The NWTA SewIn season started with an informative and well-attended workshop on hand-sewing techniques in January.  Up next is a presentation and practice session on 18th century comportment on February 14.  The discussion will center on how we should interact with each other and the public.  Join former Colonial Williamsburg instructor Rod Faulkner as he walks us through polite interactions of a bygone era.  After we get the basics down, there will be plenty of opportunities to practice our knowledge with each other.

If you have a particular scenario that you are curious about, please let us know so that we can try to include it in our practice period.

Snacks to share are certainly welcome, but a brown-bag lunch is essential. As always, modern or period clothing is welcome.  Come for as much of the day as you can!

We will meet at the Glen Ellyn Historical Society
800 North Main St.
Glen Ellyn, Illinois 60138
Begin at 10:30 am and continue through about 3:30 pm.Let us know if you will be joining us!  We look forward to sewing with you. Contact with any questions, or visit the Facebook page at
