The Yellow~Ribbons Project - Quilters who care

Date: Fri, 11 Jan 2002 09:38:21 -0500
From: "Nancy Roberts" <aquilter@alltel.net>

The question on removing a water stain from the whole-cloth quilt
reminded me of a Household Helps column I read in this morning's newsaper. The author recommended using a bleach product called Brilliant Bleach which she said is a peroxide stain remover especially suitable for colors. You add the product, fill the washer, add the item and then let it soak. She gave
the 800 number which I can retrieve from the recycle bin if anyone wants
it. She also suggested checking your supermarket laundry section. I'm
unfamiliar with this product. Anyone heard of it or use it? Nancy Roberts

This sounds interesting so I looked on the web for more info. Their
web
site is http://www.soapworks.com. There is a link to stores that
carry the
product. Trader Joe's is one of the stores listed, and I will be near
one
next week, so I'm going to pick up some of this to try!

i thought it was great...gave me a personal sense on the development
of the
mills of new england...
the program was about mills and how they were built and how they
ran...
DavidMc writes books like that "how things work".
the program was not really about the textiles or the
workers....although i
thought it was great how he included the feisty women who wanted
better
conditions...
i'e visited the textile museum(and the quilt museum) in lowell
mass...if you
get the chance to visit...they are both great.

It's the fast-forwarding through the commercials that really takes up
the precious quilting time! I can't believe how
much more I get done when I turn off the TV/VCR.
My other problem is that I have lots of tapes of PBS documentaries
and I feel compelled to watch them and learn all
those important things. But they frequently need to be seen, not
just heard, and that doesn't work well with sewing.
(And then there's also that old guilt thing about feeling the need to
multi-task and get more accomplished, and the need
to justify the time spent on something purely for pleasure. Too much
to do, so little time. But that's another can of
worms!)
Audio tapes are the way to go.

Hello all-I am trying to find the original sources for Nancy Cabot
patterns
called Spanish Squares (appeared in the Chicago Tribune 12/1/37) and
Arabic
Lattice (appeared in the Tribune 9/24/34). One or both may in a
Cabot book.
Can anyone out there help me?
Many thanks-
Pepper Cory

Cheryl, Just checked out the photos of your beautiful chintz quilt.
Thank
you so much for getting them scanned, on a web page and annotated. A
very
generous gesture that makes this group so special and important to me
in my
daily quilt learning curve.

Oh, those blues, those chintz blues...

I happened to look at the ingredients list on the all fabric bleach =
bottle when I was doing laundry today and the main ingredient is =
hydrogen peroxide - could it be the same thing as Brilliant
Bleach?=20

"a bleach product called Brilliant Bleach which she said is
a peroxide stain remover especially suitable for colors"

Dunno about this stuff. Sounds just like Oxy-Clean:

I did a test of Oxy Clean (at 1/4 the strength recommended for laundry use) on some madders and double pinks which were in mint, unused condition.. The color in the madders smooshed togther into something muddy, and the double pinks turned blueish. No thanks. I'll stick to Biz.

If you would like to listen to BBC Radio programmes from the UK you can go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/# to hear programmes live online while you surf or sew. This page shows you all the programming options, within which you can look for what interests you. For drama, discussion etc. I recommend Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/atoz/

The daily scheduling for Radio 4 is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/cgi-perl/whatson/search/daylist.cgi?tmp=whatson/sdk/rad io4/daylist_radio4.tmpl&day=Today&service_id=49700. (This is so long you may need to cut and paste the address)

When friends know you are obsessed with quilts they send you articles about quilting and quilters printed in their local newspaper. Today I received one published in the Riverside, CA Press-Enterprise.

It is a very nice article about our own Nancy Kirk. She's going to be in Ontario, CA to lead a session called "Tell Me About Grandma's Quilt" at the Road to California Quilt Show. Way to go Nancy. I'm going to the show - hope I get to see you there.
