The Sewing Room

Mary Cummings worked as a seamstress at Petworth House and at home. The workroom in the museum is set up as a sewing room. The treadle sewing machine dates from the 1890s and is complete down to the instruction manual. The sewing materials are also of the period and the room reflects the kind of work and fashions that she might have encountered.
