Sewing was an important part of lighthouse keeping

I got to visit this lighthouse and climb the 219 stairs, bragging rights! I did it on Lighthouse Day too!

A canvas curtain was placed on hooks and drawn around the lens room each morning before electrification to protect the lens from the hot Florida sun. Also, the keepers were required to wear a linen apron while cleaning and polishing the lens. When repairs were necessary and m the curtain or aprons, sewing skills were required.

Speaking of lighthouses, here are some lighthouse and nautical face masks and other sewed products for sale.

As you can see sewing was important to lighthouses, so is sewing today!
