Please help me find a photo of...

A slipcover with a box-pleated or inverted pleat skirt. I KNOW I've seen one around... somewhere, and I can't find it (or them). I want to do a multi-pleated skirt and am figuring out a scale that looks right for the chair.

Thanks! :)

frame to weave scraps

I don't usually ask to sell stuff here but I have a special item that needs a good home.

frames to stretch and impale scraps ( like silk ) to weave and embelish them for pillows. I have one pictured here : look in the upper left album, latest two pictures.


this is the first of thirteen frames I will list on ebay, trying to feel around for a use other than my own idea, and thinking that just one person would want them all. Sizes up to king sham size.

I had them made custom, the pins are heavy duty drapery pins cut off ( replaceable ) sunk into hardwoods and dove tailed.

It was fun, I used fuseables ( LOL ) on the back to limit sewing. Lost interest, don't have room.

slipcoverlady@juno.com email and I will send listing to you.

Just email me if you have a suggestion who would use this ? Thanks so much !

Cold Water Prewash

I am a big fan of Tide's Coldwater powder detergent - I'm using it for the fabric prewash of my current job* because test samples changed color in hot water (shrinkage was identical).

With energy costs UP, I thought I'd pass this on. I use Tide Coldwater for all our family laundry, and it's just as clean as ever. Consumer Reports rated it "excellent" if I recall correctly.
