The study of fashion in its cultural and historical context has always fascinated me .
Here are two articles I found truly interesting this week - timely and personal to the choices we make to represent our identities.

My family and I are moving back to NYC.
After living here for almost three years, I have sewn with more people than I would have ever imagined.
Some of you were looking forward to getting old enough to take my sewing machine class or spend a week of summer camp with me. I am sorry we can't keep creating together but I hope you keep pursuing your interest in sewing and crafts. It is something you will use throughout your life for necessity - and joy.
To celebrate Sewing is Social and all of you who have supported my venture, I am hosting one last Backyard Craft Party!
Thursday June 11
31 Fernbank Ave
Delmar, NY 12054
There will be a variety of crafts to make and a sample sale. Come with cash to purchase craft supplies, fabric and more.
This is a family friendly, all ages event. (This is not a drop-off class). Snacks and beverages will be served and any picnic potluck items will be appreciated.
$5 per family suggested contribution.
Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing you at this annual event for one last time.
