Thursdays at the Museum: Lunch and Program
November 9 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join the Phelps Mansion Museum on Thursday November 9th from 12pm-2pm for our second Thursdays at the Museum Lunch and Program:
The home efforts by American women at home was very significant. Victory gardens, knitting for the troops, meatless meals, and baking bread without wheat.
My character of Mrs. Emma Mitzel, a middle-class farm widow faced anti-German prejudice, and she could have been sent to a TT internment camp. Her salvation came because she had the freedom to be a travelling speaker for the Red Cross. She speaks about pattern sources for knitting for the troops and refugees. Plus, new ways of preserving food, the way to get items to the Red Cross, etc.
As an avid historian and needle worker, Tamara has taught classes on historic sewing, embroidery, tatting, food ways, and Native American bead work. She’s the lead character researcher for Time Travelers, a company she co-owns. Our latest project is the 1893 Columbian Expo, (the first with electric lights), and my role is Graceanna Lewis, a Quaker and naturalist who taught in a girl’s school in Clifton Springs, NY.
