In my program In Pursuit of Hankies, learn the art of distinguishing valuable collectibles from imposters, as we sort through stacks of vintage hankies together. You and your guests will learn to identify the era and embellishments of cherished hankies inherited from our grandmothers and mothers. Enjoy learning about antique laces and discover wedding traditions treasured by modern brides. This program delights those who relish the art and beauty of textiles, helps antique collectors hone their hunting skills, and demonstrates ways to incorporate vintage hankies into the art of home and clothing design. Audience members are invited to bead the corners of a pretty vintage hanky to create a keepsake of their own.
