Thank YOU !

Thank you to everyone who attended the Vikings in New York talk and the packed room for the Four Yellow Love Drawers. Who knew so many people were so curious to learn what Love Drawers were!

A number of people asked if a book was available... A guide to the often funny but also saucy history of 16th and 17th century drawers is on its way. Packed with primary sources, and I am working on getting the images in place for publication. Fingers crossed copy rights go well!

I am also sourcing a pattern maker. The goal would be to provide patterns based on the drawers that were available in 16th Century and the ones brought over and worn in New York during the 17th and 18th Century.

For those who have not heard, I am moving to Europe for a few years while I do some research and writing. The blog will continue. The original goal was to do roughly 12 post for one year to get primary sources out into the hands of the average reader...but it has been evolving and the requests for speaking engagements and a book has encouraged extending the blog further.

Thank you to Lee at Boston History Camp, YOU are AWSOME ! And to all my readers for checking in each month from around the world !
