The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife

Monday, December 11th   6-7pm   Auditorium.

It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels…

The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace – it also honors our foremothers. It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels – it’s an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women. Velya Jancz-Urban, the “Colonial Goodwife,” explains how they managed menstruation, sex and birth control, childbirth, sickness and medicine.
