Antique Sewing Techniques I Preview


Episode Details

Martha Pullen loves antique white clothes from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. She and Joe have traveled, from flea markets all over the world to fancy antique stores, collecting “white clothes.” These clothes have allowed Martha and her students to connect with women from past generations.
