    Seamstress Cindy Hopper of Sewcology will teach basic hand sewing stitches for clothing construction and repair (not embroidery), and help you work on the project of your choice.  Historical materials such as linen thread, linen, cotton and wool will also be covered.  Participants will provide their own needles, thread, scissors, and pre-cut material (following your chosen pattern/project).  The first two sessions will be working up a "sampler piece" of basic stitches.  For this, you will need a solid color light weight material of your choice approx. 30" square.
     
    NOTE: Please check with us prior to the program for current COVID protocols. Masks strongly recommended, regardless of vaccination status.  If the library in consultation with health authorities requires, the program may shift to remote and be given on Zoom.

    A talk by Frank Salvati, who has spent decades researching the Native American involvement in the Revolutionary War.  He gives accurate details about Iroquois leader Joseph Brant of the British Army's Indian Department and his men.  These were the raiders that met local militia of Orange and other Counties in the Battle of Minisink on July 22, 1779--- resulting in a devastating amount of casulties on the American side.  Warwick's Col. John Hathorn was the American commander.   This Battle also  proved a tipping point for the British alllied Iroquois and the devastation of their homeland by the Sullivan Expedition.
