Ol Myrt

Mini-Myrt’s Great Face Mask Sew In

DearREADERS,
We’re going to host a special 20-minute Mini-Myrt at noon Eastern on Thurs, 26 Mar 2020 to be known as the Great Face Mask Sew In. Thanks to Kathy who inspired us, we will go through the directions provided by Joann Fabrics & Crafts here: https://www.joann.com/how-to-make-a-face-mask/042188731P321.html

Here’s the link for first time Mini-Myrt registrants: https://bit.ly/minimyrt

I’ll will be using fabrics from Ol’ Myrt’s stash. Why? Our local Joann’s had given out all kits out for the day, were short staffed and couldn’t make more at the time Mr. Myrt stopped by. 

Luckily the store’s website also provided a link https://youtu.be/VgHrnS6n4iA to the YouTube video embedded below. Please take Michelle D’s response to the project to heart. 

For our Great Face Mask Sew In, I’ll have signs to label the measurements so you won’t need to rely on the audio for directions. I’ll also have several in progress, to speed up the demonstration process.

CHALLENGE
I hereby challenge everyone with a sewing machine to make 5 masks each. You can do it! And to keep track of our efforts, here a link to a shared Google Sheet where you may enter your name and number created, updating as necessary from time to time. You’ll need:

  • 9×12 inch fabric
  • 9×12 inch flannel or interfacing
  • 7 inch length of elastic X 2 (one for each ear)
  • thread
  • straight pins
  • sewing machine
  • iron & board or pad

Here’s the link to the Google Sheet for reporting the number of masks donated:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ReVnfWeNer3pICkYnLQK6qPmQXyVMZPldW1_hkg2MnA/edit?usp=sharing

Donate the masks to your local Joann’s store, which will in turn give these to local hospitals.

If you value the interactive genealogy education provided in DearMYRTLE webinars, please consider donating. THANK-YOU in advance.

That was THEN, this is NOW


DearREADERS,
Last summer, Ol’ Myrt here moved to a different blogging platform. It was a matter of Blogger posts not transferring well to WordPress. I certainly did not want to break hyperlinks and spend weeks attempting to clean things up, so I created Myrt’s Musings.

Here’s where you will find DearMYRTLE:

Practical, down-to-earth advice for family historians. It’s all about sharing the latest info for finding documents providing evidence of those elusive ancestors.

DearMYRTLE and Cousin Russ recognize the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024. We reach out to all regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation or national origin with support for researching family and documenting cultural inheritance.

Announcing: DearMYRTLE’s new blog "Myrt’s Musings"

DearREADERS,

Yup! I’ve taken the plunge and designed a new blog called Myrt’s Musings. It will include all the news, hangouts announcements and opinionated moderating my DearREADERS have come to expect.

So head on over to


Frankly, I’ve had a ball experimenting with Wordpress. After consulting with 3 experts, we realize its impossible to import my old DearMYRTLE’s Genealogy Blog posts over without a ton of broken links. It had something to do with a custom domain redirect. Yikes!


Yes, I love Blogger, but I’m loving Wordpress, too. 

That sounds like a line from a country western song.


P.S. Genea-friend and fellow GeneaBloggerTRIBE member Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings said it’s ok if Ol’ Myrt here uses the word “musings.” I’m guessing he doesn’t have a copyright on the use of that word.

P. P. S. – I’ve got a whole new color scheme. Wonder if that means I’ll need to make a new quilt backdrop for our upcoming hangouts? Hmmmm.

Happy family tree climbing!

Hangouts: Pay what you want. So it’s simple. If you value the work Ol’ Myrt, +Cousin Russ and our beloved panelists do week in and week out on your behalf, please:

Check the DearMYRTLE Hangouts Calendar for upcoming study groups and hangouts. There you’ll find links to the GeneaConference (in-person) and the GeneaWebinars Calendar with over over 200 hours of online genealogy classes, webinars, live streams and
tweetchats from other hosts and presenters over the next 12 months.
