Sweet and Sassy Exhibit Video Available

Dear Roots with Wings Friend,

I hope you will have a chance to take a look at this video.

The video profiles the The Old Church Gallery’s 2019 exhibit, “Sweet and Sassy,” featuring the innovative uses of feed sacks printed with colorful patterns by enterprising feed manufacturers from the 1920s into the 1950s. Sales took off as thrifty farm women turned feed sacks into shirts, dresses, aprons, curtains, quilts, and stuffed animals.

The video stars Old Church Gallery volunteers, Catherine Pauley, Clara Martin, Janet Slusher Keith, and Alice Slusher.

We’re offering the video with the permission of Floyd’s Citizens Telephone Cooperative; it was created for their Community Show on cable television; Hari Berzins is the producer of these terrific shows. The video is 40 minutes long.
