We are sewing like mad!

Just a few samples of the work in progress. Elizabethan Costuming for 24 adult singers and 6 young people is a LOT of costuming. Thanks to the people who are standing long hours, adapting patterns, finding great bargains in fabric, and making gorgeous things. We are not done, so if you sew and want to help, we sure do want to hear from you!! A few samples here…
