|The Tie on Pocket|
A Tie on Pocket: Women’s History in a Utilitarian Accessory
This workshop is in conjunction with the "Women of Resilience"
exhibit currently ongoing at the Museum.
Take the workshop and see the exhibit! A one trip outing!
Historically pockets were an accessory that women from 1600 through the early 1900s wore independent of their clothing. In these pockets they carried all kinds of things…pencils, thimbles, keys, pictures and more.
In this workshop participants will create a fabric pocket that can be tied around their waists to carry a variety of today’s useful objects such as money, a small notebook, even a cell phone! With a kit of fabrics, ribbon, threads and embellishments and using hand sewing and simple embroidery techniques they will individualize their pocket the way our female ancestors did. Each kit contains items that will make the pocket unique. Simple hand sewing will make it personal just as individual stitches personalize a quilt or a mended garment.
