I used to make them. Then, I found a bunch for next to nothing at a yard sale!

Thanks for the replies. Great information. I'm off to a 50% going out of business sale today to get fabric.

I've learned to get patterned fabric; doesn't show little stains so badly.

You can choose your own fabric (or use fabric from old clothes, towels, etc) when you make your own napkins. You'll find links to tutorials all over the place if you Google the subject.

A fairly easy one is here:

This one is a little fancier:

I bought mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond. 67% cotton, 22% polyester and 11% linen. They look new after over a year of regular use. Spots are quickly rinsed and air dried before going in the laundry basket.

I use a blend from Penny's. I do spray the stains B-4 washing, if needed.

Changing to cloth napkins seems to make sense. What type is best to get? Cotton gets wrinkled, but polyester gets stained. Advice?
