Unfortunately, the Yesteryear's Essentials conference has been cancelled. We may try to present this conference again in the future.

New, in conjunction with Yesteryear's Essentials:

A Properly Fitted Tailcoat Workshop
presented by Saundra Ros Altman's Past Patterns and Ericka Mason-Osen.

Altman and Mason-Osen help workshop attendees build a template for a man's tailcoat. Don't miss this opportunity to attend this two-day workshop to learn the basics behind crafting a men's early 19th century garment! This workshop takes place side-by-side with Yesteryear's Essentials at Fort Meigs.
