I too would remove the old covering crossing my fingers the foam underneath isn't crumbling.

@Renegade Sewist, apparently it is normal, something to do with genetics  :'(. My grandmother was still getting them right up to when she died in her late 80's and my mother who is 90 is still getting them, so it looks like I'm going to be stuck with them  :'( :'( :'( :'(.

I did when I started with the flushes, everything apart from my coats that wasn't cotton or linen including my bra's got disposed of to either the charity shop or the clothing bins at the recycling centre.
It nearly broke my heart to do it but I was getting the flushes so badly and frequently I had to do something. I'm still getting them now 20 years on from when they started but not as many or as badly.

@sewingj, I think you've got plenty of good advice there from the rest of the group but as far as thimbles go I use a rubber one these days (the kind they used to use for counting paper money) if my fingers are getting too punctured when I'm using fine needles if that's any help.

I might have done when I was much, much younger but definitely not these days. It was nice to see what I think was a plus size model in the pictures though

@Marniesews The last time I was in Waltons (2 years ish) they didn't do curtaining stuff, unless they've changed the range or been offered something at the right price. If you want to ring them before you go if you PM me and I'll send you the shop number, Jayne's probably the best one to speak to.
