In July 2005
Kate spent two weeks researching interesting Wyoming women. She
visited numerous historical sites, ranches and towns, picking
up tons of inspiration and the incredible ambience of early western
life. Returning to Silver Spring with an extra suitcase of relevent
books, an antique kettle, four hats, and period western garb,
Kate is working hard on her new Women: Back to the Future show
featuring Western Women to debut in 2006!!

Hole, Wyoming. Mary is incredibly knowledgeable about early western
women apparel - her suggestions and expertise are extremely appreciated.
