It’s been an eventful week for me… and a trip down memory lane! I spent last week at my grandmother’s house and inherited some lovely old crocheted afghans. They’re amazing and I want to care for them so they’ll keep lasting! So, this episode is dedicated to advice for taking care of heirloom crocheted items (plus some stories about my adventures!)

    Thank you so much for the info on caring for heirloom pieces. My Mother passed away earlier this year & I received an afghan that was a wedding gift from my Grandmother. It is a granny square piece with bright flowery colored middles and black edging. It has been repaired earlier, so now I just need to get it washed & freshened up a bit. I am new to listening to the pod casts so thanks again for the great information.
