THE SAVVY SEAMSTRESS
by Colette Sasina

Betsy Ross lived in a quaint house,
239 Arch Street, with her spouse.
She sewed, did upholstery,
and enjoyed embroidery.

Her sewing talent was second to none.
Needle expertise impressed George Washington.
She sewed personally for this man by hand,
embroidered ruffles for his shirts and cuffs
using the finest notions and stuffs.

With church pews in close proximity,
their paths crossed every Sunday.
A social and family connection
inclined him in her direction when

in May, 1776, a Congressional committee--
Washington, General of the Continental Army,
Colonel George Ross, her husband's uncle,
Robert Morris, the colony's wealthiest citizen--
visited Arch Street, Philadelphia, on a mission.
to engage Betsy Ross with a flag commission.

They showed her a six-pointed star design.
She had an agenda, tried to be kind.
With scissors in hand, playing close to the hip,
Betsy cut a five-pointed star in a single snip.
Her efficiency sealed the deal and it would be
she would sew solo all the flags they would need.

The American Flag was endorsed June, '77--
a circle of 13 white stars in a blue heaven,
symbolizing a new constellation.
13 stripes, alternate red and white.

Betsy's daughter, heir to the commission,
eagerly carried on the tradition.
She sewed in the house her mom occupied
long after her famous mother died

A Memorial now, 239 Arch Street is preserved,
a unique honor Betsy Ross so richly deserved.

This website is wonderful! I work at our city's large museum as a costumer and historical interpreter. In one of our literacy outreach programs to inner city schools, I arrive in class in full costume "as" Betsy Ross, and proceed to tell the children about her life and story. They get so much more out of history this way! Your website has provided me all the information I need, and we give out the link to this site to the teachers and kids. Thank you so much!

I started collecting postcards when I was a child and have several thousand, which are cataloged and stored in picture albums. I have a few of the Betsy Ross House...sharing the name, "Betsy" has been inspirational to my study of history. My own son attended "Betsy Ross School" in California. Hopefully, we can visit the home someday.
