    I use Satin Hands from MaryKay before I do anything with fabric and it seems to really help. I am a HUGE fan of MK but this keeps my fingers from cracking in the deep winter when everything is so dry. PS yes I sell MK

    Thanks. My DH has some in his bathroom. I would probably forget to use it too. I may swipe it and put it in my quilting room, maybe I would remember to use it then.

    I complained about the same thing to my doctor and she told me to eat a hand full of nuts a day. When I asked about my cholesterol and eating nuts she said they have the good kind of fat in them and a handful a day is good. She suggested walnuts, pistachios and almonds. I have been doing this and have seen an improvement.

    I hear you, between being a secretary for years, and all the fabric. I use and have used everything out there. So my remedy, just sit on your hands. When I'm all dressed up, makeup is perfect the correct jewelry...everything, then there are my hands....I just hide them. Udder cream works about as good as anything.

    I get my Udder Balm at Tractor Supply if that helps. It's found with the vet supply things.

    Maybe that is why years ago, white gloves were so popular. They hid you hands. Maybe we could bring back that fashion statement and hide our "quilter's hands"

    I have used Corn Huskers lotiong and it helps. I still have dried out hands, but, IF I remember to lotion, it isn't too bad.
