The Western Sonoma County Historical Society presents an Old-Fashioned Sewing Bee at the Luther Burbank Cottage where we will be reproducing the flag sewn by suffrage women. As the years progressed from 1848 to the passage and ratification of the amendment granting women the right to vote in 1920, Alice Paul kept tract of each State’s ratification of the 19th Amendment by placing stars on a hand-sewn banner. This reproduction of the flag will be used in the 2020 Apple Blossom Parade and hung in the West County Museum during the Suffrage Exhibit in 2020. Fabric is provided but do bring your thimble, needles and scissors. Drop in between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to sew or observe and learn a bit more about this piece of our history.

Parking is free but very limited.
Take the Sebastopol Shuttle. It’s free!
