Saturday, October 12, 2019

Make plans to get the inside story of Jane Austen’s Chawton home, now known as Jane Austen’s House Museum, from two eminent and entertaining visitors:
Sue Dell, Collections Volunteer at the museum and expert on the Austen coverlet, and Martyn Dell, JAHM Trustee. The program will include a daytime workshop on English Paper Piecing, the technique the Austen ladies used to make their coverlet, followed by an evening program in which Martyn and Sue will answer our questions about the house museum–past, present, and future.
