Thanks Aylwen,

I do remember reading that but what I seem to do best is forget.

I am so excited for you and look forward to following your journey.

Hello Aylwen,

This sounds great.

 Took a look at the page yesterday and found it somewhat confusing.

Tried to sign up for the $65 but it seemed it was at capacity so had 
to go

for the 65+ shipping to Canada.  Hopefully I did it right.

The page also mentioned supporting your next book on men's costume 
but

could not seem to find any option for doing that.

I hate to wish a year away,BUT can't wait until December '17.

It will be so exciting for you to travel to England to research what 
you

will eventually share with us through your book.

I went on the Sense and Sensibility England costume tour this past
September.  Sadly we really did not get to have any indepth time to 
study

costume.  Regardless it was a great adventure.

Looking forward to my new book.

Dear Friends

I am writing to seek your help financing my Kickstarter book 
project by
pre-purchasing my costume-in-detail book about 18th and early 19th 
century

trims, frills and furbelows - the finishing touches.

This is the first time you'll see such a focus on the 18th and 
early 19th
century trims from the inside out - and the book will also have 
how-to
photographic explanations with each garment showing you how to 
reproduce
the trim by hand yourself! Its been exciting to have museums in the 
UK

coming on board and allowing me full access to their collections in
mid-2017 and the rights to publish photos of their costumes.

I'd love your support - please read more at 
https://www.kickstarter.
com/projects/1245085016/trims-frills-and-furbelows and please also 
share

this information with your historical costume appreciating friends.

Warmest Regards,
and many thanks, again, for your support,

Subject: [h-cost] early 20th Century Franco-American weddings

Sorry, this is a bit off-topic, but I'm hoping someone who studies 
the time

period can help me.

While working on my genealogy, I noticed that many of my 
Grandmother's
generation married on a Monday (1930s; Biddeford, Maine). I asked one 
of her

Penny,

It must have been another Charlene as this thread is not one I 
responded to.


Charlene Roberts


still-living sisters why that was and she didn't know; that's just 
the way

it was done.

I later found this is a book about the Franco-Americans in Biddeford, 
Maine:
Weddings too retained much of their ethno-religious significance for 
the

Franco. The wedding was usually held on Monday morning.

Of course, the author didn't provide any additional information or 
cite this

in the footnotes. (One of the faults of the book is the amount of
information he presents without explanation.)

Does anyone know why French Catholics in the early 20th century 
married on

Mondays?
