Brenda LaLonde

Brenda is a fourth generation Cajun seamstress from Cecilia, Louisiana. She learned the art of sewing as a young girl, and her interest has since led her to adopt techniques for a wide range of Cajun cultural crafts, including spinning, weaving, soap and candle making, and open-hearth cooking.  

 With her background as a seamstress, Brenda is also very good at making rag dolls, a traditional Acadian craft. She has led many workshops on her various talents, including those held at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Jean Lafitte Acadian Cultural Center. She has also demonstrated on local television programs.  

 Brenda is fluent in French, a skill she has honed as a living history artisan at Vermilionville for many years.
