Parasol Re-covery – How To

434

If you always wanted to know the technique for being able to recover a parasol, the historical costuming club, Somewhere in Time, Unlimited (SITU), has held classes over the years for the historical costumer.  

This year, SITU is “revisiting” the training of parasol recovery.  We noticed that several costumers who had taken the initial Workshop, had not completed their parasol.  So, a follow up Workshop was scheduled, the original participants invited to come back, and we are headed for a day-long session!

Stay tuned to view results from the Workshop.  If you’d like to learn more about Somewhere in Time, Unlimited, view images, see our upcoming gatherings, visit:

Victorian & Edwardian Hat Decorating

It’s that time of year when historical costumers are invited to participate in a number of centennial parades and festivities. 

Can’t much do it easily at other times of year because weather in Seattle is unpredictable, even if we DO settle for “mostly cloudy and partly sunny” forecasts or wind up with showers.  We are after all, talking about The Evergreen State!
Back to hats.  If you are within driving range of Seattle, Washington and have interst in decorating a Victorian or Edwardian or other hat of your choice that you already own, we (of Somewhere in Time, Unlimited) would LOVE to invite you to come participate in a creative afternoon of hat decorating, entirely FREE!
Here is a link to the details: http://www.costuminginseattle.com/Hat%20DECORATING%20Workshop.htm
Would you be brave enough to participate in a parade with us?  I can assure you, it is a wonderful feeling.  The audiences are generally VERY thrilled to see people portraying a different era.  Even my husband Sir Harry and his gentlemen stride happily along side, tipping their hats to the ladies and waving as we go along.
If you like hat decorating, you might also be interested in hat PIN making, also one of our upcoming Workshops.
Stay in touch.  Happy to add you to an email list if you’d like to receive info on the Design Studios or Workshops in 2010.
All the best for lovely hat results!
