Vivian Bannister from Woody Point, Newfoundland 

'.....I  remember my great aunt wearing wrap apron when I was a young girl..It think they were made out of flour bags bleach and dye with onions skeins , or beets juice ,dandlin...she wore hers though the week to keep her dress clean.......

.........I was only a young girl of 9 or 10 she used her apron for so many things like picking up small wood chips to lite the fire gathering eggs , veggie form the garden. it kept her dress clean. ......

......The large cotton bags the flour came in after the flour was used up ,was wash and bleach and many things were made out of it. I still a set of pillow case that was given to me many yrs ago ......"
