An Antique & Vintage Sewing Program

It is always a privilege for me to present my antique traveling museum programs, especially for family events. I am often called to entertain at birthday parties for mothers & grandmothers. In this case it was for a sweet lady that turned 80 who lives in Gettysburg, PA. She and her daughters enjoyed sewing over the years. The daughter Nancy who booked the surprise for her mother asked if I had old sewing accoutrements. I did indeed! I told her that I would bring them and choose pieces of antique clothing my from collection that were lush with ornate lace and trims. Everyone in attendance loved being swept back in time. Here are the photos...
