Chilly nights have settled in for the winter. Please consider a handmade sleeping cap to help you sleep warmly and help CWPT continue their efforts. It can be a Christmas present for both you and for preservation. These are entirely hand sewn with tiny stitches and the kind of care a woman would take for her family. At events, a good sleeping cap will keep the dew off of you as you sit around a fire. Many are wearing them every night for the same historic reason as our ancestors. It helps hold in the warmth that helps you snuggle down and sleep well.

I have one of Kathy's caps, they are beautiful. The workmanship is superb, and they keep your tater warmer than any off sutler row.

Thanks Kathy,
