Domestic Goddess Ideas by Linda

Linda - our New England immigrant - never has anything that catches her off-guard.
Now she is the person everybody in these parts calls whenever they have problem.

Her column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back often for new secrets and tips.


The other day I was in the laundry mat with a neighbor.

She removed her baby's overalls from the washer, and, spotting a stain that didn't come out, sighed and threw the thing in the garbage.

Now that is an expensive child!

I can't imagine what she does with clothing that is ripped.

In the spirit of decreasing consumption and helping reduce waste, here are some guides to sewing and repairing both your clothes and your children's:

  • Singer's "Children's Clothes, Toys & GiftsCaring for Your Cherished Possessions" provides a clear and well illustrated guide on repairing your kid's clothes.
    You can get it in bookstores or at 800-328-3895.
  • Singer's "Clothing Care & Repair: Extending the Life of Your Clothes" is another great guide on sewing.
    You can get this one in the same way.

  • Do you have Domestic Goddess ideas or secrets to share or have a question?

    You can Write to Linda!.

    Include your first initial and last name and put the word DOMESTIC GODDESS in the subject.

    I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

    (Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)

    Hope this helps tame some of your day-to-day beasties a little.
