Seamstress, Wardrobe Manager                                       1995- 2001

My experiences at San Luis were the building blocks for my interest in textiles and costumes. I learned 

felting, dying, hand sewing techniques, pattern drafting from images, pattern construction, and researched 

costumes based on first sources in a historical context. After interning here for so long, I took over as the 

main costumer for 10 living history interpreters in 1999 and managed the wardrobe until 2001.
