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…..
