Vintage Needlework Ads #3



"Who says you can't machine-wash-and-dry a rug you've made?! Columbia-Minerva says you can and should...to keep it lovely and lively longer...just as long as you've made it of the one-and-only Columbia-Minerva Washable Rug Yarn. It's made of 100% Acrylic and absolutely sensational for other practical projects such as bikinis and bags...slippers and sweaters... and more. Great idea for the way you live today!"

I'm loving all of your vintage posts - both ads and patterns. And thanks so much for getting back to me on the yarn weight for the sweater a few posts back. Cheers!

But I love the idea of a bikini being 'practical'!
