You’ll also be shown several ways to personalize your capote. The workshop includes a visit behind-the-scenes look into the Museum vaults with Dr. Amelia Fay, curator of the HBC Collection.

 

Sewing materials are provided. You can either provide your own wool blanket (contact for size guide) or purchase a gently used blanket from Nancy for $80-$180 (cash only).

 

Sundays, March 8 & 15 • 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

 

Lunch will be provided for both sessions.
