Sarah's Story is a fabric collection designed by Betsy Chutchian inspired by Sarah Hale. 1830-1850

Sarah was a poet, an author and an editor of Godey's Lady's Book for 40 years.  It was in Godey's that the hexagon design frist appeared in an American periodical in 1835.  It her day, Sarah was the leading influencer in fashion and all matters concerning the keeping of a home.  Everything from furnishings to cooking, sewing to the latest fashions, hand-crafts, sheet music and more were a part of each issue.  Sarah advocated the values of education and women in the workforce, and Godey's published original works by American authors, including Sarah's poem "Mary Had a Little Lamb".  She was largely responsible for President Lincoln proclaiming Thanksgiving a national holiday. 

"No influence is so powerful as that of the mother." Sarah Josepha Hale
