THE APRON BOOK : Podcast #5 – Ray Moore

THE APRON BOOK Podcast

THE APRON BOOK : Podcast #5
Ray Moore has loving memories of his grandmother. Always wearing her gingham apron, she showed him how to safely gather eggs from pecking chickens, then set the eggs gently into the lap of her apron. Focusing on her kind demeanor, Ray recalls the difficulty of her life and his last visit with her.

About The Apron Book:

The Apron Book

Warm and inviting, but (like an apron) quite practical, The Apron Book is a celebration of a great American icon. Apron enthusiast Ellynanne Geisel, who curated the traveling exhibit, Apron Chronicles, returns us to hearth and home in this updated edition of the award-winning book. In this paperback edition, EllynAnne reflects on the grassroots movement of apron love in a new introduction, and a new foreword by the former editor of Apronology magazine expounds on EllynAnne’s mantra that aprons don’t hold us back; they take us back because the connection to the past is a strong one.

The Apron Book showcases full-color photos of new and vintage aprons from Geisel’s vast collection, patterns for four basic apron styles and myriad variations, recipes, tips on collecting and preserving vintage aprons, and heart-tugging stories from the traveling apron exhibit. The book also explores the history and heyday of aprons and looks at the various roles aprons still play when worn in the kitchen, around the house, by the backyard grill, on the job, or for a special occasion.

THE APRON BOOK : Podcast #3 – Leslie Dodge

THE APRON BOOK Podcast

THE APRON BOOK : Podcast #3
The summer when Leslie Dodge was ten years old, her dad lost his job. Moving to another town and into a relative’s garage, Leslie brought with her a 4-H apron sewing project that was due at summer’s end. Taught by her mother and aunt the skills of homemaking, Leslie sewed and baked her way to much more than a winning ribbon at the county fair.
