Serviette/Napkin Folding, Arrow Fold.

My interest in serviette folding was born on a wet day at my Grandmother's house, I was a pre teen and helping her with the ironing and watched while she ironed serviettes into wonderful shapes and neatly stacked them for use. I asked her to show me how and she did. Once you know several folds and people see them, they often have at least one other that you haven't seen before, you gain knowledge of the new one and on it goes. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This was is called the arrow fold and looks stylish on a plate. I tried this with both cloth and paper serviettes and found that the paper ones don't sit bend fluidly with the last step because of the prefolded crease in them, that can be easily remedied by an additional fold that turns that central crease into a neat point. As usual I hope that my step-by step photo will be easy to follow.
