Thank you to Carla Avant and Dixie Miller for a wonderful presentation about 1850’s Fashion.  It was great fun and very informative.  We learned a lot of fun facts about caring for clothing and how to make period accurate dresses.  Photos:

DO YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS?  Make a guess!!

The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers McQuarrie Museum have some pretty unique objects that were used by our Pioneer ancestors in their daily lives and aren’t used today. It is always fun to look back and try to imagine how people went about their daily lives and the tools they used to help them.
