Costumed needlework demonstrations are a favorite and include a 1890's attired Victorian lady to demonstrate various needlework techniques and Crazy Quilting, a Colonial lady dressed in "undress" (working or everyday clothes of the 18th century) or, a Civil War attired lady (complete with hoop skirts) who demonstrates fine needlework. Susie has had the pleasure of demonstrating her craft at the Smithfield Patriot Day history celebrations and Smithfield Olden Days. If you or your organization wish to schedule a demonstration or workshop please contact Berryhill Heirlooms through our website email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
