocket (rather than a functional hankie), just go to a fabric shop and buy whatever you like - a medium-weight silk satin is nice.

Try Dharma Trading. I've had good experiences ordering from them. Here's a link for handkerchiefs.
