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.

Be sure to watch the video in the National Geographic video for a preview of the two hour special. Mark your calendars for October 20th and follow along with me as I share the wonderful story of Amelia Earhart and her connection to sewing, dressmaking and design.
