Changing Patterns

Ellen Collinge

Wheatmark, November 2009
ISBN: 9781604943351


Author Ellen Collinge presents an eclectic mix of true and not-so-true stories to pique the imagination of the reader in Changing Patterns. Having lived in eight western and southwestern states during her lifetime, she has accumulated a wealth of experience which is reflected in these stories. Tracing her family history back to Jamestown in 1619, Collinge tells a fascinating true story of a defining incident in her ancestry that occurred in 1644. Another story recalls how a Singer sewing machine purchased by her grandmother in 1878 ended up on display in the Colorado Historical Museum in Colorado Springs, where it remains to this day.
