A Note from Your Moderator, Author Barbara E.Mauzy

Nifty and neat, pot holders are basically a late 1940s – mid 1950s phenomena. When we consider the brevity of their production, by hand no less, it’s wonderful that so many gay and gifty pot holders have survived for us to covet and collect. I was a collector of pot holders before writing Gay and Gifty Pot Holders, and my love for these unique treasures is shown on every page and in my house where I display them, stack them, and even box away piles of them. Join the fun as we admire what others have created and we now protect and cherish..

How many squirrels have you seen? The dress is lined in plaid fabric and both of these are particularly unusual and for sale. I just added more pot holders to our eBay store and there are more than 135 available and I have more to sell!

Happy Valentine's Day! Do you have a heart-shaped hot pad or one with hearts worked into the design? We'd love it see it!
