March Hive -- Sunday, March 22, 2015
The Buzz at the Hive
10:30-12:00 -- Kit Tune Up -- Don't wait till the last minute to make sure your kit is in good shape for the season. Take this time to reattach those buttons, fix blown out seams, replace the collar on that shirt -- all those tasks that lots of us leave to the night before an event.
12:00 -- 1:00 Textile Tutorial -- Cloth in Pre-War New England
We'll be looking at common fabrics advertised for sale, mentioned in runaway ads, in probate inventories, and in period literature. What are they? What do they look like? What were they used for? And what we can still get today? We'll also look at some originals so you can see first hand what some of these fabrics look like. Join Hallie Larkin, Steph Smith and Henry Cooke for this textile-o-rama!
