On June 30th, Locust Lawn Historic House & Farm will offer repairs with a fascinating theme: The timeless art of repair....
Repairs have been essential to the economy of homes in every time and place in our past.
Dawn Elliott, this year's recipient of the Martha Washington Woman of History Award, is curating an exhibit of how items were repaired "back then." And you can also bring an item to be repaired "now.
Dawn is skilled in the "lost" textile arts of darning and felting, and has been a repair coach at our Repair Cafes in New Paltz from the beginning.
