sewing and writing (or reading)

The author Mary Robinette Kowal writes about designing and making the dress for the cover of her latest book. She describes the research, the methods of sewing, and helpfully provides photographs.  This is a very good tie in for libraries and makers.  Can your library connect to people who want to make heritage costumes, or create works which are inspired by fiction (such as fantasy and science fiction).  Think about how you can help this part of your community.  The skilled information seeking of staff will help, and tools for the community could be useful.  There may be programming potential or display potential.
