First Tuesday Talks Lecture Series

Kay Demlow is the owner, designer and dressmaker of Lavender’s Green Historic Clothing, a homebased business in Hillsboro, Oregon. The business began with a love of the craft of fine sewing and a deep appreciation of historic preservation. Kay has created authentic reproduction clothing for historic sites, pageants, Oregon Trail wagon train travelers, media productions, theaters and living history reenactments. She creates and presents interpretive programs and fashion shows.
Kay Demlow is active in local and national historical groups. She is a member of the Hillsboro Historical Society, the Washington County Historical Society History Roundtable, Restore Oregon, Association of Living History Farms and Agricultural Museums, Friends of Historic Champoeg, Hillsboro Landmarks Advisory Committee and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. She is the founder and a coordinator of the Edwardian Society of Oregon. She not only studies and sews historic clothes; she wears her creations at historic events throughout the year.
