What would Mary do?

Mary Pickersgill had red, white, and blue wool bunting to make the Star Spangled Banner. She had white cotton for the stars. She had linen thread and needles. She had a few people to help her.

But what would Mary do if she had a huge air conditioned room to work in? And over 200 volunteers to help her?

What would she do if she had rotary cutters to quickly cut those long stripes?


What would she do if she had an Ott light to plug in and create instant daylight?


And what would she say about using fusible strips to control the fraying of the bunting…..and using hundreds of little Wonder Clips to hold the edges together for basting and sewing?


Wouldn’t it be great fun to talk to Mary Pickersgill? What would you ask her?
