Fun with Appliances

The Red Shoes writing group uses prompts. They meet at Northern Woman's Bookstore and so it is easy to reach for a book, open a page and choose a phrase.  One day, not long ago, up popped the words "washing machines" and so expanded to "appliances" and then the pens flew.


Samantha Najarro describes her two grand mothers, one Polish and the other Spanish. 

The members of the writing club and members of the audience shared their meditations on laundry, on treadle sewing machines, new fangled washing machines, dishwashing and so called "labour saving devices."

Katja Maki relates how that old treadle clothed her sisters until one sister took it over to become fashionable.
