Hand Embroidery of the 18th Century Workshop and Lecture at the Bevier House Museum


Beveir House Museum Hand Embroidery Workshop set for Sunday, September 18th

Fall classes are underway and Thursday Classes are almost full!  I will be taking my boys over to the Van Wyck Homestead tomorrow for the Fishkill Historical Societies big Revolutionary War weekend.  It should be fun and I will be a greeter at the door – in full 18th Century attire!! Finally found my mob cap!

Sunday I will be giving a hand embroidery workshop at the Bevier House Museum – Ulster County Historical Societies lovely Civil War era home.  It is packed with lots of interesting artifacts and memorabilia from the Civil War, I am hoping to step them back further into time by introducing some Revolutionary War era into their setting.  I bet the 1860s would have seemed incredibly modern to Betsy Ross – it is amazing what 100 years and a Civil War can do!  The Industrial Revolution was a fascinating period in our collective history.

Sew on and Sew on…..
