Mishlei (Proverbs) 31:22,24

כב מַרְבַדִּים עָשְׂתָה-לָּהּ שֵׁשׁ וְאַרְגָּמָן לְבוּשָׁהּ
כד סָדִין עָשְׂתָה וַתִּמְכֹּר
She made for herself pleasant-looking bed covers; she also made herself white (linen) and purple garments to wear
She manufactured robes and sold them

Pesach (Passover) counter with Vinyl

Every year we line our kitchen counters for Passover -- some have specially-made counters just for Passover, others line them with vinyl or other waterproof material.   I wouldn't recommend contact paper as they are very hard to remove.

Walmart carries good quality shelf liner that can be used for counters and shelves.
Duck 20" by 22 feet counter liner 
Duck 12" by 20 feet shelf liner
The cheapest alternative is to get yards of vinyl at your hardware store or fabric store.  They come in so  many different styles and colors, and you can use them to line your cabinet shelves as well. You will need some kind of tape -- packing tape, duck tape, or paper tape -- to hold them in place.

My favorite place to shop for vinyl under $3/yard is at Hancock Fabrics. The vinyl is reusable as they can be cleaned by wiping them off with a damp cloth and air-dry.   Here are a few selections:

You can also get clear vinyl to line your dining tables by the yard. As we speak, the sale price is $1.07/yard!

Hope these solutions are useful and save you money. Have a kosher and joyous Passover from my family to yours!

Training Girls in Dressmaking

In our times, it is highly commendable to train girls in the art of dressmaking and general sewing. Lessons should be given on this subject in schools, and if necessary, also in seminaries.

If the girl becomes really expert, she will even be able to make garments for herself, and later on, when married also for her daughters. Also, she could take up dressmaking as a profession.
