Default I May Have Helped Prevent a Fire

I was in Joanns today and I overheard 2 women talking about the potato bagshat go in the microwave. One lady was going to make some and the other one was telling her about someone she knew that used one and started a fire in the mw oven. My friend was talking to me at the time so I couldn't say anything right then. A few minutes later when i was free, I went to the cutting table where the one lady was trying to figure out how much fabric to buy. She had the prequilted stuff with the polyester batting init. I apologized for butting in and asked if that was what she was using for the bags. When she said yes, I told her the proper materials to use to avoid a hazardous gift! She kept thanking me. I told her that my conscience wouldn't let her buy that quilted stuff!

Every one appreciates a tip to prevent a hazard. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

She was going ahead with her plans even AFTER her friend told her about the fire??? That's kind of weird....

there was a reason that you were there ,God places us in situations to do the right thing so that we can be his little angels and that was what you were then, and as for butting I would be grateful if someone assisted me and gave me the information to prevent a possible fire. May God bless and keep you in the palm of his hand.

You can't use insulbrite in the Microwave, can you?

Um, that would be a big fat NO. It contains metal and could be what started the friend's fire. The manufacturer's website says in bold red lettering that it is NOT FOR USE IN THE MICROWAVE.

Isn't great to have 'friends' in our world who would willlingly help us, just like you did. It surely makes quilting more enjoyable and fun. You not quilting police but a quilting angel.
