I will try to keep this short.
I have converted part of my garage into my sewing space. But in the dead of winter it gets really cold, so I then take over the kitchen table. Anywho, a cat got into the garage for awhile and decided the kinky I had on my cutting table would make a nice warm bed. Now it is covered in cat hair. Can/should I wash it before I use it as a quilt back or would that mess it up. I haven't worked think minky a lot before. Thank you for all your help and suggestions.
