I’m always in for a roadtrip to see dreamy costumes like those from Jane Austen films or Downton Abbey, or Jacqueline Kennedy’s or Princess Diana’s wedding gowns!
Needlework & Textiles
May 2-June 30, enjoy Jefferson County Historical Society’s lovely textiles exhibit of ladies’ fashions, “The Art of the Dress.”
“Sanford Biggers: Codeswitch” took all my preconceptions of upcycled vintage quilts and quite frankly blew them up.
If there’s one thing I learned at the retreat, it’s that you can’t pigeonhole a needlepointer!
If you hang stockings as a Christmas tradition, what’s the story behind your family’s treasures? Are they a mix of old and new? Are they handmade? Did you find them in a catalog or fall in love with them at a favorite shop?
Best weaving class I’ve ever taken! OK, the first… but it was terrific!
We’re meeting at the Fairfield Inn again on Thursday, November 11th, 2-4pm. BYO stitching project and join us!
Beautiful quilts from the Ohio County Historical Society’s collection are on display in Rising Sun, Indiana through April 10, 2021. The setting is wonderful, and so are the quilts.
Perhaps you have pieces of vintage handwork tucked away that could come to life with some TLC?
My grandmother, Isabelle, learned necessary hand sewing skills to make and repair her limited wardrobe of the times. Her journal is filled samples of her school sewing projects and is such a treasure!
