Update & Museum Website

Hi all!

I'm busy, busy with Costume College next week. Stay tuned for reports and lots of great sewing information!

And next Thursday, July 31st the eBook, Modern Sewing Techniques for Historical Clothing Construction, will be released.

Cloak & Corset members watch your email box for your special discount on this full-packed product that will save you time and money by learning the BEST ways to make historical clothing - by using modern methods.

Now for a great website: The Kent State University Museum! This site has awesome photos of some of the pieces in their collection as well as a great museum store packed with good resource books.

Look at the Collection link and search in the Dictionary of Costume for beautiful photos of extant (existing) garments.

I especially enjoyed reading about 18th Century silk textiles and the museum's Paisley Shawl exhibit.

Enjoy visiting this fabulous museum site! Someday I will actually visit the museum in person.
