Interview with Seminole needleworker Lottie Huff

Interview with Seminole needleworker Lottie Huff

Two reel to reels. Huff discusses (through Hall) patchwork sewing including when and how she learned the craft; patterns and designs; the choice of colors and fabrics; clothing styles; patchwork designs; and sewing machines. She also describes her childhood; her family; chickees; childhood stories; glass beads; the Green Corn Dance; and differences between Creek and Seminole peoples. The recordings were created for the Florida Folklife Program's Seminole Slide and Tape Project, a program sponsored by the American Express Company in 1982-1983 to create two educational slide/tape programs for use by schools, community groups, and other educational outlets. One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10. Teacher guides, program scripts, and documentation of the project can be found in S 1595, Box 1.
