FeedSacks 2022

YES! We get to do it one more time with big Farmgirl hugs and a huge shout out to Farmgirl, Laura Knippers, who has made a supply of feed sacks available to us.

As I have been re-reading the posts from our first two Feed Sack swaps last year while sitting in my cozy, warm house with more than enough to eat, I am reminded that on my very worst day during this never ending pandemic that we have been enduring for two plus years now, I have had it much better than the very best day of many who lived through those incredibly hard times of the Great Depression. I recently got an email from a teacher friend who said one of her nine-year-old students called this the Great Pandamnic. Love that one. So Farmgirls, lets participate in the FEED SACKS 2022 swap with an attitude of gratitude for our many blessings and to those who persevered during those times for ten plus years not two plus. Many of you have suffered tragedy and loss these last couple of years . . . you know who you are and this swap is dedicated to you hoping you will be reminded that tough times don’t last, but tough people do.

If you have been able to acquire a feed sack to use yourself, that’s wonderful and will allow more Farmgirls to join us. If not, let me know, send me your mailing address by private email, and I will send you one -- a random choice. First come, first served until the supply is exhausted. Sign ups until January 30. Partners posted January 31. Oh yes, mailing . . . How about a month to create our wonderful projects? So mail March 1.

Not sure what to make? I would encourage you to grab a cup of something warm to drink and sit a spell to re-read all the postings from the previous two Feed Sack swaps to familiarize yourself with the wonderful stories that were posted and the delightful projects that were made. Think aprons, vintage or retro style table adornments, clothes pin bags, broom and flyswatter aprons, pin cushions, book marks, stuffed toys . . . . you get it :-) Hopefully we'll have more wonderful stories this go-around too.

I will post an updated list of movies, books and reference links as this swap progresses. As an added bonus when you sign up, I will send you a marvelous PDF file of a vintage rick rack book – rick rack and feed sacks go hand in hand, you know. You’ll be dazed and amazed at all you can do with rick rack. And starting on page 15, you’ll find projects that lend themselves sew well to feed sacks.

Looking forward to seeing y’all here. Big hugs,
Jean

The 1930’s Flour Sack, by Colleen B. Hubert

In that long ago time when things were saved,
when roads were graveled and barrels were staved
and there were no plastic wrap or bags,
and the well and the pump were way out back,
a versatile item, was the flour sack.

Pillsbury’s best, mother’s and gold medal, too
stamped their names proudly in purple and blue.
The string sewn on top was pulled and kept
the flour emptied and spills were swept.
The bag was folded and stored in a sack
That durable, practical flour sack.

The sack could be filled with feathers and down,
for a pillow, or t’would make a nice sleeping gown.
it could carry a book and be a school bag,
or become a mail sack slung over a nag.
It made a very convenient pack,
That adaptable, cotton flour sack.

Bleached and sewn, it was dutifully worn
as bibs, diapers, or kerchief adorned.
It was made into skirts, blouses and slips.
And mom braided rugs from one hundred strips
she made ruffled curtains for the house or shack,
from that humble but treasured flour sack!

As a strainer for milk or apple juice,
to wave men in, it was a very good use,
as a sling for a sprained wrist or a break,
to help mother roll up a jelly cake,
as a window shade or to stuff a crack,
we used a sturdy, common flour sack!

As dish towels, embroidered or not,
they covered up dough, helped pass pans so hot,
tied up dishes for neighbors in need,
and for men out in the field to seed.
They dried dishes from pan, not rack
that absorbent, handy flour sack!

We polished and cleaned stove and table,
scoured and scrubbed from cellar to gable,
we dusted the bureau and oak bed post,
made costumes for October (a scary ghost)
and a parachute for a cat named jack.
From that lowly, useful old flour sack!

So now my friends, when they ask you
As curious youngsters often do,
“before plastic wrap, elmers glue
and paper towels, what did you do?”
tell them loudly and with pride don’t lack,
“grandmother had that wonderful flour sack!”

Found this at the below website. Interesting tidbits on the feedsack.

So, fear not, get on board and join us for some feedsack fun.
