The Frontier Women Living History Association March 2014 conference was a great success. This was the 10th annual conference that included learning about the women who were part of making Texas the state it is. The speakers, Ann Dixon, Donna Hector and Stella Gonzalez talked of women important in this area of Texas. Julia Putman gave a presentation on Camp Cooper while Margaret Hoogstra told about the Texas Forts Trail book. Larry Garrett taught and assisted the ladies in making market baskets. Arnie assisted ladies with crochet and knitting projects, while Sharon taught collar and cuff embroidery. Mitch Baird talked about the world events during the 1850-1870s that affected the US. As usual, it was a very fun event with time to visit with old friends and make new ones.
