More Ornaments.

Need a gift for a fellow SAGA member? 

SAGANews featured an heirloom ornament in Volume 26 Issue 4 that would fit the bill.

We also featured a no-sew ornament in Volume 38 Issue 4. 

The perfect project to do with children!

SAGA National Convention 2019

SAGA National Convention was a few weeks ago now but it takes time when I get back to go through photos and edit them, plus I have to start work on the next issue of SAGANews!

But here are a few pictures from the event to enjoy. If you did attend, maybe seeing these will make you think about joining the fun next year when Convention will be in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Old Irons

Saw these old irons in the window of a dry cleaners while recently wandering the Upper East Side in NYC.

Would hate to have to iron and press heirloom garments with any of these even if they were new!
But our ancestors did and no wonder many women suffered bad burns.

Not sure what the gnome has to do with dry cleaner or irons!
