The revival of heirloom sewing started around 1970 and is even more popular today. Heirloom garments and home accessories are fashioned after the elegant Victorian clothing or accessories which defined fashionable style around 1900. Heirlooms at that time were handmade and meant to be treasured by families for generations to come. Often heirlooms are stitched knowing they will probably be around much longer than the person who created them. Handmade family pieces, such as the projects Earline is licensed to teach, not only carry warm memories of the person who stitched them, but are works of art sought by museums and private collectors. Earline has a passion for creating heirloom treasures for your family and teaching other passionate sewers how to create their own heirlooms.
