This past weekend we popped over The Hill down to Berkeley to visit on of our favorite shops *ever* – Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles. We were honored to be invited to do a Q&A and book signing, and had a great time gabbing about historic dress, hair, shoes, and meeting so many wonderful historic costumers.

Lacis is an interesting place. It is both a museum with changing exhibits and a store where you can buy the most drool-worthy ribbons, laces, vintage and antique garments, millinery supplies, sewing notions, and books.

It was so wonderful to meet so many historic costumers at Lacis – there were many names I recognized from over the years and was so happy to meet in person. I hope those of you who were able to attend enjoyed our talk and the museum.
