CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

a bunch of milled soaps.
Well, I have a puck of Truefitt & Hill, just because I was in London and HAD to have it. It's good but not really TDF. The general soap stockpile consists of Provence Sante (awesome), Pre de Provence (great), and L'Occitane Cade (spotty but I <3 the smell) - for the triple-milled, and then Proraso and Prep soft Italian soaps - which are just a bit harder than creams.
Where do you buy the provence sante and pre de provence Thomas? I've been wanting to try those for a while now. Even though I'm not shaving any longer.
Years back there was a group-buy deal at a Touch of Europe (I think it's atouchofeurope.com), that had tins of PdP and refills of Provence Sante for $10 or less. I think they still run deals at times. Frankly, $10 for a refill of Provence Sante is pretty good since the milled soaps hardly wear down. I used up one puck of PS and had a few still in reserve. BTW: I think PS has a couple of soaps now, the one I use is Verlaine. Actually, if you ever come across a puck of eShave avocado/linden soap (now discontinued), at a decent price, I'd snag it: as far as I can tell, it's identical to PS. ... I also forgot to mention: I also use Tabac Original - the one in the white ceramic bowl. It's fantastic as well, and generally available on Amazon for reasonable lucre.
I tried the eShave and didn't really care for it, although I can't really remember if it was that flavor or not.
Thom-Thom - thanks for including a puck in the first frag swap box if that was you. I took one of those slices and am still using it here and there. Fantastic stuff.
Never heard of them. Is this another one of the shaving fora favorites?
Its a new line out of NC. I use mainly DR Harris and Taylors but am curious about these guys. Ordered some today - will let you guys know.
Cool. Keep us updated. Did you get a bar soap to try as well?
