In this workshop, we will discuss patterns, stitches and appropriate materials for 18th Century clothing, while learning basic hand sewing by making yourself a “housewife” (sewing kit), then learn to use a drop-spindle to make your own yarn for knitting. At the end, take your housewife & spindle home so you can practice.
$25 fee includes Housewife & Drop Spindle kits. Contact dgray@1771.org for reservations.
