Appalachian Heritage Apron’s For Sale
The Appalachian Women’s Museum is proud to make available a true historic treasure of Appalachian “women-at-work” —- the Appalachian Heritage Apron.
The Monteith Farmstead site in Dillsboro, NC was the lifetime home to two Monteith sisters raised there. One of many household items discovered after their passing was an apron pattern, probably from the early 1900’s. Using this pattern, our Appalachian Heritage Aprons are now lovingly made by members of the NC Extension Service of Jackson County. They attach to each finished apron a copy of a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, also from the Farmstead’s kitchen.
Some of the cotton and cotton blend fabrics used for the aprons are prints that are reminiscent of the early 1900’s. Available in small, medium and large sizes, the aprons can currently be purchased at OAKS GALLERY in Dillsboro, NC for a $20.00 donation that will help fund the educational activities of the Appalachian Women’s Museum.
