Aprons for Haney Heritage Village and Museum

Some of us are making aprons to wear at Haney Heritage Museum on the days that we go spinning.  So..... on Thursday, June 7th we met at the Shuswap Middle School in the sewing/craft room to cut out our aprons.  This was for those who wanted to work on this project together.  

Lis had already made her apron.

Measure twice, cut once!

They cut their patterns out at the school, then
took them home to sew.

Come and see the aprons they sewed
on Father's Day at Haney Heritage Museum.
