September tends to be a busy month for Laura Ingalls Wilder events and this year it’s no exception. I have two programs. My first program is A Day in a One-Room School. In this program I take you through a day in a turn of the 20th century school. My second is my annual program at Laura Days in Pepin. This year I’m doing Packing Up and we’ve shifted time to morning. See you then!

  • North Liberty Public Library – North Liberty, IA – A Day in a One-Room School – September 4, 2018 – 6:30pm
  • Laura Days – Pepin, WI – September 8-9, 2018

The mentions that Sarah Uthoff and Trundlebed Tales got during the month of July 2018. I was quoted in an article about the Wilder Medal. I wrote for an article for a living history journal.

T-Shirt of the Month June 2018

When I post my video diaries I always get comments about my Laura clothes. No, not my period dresses, but my Laura Ingalls Wilder t-shirts that I wear for travel and Laura trips. I thought everyone might enjoy a closer look at them. So enjoy our monthly series where we look at a Laura shirt.

Shirt of the Month

This is a one of a kind Laura shirt. A former job had everyone buy polo shirts with their logo. I loved it. It was the most comfortable polo shirt I’ve ever found, so I didn’t want to give it up and so I decided to turn it into a Laura shirt.

I had a DeSmet Memorial Society patch that I could use already, but it wasn’t quite big enough to cover up the embroidered logo. So I thought about it. I bought some gingham edging. I sewed the ending to the back of the patch and that made it cover it up. It really looks like it was meant to be there. I think it adds to the shirt. I was so pleased I could keep wearing it and it’s really unique.
