I'll be giving a presentation at the library soon!
Overstuffed Closet and Nothing To Wear:
A New Spring Dress Costs Less Than A Sandwich.....But Who Pays?
Gathering up examples of upcycles, over dying and garments with unique quality features in construction and fabrics. Pulling together interesting facts about the change in the past couple of decades that is leading us to smother our planet in nearly new clothing. Tips for making small changes and links to others who are making similar changes in their relationship to clothing.
Why not create a wardrobe that you value?
Bring your latest challenge of upcycle project to share! The event is sponsored by the Emporia Public Library and is free to the public.

I've got two characters I now perform for audiences - telling first person narratives for Kittie Hays Houghton (daughter of famous Santa Fe Trail trader, Seth Hays) and Nell Donnelly-Reed (famous for Nelly Don dresses; an anchor company of the Kansas City Garment District).
See my new website here which includes news from other more experienced members of the Kansas Alliance of Professional Historical Performers.
