CRAFT-FEATHERING

IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA, THE SOCIAL EVENINGS IN THE WINTER
CONSIST OF FEATHERING PARTIES. FEATHERS ARE SAVED
DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS AND THEN ON WINTER EVENINGS
LADIES SIT AROUND A LARGE TABLE AND TEAR OFF THE
FEATHERS FROM THE STEM TO BE MADE INTO PILLOWS.
AS FAST AS THE FINGERS WORK, THAT IS AS FAST AS THE
TONGUES GOSSIP.
