Civil War Sewing Circle
We just received a new book from Martingale that you quilting history buffs will love. The Civil War Sewing Circle by Kathleen Tracy is a fun book. It is sub-titled Quilts and Sewing Accessories Inspired by the Era. It has 16 easy projects including small and large quilts reminiscent of those made during the Civil War and patterns for a pincushion, sewing box and needle case. Along with the projects, learn a little history about women's efforts during that time. There are also photos and excerpts from letters written to and from soldiers during the Civil War and some interesting historical tidbits. Come in and check it out.
