Fashion Show & Book Signing: Fundraiser for the Katonah Museum

On Monday, December 6th, Amy Sedaris and I were the featured authors at the fundraiser for the Katonah Museum. The event was titled: Crafts a Couture, a Fun and Fancy Luncheon.



The luncheon was really fun. Amy gave a presentation about her book, Simple Times, and did a crafty demonstration. I made her a special 'President Dress' for the occasion. The fashion show of my dresses went off without a hitch. The Kittle House was a perfect location -- with the windows and the light, packed with Ladies chattering away.  Everyone had a great time!
