The Quirks We Have

How ridiculous does this sound?

I spent hours this weekend using a seam ripper to get garment tags out of my clothing. Then, because the tags are sewn in with seams stronger than the garment has itself, I now have a pile of mending to do.

I refer to the above “quirk” as performing tag-ectomies.  The reason behind it all is that I absolutely cannot stand any scratchy tag touching me. I have no clue what they call the fabric they use for tags – maybe, it isn’t even fabric. 

These days a tag-ectomy consists of removing two tags from the back of the neck and one or two sewn into the side seams.

One of the neck tags is large and boldly announces the manufacturer. The second neck tag may or may not tell you where the garment was made, the fabric ingredients, and who can read that small print anyway?  The side tag(s) has laundry instructions that can be quite humorous. 

‘Dry Clean Only’ should never be instructions for 100% cotton blends.  Most of my dresses and sweaters say “Wash in cold water. Dry flat.”  I suppose I am going to have to purchase a couple of hammocks because I only have 2 guest room beds (which are busy organizing my stash and designing quilts at the moment).

Anywho, that is my rant about tags.  Thanks for listening.

 

So…  What is YOUR quirk?  We really want to know! Enjoy a rant in the comments
