Have you ever wondered why women's clothing has such tiny pockets—or no pockets at all? Are you tired of having a pocket deficiency? Do you want pockets now? 

Join THS for a workshop on the history of women's pockets, learn why they became so rare, and make your very own 19th century detachable pocket that can be worn with any outfit! Presented & taught by THS curator Elizabeth Korsmo & THS director Jessica Smith. 

Workshop tickets cost $10 and will include the historic talk and project instruction. A list of required supplies will be provided at registration. Basic hand-sewing skills are recommended. Suggested for teens & adults.

Refreshments will be provided. Workshop begins at 6:00 and ends at 8:30pm 

This event is generously sponsored by Tacoma Creates.
