Martha Pullen Heirloom Sewing

What is Heirloom Sewing?

Heirlooms include both handmade and machine made garments and other items that are meant to be treasured by families for generations to come.

The techniques used are similar to those your grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother used. Heirlooms will most likely be around longer than the person who made them!
