Hello Everyone!
Hope you had a wonderful holiday. Get your sewing machines primed and your sewing needles sharpened because 2011 is already here!


There is much going on this year in the costume world. The Costume Society of America in conjunction with Colonial Williamsburg is holding a Pre 1840s costume symposium March 13-16th on site. It will focus on costume accessories and “scholars from the United States, Canada, and England will present 10 lectures over two and one-half days; a day of hands-on workshops and related behind-the-scenes tours will follow.”


Directly after this conference, Colonial Williamsburg will also be hosting A Reconstructed Visitable Past: Recreated Period Attire at Heritage Sites which is drawing in those associated with living history museums as well.


Pretty exciting! From all the blogger buzz, seems like several professional costumers and historic clothing enthusiasts have already booked their tickets! Be sure to check out the links for more information about this great opportunity!

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
