Saved by the DELL !!

Following a spectacular morning with my lovely Rachel yesterday morning I was feeling a little worn around the edges so saved my blog for today.

I had a tip off that a local charity shop for Willen Hospice have some lovely vintage pieces so along we went.The tip was good…. YEEEEHA!

I think Rachel may have near lost the will to live but was a darn good sport about it, so I felt it only right and proper to take her back to mine, fill her full of Latte and talk sewing! How good of me, she doesn’t sew! In my mind I was doing a public service. By listening to me droan on she was able to zone out and enjoy some well earned alpha brain wave time, maybe it was that state of relaxation that made her fall asleep 😉

Why saved by the DELL ?

Amongst my purchases were some really funky 50’s designs. Only when I had a good look last night did I see the label Fibreglass!!! REALLY! Of course, like every other needlecraft move I make, I reported this detail to Del. I woke this morning to a mail concerned about what may happen if I cut this fabric…. small fibres and potential to get into airways. Immediately jumped on the internet whilst giving myself a very firm kick up the rear for not engaging my brain sooner (thankfully hadn’t cut into it).

Newly gained knowledge is that this product was considered a wonder product in the late 50’s. Non Crease, retains whiteness, fire retardant to name a few BUT we now know that it can cause dermatitis if handled too much.

A quick phone call to Willen and they were horrified to hear this could present a hazzard to health. A full refund has been approved …. I shall still spend it in the shop. Willen is such a valued resource in our community I couldn’t take the money and run. They have been totally honourable and they, like I have learnt something new. So really we were both saved by the DELL! x
