    This handmade felt hat was made by Rita Newberry, who will display her creations, including ones you can wear, at the Second Annual Stanwood Area Historical Society Afternoon Spring Tea on April 20 in Stanwood.

Hats are encouraged.
If you don't have a hat, hatmaker Rita Newberry will sell her millinery creation.*
And a hat is most fitting for this event, "The Second Annual Stanwood Area Historical Society Afternoon Spring Tea."
During this tea, guests will get a chance to tour the exhibit "Waistlines and Hemlines," the story of the women of Stanwood who lived here during the first 70 years of the 20th century as seen through their clothing.
There will be two seatings for the tea: one at 1 p.m. and a second at 3:30 p.m. April 20 at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center, 27130 102 Ave. NW, Stanwood.
The tea menu will include a variety of fancy tea sandwiches, fresh fruit and sweets. Music will be played by the Walt and Kenny Duo.
Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation of $10. Drawings for gift baskets will take place at each tea. Make reservations before April 16 by calling Rose King at 360-387-1278.
Hatmaker Rita Newberry, who will be on site displaying her millinery creations, will provide a hat for you to wear at the tea if you don't have one. Her hats will also be for sale.
The "Waistlines and Hemlines" exhibit is a display of vintage fashions that tells the story of women of each decade from 1900 through 1970. Outfits range from wool swimsuits to satin and lace wedding dresses.
The clothing exhibit has been enhanced by historical society volunteers who have provided photos of the day, newspaper stories, period objects and other artifacts.
