Although this isn't genealogy related I thought some crafters out there might be interested in helping the clean up efforts for the oil spill.  Over at Craft Hope the blog tells how we can all make dish rags or dish towels to send that they can use to clean the marine life.  At least we can all feel like we are trying to do something to help!


  1. If this sounds bad, delete it. But it does seem a waste to use such pretty things for this clean up. Which will be thrown away. they need absorbent cloth for scrubbing, I know nothing about. I am just saying.

  2. A group of friends and I cut up cotton fabric with pinking shears and sent that with some bottles of Dawn dish soap. They ended up with 65,000 towels! Right now the project is on hold since they received so many.
