  1. I did not get these show notes up in time for Barbara's response. She very posted her suggestion to the blog postings for this project in my regular non-show sewing blog. Thanks again Barbara!

    Hi Laurel! Just listened to your podcast about the pattern copy-chatting, and I want to alert you to a possible problem when you stick your sewing pins into cardboard a lot. In addition to sewing, I knit and crochet a fair number of doilies. Doilies require wet blocking, and for this I lay them out on a piece of foam-core board covered with a towel, and I use my long, stainless steel quilting pins to secure them. At one point I had made several doilies in a short period of time, and then I did some pattern-cutting-out, and was wondering why so many of my pins wouldn't go through the fabric, when it dawned on me that pushing them through the cardboard was probably dulling them. So now I have two pin cushions--one for sewing, and one for blocking doilies and other knitted items.
