Settling in....

Fall is here, Thanksgiving around the corner with Christmas hard on its heels and the Midwest Civil War Civilian Conference right behind it. With the reenacting season ended you'd think things would slow down a little, but somehow it all seems to happen faster. We're all working hard renewing inventory, catching up on projects and preparing for the wonderful family time coming up.

This year, we of P. Palmer will get together at Marta's home for Thanksgiving. Kathy and family coming down from Madison & Kay and family driving in from Ft Wayne. We'll spend the weekend together. The guys get to watch football and install a new microwave in Marta's kitchen, and we ladies will tackle some fun handwork.

Kay and Kathy are already working on presentations for the Conference. Kathy will be teaching Tunisian Crochet at a workshop on Friday. She's discovered several period stitches which are no longer part of modern stitchery. But we are most excited by having Elizabeth Stewart Clark as our keynote speak at the conference.

So follow along as we work on new exciting things to share. And, please, keep in touch. We love questions and comments.
