Hand sewing enthusiasts and fans of antique fashions are invited to “Tea and Stitchery” on Sunday, August 6 at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House. Between 1 and 4 pm, the Wentworth ladies will gather in the parlor to drink tea, sew, and discuss the latest fashions of the 1700s. Costumed in period attire, the ladies will demonstrate the tools and techniques involved in hand sewing 18th century clothing, and both completed garments and some in process will be on display. Additionally, visitors will be able to view “Fashionable Folks: What New Englanders Wore,” an exhibit of women’s fashions from the 1830s to the 1920s currently on display at the Wentworth House until mid-October.
Interested members of the reenacting community are particularly invited to bring along their hand sewing projects and join the ladies for this special afternoon. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603-742-4747. Admission is by donation.
