Pins & Needles; Sewing Basics Demonstration at Barrington Plantation

The Girl’s Own Book (published in 1834) says, “There is no accomplishment of any kind more desirable…than neatness and skill in the use of a needle.” It also claimed that children should learn to sew a shirt before the age of twelve!
We invite you to learn the basic stitches and start sewing your own pincushion to take home and finish. All supplies will be provided.
