This morning at 3am I woke with a sense of panic...I didn't think anyone was breaking in the house, my kid's were fine, my husband was sound asleep too...I was panicked because I thought I could possibly slowly be poisoning my family or increasing our risk of cancer with my HUGE fabric stash because I am not washing the fabrics when I bring them home from the store! I know, this may sound absolutely crazy, but I was so worried.
1. I love the way it feels when it hasn't been washed.
2. I'm anxious to use it and don't want to take the time to wash.
3. I hate the way washing the fabric makes the raw edges all frizzled.
But...I'm really starting to think that for the health of my family I should wash my fabric when I bring it home and commit to washing a little bit of my stash each week. Which should result in less quilting fabric chemicals floating thru the air in my house.
I would love to have your thoughts on this matter. Please tell me if you wash/not wash, or if you have any great tips.
Happy Washing! janae'
