Guess what I’m doing on March 23?
Wednesday, March 23, 7 p.m.
Lecture: Hand-Sewing in the 1850s — 60 Years before the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire
In participation with Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition’s 100th anniversary memorial
Before sewing machines and factories revolutionized clothing production in the second half of the 19th century, most garments were made entirely by hand. Learn about forgotten hand-sewing methods used at home and in dressmaker’s workshops during the mid-19th century in this “hands-on” presentation. $15, $10 Students & Seniors, Free for MHM Members.
