Word Art & Wine: Bauble Bookmarks
Thursday, May 5
This program will feature creative crafts reusing jewelry pieces.  Participants will make a bauble bookmark. Workshop leader Beth Ryan said, “This is a great way to recycle that old earring that has lost its match, the drop on a necklace you no longer wear, or the old charm you've been holding onto ‘just because’.” Attendees who don’t bring their own bauble can choose one provided by the instructor. Ribbon, beads, embellishments and other materials will be provided.

Fashion & Flowers
Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7
You are invited to afternoon tea at the Noah Webster House. Six rarely seen dresses from the 1840s to the 1920s from the museum's collection will be on display. Each will inspire a floral arrangement that complements the elegant table settings. Refreshments will include savory and sweet morsels and tea both hot and cold. After tea, Tracy Weed will give a brief presentation on Fashion from Victorians to Flappers.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available here.
