Girl Scout Event: "First Lady Fashions with Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Keckley"

Cadette Girl Scouts are invited to an event inspired by the relationship between Mary Lincoln and dressmaker Elizabeth Keckley, both born in 1818 in very different circumstances. Scouts will stitch a needle case, examine period fashions from undergarments to accessories, explore connections between gender and fashion, and work with artist Sonja Brooks on a culminating art project. Reservations required by contacting at Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road.
