RML: in Waukon offers a variety of learning opportunities throughout the year with our Live & Learn series. All our programs are free (unless otherwise noted)—registration is encouraged.

RML will feature “Remembering the Apron” on Thursday, October 28 at 5:30pm.

Presenter, Sheila Craig is a grandmother with a collection of aprons!  Her program, “Remembering the Apron”, takes a nostalgic look at the apron in an interactive, hands-on program (if you want -- you can touch and feel the fabric)!  The program will look at the fabrics and trims, the styles and uses of aprons.  Don’t leave out the men – she has examples for them too. 

You will have the opportunity to see about 100 of her 400-collection of aprons.  What member of your family wore an apron?  Was it for a special job, or around kitchen?  Come and reminisce about your families’ connection to an apron!

Sheila is a retired University of Minnesota Extension Educator from Preston, Minnesota, originally from Decorah, Iowa.  She has been doing ‘apron programs’ for almost 15 years for libraries, church groups, and care facilities as well as the Iowa State ‘Women Around Ag Conference’ in Clear Lake, Iowa.   She is married; has two grown sons and their wives, and two grandsons.
