‘Remembering the Apron’ to be presented at KYL

Program to offer nostalgic, interactive look at aprons

Kendall Young Library will host a presentation Monday night that will take a nostalgic look back at an iconic piece of Americana.

“Remembering the Apron” will be presented on Monday, July 1 at 6 p.m. in the lower level meeting room.

Presenter Sheila Craig is a grandmother with a collection of aprons. Her program, “Remembering the Apron,” takes a nostalgic look at the apron in an interactive, hands-on program. The program will look at the fabrics and trims, the styles and uses of aprons. The program is not just for women, Craig will have examples for men, too.

Those attending will have the opportunity to see about 100 of Craig’s 400-piece collection of aprons.

Craig is a retired University of Minnesota Extension educator from Preston, Minnesota, originally from Decorah. She has been doing apron programs for almost 15 years for libraries, church groups, and care facilities as well as the Iowa State ‘Women Around Ag Conference’ in Clear Lake. She is married; has two grown sons and daughters-in-law and two grandsons.
