You are Invited to Tie One On—An Apron, Of Course!
On Sunday, June 13
You are invited to a Manitou Springs-based multi-venue event features a book signing, apron-inspired vintage memories and Sunday brunch.
Tickets are $30
On Sunday, June 13, EllynAnne Geisel will be in Manitou Springs for the Tie One On event—an afternoon of aprons—at safron of manitou springs, Black Cat Books and The Avenue Hotel B and B.
It’s a seemingly mundane object, but one that can trigger recollections of family gatherings, motherly comfort and an era of domesticity long gone by. Vintage and vintage-style aprons, long associated with hearth and home, have once again become popular, both with collectors and as a must-have kitchen accessory. While writing an article on them, essayist and apron archeologist EllynAnne Geisel realized the connection these and other vintage linens have for us, woven, as they are, in the very fabrics of our lives and memories.
The event will begin with a meet-and-greet for Geisel at safron of manitou springs, where vintage and vintage-inspired aprons will be on display and on sale. Geisel will discuss her forays into apron archeology. The group will then move to Black Cat Books for a book signing with the author and then to The Avenue Hotel B&B for brunch on the lawn.
A limited number of tickets are available for the event, and reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis. Tickets are $30 per person and may be purchased at safron, Black Cat Books and The Avenue Hotel.
