JoLynn has attended workshops at Past Patterns (a very popular “historical clothing pattern company dedicated to accuracy”); clothing construction workshops in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Maine, and Ohio; and attended research workshops at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg, VA. JoLynne founded a small Civil War women’s historical accessories pattern company.
