February 18-20, I’ll be in Aberdeen, South Dakota, presenting several workshops at the Frontier Army of the Dakotas Mid-Winter Conference. I’ve never been to the Dakotas, and though I’m sure February is not the time to see them at their most scenic beauty, I’m going to enjoy the company!
Sunday, 20 February, we’ll have three Sewing Academy workshops that will stretch a bit earlier than the main Conference focus: the late 1830s, 1840s, and 1860s. Pre-registration is required, and you’ll find the South Dakota Registration Form here (phone or mail in your registration request).
As part of the FAD Conference on Saturday, 19 February, I’ll present an overview of women’s clothing and a handwork class in the morning, and a workshop on Sharing the Frontier World in the afternoon. I’m particularly excited to share my own enthusiasm for the American Frontier… and to do a bit of dancing at the party that evening!
