Amelia Earhart’s Sewing Box!

Did you know Amelia Earhart always took her sewing box with her on long flights?

I didn’t either until I read this the article, What Women Can Do for Aviation in the May 1930 issue of NEEDLECRAFT, the Magazine of Home Arts.

Upon further research, I recently learned she designed sewing patterns as well as a clothing line AND authored several books about her journey.

Dr. Ballard speaking

Today I was fortunate to hear Dr. Robert Ballard speak about his search for Amelia in Atchison, Kansas at the high school and airfield. Atchison is home to Amelia’s birthplace and museum.
