Ingeborg Katarina Norell, born Stenborg, 1727, apparently in Borgå, was a Finnish craftsman's wife. She was the first woman in Finland to be awarded a medal for saving a life.

Norelli's father is said to have been Hans Stenborg, a saddle maker from Borgå. She married in 1764 the goldsmith Carl Gustaf Norell, formerly Norelius (1738-1782), with whom she had three children. The Norell couple lived first in Borgå and then in Fredrikshamn until 1768. After her husband's death in 1782, Norell travelled to Pojo, but her further life is unknown.

On April 8, 1780, an accident occurred in the village of Tenhola in Germundi, when a two-year-old girl fell into a well and was thought to have drowned. 53-year-old Norell happened to be there. She had read an almanac published by the predecessor of the Collegium medicum, that is, the medical board, which contained life-saving instructions. Norell began blowing and massaging the child, which continued for more than an hour with others present, until the girl finally regained consciousness, and fully recovered from the accident. Two years later, in 1782, Anders de Bruce Norell proposed the Royal Patriotic Society's prize for saving a human life. The following year she was awarded a cash prize.

Grandma's Laundry Tricks:
  • Do not Brush, Rub or Scrub the printed fabrics too hard to avoid damage to print quality.
  • Wash with similar colours to avoid staining or tint.
  • Please do not overuse the centrifuge, it only wrinkles the fabric.
  • Please do not overuse the dryer or use extrem heat, this only tears the fibres apart.
  • A dehumidifier is a great invention to dry the fabrics and clothes.
  • Dry the fabrics outdoors, if possible, but not under direct sunlight.
  • Environmentally awareness and the durability of clothing go hand in hand.
  • Do You really need to use the fabric softener or is white vinegar good enough?
