I hate it when you have to miss a meeting and then people keep telling you how great it was. Last spring my friend Beth McLaughlin gave a presentation on textile conservation for a monthly Weavers Guild meeting, and I had a conflict. Darn! Just last week Jan Hayman told me about an anecdote that Beth related. Back when it was popular to wear a crisp white kerchief, women used a mirror or window to smooth and “iron” their kerchiefs after rinsing them out. I had to try this. I found a wrinkled handkerchief.
I soaked it, wrung out some of the water, and smoothed it on to a window.
My husband wondered about this–why was the handkerchief on the window?
But it worked great! Here it is after peeling it from the glass.
