Greentree Festival, Kirkwood, Missouri
I'm so very honored. I've been invited to be a professional demonstrator at this year's Greentree Festival in Kirkwood, Missouri!
They have invited me a couple times but Silver Dollar City Fall Festival had my attention the past four seasons. This type of opportunity is why I've chosen not to demo at SDC for awhile.
Check out the sweet outfit I use when I do historic demonstrating!
I had an opportunity to create this ensemble in a historic clothing class a few years back offered by a staff member of the Felix Valle House State Historic Site. Yep! I made it - all of it...right down to the knife pleated petty coat (not showing for decency reasons, of course! Hehe!)
The era is approximately 1815. I've chosen that era for two reasons: First, it is the heyday of Ste Genevieve. So I wear it to demo events in town. Second, the LAST thing I want to deal with is corsets and hoop skirts!
Well, that's what's up here at Never Bored Creations. Should you live in the area, come see me at the Greentree Festival September 14 - 15, 2019!. You'll find me in the Folklife Artist demonstration area.
Here's to no time for boredom!!
Your ever lovin', paper twirlin' enthusiast!
