Well, A Summary View is away for Christmas, but in our absence, we invite you to have a gander (ha ha!) at our Christmas article in the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia. We wish everyone a lovely and peaceful "season of mince pies!"
Wreath Workshops will start earlier than ever in 2013. An updated schedule will be available at monticello.org. These ever-popular workshops, in their 27th year, produce a gratifying and tangible end product: a beautiful holiday wreath. Janet Miller, Lou Hatch, and Maggie Stemann Thompson will lead participants through the process in these three-hour workshops. All materials (straw wreath forms, pins, wire, etc.) will be provided, including a cornucopia of natural materials. Bring hand pruners. Jordan Classroom, Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center.
