. I also came across the Music, Material Culture, and Interpretation Resource Group sheet while trying to organize some things. So, I apologize for the now very late report.
We had 11 people that attended the resource group.
Topics discussed: Masquerades; Music - specifically temperance and where to look for music; Children's peep shows - discussing that they tended to be more of an "in the home" family entertainment; the fact that garter's should be promoted for women to use as well as men; Temperance - what led to it (PTSD of Civil War)
Conference sessions and/or presenters: Masquerade mask making workshop; hair jewelry/wreaths workshop; Penmanship workshop; How to entertain family (non-modern tech) session; Parlor games and entertainment for Friday night part of Conference (have them at tables and you travel to different tables)
Resources or other information shared: Ann Barnett in Indiana for Temperance music performing; Carpet bag frame- Look for 12 or 16" internal tubular frame with 3.5" leg on Amazon; Kannik's Korner - Theater materials; Hat Pins - antique stores are best as modern made ones tend to be either too thick or too thin; "Waistcoats", covers 18th-19th century, book is back in print; "Women's Shoes in America" by Nancy Rexford is good reference;
