Makedo And Mend Workshop

Part of our Smith-Appleby workshop series. 

     Step back in time and make an 18th century sewing wallet of “hussif”, aptly known as a “housewife”.  An important item in any soldier’s kit, sailor’s duffle, or a woman’s basket, this rolled up cloth sewing kit had pockets for carrying needles and thread, scissors, buttons, and anything else needed for a sewing emergency. 

     The workshop will be held Wednesday, June 13, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. at the Smith-Appleby House Museum.

     Cost is $25 per person, and includes all materials needed to have your own well-made hussif, light refreshments, and a tour of the Smith-Appleby Museum. 

     The class will be limited to ten participants, and all participants must be sixteen or older. 

     To register, or more information, contact, or call 401-231-7363, and leave a message.
