The FIRST in this series of historical lectures and sewing workshops will detail foundations and underclothing during Marquis de la Fayette's return visit to NC during the 1820s. The workshop will cover women's and men's underclothes so gentleman don't be afraid to attend!

Participants will bring their own patterns, fabric, machines and notions. (I am happy to help with picking out supplies, patterns, fabric, etc.)

I will provide a cutting and sewing work space, lots of electricity, irons and my expertise!

Everyone will enjoy a catered lunch and work on their foundation garments along with fellow enthusiasts. I will be available throughout the sewing time to provide one-on-one help and support.
